BB 15 day 17 Sunday

Good grief ! If Spencer loses his job over his BB utterances that will make three this season. This has never happened in any previous season. There have been a couple of evictions, 3 total , I think, by the producers because of behavior in the house, but this is the first time that external employers have fired someone while they were on the show.



‘Big Brother’ Remarks Could Derail Train Conductor: Report

One of the nation’s largest railroad companies isn’t happy with how one of its employees is conducting himself on “Big Brother.”

The company, Union Pacific Railroad, issued a statement about its employee, Spencer Clawson, 31 — a Union Pacific conductor from Conway, Ark. — who was reportedly caught on tape making homophobic remarks and seeming to praise Adolf Hitler.


The remarks were reportedly “aired” on the unedited Internet version of “Big Brother” that provides “live” 24/7 coverage of the CBS reality series.

Clawson is the third participant on the just-started “Big Brother” season to get in hot water with his real-life employer following revelations of unfortunate remarks on the Web version of the show.

“The values represented by Spencer Clawson’s comments during the ‘Big Brother’ show do not at all align with Union Pacific’s values,” said the statement, cited here on TMZ.com. “Mr. Clawson is on unpaid leave of absence while participating on ‘Big Brother.’ Union Pacific does not condone his comments.”


A portion of the statement seemed to hint that the company is preparing to dismiss Clawson. The company said it is “acting in accordance with Collective Bargaining Agreement terms regarding Mr. Clawson.” TMZ interpreted this as corporate-speak for “we’re preparing to fire him,” and we agree.

On the unedited “Big Brother” Internet feed, Clawson was reportedly heard calling another house guest “Kermit the F** [a pejorative for a homosexual]” and also “praising Adolf Hitler as a gifted speaker,” according to TMZ.

We don’t know the context for this Hitler statement, so it may or may not indicate that Clawson admires the leader of Nazi Germany. Perhaps he and another house guest were merely having a discussion about history, and how Hitler was able to rally support from ordinary Germans by applying oratorical skills that many historians agree were formidable. Or maybe not.

Two other “Big Brother” house guests have already lost jobs and job opportunities due to statements they made on the unedited version of the show.
