Ken Receives Warning For Threatening Behaviour
Newcomer Ken Tong has received an official warning for his
arguably threatening behaviour aimed at Bea.
It all started when Bea refused to get involved in the secret
mission, which is both admirable because she's fond of
Freddie, but also annoying because it doesn't show team spirit.
Mind you, ultimately Big Brother is not a team game.
Arguably, Bea started the bad-feeling by refusing to give
Tom advice on completing the task, then snapping at Ken: "I
really wouldn't start having a problem with me Kenny".
But, somewhat sinisterly, Ken mumbled something about having
been close to some of the most dangerous men in the world,
effectively saying that he can't be intimidated by Bea.
Later, out in the garden, Charlie told Bea that Kenny had
suggested she was trying to intimidate him, but when Bea challenged
her Chinese peer he got angry and challenged her back, prompting
the recruitment consultant to say, "Go away". The
pair bickered for a while and Ken showed slightly aggressive
tendencies during their spat.
Talking to Charlie, Lisa and Rodrigo afterwards, Ken said
about Bea: "If we were outside, the problem would have
been sorted (Ken clicked his fingers and said 'Done'). People
just don't mess with me, it's just not done. (I have) too
many people on my side". Ken then told Charlie that he
doesn't do things himself, but wouldn't be drawn on precisely
what his comment/ threat meant.
Charlie later told the rest of the group about Kenny's comments
– that he'd said he would get someone to deal with it
for him on the outside – and a concerned Bea went straight
to the Diary Room. The pacifist was told by Big Brother that
the housemates' welfare is of utmost importance, and reassured
that threatening behaviour will not be tolerated.
After Tom pointed-out to Ken that he had overstepped the
mark, the 24-year-old backpeddled and apologised to Bea, suggesting
that his comments had been misconstrued and claiming that
he was feeling bad about it. Bea told him in response: "I
really would just like to leave it, and I do feel threatened
When talking to Charlie and Lisa about the situation in the
garden, Ken suggested that what he meant by his 'problem sorted'
comment was that in the real world, Bea would have been removed
from his presence by his security team (apparently he has
bodyguards). In other words, he didn't mean to threaten or
suggest any violence towards Bea.
As a consequence of his actions, Ken was told by Big Brother:
"Kenneth, if you cannot agree to live by the rules, Big
Brother will take further action". It was made clear
that his language could easily have intimidated his peers,
and Ken was given an official warning for his unacceptable
