Big Brother Brazil assault scandal

Big Brother Brazil assault scandal

A contestant on Big Brother Brazil was expelled from the show for possibly sexually assaulting a fellow houseguest while she was unconscious.

The accused, Daniel Echaniz is calling the incident a “huge misunderstanding,” but producers made the ruling based on what the called inadequate behavior.

The Daily Mail (UK) said “Night cameras fimed Echaniz, a male model, get into the bed where [Monique] Amin was sleeping before appearing to have sex with her under the covers.”

The show’s host Pedro Bial said that Echaniz  “Big Brother examined his behaviour without jumping to conclusions and with the utmost care. The images showed a breach of the rules of the program. After careful evaluation, the direction of the program found that the behavior of the contestant on the night of the party was seriously inadequate.”

Footage of the alleged incident was broadcast live on pay-per-view TV and was even on YouTube for a short time.

Police are looking into the matter, according to The Associated Press.

    Brazil: Police probe allegations of rape on TV

    RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Brazilian police are investigating allegations of Sexual Assault on the country’s Big Brother reality TV show.
    Rio de Janeiro police spokeswoman Camila Donato says participants
    Were to be questioned as part of the probe on Tuesday.
    That’s a day after the wildly popular program announced that contestant Daniel Echaniz was being thrown out over suspicions of “Gravely
    Inadequate” behavior.

    The 31-year-old male model was booted off the show after allegations emerged that he engaged in sexual behavior with contestant
    Monique Amin after she’d passed out.

    The alleged incident took place following a party Saturday.

    Program footage shows the two in a bed, the leopard print sheets
    moving as Amin lays inert.

    Dailymail has some pictures taken from the feeds that shows the alleged behavior occurring. Now the real kicker is this reported by dailymail.

    HIGHS AND LOWS OF ENDEMOL…
    Endemol is a production and distribution company based in the Netherlands, founded from a merger of companies belonging to Joop van den Ende and John de Mol.

    The company has subsidiaries in 23 countries, including the United Kingdom.

    While Big Brother is a significant part of the company, its most profitable programme
    is Deal Or No Deal, which has now been sold to more than 100 countries.

    Endemol specialises in inexpensive ‘reality’ programming, which is more appealing to TV executives than scripted series involving actors and production values.

    Endemol UK has been criticised for incidents of sexism and racism in its Big Brother shows, most notably the 2007 Celebrity Big Brother series featuring the late Jade Goody and Shilpa Shetty.

    It was reported in 2010 that Endemol was £1.95 billion in debt. As of 2011, the debt had
    grown to £2.67 billion.

    Even if it is convicted of rape, a former BBB Daniel can not be arrested

    With the alleged rape case within the “Big Brother Brazil 12″ still under investigation by, Daniel has his future uncertain. The public prosecutor has requested the seizure of the passport of the model in order to prevent it
    from traveling for work abroad. However, despite all the precautions that Daniel did not flee, prosecutor
    Christiane Monnerat of Justice says that even though rape is proven vulnerable, Daniel can not get arrested.

    “There are many alternative measures to prison. The penalty is high, but he has a good record.
    There are many other issues involved. Depends on whether a complaint will happen if he would cooperate
    if there is even a conviction,” said the prosecutor. “The judge will evaluate whether or not to accept this report.
    Being accepted, will begin a criminal action, which will end in a sentence,” he said.

    Despite the complicated situation in which the former BBB is involved, lawyers for Daniel say he hopes to continue participating in the program.

    Big Brother Spoilers Brazilian player investigated for Raping passed out houseguest
    **updated
    Posted: 17 Jan 2012 10:27 AM PST
    I’ve always said Big Brother Brazil was more like a softcore pron than a traditional Big Brother Show.
    Now it looks like someone may have taken it way too far. Reports are saying that 31 year old male model (Daniel Echaniz) engaged in sexual behavior with a fellow passed out houseguests (Monique Amin).

    Pretty shocking, Daniel Echaniz says he was “too Drunk” and doesn’t remember the incident. The victim found out about it happening after production informed her in the diary room. This is why they don’t give too much alcohol to Big Brother USA houseguests.

