Is there a way to catch up on live feeds or do you have to sign up and pay for the CBS deal?

This part isn't true.

Elsewhere, Kaitlyn used the ‘n’ word in reference to black houseguests Spencer and Candice, while David moaned about his sheets being ‘dirty’ because the latter had touched them.

She almost said the 'n' word, but as a synonym for "dude" - not actually in reference to anyone. And Spencer is not black lmfao.

But yeah, everything else is true.

I'm not at all surprised the one from San Marcos TX was one of the ones making racist comments. I'm American and this is why I watch BBUK. The American version (like every American version of foreign shows) is total garbage and not worth watching at all.

There'd be instant warnings if that was said over here. Big Brother over there seems to be more relaxed than ours. In fact, I'm not even sure that they'd allow this to be broadcast in ours. That's pretty harsh stuff. There'd be a flood of complaints if this was said in our Big Brother.

If that's not what you'd call racism I don't know what is.

I don't blame you. My view of American culture is quite low and I'm American. There's a reason many of us here seek out UK shows - they're better and much more intelligent. Most of what passes for entertainment here would make you shake your head in disgust.

yeah,. the bloodthirsty mob outside chanting against and booing housemates and their families is the supreme example of intelligence and class.
not to mention the uk/aus has had all kinds of issues in the house including racism/sexism/assault, etc
no one is better than the other, everyone has flaws.
and big brother certainly doesn't represent a culture (uk/aus/usa or any others) it's a miniscule blip on a greater radar.

Yes, EastEnders, The Only Way is Essex, and The X Factor are so much more intelligent than Breaking Bad, The Wire, Arrested Development, Mad Men, Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Game of Thrones, and Homeland.

This collection of housemates are particularly bad, but it's hardly a random snapshot of America. Some casting director picked all these people out of thousands of options. And even that large pool of candidates are self selected from the type of obnoxious narcissists that would want to be on a show like this. They've managed to have 14 seasons with only a few instances of bigotry, none as widespread as this season, so all this proves is that whoever does their casting did a bad job this year.

The real scandal is how they are censoring it so most of the audience have no idea it's even going on. They're having the viewers vote on MVP to influence the game, yet it's based on such an artificial edit that doesn't give an clue about whats really happening.

I've just seen this now on another site and I cannot believe some of the things they have said and gotten away with. And if anybody doubts that the comments are racist, and homophobic, then I'm sorry ...but you're also racist and homophobic.

Saying the Asian contestant needs to be serving them some rice, and that some sheets are dirty because 'black Candice' had been on them (and later admitting it was bloody racist) is not freedom of speech either. It's insulting and degrading, and I'm sure they be the first ones complaining if anybody was to treat them in the same way.

I'm seriously gobsmacked they are allowed to continue being on BB after such vile language. All of those quotes are diabolical.

Ugh.
