Scott’s Temper Tantrum Causes Early Exit from Big Brotherby David Bloomberg -- 07/13/2003

It seems that if we are to have a true sense of déjà vu, Justin should be the one throwing a temper tantrum and scaring the other houseguests (because of the HouseGuest with the same name who did that two years ago). That, however, didn’t happen. Instead it was Scott, ex-boyfriend of Amanda, who blew up and sent other HouseGuests into hiding. And producers apparently didn’t wait very long to show him the door.
Details are somewhat sketchy, in part because some of the live feeds went to FOTH (Front Of The House) as some of this unfolded. But here is what we at RealityNewsOnline have been able to piece together right now. At about 9:40 pm last night, several HouseGuests heard loud noises inside the house. Scott was inside throwing chairs around in a temper tantrum. Viewers of the 24/7 live feeds reported that he and Amanda were talking just before it occurred, with him telling her that he had heard stories and getting increasingly agitated. Recall that Scott has been saying – on the show itself – how he really wants to get back together with Amanda. But it never appeared that Amanda was interested in the same outcome. Somehow, he became increasingly agitated and it turned into a full-blown tantrum. After he threw the chairs, Scott was immediately called to the Diary Room, but initially refused to go (the picture above came from that timeframe).
After Scott finally obeyed the producers, Amanda explained to some of the other HouseGuests that while he is a great guy, he is also spoiled and “doesn’t handle situations in a mature way.” She went on to say that he blamed everyone else for his own problems and wants things handed to him.
A number of the women insisted that after this incident, they no longer felt safe. Dana was among the most outspoken on this point (and I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that she wants him gone anyway and has made that clear to others in her alliance).
After meeting with producers, Scott came out and apologized to everybody, explaining that he has genital warts and this has put a lot of stress on him. He says that they have not actually appeared in a year but seeing Amanda brought him back to that time and reinforced how she has been able to go on with her life but he has isolated himself because of the condition. (It appears that Amanda may have revealed this information about his condition to the other HouseGuests just before he did, causing Alison to throw up and then disinfect the toilet bowl.)
This did not exactly make all the HouseGuests feel comfortable. A number of them questioned his sincerity and still felt he should leave. This was only made worse when he lashed out at Jun during his apology because she apparently asked him a question about what would have happened if a chair had hit somebody.
Sometime after all of this happened, it now appears that Scott is gone. Various live feed boards are reporting that it is unclear if he left of his own volition or was tossed. However, at the group meeting, he said he wanted to stay. Whether this changed or he was simply ejected from the house is unclear at this time.
Before the series started and before the “X-Factor” twist was fully revealed, the producers of Big Brother 4 indicated that they had a twist in store and even said, somewhat gleefully, that they wouldn’t be surprised if somebody walked out the very first day. Well, it took a little longer than they thought, but it appears their thinking was right on the money. The X-Factor was too much for Scott to handle, and they should just be thankful that he threw the chairs around the room instead of at somebody.
