it's not even a matter of a vanilla cast

- it's about representation!!!! there are so many ways to create a diverse reality TV cast and many of the major shows, big brother especially, consistently come up short.
people want to watch and see themselves represented in at least one way, and by only casting a token flamboyant gay, a loud black woman, or other discriminatory archetypes, only perpetuates the stereotype that these people represent an entire group of people that some americans will literally never interact with, and limits the chances of people actually being represented - which is supposed to be one of the show's objectives, considering it's a """"social experiment"""" and all
BB can't even make a damn geographically diverse cast!!!!! america is a literal melting pot of dozens of cultures and different backgrounds and every damn summer we see a homophobic cowboy with a 4 letter name who graduated from Texas A&M, an instagram model who makes a racially insensitive comment week 2, a spiritual girl who gets voted out early for being annoying, etc.
their casting department fucking FLOPS and people absolutely have a right to be upset over it
that being said, who else is on #TeamIsabella with me this summer
