“We have a fire!” he yelled.

“Are you serious?” houseguest Sam Bledsoe screamed from the other room, to which Robinson replied, “I am dead serious.”

According to fans watching the incident on the live feeds, Robinson was cooking a bacon and maple syrup concoction in the oven before the fire started.

“I guess Brett’s maple & chocolate bacon didn’t come out to good considering he started a fire in the oven, lol,” one person wrote. “Hence the feeds. #BB20.”

Another viewer tweeted, “Now we know bacon, sugar and maple syrup may cause oven fires thank you Brett. #bb20.”

“I don’t think any other cast in the history of big brother has caused this much destruction,” a third user posted. “they have managed to break the studio door, break the hoh sink, and now they’ve started a fire in the kitchen #BB20.”

A fourth person joked, “Well Brett wont be giving any cooking classes anytime soon. #BB20 #Fire.”
