That's absolutely terrible, that would never happen in the US Big Brother! They were told about 9/11 (although they didn`t really grasp the magnitude) and one of the contestant`s aunt died in 9/11 and they told her about that too. I think they`ve told people when family members have had babies too.

Hmm...the money(which she might not even get) or being there to say goodbye to your father as he was laid to rest?
Must have been a tricky decision for them. [Sarcasm]
Poor girl

As someone who was not told about her father's death until a few weeks later (we were estranged like the girl and her father here, too), I say sod the father`s "dying wish" and tell the poor girl. Reality TV can never take priority. It should be her choice to continue with it or bail out.

"As someone who spent 2 weeks homeless and even resorted to selling my furniture to pay for my fiance's medical bills and make sure she was ok and look after her, I find it fairly insulting when people are too "proud" to do some things for money, when those things are so pitifully minute.

Flipping burgers, eating a spider on fear factor, or appearing on big brother. If you ever need to do it, do it. If you`re too proud then believe me, you have nothing to be proud about. "

There`s a difference between WANTING lots of money and NEEDING the money. There is stuff I wouldn`t do just for a fortune because I know it won`t make me happy. And there are some things I wouldn`t do if I only wanted the money but might do if I needed the money. It`s not about being too proud for something for money, but about what you value more than money. There`s nothing wrong with NOT putting money on the top of your list.
