Big Brother US producers have intervened after contestant JC Mounduix was accused of sexual misconduct.
During the show’s live feeds on Wednesday night (August 29), Mounduix was involved in two separate instances that were heavily criticised by viewers.
In the first, houseguest Haleigh Broucher was in the bathroom when Mounduix opened the door. He wouldn’t close it despite Broucher asking him to, and proceeded to tie the door open, prompting Broucher to shout for production to step in and stop him.
Broucher later revealed that an executive producer had spoken to her, but said that she didn’t want to get Mounduix “in trouble”.
The second incident saw housemate Tyler Crispen sleeping, while Mounduix kissed his armpit and repeatedly touched Crispen’s body.
The following day, Thursday (August 30), Crispen said: “I’m sleeping alone tonight… JC is not sleeping with me.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, all parties involved in the incidents have been spoken to and Mounduix will remain in the house. No official complaints were made by either Crispen or Broucher.
Digital Spy has reached out to CBS for comment.
This isn’t the first time Mounduix has caused controversy in the house. Earlier this month, he came under fire after he asked one of his fellow stars whether she was trans, and he was also slammed for using the N-word.
The BB US cast were also given a warning of “future consequences” by producers after Mounduix tried to touch housemates’ genitals with an ice cream scoop.
CBS said in a statement at the time: “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 behaviour 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 behaviour and offensive comments, as well as future consequences. These events will not be part of any future Big Brother broadcast on CBS.”
