On Friday night, there were two medical emergencies that resulted in two players being rushed to the hospital on Big Brother 9. Even though the medical problems occurred at around the same time, they were completely unrelated.
Amanda told another houseguest that she was hypoglycemic and needed sugar. Before Amanda was able to get anything to eat, she passed out and fell on the floor. The live feeds that have been posted on YouTube captured Amanda lying facing down on the floor, and several other houseguests rushing to her aid. When Amanda was turned over, she could be heard gasping for air.
When the feeds came back up, houseguests were discussing not only Amanda being rushed out of the house for medical treatment but Allison as well. Allison had a severe allergic reaction to something, possibly to eating a peanut. She reportedly broke out in hives and her tongue was swollen.
Both houseguests have now returned to the house and appear to be ok. Big Brother 9 airs on CBS on Tuesdays from 9 PM to 10 PM ET/PT, on Wednesdays from 8 PM to 9 PM live ET/delayed PT, and on Sundays from 8 PM to 9 PM ET/PT.
