Big Brother 20 still hasn’t made it to the first live eviction, but there have already been two shocking incidents which left viewers so upset that CBS had no choice but to issue a statement.
Big Brother producers have also already been seen calling houseguests in to speak with production and to warn them about their offensive behavior.
It all started with JC Monduix, a dancer from Miami who now lives in LA. JC has been accused of sexually inappropriate behavior while living in the BB20 house.
JC was seen on the CBS live feeds as he grabbed at Tyler, who didn’t seem too upset by the contact. He has also chased women in the Big Brother house with an ice cream scooper while making scooping motions at their genitals. He also egged one houseguest on to show everyone her “p***y.”
On Tuesday it was reported that JC had been called in to production about his behavior. After the fact, he stopped himself more than once, commenting that he was told to tone it down.
It looks like Rachel Swindler and Angela Rummans also have been put on notice after making offensive comments while talking about their tans. Thankfully, even CBS thought that calling a tanned stomach “ghetto” and claiming to change ethnicities by staying in the sun too long was over the top.
“Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and capturing every unfiltered moment and conversation in their lives. At times, the houseguests reveal prejudices and exhibit behavior that we do not condone,” CBS said. “The producers have addressed two such incidents that were seen recently on the 24/7 online feed. In both cases, those involved have been warned about their inappropriate behavior and offensive comments, as well as future consequences. These events will not be part of any future Big Brother broadcast on CBS.”
Big Brother houseguests have been accused of inappropriate behavior in the past, and much like now their actions resulted in a statement or disclaimer from CBS similar to the one above.
While CBS won’t be airing any of the shocking behavior on the network, it’s worth noting that everything the BB20 houseguests do can be seen on the CBS live stream.
Only once in the history of Big Brother has someone been removed from the house without a formal eviction ceremony. That happened during Season 2 when Justin Sebik was removed after holding a knife to the throat of Krista Stegall.
Big Brother 20 airs on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8/7c and Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS.
