Of course, once fans learned that Josh had been cut from the new season, everyone wanted to know why. Then, the rumors started circulating, claiming that Josh tested positive for COVID-19. From there, allegations and assumptions started filling up the feeds on various social media networks. Some were claiming that Josh wasn’t taking the global health crisis seriously.
Speaking to Us Weekly, the reality TV alum said that he tested negative several times and had approximately four or five negative results. He shared that it was embarrassing to be accused of not taking the global health crisis seriously. With that being said, he declined to talk about his health and would not confirm if he was cut from BB22 due to a positive test result. He explained that a person’s health and medical history is a private matter.
“You know, there’s been a lot of rumors about COVID and all this stuff. To be honest with you, I don’t feel like I need to address or say anything about that. That’s kind of a private matter. But it is unfortunate how it happened. I was a lock, I was supposed to be in and it sucks. It’s been really hard to be completely real with you.”
Pandemic Partying and Missing Masks
In June 2020, Josh and Kaycee Clark got some serious heat after they were seen partying in Miami during the pandemic. Both were not wearing masks and some wonder if that is the reason Josh was cut from Big Brother 22.
