On Thursday’s most recent episode of Big Brother, Minooka got a shout-out when a 2010 graduate appeared on the show wearing an MCHS T-shirt.

CBS’s Big Brother has been among the many competitive shows that have had viewers obsessed from the start. The show has been airing regularly since mid-2000 and is filled with intense mental games and surprising eliminations. Houseguests all have to battle it out in hopes  to stay in the house and win the grand prize of $500,000.

This season, a Minooka graduate made the Big Brother 20 house his home for the summer.

On June 27, Scott ‘Scottie’ Salton made his debut in the show hoping to fish out the most vulnerable players in order to keep his spot in the house.

During the eighth week of the competition, Salton sported a Minooka physical education shirt in the episode airing Aug. 23.  The shirt shows the Minooka “M” with and arrow through it, as well as the words “Fit to be an Indian.”
