Real Reason Rodrigo Kicked Out Of 'Celebrity Big Brother' Too ‘Shocking’ For TV
| Last updated
Yesterday it was revealed Rodrigo Alves, aka the 'Human Ken Doll', was kicked out of the Celebrity Big Brother house a mere nine days into his stay.
Just hours after housemate Natalie Nunn was voted out, Alves left the house, telling the Sun Online that he couldn't cope without his phone. However, CBB bosses revealed to the publication that he had in fact been kicked out.
The whole thing seemed out of the blue to viewers, with audiences left shocked by the fact that Rodrigo's sudden exit wasn't shown in full when the episode aired on Channel 5.
In a new twist to the tale, a mysterious yet apparently well-informed sect reported to be 'insiders' have now told the Sun Online that the network couldn't air the episode in full because his behaviour was too controversial for TV.
A 'source' (and doesn't it always seem reliable when sources are cited but not named) reportedly explained: "Rodrigo was a loose cannon in the house and the reason he was kicked out was absolutely shocking.
"Bosses agreed not to air the scenes because of the outrageous nature of his actions.
"They told him he was on a final warning when he used racist language and this was the final straw. They had to boot him out quickly."
For those of you who haven't been following this edition of CBB, Rodrigo used the N-word twice while in the house, garnering over 1,000 complaints to Ofcom with angry viewers calling for the celebrity figure to be kicked out of the house.
Although it's reported Rodrigo has been booted out of the house, in his first post-eviction interview he insisted it was his own decision to leave.
He told the Sun Online: "The experience in the house was amazing but enough for me.
"I was not coping very well to be without my mobile phone and not being in contact with my family and friends.
"After Natalie left I felt very upset because she was the life and soul in the house and got very much misunderstood.
"All I wanted out of the show was to have fun and to show to the UK that I'm a nice and fun person."
Prior to his stint in the CBB house, Rodrigo made his name undergoing a series of extreme surgical procedures to transform himself into the 'Human Ken Doll'.
The 35-year-old is said to have gone through over 150 surgeries and spent an eye-watering £500,000 ($642,000) to achieve this look, even having six ribs removed and so many nose jobs that he's left with breathing problems.
Riding the coattails of his tabloid fame from these procedures, he made it into the CBB house along with a number of other colourful characters including Roxanne Pallett, Gabby Allen, Kirstie Alley and Ryan Thomas.
However, nine days in and he's already been given the boot, with show bosses writing in a statement: "After a further incident, Rodrigo has been removed from the Big Brother house and will not be returning."
