Although CBS did not release the specifics on why Marvin was removed from the cast, online sleuths are speculating that it is due to his appearance on other shows.
Marvin is also a contestant on the hit competition show America’s Got Talent.
During week two of AGT, Marvin performed on the show and received three votes in his favor from the judges.

It is also being speculated that the reason Marvin had to exit Big Brother was due to being under a “talent hold” with AGT, Distractify reports.
A “talent hold” means that Marvin is possibly under a hold with AGT and he cannot perform on other shows at this time.
Marvin nor CBS did not confirm the details on why he had to exit Big Brother.
Others online speculate that NBC heard of Marvin’s potential appearance on Big Brother and wanted him to stay on with AGT.
