Dina Lohan may have seemed like the unlikeliest player to win Season 2 of “Celebrity Big Brother” when the competition started on January 21, but evicted houseguest Jonathan Bennett is adamant the mother of his “Mean Girls” co-star Lindsay Lohan will take home the title. “If Dina Lohan can make it to the final two, she will win!” Jonathan reveals in a recent interview with “The Domenick Nati Show.”
While Dina currently sits in third place in our Gold Derby odds behind Natalie Eva Marie and Tamar Braxton, Jonathan believes she has what it takes to go all the way. “No one has anything bad to say about Dina Lohan,” he explains. “If she’s in the final two, everyone will vote for Dina. So I’m praying she will make it to the final two because, Jesus, that would be amazing.”
The Lohans have not been prominent figures in the media in recent years, but Jonathan believes public perception of Dina is all wrong. “She’s kind,” he says of his friend. “She’s sweet and she’s really protective of her kids. She’s loyal to a fault and I think that’s one of the most beautiful things about her. She’s just a kind human being and she wants to take care of everyone.”
If anyone was wondering if Lindsay supported her mother’s decision to dip her toes into reality TV, Jonathan confirms that she’s Dina’s biggest fan. “[Lindsay] literally just texted me yesterday to talk about what was going on in the house,” Jonathan admits. “We’ve been checking in and talking with each other about Momma. She’s watching for her mom.”
Although Jonathan was only in the “Big Brother” house for 10 days, the first evicted houseguest echoed another competitor, Joey Lawrence, when asked who was the most difficult person to live with. “Joey said it perfectly,” he reveals. “Lolo [Jones] runs a little hot. She’s done two different Olympics. She’s gone to summer and winter and never gotten a medal. She’s come in fourth and I think that makes her even more competitive because she wants to go back and really win. I know that means a lot to her. I think that constant competitive edge of always wanting to prove herself can be a little dicey when you’re living in a house with people that aren’t used to that.”
When asked what goes on behind the scenes on “Celebrity Big Brother,” Jonathan was clear. “It’s ‘Big Brother,'” he says. “There’s no such thing as behind the scenes. It’s a lot more explosive and heated than what is portrayed on the network. It’s a more dynamic show on the feeds.”
