Big Brother and CBS have been known to shy away from controversial topics in the past, but that's all changing this season. Big Brother All-Stars has already seen some giant statements from both houseguests and host Julie Chen, touching on subjects like Black Lives Matter and what it's like living with Autism. Kevin Campbell, who is openly gay, shared his perspective on judgment in the gay community, and how he's struggled to feel confident in his own personality. The houseguests questioned how Kevin could fail them. It's a huge responsibility.

It can be easy to forget that the houseguests of Big Brother 18 are real people, not fictional TV characters. Just as the houseguests can sometimes forget that America is watching them, Big Brother's many fans can use Twitter and other social media to trade comments and speculate on the houseguests in a way that is completely inappropriate. One houseguest, in particular, has been the cause of a lot of speculation this season and it's gotten way out of hand. In this instance, talk about whether Big Brother 18 houseguest Corey Brooks is gay has gone from initially playful to out of control. The hashtag notgaycorey popped up on Twitter after Corey explained to the cameras and his fellow houseguests that he is straight multiple times. Corey made some questionable remarks in the house regarding sexual orientation , such as saying a party was "so gay. The subject got to him so much, that he even apologized to his mother for people possibly thinking he wasn't straight.

After years of fan anticipation for another All-Stars season, Big Brother finally brought sixteen former houseguests back into the house for another chance to claim the half-million-dollar prize. Previous winners, runners-up, and fan favorites all returned for Big Brother 22 , a season that was sure to be full of big moves, cutthroat gameplay, and exciting drama. Unfortunately, fans were treated to a relatively boring season as one player dominated the game from Week 1, facing no resistance from the other houseguests.
He's also the genius who turned the "Big Brother" franchise upside-down by introducing a ballsy new strategy: voluntarily sneaking back into the closet so he could flirt with his female housemates to gain votes and favour. That controversial decision, while it ultimately bit him in his toned ass, added a complex and sometimes dark ethical and psychological thru-line to the Canadian reality TV series. HuffPost TV Canada spoke with Brain who was chilling with his sister in Calgary after having been the last non-jury member to be evicted from the house about "going straight" for pay, the story behind his beard, and who he'd date in the house. Were you surprised you were cast, given the fact that the reality-TV genre tends to favour more stereotypical gay contestants?
