Such a moral dilemma

Tbdemma060407 All the way from Australian media comes the news that the country’s version of Big Brother is under fire because producers are refusing to tell a house guest her father has died.

Aussie model Emma Cornell has yet to hear her father, Raymond, died from cancer in May. The show’s rules don’t allow any news from the outside world to reach contestants, but figures reported in the New York Post say about 80 percent of the show’s viewers believe she needs to be told. Two audience members even briefly held up a sign that read “Emma, Your Dad is Dead” before being tossed out.

But hey, her family says she knew it could happen, and they want that prize money, so ignorance is bliss for now.
