Big Brother 9: More Headaches Emerge for CBS

BB9 Crazy James is getting a lot of publicity for this season but so far it has been for all the wrong reasons. One contestant’s past as a gay porn actor is making headlines while an offensive term used by another on the show has lead Lowe’s to yank its advertising during the broadcast.

First, it has been confirmed with only a lazy and totally NSFW search of the internet that house guest “Crazy” has appeared in several gay adult videos prior to the show. The 21-year old Sarasota, Florida man is also reportedly an ex-stripper. No big deal except his bio on the Big Brother 9 website claims he is a single, straight man who was recently engaged to an older woman. This season of Big Brother 9, subtitled ‘Til Death Do You Part has house guests paired up with another person who might be their “soul mate”. (So far it’s not looking like any of the house guests have made a love connection in fact some of them absolutely hate the person they are paired up with.) James’ partner on the show is Chelsia, a college student from Iowa. So far the two of them have gotten along quite well though not romantically.

James past emerged front and center earlier this week when Dirtyboyvideo.com began promoting videos Zinkand made for them on its home page.

An offensive comment made by one of the contestants on TV’s has a national autism group demanding an apology from . Even more troubling, the man who made the comment is described on CBS’ website as a public relations manager for a Florida-based autism group.

The comment was made during the Season 9 premiere last Tuesday. John Gilmore, executive director of a different group called , says he has been trying to talk to CBS about the gaffe since the show aired but has had no luck. Now the group is trying to convince CBS advertisers to turn up the heat on the network.

The incident in question happened while , who says he works for the (UNIAF), was talking about how he would spend his Big Brother winnings. He told his partner on the show, Sheila, that he would use them to open a hair salon for people with developmental disabilities “so them retards can get it together and get their hair done.” The politically-insensitive word shocked Sheila, a 45-year-old former Penthouse Pet. She immediately demanded that he not use that term. Jasinski simply replied that he works with disabled kids all day long so it is okay.
