Each year it seems like the producers go speak to a living legend they have on the show and tell them they are going to get voted off
. Instead of actually going through with the humiliation of being voted off because they just don't have the same popularity any longer they let them save some face and quit. Last night was that night for Billy Dee Williams. Barely hanging on last week he knew his time would be done so he pulled out over back problems. I'm sure he has them and I'm sure he is hurting, but I also think he wanted to go out on his own terms. Something like this seemingly happens every year. Back in the day Billy Dee Williams was a huge sex symbol and he was in the Star Wars movies and he was the spokesperson for the beer Colt .45 and he was everywhere. It was great to see him and to give people who didn't know who he was, a chance to talk about him for a few weeks.
