big brother 16 nicole victoria collapses 'Big Brother 16': Victoria Rafaeli collapses in the bathroomThe “Big Brother 16” house seems to have had a medical emergency of some kind Saturday (Aug. 23) afternoon, when Nicole Franzel found Victoria Rafaeli collapsed and sweaty on the bathroom floor.

The incident starts at around 11:14 a.m. PT on the live feeds. Nicole had been in the bathroom area when Victoria came in and went into the toilet stall. Nicole must have heard something, because suddenly she looks toward the door and then starts asking Victoria if she’s OK. When she opens the door, Victoria is lying on the bathroom stall floor and Nicole remarks how sweaty she is, so Nicole yells for Derrick to come help and he runs in from the dining room area, then the feeds cut out.

The feeds came back about 12:10 p.m. PT, but so far, no one has said anything on the live feeds about Victoria. Perhaps they were instructed not to talk to about it.

Victoria has recently been complaining about pain with her wisdom teeth, so it’s possible it got so bad that she couldn’t take it anymore and collapsed. It does not appear she lost consciousness, however.

There is a precedent for “Big Brother” contestants temporarily leaving the house for medical reasons, but no one has ever left permanently. We don’t yet have any more details on Victoria’s status, but we’ll keep you updated when we hear anything, or you can sign up for the live feeds to monitor the situation for yourself.
