Donato is now married to Big Brother 13 cast member Dominic Briones, whom she began a relationship with shortly after the 13th season ended. Her estranged father Dick Donato or better known as the notorious "Evel Dick" appeared on Big Brother with her for Season 8 in 2007.
When Daniele was first on Big Brother she worked as a waitress in Huntington Beach, California.
When it came down to Kail and Daniele, Daniele found Kail's Veto box, making Daniele the winner of the first Power of Veto competition.
While picking players for the Veto Competition, Daniele drew Jameka's name, Jen drew Dustin's name, and Kail drew Zach's name.
The competition titled The Numbers Don't Lie saw players having to bid how many hours they would be willing to do a horrid task. If a player had the lowest, they would be eliminated, but if a player was in the middle, they would not have to do the task.
When all six veto boxes were hidden, one by one, the players had a time limit to find another player's veto box.
The player whose veto box was not found would win the Power of Veto.
Aside from Big Brother, Daniele has appeared on the television show Reality Obsessed.
Daniele joined Big Brother 8 in 2007, along with her father, Dick.On Day 38, Jen used the Power of Veto on herself, and Daniele put Eric up, just as she had planned.Despite the Donato's wishes, however, their former allies turned on them, and on Day 41, Kail was evicted by a close vote of 4 to 3, receiving the votes of Jen, Dick and Zach.If a player fell off their pendulum, or their torso was raised above the bar, they would be eliminated.The last player standing would be the new Head of Household.The two re-appeared on the show for Season 13, but her father had to leave the first week due to personal reasons.
