Big Brother Contestent not Told of Father's Death

Can Reality TV stoop lower? An experience from the Big Brother suggests that the answer to that question is, "YES!"

Contestant Emma Cornell, who was part of the Gold Coast Big Brother, was not notified of her father's death! The decision is being, "condemned as inhumane, unethical and psychologically damaging." However, it was apparently the wish of the family...

NineMSN commented, "ethicists say such a decision cannot be made for Emma, regardless of what her family or even her father wanted. The fact that Emma had been estranged until recently from her father, who was sick with cancer before his daughter entered the Gold Coast Big Brother house, only made her ignorance more damaging."
