CBS is allowing Big Brother: Over the Top to be rigged by production. Producers could be heard on live feeds during the 10/26/16 HoH competition cursing and cheering for Whitney to win over Danielle. CBS All Access viewers AND houseguests heard this over live mics from the control room. As a subscriber, I am both insulted and disgusted that CBS is allowing this. Now that the veil was lifted, we see that production is openly favoring certain houseguests over others. America’s Votes for nominations, have-nots, care packages and evictions are a farce, determined not by our votes but by who producers want to see advance in the game. CBS, how can your subscribers trust you when you are allowing production to influence and determine the game? Production is supposed to be neutral, but has clearly picked favorites, proving that voting results cannot be trusted. Does CBS have a winner selected with their name already printed on the $250K prize check? People are angry at this turn of events, and CBS NEEDS TO RESPOND.
Additionally, CBS is allowing Scott to openly bully Danielle as a strategy of “psychological warfare.” He brazenly promised over the last few days on live feeds that he would torment her if America voted out Neeley instead of him. When confronted by Jason Roy on 10/26/16 at 8:43 p.m. PT, Scott defended this as strategy instead of recognizing that he is intentionally personally attacking another houseguest. The rules are supposed to prevent houseguests from bullying one another, yet Big Brother didn’t step in on Danielle’s behalf. Scott was encouraged by The Ball Smashers, a.k.a The Plastics (Morgan, Alex, Shelby and Whitney) to follow Danielle around the house and verbally abuse her. Scott should have been warned by producers to stop and should have received a penalty vote for his antics, which left Danielle in tears and led to her admission of having a history of being bullied and physically assaulted. Jason also admitted that he is psychologically scarred from a history of sexual abuse. This goes so far over the line of human decency that it’s not a game. Scott often calls himself a super fan and compares himself to legendary Big Brother players. He fancies himself as Dan, Derrick and Evel Dick combined. None of them ever treated their fellow cast mates with such disdain. This goes beyond “pots and pans.” Scott’s behavior is disturbing, but Big Brother’s failure to intervene is negligent.
CBS, your subscribers and houseguests deserve better. Are the votes really from paid subscribers? There are theories floating around that people can sign up for free All Access trials from multiple email accounts in order to rig voting. Now, we have proof via live feeds that producers have favorites and may rig votes to favor certain players or alliances. In any case, quit rigging the game and enforce the rules. CBS, please don’t ruin Big Brother.
