Big Brother might need to take a break from spying on the housemates and instead keep an eye on the Channel Seven editors, because a number of embarrassing editing fails have made it into the 2022 season’s final cut.
The beloved show may be the OG of Australian reality TV, but times have changed and the switch from a live(ish) to pre-recorded format means that producers really have no excuse for the multiple muck ups that have managed to slip through the cracks.
Tully Smyth (and Aleisha Campbell) Whinge About Whinging
Tully Smyth was put on blast by her Big Brother Australia housemates on June 20, after she was unanimously voted the “biggest whinger” in the house. But in a huge frankenbiting fail, BB‘s editors appeared to use an audio clip from an entirely different day – and perhaps a different person.
After the task, Tully was walking around the courtyard area looking sullen, with audio from the diary room.
“It’s not fun, it’s not fun at all,” Tully told Big Brother in the diary room.
But the next audio clip of sounded starkly different and the tone actually sounded more like newbie Aleisha Campbell than it did Tully’s distinctive voice.
“Guess I’m gonna watch my whinging,” the voice said.
The audio then returned to Tully in the diary room, where she continued: “Being called out…”
But alas, the frankenbiting hadn’t finished, with the audio continuing with Tully saying “…as a whinger,…” but it sounded like a different clip yet again before finishing with the original audio, where Tully concluded, “…really sucks”.
Tully Smyth’s Very Smooth Face
We’re all guilty of using a filter at some point, so it’s no surprise when an influencer/reality star touches up their own photographs.
However, when you’re on TV and there are hundreds of the same photos being shared around the WWW, getting away with it is a lot more difficult.
This was the case for Tully Smyth, who was caught using a smoothing filter on an official pic from Channel 7.
The original was dull and a few blemishes could be seen on the 34-year-old’s face — the one she shared? Smoother than a baby’s bottom! LOL!
Josh’s Robotic Sentences
It is not uncommon for reality TV producers to cut and paste their stars’ words. Often, executives will claim that this is done “for clarity,” but we all know that it’s really just a manipulative editing tactic.
Reality TV queen Abbie Chatfield took to social media to voice her irritation with what is commonly referred to as “franken-biting,” after she noticed a wild editing fail during the second episode of Big Brother.
Evidently, his sentence, “I want her back,” appears to have been created in the editing suite by pasting in words that he has said in a different context. Yikes!
Big Brother Has a Voice Crack
It’s Big Brother‘s 21st birthday and we guess he was a late bloomer because fans noticed the “robot” have a major voice crack during the 2022 season’s premiere episode.
In a major editing fail, Big Brother‘s voice changed for a split second.
Fans were quick to point out the wild slip up on Twitter.

Johnson’s Disappearing Jacket
Johnson Ashak may be a poker player, but surely he isn’t quick-witted and cunning enough to take his jacket off in less than 0.5 seconds, right?
Well, either the newbie is really good with his hands or the show’s post-production team has had a major slip up.
In the premiere episode, Big Brother Australia fans noticed an blink-and-you’ll-miss-it editing fail, when Johnson was wearing a jacket, moved two metres to the left, and *poof* the jacket was gone.
His jacket was no where to be seen, despite only “several seconds” having lapsed.
