Racist talk and sexual harassment escalating in the Big Brother Australia house

After posting about racism, sexism, assault, and the differences in response between BB UK and BB Australia, I missed Big Brother on Friday night.

And oh boy, did I miss something. Terri, avowed Pauline Hanson supporter, “joking” about Nobbi’s “slanted”, “slitty” eyes, including loud wondering about how on earth Nobbi can see out of them. Then Terri and Terrence have a protracted, wounded freakout about how oversensitive and politically correct society is these days.

Tonight? The show has only just started here, but it’s opened with Terence telling a “joke” involving him doing an exaggerated accent (a hypothetical Vietnamese kid called “Viet”), and Terri laughing her arse off.

But it gets worse. The Eye reports that Nobbi and Rory retaliated by exposing their penises to Terri in the spa in a hostile manner, with Nobbi then taunting her: “Geez, Terri, don’t you like Asian dicks?”

And Rory then confesses that he has been sexually harassing Terri in the shower for weeks, waiting for her to be around and then masturbating.

Some video of the spa episode, from here:

The Eye and Behind Big Brother report that the show is furiously deleting all mention of this from their forums, and has banned some members for asking why.

  1. And Rory then confesses that he has been sexually harassing Terri in the shower for weeks, waiting for her to be around and then masturbating.

    Let me guess: it’s just a joke ‘cos who could fancy a nana and she oughta be flattered and sheesh can’t she take a joke?
    Terri doesn’t seem like any prize, but you have to wonder whether after weeks of this she just fell back on a lazy way of getting a little revenge with the racism. Doesn’t excuse it of course.

    And they still appear mystified as to why ratings are dropping. People don’t like being “managed”, BB.

  2. Reason 19,276 to not watch Big Brother. 😐

    I suspect that would be Rory’s take, but Nobbi seems to have had more experience at being an arsehole. His angle was – “I treat everyone in the house equally no matter what their age, and I sexually harass all the girls, so I sexually harass Terri too, even though she’s an old bat. See, I’m really enlightened, and you’re just an ageist stick-in-the-mud, and can’t you see I’m the victim here?”
