Dan Gheesling schooled everyone on ''Big Brother 10.''

The sneaky 24-year-old high school teacher from Dearborn, Mich., won the voyeuristic CBS reality show's $500,000 prize last night after outlasting 12 other contestants inside a makeshift house on a Studio City soundstage. Gheesling was unanimously voted the winner by the show's jury, made up of the past seven evicted houseguests.

''My personality traits will play into my strategy and make this an easy summer for me,'' Gheesling said before going into the house in July.

Gheesling bested runner-up Robert ''Memphis'' Garrett, a 25-year-old Los Angeles bartender, who earned a $50,000 second-place prize. During the fourth week of competition, the pair formed an unstoppable secret alliance, dubbing themselves The Renegades and plotting to evict their fellow ''Big Brother'' houseguests.

Los Angeles waitress Keesha Smith was also voted ''favorite juror'' by viewers and won a $25,000 prize.

I'm sure all Dan's students are really proud of their teacher. He taught them how to cheat and lie and scheme your way to the top. I'm glad he's not teaching any of my children.
