Big Brother's JC Accused of Sexually Harassing Season 20 Houseguests

Big Brother

Big Brother‘s JC Mounduix, who is currently competing on Season 20, has sparked outrage on social media after he appeared to sexually harass multiple fellow houseguests on Monday night.

As seen on Big Brother‘s live feeds (24/7 footage of the BB house and its occupants, to which viewers can subscribe via CBS All Access throughout the summer), professional dancer Mounduix was spotted attempting to place an ice cream scoop over other contestants’ genitals.

Mounduix seemed to try placing the item under life coach Kaitlyn Herman’s blanket, and was heard telling professional football player Kaycee Clark to “open up” her private parts, to which she responded, “No.” He also harassed male contestant Tyler Crispen, whose genitals he touched in a later interaction.

Though the houseguests have yet to discuss or complain about Mounduix’s behavior on-camera, many Twitter users expressed horror at his actions, with some BB fans calling for Mounduix to be booted from the show.

UPDATE: CBS has issued the following statement in response to Mounduix’s actions. The statement also addresses a separate controversy involving houseguests Angela Rummans and Rachel Swindler, who were criticized on social media Tuesday for making racist remarks.

Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and capturing every unfiltered moment and conversation in their lives. At times, the houseguests reveal prejudices and exhibit behavior that we do not condone. The producers have addressed two such incidents that were seen recently on the 24/7 online feed. In both cases, those involved have been warned about their inappropriate behavior and offensive comments, as well as future consequences. These events will not be part of any future Big Brother broadcast on CBS.

This is not the first time a contestant has made waves for inappropriate behavior. During Season 18, houseguest Frank Eudy received backlash for harassing women in the cast, particularly Da’Vonne Rogers, whom Eudy groped without her consent.
