The first Live Feeds exclusive chat, held on Wednesday, June 10, featured Big Brother 16 winner Derrick Levasseur. The fan question and answer chat was totally nuts, but we tried to capture as much of what Derrick had to say as we could.

The VIP Live Chat with Derrick Levasseur on Wednesday was sadly text only, but we could hear his humor and personality with every answer he posted anyway. And yes, it really was Derrick (some people did ask!). We spoke to him personally via Twitter prior to the chat and he confirmed he would be there.

Amusingly enough, Derrick entered the Live Chat ‘undercover’ (although it appears that was accidental) and just started talking. Fans thought he was a faker troll until CBS verified him!