    Rape in the BBB: Ibope drops of Globe and advertisers fear even greater loss

    01/17/2012 11:32, By Writing – the Rio de Janeiro

    If rape in the house of Big Brother Brazil 12 and there would be a marketing ploy, the shot missed. Neither the hearing has improved and the sponsors of the reality show are concerned about the damage to their brands, following the announcement of a possible crime, under the duvet. Ibope poll released on Tuesday morning, after the wall this weekend, reveals that the BBB 12 hit with the worst price to viewers, with 20 points, on average, while the previous version, already in decline, yielded 22 points. In São Paulo, each point equals 58,000 households connected to the program.

    In the case of TV Globo , the incorrect story is also about to generate a hole millionaire. Agencies representing advertisers AmBev ( Guarana Antarctica ), Fiat, Niely, Schincariol ( Devassa ) and Unilever ( Omo ), each with a quota of $ 20.6 million for sponsorship this season, the atmosphere is funereal. Anyone confirm or deny even the cancellation of contracts, but a senior advertising, speaking on condition of anonymity Mail Brazil , sees more trouble ahead.

    - If rape is actually confirmed and it turn into a criminal case, will be very difficult to keep it on the air with the support of existing sponsors. The wear for these brands would be incalculable – he said.

    The $ 103 million raised Pelaliah TV Globo , in this case, would cost much more to industries that have begun to calculate the impact of negative news about the brands of their products.

    - Companies should be concerned to know what really happened and assess how this may impact on the brands involved – said Professor Julio Moreira told reporters. He is a professor of branding (brands) of the post-graduate degree in Communication at ESPM. Research in progress

    Daniel would have taken advantage of the time when the bed buddy was knocked out to have sex with her
    under the duvet

    In addition to dismiss summarily, actor Daniel – who raped a fellow show Monique – the TV Globo put the squadron of lawyers in readiness maximum, in case the police chief Antonio Ricardo, the 32 Precinct, go ahead with the investigation opened yesterday, soon after released images of the couple under the blanket. The case took an even higher figure as the Minister of the Secretariat of Policies for Women, Iriny Lopes, sent a letter to the State Public Ministry of Rio de Janeiro calling for “action” against an alleged rape program.

    Housemate on Brazilian version of Big Brother was ‘raped on live TV’
    after alcohol-fuelled party

    By Matt Roper Last updated at 3:14 PM on 18th January 2012

    A housemate on Brazil’s version of Big Brother has been raped live on
    TV, it has been alleged.

    Police today confirmed they had begun an investigation and carried
    out a search of the studios in Rio de Janeiro, where the popular reality
    show is being filmed.

    Viewers were shocked in the early hours of Sunday to watch contestant
    Daniel Echaniz 31, apparently force himself on 23-year-old student
    Monique Amin, who had passed out drunk after a boozy party.

    Police are believed to have then told TV channel Globo to either stop broadcasting the show, which is produced by Endemol and only began last Tuesday, or eliminate Echaniz.

    The decision to remove the contestant, who if found guilty of rape faces between six and ten years’ jail, was explained in a statement read out by the show’s presenter Pedro Bial.

    He said: ‘Since Sunday morning, the board had been evaluating the behaviour of Daniel, who is suspected of having infringed the rules of the programme.

    ‘Big Brother examined his behaviour without jumping to conclusions and
    with the utmost care. The images showed a breach of the rules of the programme.

    ‘After careful evaluation, the direction of the programme found that the behavior of the contestant on the night of the party was seriously
    inadequate.’

    Makers Endemol – which is known for encouraging outrageous behaviour among its contestants – today refused to comment on the latest scandal
    to rock the worldwide Big Brother format.

    Big Brother Brasil, which is in its 12th series, is watched by an average
    TV audience of eight million. In last year’s final over 154 million votes
    were cast.

    I’ve always said Big Brother Brazil was more like a softcore pron than a
    traditional Big Brother Show. Now it looks like one houseguest may have taken it way too far.
    Reports are saying that 31 year old male model (Daniel Echaniz) engaged
    in sexual behavior with a fellow passed out houseguests (23 year old
    student Monique Amin).

    Pretty shocking, Daniel Echaniz says he was “too Drunk” and doesn’t remember the incident happening.

    The victim found out about it happening after production informed her
    in the diary room.
    This is why they don’t give too much alcohol to Big Brother USA
    houseguests.

    Police are now investigating the incident. Daniel has been removed
    from the show and if found guilty faces 8-10 years in a Brazilian prison.

    Big Brother Brazil is MASSIVELY popular last year it raked in 156million
    votes and is considered one of Brazil’s most popular TV show.

    Endemol has declined to comment on the incident.
