Big Brother Racism: Season One (initially simply called Big Brother Racism) was the first season of the popular Big Brother Racism series, which concluded on July 26th, 2009. The season, being the staple for the entire series, attracted immediate controversy over its themes of racial segregation, which Allison Grodner denied was at all similar to segregation pre-Civil Rights, instead insisting it was a form of "factious warfare between people with similar backgrounds". This statement was criticised mostly due to Freida Pinto's presence in the Asian clique, because her Indian ancestry is far different from the intended East Asian ancestry. The season premiered to very high ratings due to the controversy (although some areas of the country and some countries such as South Africa refused to air it) and maintained the ratings throughout its entirety, eventually being renewed for a second season. The first season was won by Isaiah Washington.
