I've been a vegetarian for 25 years...unlike most of my kind I hate talking about it. I'm glad to see others talking about it though and showing a really good understanding of the issues surrounding meat consumption. Personal belief - one day (not soon!) I think people will look back on eating meat, or at least the factory farm industry, in a similar way that we look back on something like slavery...I'm not suggesting that they're equivalent, I just mean that we'll one day look back in shame in a similar way.

It's not likely that they'd go back and talk to random high school classmates.I had to go through something called a vulnerable sector check when I was hired at my work. It's a deep level background check done by the RCMP (our version of the FBI)....they spoke to my family, girlfriend, recent ex-girlfriend, a few close friends etc.

Don't they do psych evals on the houseguests prior to committing to having them as a part of the show?
