Big Brother Video Election Donald Trump President

Watch Big Brother Contestants Find Out Who'll Be President — Two Days Later

Everybody knows who won Tuesday’s presidential election — everyone, that is, except the six people left on Big Brother.

The current season — Big Brother: Over the Top, available to stream on CBS All Access — is the first of the long-running reality series to take place during a presidential election. And as usual, the contestants are sealed up in a house together, with no access to news from the outside world. So it was up to host Julie Chen to tell them about Donald Trump’s shocking victory… two days after the rest of us watched it happen.

In the clip below, which aired live on Thursday, the six remaining contestants gather as Chen briefs them on the results: “It’s pretty safe to say you are the only six people in the country, maybe the entire world, who do not know who won.” After they beg her to tell them, she delivers the news: “The next president of the United States will be… Donald Trump.”

Safe to say, the contestants are more stunned by this than any out-of-the-blue elimination. Shelby can’t believe what she’s hearing: “What the f–k happened while we were in here?” Danielle reminds them that she told them the majority of voters are “older white Republican males.” And after lamenting, “Gay people, where were you? Minorities, where were you?” Jason asks, “Can we just stay in here for the next four years?”

Press PLAY on the video below to watch the shocked reaction of the Big Brother contestants, then give us your take in the comments.

    That pretty much sums up the feelings of every Democrat and Never-Trump-Republican in this country, yeah.

      As a NeverTrump Republican, I spent the entire night laughing. i didn’t want either of them to win. I’m starting to wish I did vote for Trump so I could take credit for all of the protests, college class cancellations, cry-ins, etc. though. I realize most of those people have never lost an election given their age, but come on. Stop being whiny little babies, you aren’t going to be on the winning end every Presidential election in your lifetime.

        There is a difference between ideological ideas between parties and electing a renowned racist with no basic impulse control. This sociopath has complete power that the “scary black man” never had with future control over all 3 bodies of government. No checks and balances. We are not whiny little babies. We are scared realists. I’ve lost presidential elections in my lifetime, but never felt I lost my country in the process. What he is going to enact is going to adversely effect more of his supporters than the so called elites who voted against him. They just don’t know it yet.

        • Ben says:

          Yeah, this is the sad thing for me. Trump turned out voters in droves who don’t understand how badly off many of his policies will leave them. But we will just have to see how that plays out.

          On the other hand, 4 years of seeing the reality of electing someone like Trump might be better off than not seeing it and still believing that someone like Trump might be what the country needs.

          And, in the meantime, maybe BOTH of the parties will recognise how much they’ve ignored so many people and will make their own changes so that next time America has better options with decent policies to look after everyone, not just the few, and without spewing hate.

          • maggie says:

            The main problem is that Trump will appoint at least one Supreme Court Justice, and that will have an impact for decades. Also, if he does some of the things he wants to do, like repeal Obamacare instead of just fixing the problems with it, there will be people who will lose their healthcare and may die because of that. Four years is enough time to have a terrible impact on people’s lives.

        • Coop says:

          You might want to review the power President Obama had with unchecked majorities in the House and Senate early in his Presidency. It’s literally the only way Obamacare got through the Republican filibuster in the Senate. The good ole filibuster will become the Democrats’ best friend again, just as it should. Hooray for checks and balances! As to the babies remark, we’ll have to disagree. See: Portland, last night.

        • Unbelievable says:

          You seem to have a very short memory or maybe it’s just selective memory loss… But that “scary black man” (your words, not mine) had complete control of ALL three bodies of government from Jan 2009 (when he was sworn in) through Jan 2011. No checks and balances there either. Get off your high horse and as Obama said so eloquently back then to John McCain.. I won, you lost…. get over it!!

      • Daya says:

        I can assure you it didn’t feel that bad/wasn’t this scary when W won. (I would’ve been totally cool with Jeb, actually.) I’m not protesting or anything, but I signed the electoral college petition for the hell of it. (Even though I doubt it means much.)

        • maggie says:

          I’ve voted before in elections where my candidate lost, and although disappointing, it never felt this depressing. This is different. It’s because Trump talked about policies that were so anti-American, like banning people of one religion, limiting the freedom of the press, ending birthright citizenship, etc.. He sounded like a fascist. His praise of Putin, and even Kim Jong-un, is frightening. Trump has called them both strong leaders, without seeming to understand that they arrest and even kill their opposition. The only freedom that Trump seemed to support was gun ownership. People are worried about the rest of our freedoms.

        • DJ Doena says:

          Without the electoral college it will only be ever about what the coastal and great lake cities want. Nothing else will matter. Also don’t make the assumption that the votes had been identical if popular vote would have been decisive. The campaigning certainly would not have.

  2. Scott says:

    actually Trump got quite a few of the minority votes (compared to Romney)

  3. Et al. says:

    What happened is Julie’s husband and his peers decided to craft a false horse race narrative for ratings and destroyed the country in the process.

  4. Michael Summerset says:

    And this is the same America who will vote for who wins BB. That must make them feel a little uncomfortable.

  5. S says:

    How is bbott? I’m Canadian and have no way of watching so just curious what the verdict on this version is? Just wondering if it’s as bad as I imagine it is?

    • Harry says:

      I personally think it’s the best season of BB in a while. The houseguests this season are actually here to play and want to win. The house is really divided between two sides and the power shifts are really amazing to watch, even if I personally find one side to be unbearable. Everyone brings something to the table. It might not be the most strategic season, but I have been so entertained and more invested in this season than any other recent season of BB.

    • Coop says:

      The cast is vastly superior to the one this past summer, which was easily the worst of all-time IMO. I checked out of that season earlier than ever. Producers probably wish they could have flipped which cast was on television.

    The American voters gave the keys to nuclear weapons to a unstable lunitic God help the world.
