I always tell anyone I cast on a show - DON’T DO ANYTHING YOU’LL REGRET LATER!
If I cast Willie Hantz on Big Brother 14, that’s what I would have told him – and maybe that would have saved him from getting ousted on Sunday’s episode.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the drama that went down, according to HuffPo:
After the Coach’s competition, Willie was put in the Have-Nots group for the week, and immediately got mad that his teammates were put there as well. He seemed to be trying to stand up for them in the game, knowing already that it would be very difficult for him to stay in now that Frank is Head of Household.
But things took an ugly turn when Willie deciding that he would get himself evicted from the house before the other players could get rid of him. What followed was an outpouring of rage and anger that culminated in Willie headbutting Joe before the live feeds were cut.
As seen on Sunday’s episode, Willie was subsequently ejected from the game.
So, this probably leaves a lot of Big Brother super fans royally pissed off at Willie.
Why would he get the chance of a lifetime to land a spot in the Big Brother 14 house and then squander his opportunity and fame and a $500,000 fortune?
My guess is that he probably wasn’t thinking big picture.
When you’re on any reality show – especially a fishbowl show like Big Brother – you tend to lose perspective on things.
Every waking moment is recorded. You are watched constantly. You can’t go to the bathroom without someone knowing. You can’t eat breakfast without getting interviewed about how your cereal tastes. It’s totally invasive and you are made to feel that you are the only person in the world that matters. No one in your real life would otherwise give a crap about how your cereal tasted, for example.
But on a reality show, your opinion MEANS EVERYTHING!
Why? Because opinions are the key ingredients for cookin’ up drama. And DRAMA = RATINGS.
So, my guess is that Willie was under so much stress about getting booted, that he thought it was a brilliant idea to get himself evicted. And I also bet that the Big Brother producers thought so, too. And they let him run wild and go nuts on people until they were legally obligated to step in when violence erupted.
Remember, when starring on reality TV, make sure you follow the rules to stay in the game, but always remember your MANTRA:
