Dustin Diamond’s ecstatic about his “Celebrity Big Brother” eviction.
Last week’s announcement that Elizabeth Berkley and Leah Remini (and Snooki!) will be competing on the new season of “Dancing With The Stars” had everyone stateside doing cartwheels, so it mayyy have overshadowed the fact that another “Saved by the Bell” star was making waves across the pond. Last month, Dustin Diamond followed in Sitch‘s and Speidi‘s footsteps as one of the American stars to bunk up on the UK’s “Celebrity Big Brother,” but sadly, he was ousted in a double eviction on Friday night.
Screech was the fourth celeb cast out of the series’ 12th season, but unlike most contestants, he seemed pretty happy to be gone from the game. Two days before he was evicted, the actor admitted the competition wasn’t his cup of tea, describing his feelings in the video below with a rather tragic (but understandable) analogy: “This is like being forced to play monopoly when someone’s got, like, three corners and they’ve got all the houses and hotels.” Guess ninjas like to play fair.
Check out the clip, and don’t miss Screech on “Saved by the Bell,” weekday mornings on MTV2!
