What Is A Fruit Loop Dingus? 'Big Brother' Fans Need To Know
The Big Brother dictionary, if ever there is one, will sure to be a New York Times bestseller with the amount of times it has been referred to, or was needed, this season on Big Brother . Terminology has long stemmed from pop culture, and Big Brother lingo is no exception. Inside the house, where the houseguests are completely cut off from the outside world, they have a lot of time on their hands to come up with new terms for them to use and for America to laugh at — I mean, use as well. This season, we were give a little dictionary tour of what the definition of “floater” would be, and according to Zach, there would be a photo of Christine and Jenn City holding hands as the definition. But beyond his skills of defining words, Zach also creates them, and then leaves us to deciding on a definition. Enter: Fruit Loop Dingus.
We all remember it well. How could we not, as we watched in pure confusion as to what was being said. “Did he just call her ‘fruit loop dingus?” people would be whispering while watching at home. It would start gaining more and more popularity on Twitter, and even inspire some homemade Vine interpretations. But the question still stands, what does “Fruit Loop Dingus” actually mean? Let's revisit the moment that changed our vocabulary forever.
CBS provided us with this definition of the term on their site, but for some reason, I think there is a little more to the term.
Zach has even gone off in a new direction with a fun remix of the original to add to his repertoire of Big Brother terminology.
I give you: Fruit Loop Dingus Busta Fooligan
He even called himself a #FLD (can we get that trending?) when he didn’t win the Veto.
But was Zach really the original creator of the phrase? There is reason to believe Zach was inspired by Vine star Jordan Burt, who is known for his “Ya Dingus” catchphrase. You be the judge.
According to Nicole's Head of Household blog, her and Zach get along 95 percent of the time, so maybe Fruit Loop Dingus isn't such an insult, but more of a term of endearment? It's kind of like Home Alone's "Merry Christmas, you filthy animal" line... It isn't that endearing at first, but before you know it, Urban Outfitters is selling a hip sweatshirt with the phrase printed on it. If that happens with Fruit Loop Dingus, I'll be the first in line.
