Welp, once again, I was right. If you recall as soon as the Big Brother cast was revealed, UF and I gave out immediate reactions to the new hamsters. I said of Caleb Reynolds,
“He seems like an asshole. He’s arrogant. His strategy is to hang back at first. I don’t think he will be able to stick to that. He seems likely to piss everyone off. He does not seem smart. He plans to have multiple showmances. I would not want to sleep in the same room with him. He seems a bit PTSDy.”
To add to the creepiness factor, someone claiming to be Caleb’s dad, posted this in comments. “Paul June 20, 2014 at 5:17 am __Good choice Jacque, Caleb is my son and one of the best human beings you could ever meet. He is in an unfamiliar place and circumstance. I only hope everyone gets to know the Caleb that is my son”
Aren’t all of the players in an unfamiliar place and circumstance? As I was working on this story, (this time UF is chaining me to the radiator. How did this happen?) I played Caleb’s interview with Rachel Riley. He points out that his father and his brother are both pastors. When he tells his story about applying to be on TAR, he sort of folds under Rachel’s questioning.
Then he tells a story about how he has been fighting all his life and wanted to go into the military to fight for a cause. He moved from Kentucky to Texas to get deployed faster. And then he was sent to work in a prison, face to face with the enemy who taunted him and there was nothing he could do. He says he didn’t like it but he got through the 11 months and made it home and was out of the military. Now I am no military expert, but I’m pretty sure you can’t just quit because you wanted “cool convoy OPs” and got stuck in a prison. So to me, how he was “out of the military” was suspicious. Very suspicious.
Caleb’s actual job keeps changing as well. He’s an Adventure Hunting Guide, except in some interviews he says he is a dog groomer. There are people who are angry over some Youtube of Caleb killing a pig. This doesn’t bother me at all. I quite enjoy bacon. There seems to be issue with how the kill was done, (beat to death with a stick?) but, to me, if you are going to kill an animal and eat it, the how doesn’t really matter in the long run, so let’s put that issue aside. Except, now that I think about it, torturing animals (not there is supposedly a coyote incident as well) it’s leaning toward mental illness.
Today the Internet is blowing up with outrage that Big Brother has once again picked a racist, homophobic idiot to enter the house. There is a huge public outcry to replace him caused mostly because, we all think that Big Brother and Allison Grodner should have learned their lesson last year. But they haven’t. Big Brother fans wasted no time in doing some simple google investigations into the hamsters and this is what they found. Usually, Big Brother makes them lock up their accounts until the season is over, but that doesn’t seemed to have happened here.
In one small paragraph, this devout Christian from a family of pastors rants about “fags”, Democrats, Muslims, and refers to the POTUS as a monkey, a Muslim monkey to be precise. For now we will ignore the other crimes against humanity like the spelling issues and the use of “your” instead of “you’re” which is particularly important when you are calling out someone else for being ignorant. His “thoughts,” if you can even call them that, shift wildly between topics from gays (he hates them) to unborn babies (he loves them, unless they are gay, or black, or Muslim), domestic politics ( stalled) Democrats (they suck) and the POTUS (Muslim monkey) before ending his diatribe with “I’m done with you, your dimissed.”
Why didn’t the Big Brother people do at least a cursory Google search on this piece of shit before giving him a house key? Apparently they learned absolutely nothing after the racist nightmare of last season. Hell, I took one look at the kid and could tell there was something off about him. They really need to be very careful of males in their twenties anyway. That is when all sorts of latent mental illness begin to bloom. I don’t think their psychological test is very accurate. That douchebag Zach Rance also needs to be replaced. In one of his interviews he claimed he tricked the psych test. Given his level of intellect, for that to be true the psych test would have to be one question. Are you crazy? Please check yes or no. At this point, I’m starting to believe that is in fact the entire test.
Way to go Big Brother.
