With less than a week to go until the premiere of Big Brother Canada Season 9, the show producers have already had to make a change to their cast after serious allegations were made online.
Shortly after the cast was announced, comments were made on the online video for contestant Ethan Quance, being accused of racism, assault, and also a video of him saying a homophobic slur online. The alleged actions by Ethan were all serious and eventually caught the attention of the show producers.
“Today, Global TV and Insight Productions were made aware of some significant concerns regarding an individual who has been announced as part of the Season 9 cast for Big Brother Canada,” the show said in a statement.
“We take this information seriously and acknowledge the impact these concerns raise for both the production and those involved. While much of what has been brought to our attention remains unproven, we cannot proceed with casting this person and this individual will be replaced ahead of the season premiere.”
While the show does not mention Ethan by name, he was the lone contestant in the cast with allegations against him.
Shortly after the statement was released, Global TV announced Kyle Moore on their website as Ethan’s replacement. Not much is known about him other than the fact he is a 26-year old hockey coach from Red Deer, Alberta.
Big Brother Canada premieres the 3rd of March on Global.
