most Big Brother casts remain in dark; Will says the “tragedy…ruined our show.”
Most casts of Big Brother around the world have not been told about Tuesday’s attack, save for the Netherlands and the U.S. cast–who were finally told, but will not be updated, according to the AP.

That’s okay with booted house guest Kent, who thinks the Big Brother 2 house guests should not have been told anything because “they are mentally fragile already.” Perhaps illustrating either his lack of understanding of the gravity of the situation or his actual lack of compassion, Will reportedly said, “this tragedy in NY has ruined our show.”

As people wonder how the show itself will handle the tragedy, it’s remaining episodes have been once again rescheduled: A two-hour episode will air tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET; the finale will air on Thursday at 8 p.m. Tomorrow’s episode will likely use footage from Saturday’s “live” show, during which (spoiler; highlight to read) Monica was evicted.
