BBfans for a more Diverse Big Brother started this petition to Les Moonves President CBS
Lack of diversity has always been a major issue on television. Whether it's scripted or reality shows, the presence of ethnic minorities and older individuals is often underwhelming. However, lately with shows like Empire, Fresh Off The Boat, Grace & Frankie, Jane the Virgin, and Blackish diversity on tv has slowly begun to improve. Unfortunately, Big Brother, a reality show that markets itself as a social experiment, continues to overlook their obvious lack of diversity amongst its cast. In its seventeen year existence, Big Brother has had two hundred and twelve house guests. Of those house guest only forty two have been ethnic minorities. Far less have been over the age of thirty five. There has been only one ethnic minority to win Big Brother. She's the exception to the rule. There are rarely ever more than three minorities cast each season. We are lucky to get one person over the age of thirty five in the cast each year, despite there being fourteen to sixteen casting spots available every season. Once in the house ethnic minorities and older cast members are usually the victims of groupthink. They are isolated and evicted early more often then not. As a fan it's disheartening to watch. I feel having a more ethnic minorities and cast members over the age of thirty five would do wonders to improve the show. Having a multitude of races, ages, and body types will only add to the show's appeal. I think we as fans can get CBS's casting team to consider this if we speak up and say we want a more diverse cast. If you feel the same please sign this petition. Thank you!
