Scott Weintraub throws tantrum, gets kicked out of 'Big Brother 4' house by series producers
By Reality TV World staff, 07/13/2003
With the addition of "The X Factor," CBS clearly went in search of additional drama this season, and it appears it certainly didn't take them long to find it -- in spades.
NOTE: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS SIGNIFICANT INTERNET LIVE FEED SPOILERS THAT WILL NOT APPEAR ON THE PROGRAM UNTIL TUESDAY'S EPISODE BROADCAST -- AND IT'S STILL UNCLEAR HOW CBS WILL PORTRAY THESE EVENTS, THEREFORE DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW.
After throwing a temper tantrum in the house early in the day that caused some of the other houseguests to protest to the show producers that they feared for their personal safety, Scott Weintraub, the 33-year-old waiter from Chicago, was ejected from the "Big Brother 4" house on Saturday evening.
Jam! Showbiz reports that unhappy about being in the game with his ex-girlfriend, Scott exploded and threw chairs across the kitchen, sending his fellow Houseguests scurrying to separate parts of the house. The producers then called Scott to the Diary Room confessional room to speak to him, but he initially refused. "These people don't own me. Scott to the Diary Room? I am not going to the Diary Room," he responded. In talking with fellow houseguest David Lane, Weintraub said he felt like the producers were taking advantage of him (gee, you think?) Scott finally obeyed the producer's instructions and went into the Diary Room to speak to them while some of the female houseguests huddled in the bathroom and expressed fear over having Scott remain in the game.
Upon exiting the Diary Room, Scott held a meeting and apologized to everyone for his actions and also admitted that he has Human Papillomavirus Virus, otherwise known as genital warts. According to him, the situation has devastated his life. Several of the houseguests seemed more upset over his STD disclosure than with his previous outburst, as Michelle began sobbing inconsolably and Alison began vomiting and frantically cleaning the bathroom toilet, apparently aware that HPV can be transmitted through non-sexual contact.
After the meeting was over, Scott was then called into the Diary Room again and apparently sent home by the producers after they spoke to the other players about their safety concerns.
