What reality show was Andrew Tate in?
Andrew Tate was a housemate on Big Brother 17 (UK) in the summer of 2016. Before coming into the house, he was an established Mixed Martial Artist.
A huge strategist, Andrew came into the game with a great strategy. He was revealed to be an “Other Housemate”, who did not have housemate status and had to earn his housemate status. He was voted by the public to temporarily move into the main house as a part of a secret task, still as another housemate with another non-housemate, Ryan Ruckledge. Unfortunately, his gameplay backfired, as immediately upon entering the main house, he and Ryan both started to argue with the housemates about their two-faced actions. (Due to the fact they were secretly watching them before they entered).
He was controversially removed from the house after pornographic content of him whipping a woman was leaked. After he was removed, it was revealed that the woman involved, consented to what was in the video.
However, he was kicked out of the house after a week, when a video emerged of him appearing to show him striking a woman.
Tate was reportedly filmed calling his ex-girlfriend a “whore”, hitting her with a belt, and telling her to count her bruises. Tate claimed the acts on the video were consensual, and that he and the woman are still friends.
Tate later posted a video of a woman claiming to be his ex who confirmed this was the case.
Although Andrew himself, and many other fans believe that is an incorrect reason as to why he was ejected. Andrew believes he was removed as a result after unaired altercations with other housemates; Chelsea Singh, Marco Pierre White Jr, and Jackson Blyton, got very heated and due to Andrew’s fighting background, Big Brother feared violent repercussions this and ejected him from the house.
