Big Brother fans are upset over the show’s controversial season premiere. A lot of viewers walked away from the premiere feeling like one particular female house guest is seemingly being bullied non-stop. Though half the fun of reality TV is the train wreck aspect, society is also very aware of the problem of bullying now. In particular, Taylor Hale got the brunt of it, even from other females.
One of social media’s main talking points is that the other female house guests call Hale pageant girl rather than her name, a move that many found dehumanizing. Hale is also African American, which makes the bullying stand out that much more significantly.
Big Brother Fans Upset Over Season Premiere
“That said, fans aren’t necessarily hoping for the safety of Alyssa or Paloma at this point, thanks to their treatment of fellow female houseguest Taylor. Speaking quietly “backstage,” the two women agreed that “she cannot dominate like, being like the seductress of the guys” and only referred to her as “pageant girl” rather than by her name.”
Big Brother fans are upset over the show’s controversial season premiere, but isn’t that drama half of the reason many of us decide to tune in? It’s all about power dynamics and manipulation, and there is always someone who gets teamed up on. Big Brother is like a game of chess, with everyone trying to get the advantage. Social media also had a lot to say about it.
The irony here is that in picking on Taylor, they also created a fan favorite this season. That is the thing about chess. The dynamic always shifts. But that’s exactly what this show does so well. Creates dynamics that evoke discussion. Like it or not, Big Brother knows what it’s doing and does it well.
