The new version of Australia’s Big Brother, called Big Brother Uncut, has conservatives in that country outraged at the extent of the on-camera nudity and sexual activity between the contestants.
MP Trish Draper: “What we basically have is pornography and full frontal nudity on television at a time when children are watching. These people have an aspiration to be porn stars.”
Both the Australian and British versions of the show go further with on-camera nudity than the American version which is heavily censored. Not even the 24/7 video feeds shown to U.S. internet subscribers reveal extended shots featuring full-frontal footage of contestants showering.
