Default Why do South Asian women always seem to be outsiders on Big Brother?

This is a genuine question and please don't start the whole "oh stop banging in about colour" stuff etc, it's a genuine question because we've seen it quite a few times on the show now and I don't understand why it seems to happen? I'm not saying race is a factor but I just find it interesting that there is a pattern of South Asian women being outsiders from the group.

We had:
Sunita in BB3, the first person to walk due to not feeling part of the group.
Shabnam in BB8 who seemed really desperate to try and get in everyone's good books but the majority of her housemates were easily annoyed by her
Nicky in BB8 who only really had a few friends in Charley, Tracey, Laura etc and was in most of the arguments that series
Maysoon in BB9 walked due to not feeling part of the experience
Beinazir in BB10 was pretty much ignored by both her housemates and production and the viewers, and didn't make any connections with anyone at all
Hira in BB10 seemed to get on well with most of her housemates but still people found issue with her for being too positive and happy (such a stupid reason)
Deana in BB13 is probably the best example of this in civillian BB terms. Only really had 2 or 3 people who actually acknowledged her.
Shilpa in CBB5 is clearly the most obvious case of being excluded from the group and being outcasted and bullied 100%

And now Saira in CBB18 seems to be disliked by nearly all her housemates

I just don't get it, and I can't really put it down to BB casting stereotypes either because the ones I've listed are all very different characters.

It's obvious racism Maybe not overtly but subconsciously by the white colonists like Bear.

She may have 'lied' in the argument but the bullying towards her started days before that. Most the racial comments made towards her happened before the oxo cube argument actually.

She was judging, and vocally, minutes into the show Why is it unacceptable for her to have the same done to her?


As for the list in the OP, Beinazir had a HARSH deal and I have always said that, I don't remember her being outcasted by the housemates though?

Hira, IIRC was very liked inside the house. It was a stupid move to try and save the horrific Lisa that lead to hiras eviction

Sunita I don't remember very much

Didn't watch BB8

Maysoon probably didn't feel part of the experience as she did **** all. Beautiful woman but boring as hell and most people have her in their top 5 most boring...which probably has something to do with her not feeling 'part of the experience'

Gave up on bb13 pretty early on

Shilpas treatment was ****ing disgusting and remains one of the few real cases of bullying we have seen on BB.

Shabnam was annoying in general; I enjoyed Nicky but she initiated most arguments; Maysoon and Beinazir were both quiet and chose not to speak out (nothing to do with them being excluded).

I don't think it's an issue of race, it's just coincidental. Shilpa is the only housemate whom we can safely say was isolated because of their race.

I think without racial comments being made it would be wrong to assume it's racism

I think Conor's hatred towards Deana was definitely racially motivated. He was just smart enough to hide it and not say anything racist/racially offensive like Jade and co did in CBB5.

Don't even go there. English isn't her first language so how was she meant to understand some cockney bird screaming 'did you order', it's naturally that she got confused with 'did you own' or whatever. Plus she didn't ask for Jade to scream at her and reinstigate the argument when Shilpa came back from the bedroom 'that was really stupid thing to say etc'. Plus she tried to call for help but she got laughed at by Jo and Danielle.

And in truth you do only need one oxo cube for rice anyway, no wonder Danielle felt ill and fat

The racist limericks for example, that only came out afterwards due to the Ofcom investigation.

It was racially motivated by his family, so wouldn't be shocked if it was from him too

Yep Calling her Poppadom & ****awala is clear racism too I fail to see how it isn't?

I agree with most of this

The point of the thread isn't "everyone is racist to Asian girls!!!", it's like you said, more of pointing out that coincidentally all the South Asian girls on the show have had a hard time with their experience and there isn't really an explanation why

I swear some housemates (it might not have been Conor) made fun of Deana's Indian culture but they just didn't air it

Yeah I feel this way too but obviously it can't be confirmed since he never said anything on the show.

Although iirc there were a few questionable comments that could've been deemed racial from some of the Insiders that series.
