Celebrity Big Brother viewers 'disgusted' by Chad Johnson's 'disrespectful' comments about female housemates

Celebrity Big Brother might have only returned to our screens two days ago but it has already sparked controversy, with viewers being left “disgusted” by contestant Chad Johnson’s comments about his female housemates.

Last night the American star boasted to Big Brother about how all of the women in the house were “open” to him, admitting that he was interested in all of his female housemates “apart from the old lady” – possibly referring to 62-year-old Helen Lederer.

He also revealed that he doesn’t bother speaking to women who he doesn’t find attractive.

Speaking in the Diary Room, Chad, who found fame on The Bachelorette, said: “On the outside looking in, I kind of saw their head shots, the people who I thought would be here.

“Then you get here and you talk to them and it’s like I don’t know which one to shoot for.

“They’re all hot enough for me to date now and I’m liking each one of them in separate ways.

“Normally I just choose a girl based on this girl fits who I think is hot, and I don’t get to know the other ones. But each of these girls is different in their own right and I’m down to date each of them.

“According to everything that’s happened so far I feel like every girl I’ve spoken to is pretty open to it. I haven’t overtly hit on anybody, I’m just getting to know people, so I’m interested in basically every girl here.”

Viewers were left further outraged when Chad insisted that the other men in the house were no competition, continuing: “Maybe they like the other dudes but all I know is right now if you asked who has a better chance of getting a girl on a date it’s me over everybody.

“I’m not being cocky, I’m just saying.”

Responding to his comments on Twitter, fans of the show seethed:

Do we already have this year’s Celebrity Big Brother villain? It certainly looks like it.
