Big Brother is an absolute cesspool of the worst trash America can produce, and I haven’t watched it in several seasons, ever since I stopped having to cover it for another job. They bring all the racists, bigots, homophobes and every other awful type of person on national TV and encourage them to be horrible for the sake of ratings and it’s all really messed up. Well, now CBS is trying to turn things around, by capitalizing on Caitlyn Jenner‘s recent reveal and putting a transgender contestant in the Big Brother house.
MZ has learned Audrey will become the first transgender on the U.S. version of the show, and she plans to use the program as a showcase … similar to what Caitlyn Jenner has been doing.
Audrey grew up in a small Georgia town as a boy, and life was far from easy. We’re told when she transitioned several years ago, her family had a hard time accepting it, but they’re now fully supportive and on board.
The 25-year-old was inspired by Caitlyn Jenner’s story, but she’s also just a big fan of “Big Brother.”
It’s a dicey move for producers, given the show has had its share of racist and homophobic houseguests. The show runs a livestream 24/7 and things happen. But we’re told it will all become a teaching moment and Audrey is pumped.
To be honest, I think it’s great that there’s representation for the transgender community on TV, I just don’t necessarily know that Big Brother is the best place. Then again, minority groups have to deal with prejudice on a daily basis in real life, and if Audrey thinks she can take it, then that’s amazing and she should be applauded.
