36 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets from Big Brother
Different versions have been canceled and suspended multiple times.
There are a number of Big Brothers worldwide and it’s rare to find one version without controversy. Because of some scandalous actions of contestants on the show, certain seasons have been axed and/or pulled from networks. One of the biggest scandals was in the UK’s Celebrity Big Brother 5 in 2007. The following season ended up getting canceled after racism in the house sparked outrage worldwide. Basically, an Indian actress named Shilpa Shetty was the subject of several racially-charged insults including houseguests refusing to pronounce her name correctly and even slurs. Even if the seasons don’t get canceled, the show will often put up disclaimers ahead of an episode if there’s anything really controversial. And specific contestants have been booted for their actions.
