Big Brother Racism: Season Twenty-One was the twenty-first season of the popular Big Brother Racism series, which concluded on December 7th, 2009. For the first time in sixteen seasons, a member of the hispanic clique, María Álvarez, ended up winning the series. Álvarez beat opponent Kayoka Shizukana by a 5-2 vote. Álvarez attracted a large amount of controversy during her appearance on the show when she dropped out of the first Head of Household challenge because she needed to defecate pellets of heroin from her body. She is also the first pregnant winner. What was perhaps most controversial about this particular season was the introduction of CornerOffice's spoilers. CornerOffice first spoiled the entire white clique before the season's premiere date had even been announced, and then went on to correctly spoil several boots throughout the season. Allison Grodner has denied that this poster at RealityBBQ works for CBS. In light of these spoilers and several suspicious activities during Head of Household challenges, Michael Bublé has filed a lawsuit against Grodner with the help of Season Nineteen alumnae Victorya Hong.
