As a fervent BB “superfan” this isn’t really anything new for the show, though it’s still very unfortunate. Most seasons have featured contestants airing their prejudices in no uncertain terms on the live feeds (hell, CBS fave Jeff from a few years back dropped anti-gay slurs on more than a few occasions). What’s missing — and thus what the network should aim to do better with their casting — is houseguests willing to stand up and say “no thanks, that’s not ok” when they hear the bigotry spouted. (Or, you know, taking a page from the British Big Brother producers’ playbook and adhere to a strict “three strikes” rule leading to DQ if the bad words don’t stop — though the BB:UK team are way too quick to reprimand their players these days.) I get BB is a 24/7 game where you can’t really risk pissing anyone off, but most of the reason these remarks have to get swept under the editors’ rug is because there’s rarely a blowback from other contestants.
