"Big Brother" fan-favorite backed by Legendary father, Sid
Throughout the summer, WWE Legend Sid faithfully tuned in week after week to “Big Brother 14” on CBS. Is the two-time WWE Champion a die-hard fan of the hit reality series with a cult-like following? Well, not exactly. He was watching to see his son, Frank Eudy, compete for $500,000.
Frank, 28, learned after the “Big Brother 14” finale that his proud papa was watching and cheering him on up until his eviction on day 62 of the game, which pits a group of competitors (or Houseguests) in a camera-filled house to plot against each other for three months.
“Honestly, I knew my dad was always going to root for me no matter what it is I’m doing,” Frank explained to WWE.com. “He’s always going to support me, even though we might not talk as much as we used to. I know it’s not exactly his type of show, I was a little surprised to find out he got into as much as he did.”
While Frank didn’t win the $500,000 prize, he won $25,000 in “America’s Vote” when he was chosen by the viewers as their favorite Houseguest.
“I’m a big fan of the show, so knowing that the fans voted me America’s favorite Houseguest is almost as good as winning the whole game to me,” he said.
A fierce mental and physical player, Frank won many competitions on “Big Brother 14,” and the other Houseguests often tried to evict him from the game. During a vignette on the CBS show, Sid said his son was targeted because “he’s one of the best.” ( WATCH) Frank was elated to find out his dad was his biggest cheerleader (he’s been seen donning a T-shirt emblazoned with Frank’s trademark wild hairdo) and is certain Sid is proud of his intensity and sometimes vocal play in the game.
“Knowing my dad, he has trouble keeping his cool, and I try to keep my cool as much as possible. I’m sure he was out there rooting for me when I was giving those big yelling matches with those people like I would sometimes,” he said with a laugh.
While Frank hasn’t spoken to his father since the show’s finale last week, he plans to see Sid and the rest of his family and friends soon. Frank credits much of his incredible game play to them.
“I am who I am because of my parents. I owe pretty much all of it to them, and I was really close with my nana and have been for these last couple of years,” he said. “They have shaped and molded me to the person I am today. I absolutely have them to thank for being the player I was in the game.”
Growing up the son of a WWE Legend has given Frank many fond memories of watching his dad’s career and meeting some of his own heroes.
“I remember one time I met Robocop, when he was doing a guest spot on one of the shows. That was pretty neat for me because I was a big Robocop fan,” Frank enthusiastically recalled about WCW Capital Combat 1990.
“I loved those days back when Sting was in the bright-colored makeup and he and Dad used to battle it out on a nightly basis. I used to be able to go on the road with Dad sometimes and watch some of those matches. Oh man, there’s just so many times!” he said.
“I remember there was that time him and Hulk Hogan, they were tag team partners for a little bit and then they turned on each other. I remember it was just a one-time thing, but I remember that specifically, too. There have been a lot of good memories. He put on a bunch of good shows,” Frank recalled.
“I remember he came back with The Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels, and he was his bodyguard there for a while. That was a great little stint, too!”
While he may have grown up watching his father get in the ring, Frank hasn’t felt the calling to become a Superstar like so many children of WWE Legends do.
“I don’t think I ever wanted anything like that for me, especially because I’m not as big as Dad is,” he said with a laugh. “I’m one of those body types that would have to be doing flips off the top rope. I just don’t think I’m suited for that.”
Frank is enjoying time to decompress since getting out of the “Big Brother 14” house, hanging out with fellow Houseguest and mentor, Mike “Boogie,” in Las Vegas. After his upcoming trip to visit his family in Memphis, Tenn., the road is wide open for the “Big Brother” fan-favorite.
“I’m pretty realistic in the sense that it’s very possible I’ll just be some reality TV jabroni that everybody will forget about in a week or two – and if that’s the case, that’s the case. I still got to live my dream of making it on that show. I tried hard for three years to do it, and I got the full experience and had a blast doing it. I’d absolutely be open to whatever opportunities might come my way, though.”
