I've started a new thread to let you know of housemates who want to re-write history and pretent that they never entered the Big Brother house.

Occationally the website receives emails from housemates requesting I remove all traces of them from the website, I thought I would share these emails with you.

Some requests are for surnames to be removed (which I usually agree to), some are for photos to be removed (which I don't usually agree to) others want every detail about them removing (which I usually ignore).

As the thread goes on you may notice a pattern with the countries of the housemates.

As always, comments are appreciated.

At least in the U.S., you sign a contract saying your identity will be known to the public, thus potential Reality TV Contestants are fully aware of what they're getting into, so there can't be any legal aspect.

The best these people can do is not to let the show matter to them.

There was a message on the WOBB Facebook page as well. IDK if administration took care of that.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I was in the year 2005, a resident in the German Big Brother house.

I find the pictures of me on the website no longer acceptable.
Please take these pictures from the website www.worldofbigbrother.com.

You can use other pictures (with clothes) but even without the BB logo.
Please take the change before Nov.30.th.

Warm greetings from Hamburg

Parsifal



Dear Sir or Mdam

As far as I know from Spain...

-> Mónica Ruiz from GH1, she had the same problem as Mª José from the same season with her past as a prostitute, but that just destroyed her.
-> Mercedes García from GH6, she just walked in the launch because her ex-boyfriend and her ex-boyfriend ex-girlfriend were housemates too. Curiosusly she later competed in the A3's version of Survivor where she was put in the Anonymous tribe, although Sabrina from GH2 competed with a celebrity status. Recently they put all the launch and finales of GH in the official website, but I think Mercedes did not let production to put the launch and finale from GH6.
-> Maite Franco from GH9, she did not know she would enter as a housemate, as she was put as a twist with her unknown sister Rebeca. She did not liked it and walked from the house in Day 3. She didn't wanted to go to the set as all other evicted housemates do.
-> Lis Valenzuela from GH11, she also walked because the other housemates kind of bullied her. She just went to the set a couple of times more, but she later did not return. She tried to wrote a book about the lies and how horrible is Gran Hermano, but she did not continued it.

I don't count either Julio and Flor from GH 12 because the production decided to make in the moment they were ejected as they did not even existed in the house. They were trying to make the same thing with Eva and Danny from GH14 though.

I think the pics can stay for more than 20 years, and in France, Jean-Eduard from the first season of BB France went to the court, and now nobody can broadcast a pic of him on TV or on internet without "flouting" his face.

But it's not ok to put the emails here, it's private. Or at least to change their real names by XXYYY ::)

---
So, in my opinion, if you don't want to remove the pics, don't do it, because if the court didn't decided, you are not forced to remove it, but if they would ask me, I would remove it because I can understand them.

Lol. Poor Mercedes :'(
But does she know that WoBB isn't a SPANISH WEBSITE and that not the whole spain will click first in the worldofbigbrother.com when they'll search something about her or GH in Google.es --'

And who is Mercedes ? Everybody forgot her.

Edit - Or maybe when she asks for a job, the employer searchs and when he finds her he decides to don't take her... If it's for that, I think it's understandable :'(

She is just a big Reality-TV loser when the things did not go with her way, she later tried luck in Survivor but she walked too lol. She must be really bitter.

I say just respect their wishes and delete all information. You can always put on the page "This housemate wishes not to have their information placed on the site".

I won't say Reality TV ruins lives, because most of the public doesn't care about the housemates, especially those who leave early, and people forget housemates after even two months go by.

For instance, casual survivor fans who don't read internet gossip likely forgot Brenda ever played Survivor: Nicaragua because it was over two years ago.

Poor Brenda, if they aren't going to remember her playing in Nicaragua, she must be into oblivion with Caramoan Islands.

The following are fictitious, but hopefully make my point -

Dear CNN website,

I notice that you have printed stories and pictures about me murdering my girlfriend and these stories are damaging my athletics career. Please remove all references to this on your website.

Regards,
Oscar P, South Africa



Dear Internet Movie Database,

I notice that you have listed me as starring in the movie BMX Bandits. Although I did act in this movie, it was early in my career and I do not want to be reminded of this and therefore I want you to remove all references to me being in this film.

Regards,
Nicole Kidman



Dear CBS news,

Your website has come up when I did a google search and I would like you to remove all references to me losing the presidential election against George W Bush. This is a highly embarrassing time of my life and to think that anyone can read on your website that I lost a vote to that buffoon. Could you please either remove all mentions of me, or preferably change the article to say that I won.

Yours always,
Mr J Kerry, Massachusetts




ALL people who entered a big brother house, did so knowing that there actions would be documented on TV, newspaper and internet. They agreed to this very public act and in my opinion cannot now ask everyone to pretend that it never happened.

What do others think? Should I remove all traces of these housemates from the website, even though broadcasters and Endemol still have mentions of them on their own websites? How far do I go - do I refer to them as "anonymous housemate number 1" in the nominations tables and change articles to read "anonymous housemate number 1 was evicted with 54% of the vote"?

Do I also go through and edit / delete all posts that refer to them in this forum and blogs?

I don't know what problem has her, we are in 2013, nowadays the only remembered housemate from GH6 is Beatriz (and Natacha in Argentina), she had a lot of controversy that time, but now, 99% don't know who is she and would not lose their time searching for a housemate who was 2 hours in the house.

PD: How did she saw her page in WoBB? You put Mercedes Garcia in Google and the GH is nowhere to be found. Maybe she loser her time putting Mercedes Garcia Gran Hermano 6 in Google images instead of searching for a job.

I do remove last names when asked (Parsival, Gina & Gabriel from BB Germany have all asked and I have removed). I also remove pictures that could be considered embarrasing - like bikini, swimming trunks ones. There shouldn't be any nude pictures anywhere on the website, so that shouldn't be an issue.
