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]

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.

BTW I don't care if it was the FATHER'S dying wish because it's the DAUGHTER who has to deal with it when she gets out.

If they did that to me I'd be pissed. I'd want to be told right away so I can make my own decision on what I'd want to do, and I know that I'd choose to go to the funeral than stay on the show.

I really feel sorry for this girl, obviously the dad just wanted her to carry on with her life rather than his death to hold her back. Which was very sweet of him but i dont think he realised how different this is from normal circumstances... her grief is going to be broadcast worldwide on tv! When you grieve all you want to do is be left alone, not to have picures of your face the exact moment you found out splashed over newspapers for everyone elses pleasure. The longer she doesn't know the worse it's going to be.... when a family member dies whether you were close or not, you wouldn't want to be the last person in the whole world to know would you? She's gonna be gutted that we're all here gossiping about her dad's death and we dont even know her dad! Yet us stranger's all know before her. It's disgusting

Well, if it was the man's dying wish...

Can't you just picture how horrible it will be for her when she leaves the house, though? The crowds outside will probably have signs saying "Your Dad is Dead!"....and her reaction will be televised! Poor girl....

You make it seemed that it was the show that neglected to tell the contestant of the death, when it was the fathers dying wish. Your as bad as the liberal media.

Unfortunately I agree with Bathazar. They were estranged until recently. She chose to go into the house of her own free will KNOWING her father was terminally ill. The father chose for her not to know. You can't tell me that father and daughter had not discussed the possibility of his death while she was away. If they didn't they honestly didn't think this whole thing through.

I. hate. reality shows.

I'm not a watcher of Big Brother, but isn't there some thing this year where the winning contestant doesn't get ANY prize money? so her staying in the house is kinda pointless, because theres nothing to be gained by staying there anyway?

And also think of it this way... one hand, stupid, crap, attention-seeking-wanna-become-instant-celebrity tv show, or on the other, knowing about my fathers death, and seeing his funeral

"the Big Brother experience"? what a crock of poo. all it is, is dumb people talking over each other and bitching about each other. what riveting television. yawn

ppl dont go on reality tv shows because they are poor ffs, its because they want to be 'famous'. I would rather clean toilets than compromise my dignity and morals on Big Brother or any similar show thats currently rotting our culture.

That makes wafuu mad from just reading it. Hope she sues them or something because they're just going to make ratings off her emotional state. Wafuu could argue that they did this on purpose just to use her for ratings.

Somehow I doubt the father really said not to tell her. The producers are monsters.

Having a private service weeks after someone is dead and buried, is not the same as being there and seeing them and having closeure. My mom died of a heartattack and i had not seen her in 2 years. I never got to see her before she was creamated, so there is no closeure even visiting her grave. She should have been told and it would be her decision to leave the house or keep playing. Im sure he was thinking about her, but winning or not she will have to deal with the reality when she leaves the house.
