JC Mounduix has been making waves ever since he got in the Big Brother household, and not in a good way. The contestant has found himself in hot water a few times throughout the season, in various events that involved what could be interpreted as sexual misconduct. The latest incident, which involved Mounduix touching and kissing houseguest Tyler Crispen while he slept, concerned many watching the series Ar at least enough so that CBS issued an official response addressing the situation and Mounduix's other inappropriate behavior in the house:
The expression of viewer concerns regarding JC Mounduix's behavior was reviewed immediately. All video was examined in its entirety. We spoke with all three of the houseguests separately in detail about the incidents. Tyler and Haleigh explained to producers that they in no way felt threatened, unsafe or sexually harassed. If there was any indication from our Houseguests of sexual misconduct, we and CBS would have taken immediate action. The safety and security of our houseguests is and will continue to be our top priority.
CBS said that neither Tyler Crispen nor Haleigh Broucher felt uncomfortable or threatened by JC Mounduix's behavior in the Big Brother house. The cameras appeared to tell a different story in Broucher's case, when her bathroom time was interrupted by Mounduix. Mounduix refused to give Broucher privacy despite her wanting, and the cameras "went to fish," while she yelled for the show's production staff to intervene and get Mounduix away. Tyler Crispen also expressed some discomfort on the program following the incident and said he would not be sharing a bed with Mounduix in the future.
Big Brother had troubles with JC Mounduix earlier this season, as the cast member was involved in another CBS statement after attempting and successfully touching the genitals of other houseguests with an ice cream scooper. Viewers called for Mounduix to be removed from the show then, and some still are following the latest controversy. The statement (via EW) doesn't look like the network has any plans to remove Mounduix from the competition at this time, although it was made clear that if any houseguest felt sexually threatened or unsafe there would've been repercussions. One might imagine there still might be, as JC's increasing unpopularity on the program will almost certainly hurt his chances of surviving the competition down the stretch.
Big Brother season is in full swing, and those interested can catch the program on CBS Sundays and Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET, and Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET.
