Porshe puts Benefiber in the muscle milk>> Penalty Nom??
« on: August 14, 2011, 11:48:50 AM »
I think this is too important to ignore...
 
As reported by Ugot:
 
8/13/11 12:07 am BBT feeds1 & 2  porsche puts benifiber in the muscle milk..dani and kalia watch it go down.
 kalia asks why wouldnt you put it in the vanilla one instead of the chocolate one. porsche says its cuz they like the chocolate one better.

Benefiber is a FIBER, not a laxative. While it does promote regularity, in large doses it can also cause severe constipation and possible intestinal obstruction...or at least gas, bloating and discomfort.
 
It should be taken with large amounts of water...so if someone takes it unknowingly they will not take the recommended water with it, which could compund the effects.
 
I think this is a VERY serious issue. It was a deliberate attempt to cause the HG's distress, and could lead to a serious medical condition.
 
Is there not a rule against deliberately HARMING fellow contestants??

At the very least, IMO, this should mandate a Penalty Nom if not an immediate eviction.
This is not a laughable light-hearted prank, it is a serious situation. :ascared
 
Who do we write??

I am not sure where we should complain but it isn't acceptable that Porsche put something in a drink that could cause potential harm to an unsuspecting person. Daniele and Kalia are just as bad, they didn't say anything or object.

I was so livid about that yesterday for the very reason stated here -- it could cause someone serious side effects.  We're not all built the same -- I think BB needs to do more that tell that little scumbag not to do it anymore.  I hope someone finds out where to complain to.  I think you can lodge a complaint on CBS website

If you go to the CBS site at the bottom of the website is a Feedback category to click on.  ONce there--- you can click on the show -- and click to comment, or complain.  I complained big time. == That BB stepped over the line and its unacceptable to let Porch just go with a hand slap.  They should make her come clean to the rest of the house to start.

well porsche was spoken to by production.. since it happened twitter was a blaze with complaints to CBS  about it as im sure was their facebook page and their website.

we have no clue if she got a scolding or worse. as per porsche it was just a scolding but we all know she lies :lol:

zero, zilch, nada, nothing!

I was just coming with the same contact info.

I think what concerns me most of all, is that adding ANYTHING to someone's drink without their awareness is unacceptable in this day and age, particularly something that could have a harmful side effect. CBS and BB letting such an action stand without comment is condoning that behavior, in my opinion.

Additionally, I have emailed the makers of Benefiber with my concerns about the way their product was misused. This is probably NOT the image they wish their product to have.
 
There is also a phone #:
 
Novartis Consumer Health, Inc.
Attn: Consumer Affairs
Phone: 1-800-452-0051
 
But... please be nice if you call, they will probably be horrified to hear that their product was misused in such a way on a CBS show.

Thanks BBJ! I'm still going to complain. It wasn't right, and Kalia and Daniele watched her do it so in my mind they are accessories so I will mention them as well.  :jam:

Thanks Peach for the additional information. You're right, it puts their product in a very bad light, using it in a malicious way.

ugot...do you have the flashback for that info about BB speaking to Porsche?? I missed that, but still think too little too late.

She was potentially in real trouble. It's against the law to tamper with food and anyone who participates in doing so is at risk of going to prison as well as anyone who is a party to the act.

I agree with all of you....I don't find it funny what Porsche did and I think she
needs more punishment other than what appears to have been said to her.
She doesn't seem to understand the seriousness of it.  Just that she can't
have any fun    :'(

I wrote to CBS, also, and complained.

Thanks ugot!! I specially like the part where she says "you try to have a little fun and it just doesn't work out"  :groan:
