Krista sues CBS over knife incident.
Big Brother 2 house guest Krista Stegall has sued CBS seeking damages because, as her lawyer says, CBS “placed all of the house guests, including Krista, in danger” by failing to thoroughly check Justin’s background, according to The Daily Advertiser.

Justin Sebik was expelled from the house when, early on July 11, 2001, in between kissing her, held a knife to Krista’s throat and asked, “Would you get mad if I killed you?” Later, it was discovered that he had an arrest record.

Following her eviction, Krista (who had also lied about her background), said in an interview with the New York Daily News, “I didn’t think of Justin as threatening at all. I honestly don’t even remember him holding a knife to my neck. Maybe I had my eyes closed when he did it. But if he did that, I’m sure he never intended to harm me.” Krista’s suit seeks “lawsuit seeks damages for negligence on the part of CBS and the producers, pain and suffering, mental anguish, medical bills, mental impairment and loss of enjoyment of life,” the paper reports.
