I have been watching, with dismay, the atrocious behavior of Big Brother 15’s Amanda Zuckerman and I am appalled that CBS Big Brother executives have allowed her bullying behavior to continue throughout the entire season. It is bad enough that all of the minority cast members had their games severely hindered by the racist beliefs of the likes of Zuckerman, Gries and Zimmerman, but now the outright bullying of a Big Brother contestant, Elissa Slater (who has no one to back or support her), has been allowed to persist throughout the last couple of days.  This includes Zuckerman’s declaration that she would murder Slater in her sleep. Today the bullying and harassment by Zuckerman has continued and,  instead of putting her in check, feeds were censored in order to shield her repugnant behavior. I find this to be unacceptable.

During a time where bullying has seen tremendous backlash from society at large, it is shameful that CBS has not done anything to put their foot down and set an example for the viewing public, as a whole.

I have been a fan of Big Brother since the early years and have questioned why I have continued to watch this bastardized version of a game that is normally one of the highlights of my summer. If season 16 sees its ratings severely drop, it will be due to season 15’s overall lack of integrity and moral virtue and CBS’s lack of effort to remedy the situation.

This is my plea to CBS to do something about this horrendous behavior. I get that the idea is to show people as they truly are, but there must be a line drawn in the sand at some point. There has to be a point at which one crosses that line. What cast members Candice Stewart and Elissa Slater, in particular, faced this season on Big Brother can only be described as bullying and emotional abuse. Please do not continue to be a party to such behavior.

Thank you.

  1. I agree 200%. Amanda is out of control and should lose her POV it should go to the next person that came in 2nd. With all the bullying in schools and shootings over bullying you should take a stand. This cast is so vile whoever chose them needs to be fired.

  2. Love this. I just gave feedback on the CBS website an I encourage everyone to do the same. It is so embarrassing for CBS to even allow this. I hope Amanda loses her job as well. Shameful.

  3. Excellent letter and I totally agree with you.

  4. Amanda is a Bully and should be expelled from the game!

  5. Upset with CBS! said:

    Well said! I think the majority of viewers agree with you whether they voice opinions or not. This has gone too far with death threats against Elissa!!!! CBS must remove Amanda NOW!!!!!!!!!!

  6. I posted this on my Facebook page, Young Adult Authors Against Bullying
    Megan Kelley Hall
    I fully agree with this and was thinking the same exact thing as I watched the extreme bullying behavior of Amanda Zuckerman. While Gina Marie and Aaryn Gries have lost their employment due to racist remarks made on the show, Amanda has made even more vile, racist, homophobic, and bullying remarks thoughout her time on Big Brother. Bullying cannot be tolerated and I encourage her real estate company to remove her from their employ as soon as the show ends. Let’s set an example that bullying, no matter what form it takes, should not and will not be tolerated.

  7. I agree but would like to add that this season of cast members are slobs. BB should have rules that include having to keep the house clean daily. No eating in bed! It is disgusting to watch and I can only imagine the insects in that house. By far the worst season of cast members. Production really needs to step in.
