The guide to knowing the problematic behavior of the Big Brother 17 Houseguests and (hopefully not) basing their close-minded principles on their game!
Audrey: (almost) spread a rumor about Becky being a racist as a means of game against Da'Vonne
Austin: sexually harassed Liz until she basically returned the feelings (although Liz doesn’t like him romantically); cheated on his girlfriend on the feeds and on TV (and admitted he wanted to break up with her but didn’t have the willpower)
Becky: demonized Audrey during the 12- houseguest house meeting (without the aforementioned there to defend herself)
Clay: has tweeted racist things in the past pre-Big Brother; was annoyed by everything Da'Vonne did after their blowup; was microaggressive towards Da'Vonne; had a conversation with Jace and Shelli about dating black women, thought it was funny to date a black girl, and referred to light-skin women as “yellow bone”; slut-shamed the twins for wearing bikinis
Da'Vonne: apparently made transphobic comments (about Audrey); accidentally misgendered her in the diary room
Jace: sexist, bullied Steve onto the verge of tears for a vote; masturbated next to John (rather gross than problematic); had a conversation with Shelli and Clay about dating black women and used the terms “mulatto” and “redbone” to refer to the different shade of black women’s skin color (granted he mentioned that he didn’t know whether or not the term “redbone” was derogatory or not)
Jackie: nothing to date yet
James: sexist; basically raped an inflatable giraffe
Jason: has a history of posting transphobic tweets from 5 years ago; has made transphobic comments (towards/about Audrey); called the twins fat in order to differentiate between the two; apparently body shamed Audrey because she didn’t want to wear a bikini
Jeff: sexist; called Jason a faggot; sexually harassed Liz; masturbated next to Liz and wiped his cum on her back; made advances towards Liz and told her that they would get her to jury so that they could all sleep with her; indirected Da'Vonne and said (black) people shouldn’t fear the police if they aren’t doing anything wrong
John: jokingly said to Steve that he didn’t have to ask permission for a kiss but to just take it
Julia: nothing to date yet
Liz: made fun of Jason’s financial situation; said the N-word (and apparently apologized for it right after); was microaggressive towards Da'Vonne and stated that if she wanted to fight she should’ve joined the BGC (even though Day wasn’t even fighting like she kept you safe for a week Liz); talked with Shelli about Da'Vonne being aggressive in general
Meg: has made transphobic comments about Audrey
Shelli: was microaggressive towards Da'Vonne and stated that she was handling her being on the block really well as if Da'Vonne was supposed to be an angry black woman; talked with Liz about Da'Vonne being aggressive; had a conversation with Clay and Jace about dating black women, saying to be careful when dating a black girl, and referred to light skin women as “lattes”
Steve: made/mentioned a homophobic comment (about/towards Jason); made fun of/stated James’ apparent inability to read his HOH letter
Vanessa: didn’t want to evict Audrey because of her status and offered her LGBT+ solidarity but didn’t offer Jason LGBT+ solidarity when she put him up as a replacement nominee; also placed a sexual orientation microaggresion on Jason saying that he should’ve just been the happy, funny gay guy and be quiet (about him being on the block I suppose)
This list is off of the knowledge of the fandom picking up and noticing the HGs’ behavior and it would annoy me so much when people would nit pick at a HG they didn’t like and would throw their problematic behavior in but their fave would do or say something just as problematic. The idea came to me when everyone was wondering how Shelli was racist so here’s the list. Please tell me NON-AGGRESSIVELY if I didn’t mention or missed anything on the list. This is completely unbiased and I spared no one, not even my faves. I truly haven’t seen anything about Jackie or Julia doing anything problematic, and Johnny Mac and Vanessa’s were kinda little things. But tell me if you disagree with any of these.
In spring of 1955, the Ferrers went to Italy and reoccupied the charming house in Albano, twenty miles outside Rome, where they had spent their honeymoon. One of their visitors was Jeremy Brett, who was playing Audrey’s younger brother in War and Peace.
“When I arrived at their house,” recalled Brett, shortly before his death in 1995, “Mel met me and under his right arm popped a little girl with no makeup who looked about sixteen years old — an exquisitely delicate, porcelain doll. I was spellbound. I remember swimming with them and banging my head on the side of the pool because I was so busy looking at her.” — excerpted from the book: Audrey Hepburn by Barry Paris
