Who doesn’t love reality drama? And Big Brother (and its different versions in different parts of the world – like Bigg Boss in India) always caters to what the audience wants. The American version of the controversial reality show – which sees unrelated individuals living together and doing their best to win the show – is nearing the end of its 25th season. That’s right, Big Brother 25 will announce its winner on Thursday, November 9.
As fans of the reality show stay glued to CBS to see what drama will unfold on the upcoming episodes (November 7th & November 9th) of Big Brother 25, I decided to look back at past seasons and rewatch on the many controversies surrounding the headlines. for.
A reality show like Big Brother makes daily headlines for what the contestants say and do, and every season has many such moments. After revisiting them all, I’ve put together a list of 7 of the most jaw-dropping, jaw-dropping moments that even made me swear.
From Jason Dent making fun of r*ping Kevin Schlehuber’s wife and Justin Sebik holding a knife to Krista Stegall’s neck and kissing JC Mounduix’s inappropriate behavior during Big Brother Season 20, these controversial moments will shock you just as much as they did they into me. Warning: The list will probably make your blood boil.
Justin Sebik Had A Kitchen Knife In Krista Stegall’s Neck & Kissed Her (Season 2)
In 2001, bartender Justin Sebik was kicked out of the Big Brother Season 2 house after he was seen holding a kitchen knife against housemate Krista Stegall’s neck while they were kissing. After this eviction, Arnold Shapiro – the producer of the show, told the New York Times that Justin was warned twice about his behavior and the threatening comments he made against the other contestants. He also revealed that Stegall was “not at all scared” by the incident, and that the team watching the contestants did not intervene as the ‘altercation’ ended within seconds.
Shapiro, while revealing that the incident did not happen, said that Justin Sebik had to speak with the show’s psychologist, after which he was told that he was being removed from the show. The then 26-year-old expressed disappointment at the decision and insisted the knife incident was a prank. Although the producer claimed that extensive background checks were done on Sebik before he was brought into the Big Brother Season 2 house, Krista Stegall sued CBS in 202 for not screening the bartender more vigorously. It was revealed that he had actually been arrested five times – with three of those being assaults. The case was dismissed in 2003.
Matt Hoffman Revealed His Wife Was Suffering From A Rare Progressive Disease (Season 12)
During the twelfth season of Big Brother, Matt Hoffman received backlash after he lied to his housemates to gain their sympathy and avoid being voted out of the house. Matt claimed she had melorheostosis – a rare, progressive bone disease that can lead to chronic pain and possible limb deformities. Although he told the contestants that he intended to use the $500,000 prize money for treatment, he admitted that his wife did not have melorheostosis or any other disease. The reason is – “Who would vote for a man who wants to save his wife’s leg?”
This led to controversy, with families of those affected by the condition crying foul over Hoffman’s behaviour. Although CBS disapproved of Hoffman’s tactic, Hoffman did not appear to regret his lie. In a post-elimination interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said he planned to stick with the lie until it was useless.
Jeff Schroeder Made Homophobic Remarks About Dumbledore (Season 13)
During the thirteenth season of Big Brother, Jeff Schroeder returned to the game and showed a personality unlike what the audience saw in Season 11. He went from being one of the most loved contestants in his first trip to courting controversies during his second, due to a few homophobic remarks he made regarding the Harry Potter series and the Dumbledore variety. After author JK Rowling announced that Dumbledore was gay, Schroeder – who apparently hadn’t read the books – said to his fellow contestants, “He’s in a school with little kids, you don’t want the to make that man gay.”
When asked to elaborate, he said, “I don’t think it’s right to have a little children’s book and have the principal that you’re locked in this magical land of being gay. I don’t think that’s the right thing to do.” As a result of this ‘discussion’ Schroeder chased her colleague Kalia Booker because she did not have the same views as him and even cursed at her. CBS did not televise Schroeder’s comments but issued a statement saying that Schroeder’s beliefs were his own and not broadcast by CBS.
Joe Arvin as Chief Willie Hantz (Season 14)
Willie Hantz was shown the door during Big Brother Season 14 when he punched fellow contestant Joe Arvin during Season 14. The incident – which took place in 2012, resulted in Willie’s severe curse on his housemates while in the kitchen. . During this episode, Joe Arvin said something – which bleeped out in the film, which offended Hanz. This led to him taunting Arvin in the bathroom, yelling, “Hit me!” A moment later, Willie nodded at Arvin.
As a result of this he was called to the diary room and the makers immediately took him out of the house.
Jason Dent Joked About R*ping Kevin Schlehuber’s Wife (Season 19)
During season 19 of Big Brother, Jason Dent received a lot of backlash after he joked about Kevin Schlehuber’s wife if Schlehuber put him up to evict him. Kevin’s wife, Deborah, responded to the statement and told TMZ at the time that it was the worst thing she had ever seen. Jason was not removed from the game and did not address the controversy in any post-event interview. At the end of the season, however, Dent and his wife Holly were seen spending time with Schlehuber and Deborah – they were even spotted together.
Inappropriate Behavior JC Mounduix (Season 20)
In 2018, when JC Mounduix took part in Big Brother 20, he was in the spotlight for several allegations of misconduct and sexual harassment. Although we saw him inappropriately touching the private parts of his fellow contestants with an ice cream scooter at the beginning of the show (he was warned about this), Mounduix also found himself in the eye of the storm when he was seen kissing Tyler Crispen’s. armpit and touching his body while sleeping.
He was also criticized when he opened the bathroom door when Haleigh Broucher was using it and refused to close it until the makers issued a warning. As a result Big Brother producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan released a statement saying, “Tyler and Haleigh explained to the producers that they did not feel in any way threatened, unsafe or badly harassed.” However, they said, “Had there been any indication of sexual misconduct by our houseguests, we and CBS would have taken immediate action.” Mounduix, who also used the N-word during his stay, issued an apology to the house.
Kemi Fakunle A ‘B*tch’ & ‘Dogsh*t’ Called Black Contestant Kemi Fakunle (Season 21) Jack Matthews
Jack Matthews was at the center of controversy for his racist comments during Big Brother Season 21. Matthews was seen speaking negatively about contestants of color like Kemi Fakunle on the live feeds. In a clip, he referred to her as a “b*tch” and “dogsh*t” and even said he wanted to “stab a mud hole through her chest.” He also used the term “rice pudding” when talking about guest house Isabella Wang. Jack also said he used the N-word during his time on the show.
