Openly gay Big Brother UK houseguest Aaron Frew (pictured) has been ousted from the show for “inappropriate behavior” and making unwanted sexual advances towards one of his straight housemates.
It all started when the 24-year-old and his fellow housemate, Joel, engaged in a a drunken game of “truth-or-dare” and Aaron, who was wrapped in a towel, offered Joel an impromptu peep show.
“Stop it, please,” Joel replied. “I don’t want to see your bottom.”
Instead, Aaron ripped off his towel, exposing himself, then chased Joel, attempting to mount him.
“This is insane!” Joel cried. “You need to control your behavior!”
That’s when producers stepped in. They told Aaron to cool off in the Diary Room, where he downplayed the incident as “banter” and apologized, saying: “I really apologize for what I did. … I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to offend him or you guys.”
But Joel remained traumatized. When it was his turn to hit the Diary Room, he told producers he felt “terribly awkward” and that his “personal space was violated.”
The next day, Aaron was asked by producers to leave the show. Before departing, he once again apologized for the incident.
“I’m so sorry,” he said through tears. “That’s all I can say. … I’m really so upset.”
While there’s no denying Aaron may have gone too far, writer World of Wonder poses an interesting question: If he weren’t gay, and the exchange had happened between two straight housemates who were just horsing around, would it have still resulted in one of them being fired?over at
