BB owes him a car...at the very least a car of comparable value. He won it fair and square and it's not his fault or problem that BB screwed up on ownership. If that TMZ story is even true. They may ask him to settle for the 24 K...but I'm sure Memphis is savy enough to hold out for more...especially if the car is indeed worth $70 K like the article says.

BB and CBS won't want to get negative publicity out of this...they'll cough up the extra dough or perhaps buy him a brand new car...and from the article it sounds like they plan on making good on their end of the deal anyway...so no reason to be smacking anyone on the head.

yes ceci, that is all we can hope for, if he does invest that it would be successful, as far as that silly car, yep he prolly shoulda taken the mustang, we read that it was better than the other one anyway, really it is shitty of CBS.

In the first episode of BB10, Memphis won a sweet 1969 Camaro in a car-pulling contest (don't ask). Small problem -- "Big Brother" couldn't give the car away because the show didn't own it. We're told someone else actually held the title. In fact, the car had already been returned to the owner almost immediately after the contest.

Memphis the Mixologist was none the wiser because no one told him about the snag while he was inside the house. But on Tuesday, Memphis gained his freedom, losing to Dan, and learned the car he had come to treasure wasn't really his. Another problem -- the car has been repainted since it was on the show.

We're told producers are now scrambling to buy the car from the real owner. Sources say the real owner will turn the keys over for $24,000. A '69 Camaro online sell for anywhere between 7 and as much as 80 grand. Fact is, Big Bro doesn't have a lot of bargaining power, so they are more SOL than HOH.

We made several calls to "Big Brother" -- so far, no comment.

After a test drive, he decided he didn't want the CAR anyway. (Click the "CAR" link for more)

After setting up a test-drive to see if he wanted the classic car -- which "Big Bro" would've had to purchase from the rightful owner -- Memphis realized the gas-guzzler wasn't for him and chose to pocket an undisclosed amount of greenbacks instead.

I hope he had April in on negotiating the value of car...by now it has to be worth at least $200 K...:rolleyes:

Yeah, Dan was on one of our local radio shows this morning, and he said Memphis took a cash settlement, but he didn't think he was allowed to say how much. He IMPLIED it was a nice chunk of change, though, and that Memphis was pretty happy with it.

Different network... Different car... Yes same model and same year, but there were a lot of things different, not to mention it was the car of the fathers dreams according to the father, and that's why they had that particular car there...
