Subscribe To Why The Big Brother House Had To Be Evacuated Updates
Some wild stuff has occurred in both the US and UK versions of Big Brother over the years, but we can't remember a situation that was quite as weird as what happened on the UK version of Big Brother this past week. Reports indicate that the cast had to be evacuated out of the house after the roof caved in, causing water to gush everywhere. And we aren't just talking a trickle. A full stream of water poured into the main living space on Thursday. Check it out:
As the water poured all over the floor and all over the bodies of the slew of contestants on the UK version of Big Brother, a female voice from the back-end of the series came over the loudspeaker noting:
For a while, it seemed the cast would hang out in the bedrooms while the issue was rectified. However, ultimately they weren't stuck in the bedrooms longterm. There was a twist for the latest series, which meant that a second, "other" house had been built for a secret set of contestants to live in. While everyone had joined the main house by the time the flood occurred, the other house was still available and Big Brother ultimately opted to keep the cast in that house while the regular Borehamwood Bungalow was being cleaned.
So, what caused the major flooding? Per Huffington Post, the network is saying that torrential rainfall was the culprit. If you have been a Big Brother UK fan for a while, you may know that this isn't the first time the house has flooded. Last time a flood occurred was in 2010 in the house, which was also a memorable moment on the series.
For the most part, the cast didn't seem too concerned about the flood. Most of them were frolicking around in the water, although you could hear a few curses when the water initially came running down.
Big Brother UK airs on Fridays on Channel 5. And if you want to catch the good old US version of the competition series, new episodes air on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET, and then again on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET, only on CBS.
