Was Jace Caught Masturbating On ‘Big Brother 17’? This Could Be Good News For Him

Here's a statement I never thought I'd type out: There is a long history of houseguests masturbating on Big Brother . Like, it's not just Jace who's been caught possibly masturbating on Big Brother — there have been a few contestants in the past who have gotten down with some self lovin' despite the fact cameras are on them literally all the time. Hey, I get it — being in the public eye 24/7 on a reality show is a stressful situation, you gotta do what you gotta do.

For instance: During Big Brother Season 16, we saw Zach whacking his troubles away in the shower (at least he cared about cleanliness in the house!), in Season 12, runner-up Lane, also got a cathartic release in the shower than was not just singing at the top of his lungs. And more recently, Season 15's second runner-up Spencer Clawson got at it under the covers. You could say it's a bit of a trend.

Weird, though, isn't the fact that these guys were caught masturbating — that's perfectly normal and healthy. The weird part is the fact that, after they were caught masturbating, these guys all managed to actually get pretty far in the competition. Could it be a strange omen of success, or something?

I mean, it seems weird to think there could be an actual correlation between the two things. Perhaps these guys did well because they had an outlet for stress relief, and when it came to the competition, weren't afraid to take matters into their own hands (get it?). If you beat off, you're the one to beat! (That's the last pun, I SWEAR).

That said, when you consider the fact that we might have crowned our first masturbator of the season with Jace (also, is that John sleeping next to him?!), it does sort of make you wonder if he's going to be the one to root for in the near future:

Here is what Twitter has to say about this development:

At least everyone is having fun!
