  • Archnemesis Dad: To Daniele. Dick has had a very difficult and tumultuous relationship with Daniele and they have gone many years or periods at a time without speaking to each other or having any kind of contact with one another. The first time that Dick speaks to Daniele is when he enters the Big Brother house during the season and this is after five years of not talking or having any contact.
  • Awesome McCoolname: Evel Dick is a pretty cool name.
  • Ax-Crazy: In some instances, some of Dick's behaviour came off as bullying and made him come off psychotic and crazy.
  • Badass: Dick is the strongest player in the game strategically and he outplayed everyone including his own daughter.
    • Badass Boast: He can call people out like no other and he is definitely not afraid to do so, even it starts chaos and drama.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Dick wins the season over his daughter Daniele by a 5-2 vote. One of the votes, which was casted by Eric as America's Player, was chosen by America and they chose to vote for Dick to win.
  • The Bartender: Dick manages a bar for a living.
  • Base Breaker: Most fans either find him to a repulsive, abusive, misogynistic, chain smoking complete asshole with a daughter who hates him, or a loving father with a punk rock motif who doesn't take fools lightly.
  • Big Bad: Dick is the villain of the season.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Dick is loud, abrasive and aggressive but also fun loving.
  • Born Lucky: The America's Player twist definitely benefited Dick in the game, including at the very end, when America voted for Dick to win.
  • The Bully: Displayed highly intimidating and bullying tactics and behaviour towards the other houseguests. Dick's main target for bullying was Jen.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Dick makes it clear that he is okay with being the villain.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Dick says the F word a lot, almost like it is part of his everyday vocabulary. See Sir Swears-a-Lot.
  • Cool Shades: Wears sunglasses from time to time.
  • Cool Old Guy: Dick is the oldest houseguest of the season and he is also very hip and fun loving.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: See Genre Savvy.
  • Dark Is Evil: Dick wears primarily darker colours, especially black.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Dick is extremely sarcastic and snarky.
  • Death Glare: Dick gave a lot of these to many of the houseguests, but he mostly targeted his death glares at Jen.
  • The Determinator: During the last HOH competition. Or how about throughout the entire game?
  • Even Jerkasses Have Loved Ones: Although he has a very rough relationship with her, it is clear that he loves his daughter Daniele.
  • Evil Genius: Dick is very intelligent despite his loud and brash personality. He was the major reason why Dick and Daniele made it to the Final 2, because he depended on strategy.
  • Evil Gloating: Dick is constantly bragging whenever he wants to.
  • Evil Is Cool: Although Dick is the Big Bad, he is a pretty cool villain.
  • Evil Is Petty: Many of Dick's tactics towards other houseguests were downright cruel and mean.
  • Evil Overlord: How the house saw Dick. The houseguests thought that Dick was a bully and a tyrant who ran the house and tried to intimidate others in order to get the results he wanted.
  • Expressive Hair: Dick's hairstyle is a mohawk and therefore, it is pretty noticeable.

    • Jerkass Has a Point: Dick may be very aggressive and mean spirited, but when he is calling people out on their hypocrisy or their stupid behaviour, he is astonishingly right.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold/Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Could be considered a cross between the two. Although Dick is a huge jerk and is very mean towards the other houseguests, his biggest weak spot is his daughter. There is nothing that Dick wouldn't do for Daniele, even if he has to sacrifice his own game.
  • Kick the Dog: Continues to bully Jen even when she is at her lowest point (which is nominated and set on being evicted).
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: Does this to Jen even when she was nominated and backdoored and was going to be evicted. What does Dick do? He decides to rub it in her face that she is going home by tormenting her. After Jen destroyed Dick's cigarettes to get back at him for bullying her, Dick decided to get back at her by taking her clothes and hiding them. He then follows her around and continues to taunt her, which leads to a major argument and blow out between the two. Dick begins to taunt Jen about her breaking her non-eating punishment when she decides to eat against the rules (Jen ends up receiving a penalty vote as a result of breaking the rules). The heated argument between Dick and Jen heats up when Dick begins smoking and blowing smoke in front of Jen when she is eating (knowing that Jen hates smoking and the smell of cigarettes to begin with). As Jen tries to take the cigarette away from Dick, Dick purposely burns her with the lit cigarette. Talk about kicking them when they are really down.

  • Morality Pet: His daughter, Daniele. Even when she makes clear in no uncertain terms that she hates him, he still tries to be a good father to her (though their "long-time estrangement" turned out to be fake, since it came out that they previously had applied to be on The Amazing Race as a team).
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Evel Dick.
  • Papa Wolf: Even though he has a very strained relationship with Daniele, he did everything and anything possible to make sure Daniele was safe in the game. Including making himself a target.
