'Big Brother' viewers make death threats over Jeff Schroeder's eviction


By Reality TV World staff, 08/29/2011 

Some Big Brother viewers are clearly having difficulty separating reality TV from real-life.

Shelly Moore's family has been receiving death threats from demented fans upset she voted to evict returning eleventh-season houseguest Jeff Schroeder during last Thursday's Big Brother broadcast, TMZ reported Sunday.

According to the website, Moore's family has received "multiple phone calls from people threatening violence" as well as threats directed toward Josie, Moore's 8-year-old daughter who appeared in a recent Big Brother segment about Moore's family.

In addition, Moore's employer has also reportedly received harassing phone calls demanding the Big Brother houseguest be fired from the company.

Given the severity of the threats, Moore's family is planning to get the FBI involved, according to TMZ.

Big Brother executive producer Allison Grodner condemned the viewers' behavior and pleaded for them to come to their senses on Twitter on Saturday.

"No matter how much you dislike [a houseguest], this is wrong! True [Big Brother] fans do not try to ruin lives. Please stop!" she wrote.

Schroeder -- a fan favorite who was competing alongside Jordan Lloyd, the eleventh-season Big Brother winner he began dating after their 2009 season -- was evicted from Big Brother during Thursday night's special live double-eviction broadcast of the CBS reality competition's thirteenth season.

The broadcast began with returning eighth-season houseguest Danielle Donato -- who had been nominated for eviction by Schroeder, the competition's reigning Head of Household at the time -- being evicted from the Big Brother house.

However, Kalia Booker -- whom Schroeder had nominated for eviction alongside Donato, her ally -- won the subsequent Head of Household competition and quickly exacted her revenge by nominating Schroeder and for eviction alongside returning twelfth-season houseguest Rachel Reilly, Schroeder's ally.

Porsche Briggs, Booker's ally, then won the Power of Veto competition, resulting in Moore -- a former Schroeder ally who'd had a massive falling out shortly before the live broadcast began -- voting for Schroeder's eviction and forcing a 2-2 tie vote which allowed Booker to cast a tiebreaking vote that eliminated him from the competition.
