If you’re a casual fan of Big Brother, you aren’t going to get the same experience as the people who watch the feeds.
If you pay a certain price, the feeds are available on the CBS website 24/7. They allow viewers to watch the houseguests’ every move. You can watch them eating, sleeping, showering — and making some pretty controversial comments.
For a long time, superfans have been upset with the way Big Brother portrays certain contestants on their aired episodes. Some houseguests get good edits they don’t deserve. Some houseguests get bad edits they don’t deserve.
Basically, if you’ve only been watching the episodes aired on television without checking to see what’s been happening on the live feeds, then you only know half the story.
Even though the show airs three days per week, it’s not enough time to show everything that happened, so it’s natural for the editors to leave certain things out. However, this year a lot of the story has been twisted. A lot of viewers are uncomfortable with the way houseguests are being portrayed.
Here are a few things that weren’t shown on the air:
1. The show hasn’t aired anything about Jackson sleeping with Kat.
The show has been giving Kat the crazy stalker edit even though she has good reason to be confused by the way Jackson has been acting. They slept together three separate times before he abandoned her for another woman. But the show hasn’t mentioned that fact. They’ve been making Kat look overly attached to him for no reason.
They’re making Kat seem like the crazy terrible unlikable player and Jackson the hero.. make it make sense CBS. Make it. Make sense. #BB21

I also can’t believe that the edit is showing Kat and Jackson as one-sided on Kat’s part when he has literally had sex with her #bb21

2. The show has left out all the nasty things Jack has said about David and Kemi.
Jack has been portrayed as the sexy, animal loving, Jason Momoa doppelganger — but in reality, he has said some unforgivable things about David and Kemi, the only two black houseguests. He also went on a power trip, ordering the rest of the houseguests not to talk game with the two POC players who were voted out of the game but are still living in the house with them (which was the big twist of the season).
Oh my god y’all are NOT about to give Jack this “nice boy” edit showing him giving 5 seconds of compliments out of the literal HOURS of trash that has spewed out of his mouth in the past week #bb21 show him for what he is

They had enough time to show Jackson breaking up with Kat but not enough to show Jack's reign of terror and segregation. #BB21 pic.twitter.com/EQdvgVKVmD

Seems like both Jack & Jackson were spoken to in the DR about some of their comments.
Jackson's reaction: "I F'd up." He's very upset
Jack's reaction: "Eh, fans will understand. I'm not going to change my behavior because of it."#BB21

3. The show has left out all of the nasty things Jackson has said.
Jackson hasn’t been getting the best edit after the way he treated Kat — but he’s done more than screw over his first showmance of the season. He’s also said some pretty nasty things about the POC people in the house. The Diary Room even had to intervene and warn him about his comments.
Jackson ranting about David at 5AM this morning…
Jackson and Clifford going on about David again.
Pure hatred for what?#BB21 pic.twitter.com/DJmh70yVtb

Last night, Jackson said he wanted to mule kick David in the teeth. He quickly realizes what he said & says it wasn't a threat. Jack tells him it WAS a threat, and to cool his jets. Holly chimes in to say she also needs to cool her jets because she's getting fired up.#BB21 pic.twitter.com/vRVe2gvLbs

Jackson apparently had a Come-to-Jesus meeting in the DR about his vitriolic comments about David.
He just whispered to Jack (pointing at the cameras) that he can't talk about it because "the live feeders will go back and look it up". #BB21 #Reddit pic.twitter.com/xYeiXvFtBv

4. The show has left out… all of this…
There’s been a lot of controversial things said on this season of Big Brother — and the show has only been on for two weeks. There’s no telling what the rest of the season has in store, but hopefully we stop getting updates like this:
Kemi just admitted DR keeps trying to make her talk like a stereotypical "sassy black woman" like "UH UH GIRLFRIEND" and it's annoying because she doesn't talk like that.
I can not stress it enough, but FUCK this show and FUCK everyone involved in production of it. #bb21

Holly: I didn't know if you were our slave now
Ovi: Woah. Slave is a strong word
Y'all complicit ass motherfuckers over there at @CBSBigBrother. #bb21

I'll call her Sis for this one.
Sis fucks Jack and now all of a sudden everyone from her best friend to Jack himself is shit talking her. Meanwhile they're giving Jack high fives and shit
GARBAGE. PURE GARBAGE. #BB21

If this season doesn’t get any better, hopefully next year the cast will be filled with more understanding, open-minded people who are there to play the game, not to find a soulmate or spread hatred.
