If you did not hear the news yet, Big Brother 17 will have it’s first ever transgender contestant! Audrey Middleton was born Adam, and honestly it’s pretty damn hard to tell. Apparently CBS is trying to make some news of their own now that Caitlyn Jenner is a big thing, and you know what? Good for them, and good for Audrey.
Big Brother has long been pushing gay cast members, so it is good to see them breaking another barrier with Audrey. For selfish reasons, I wish they beat Caitlyn to the punch, only because I like Big Brother far more than the Kardashians, but any time the community can be represented properly, that’s a good thing. Based on the reaction to Jenner, I am sure Audrey will have her fair share of haters, but one won’t be here. Heck, she’s one of the hottest girls in the house, and it will be funny to see the reaction of people when they realize being transgender is not an awful thing.
