Viewers complain Bear’s tantrum in the Celebrity Big Brother award ceremony was significantly edited down
It was award night in the Celebrity Big Brother house, which meant cheers, tears and tantrums.
The six finalists voted for who they thought deserved each award, with each having to explain their reasoning.
It was a pretty obvious selection of winners, but all hell broke loose when Frankie Grande was awarded most entertaining.
The news did not go down with Stephen Bear, who clearly thought he deserved that title.
In the episode, viewers saw Bear grab the winner’s sash, walk off and refuse to give it back.

While the show showed a very small section of Bear’s tantrum, viewers who had watched the live show complained that he had a much longer, more childish tantrum about losing which saw Big Brother frequently intervene to ask him to stop interrupting.
Producers cut out Bear being a sore loser after the majority of HMs voted Frankie as Most Entertaining #CBB #CBBUK pic.twitter.com/liNgiaiXAe

Why didn't the producers show Bear kicking off last night because he didn't win the "most entertaining housemate"? #CBB

So they cut out where Bear really kicked off last night about not being voted most entertaining ð #cbb https://t.co/d4OPxIo5ds

Channel 5 declined to comment on why Bear’s full tantrum was not aired in the episode, but viewers clearly thought it was part of a fix to hide his worst behaviour.
It was a shame, because the rest of the ceremony had been going so well.
The first award went to Bear for biggest joker, which seemed fair with his love for wind-ups and pranks.
But then most memorable went to Marnie Simpson, which didn’t sit well with viewers.

Marnie definitely isn't the most memorable ð But yeah Ricky is the most sincere, shame he's so boring ð´ #CBB x

Most sincere went to Ricky Norwood, who was left in tears by Frankie Grande’s kind comments.
Aw I love that they voted Ricky the most sincere housemate and he got emotional. So sweet #CBB

Ricky getting emotional winning 'most sincere' is the cutest. ð #CBB

Most deserving winner was awarded to Frankie after it came down to a dead heat between him and Bear and was left to Marnie to pick the winner. He also picked up biggest drama queen.
Aubrey O’Day was crowned most attractive and most intelligent, which viewers were quick to defend.
@AnEmoshWreck She's HIGHLY intelligent. Has a degree in political science, is very involved in politics, campaigns for gay rights. etc. #CBB

Bear took best dressed, to his evident happiness, and Renee was left crying with gratitude as she was handed most loyal.
“Loyalty is so important. Iâll take loyalty over everything!â she said, overcome with emotion.
Although sadly viewers thought she was two-faced.
Okay Renee needs to stop. You may have just been voted most loyal. But you're a still a liar. #CBB
— Katerie Wright (@KaterieWright) August 25, 2016
Renee goes on about loyalty but is the biggest liar in there. Not loyal to her word #CBB

Renee just got 'most loyal' award but then goes to bear and claims she never called him cancer but we saw that she did to Aubrey?YE ok #CBB
