Are The Producers Helping Steve Out?

Fans Wonder If The Big Brother 11 Producers Are Protecting Steve Gill

Hmm... one minute Steve is acting in a somewhat creepy manner, being criticised by fans for being a bit of a perve and for getting rather too close to the female housemates than is advisable for a married man. The next minute, he's saying: "I feel like a d*ck," seemingly aware that his actions haven't been appropriate.

Yesterday, there was a forum thread on a certain entertainment website, which talked about Steve's chances of winning and also contained a link to our article about Steve's recent behaviour.

In that thread, Big Brother big cheese Phil Edgar Jones actually passed comment, and would doubtless have seen the article in question. So it seems highly suspicious that within a matter of hours, Steve had seemingly been warned-off, and fans have been wondering if Big Bro said something to him last night.

Let's make it clear, we're not accusing Channel 4, Endemol or PEJ (as the fans call him) of doing anything specifically. Indeed, we know that Rachel definitely did say something to him, so suggesting anything else would be pure speculation.

But you have to wonder if Channel 4 are back-pedalling and helping Steve out now, fearful that their show – Big Brother 11 – could be turning a 'war hero' into a letch, therefore ruining his reputation and bringing a backlash against them.

Food for thought, but regardless of his flirty behaviour, we'll be amazed if Steve wins this show because no amount of positive editing can make him a nicer bloke or a more interesting BB character.

Not that there's anything wrong with him... which is the standard moral disclaimer because you seemingly aren't allowed to criticise the disabled/ war heroes, even if they bring little to the show and just laze around dishing-out orders and criticising their peers.

Fans suggested weeks ago that the producers probably want Steve to win, but in our recent Poll asking if he deserves to make it to the Final Three housemates, 65% of voters didn't think he should go that far in the game, and considered the 41-year-old a bit too boring and only on the show because of his injuries.

35% of voters thought of Steve as a decent bloke, however their opinion of him might have changed since, especially if they've been watching the live feed over the past few days.
