Dustin Simon Erikstrup was a fashion major at Columbia College. He then was a shoe salesmen living in Chicago when he became a houseguest in Big Brother series 8. Although Dustin's home town is Minneapolis.
Dustin ended up being evicted in week 7 of Big Brother. Entertainment Weekly has an article on the strange tactics that led to his demise and also an interview with Dustin Erikstrup. Dustin and fellow Big Brother houseguest Joe used to go out together.
However, all was not well between Joe and Dustin. After Joe's eviction, Entertainment World interviewed him about his claims that Dustin Erikstrup gave him gonorrhea, even though he admitted that Dustin's test was negative.
In the same interview, Joe claimed that Dustin did not like watching Big Brother and that, "everybody loves him when they first meet him, but the second you get to know him, pretty much everybody hates him."
