Big Brother 7

Recommended Posts

So apparently I know one of the contestants, a mate of my girlfriends. She'd be 20 years old now and from Loughborough and her names Bonnie.

Don't know if she's in the final lot or just some test run or something. Just thought I'd show off. She'll probably be quite boring anyway. She's a bit devious but fairly insecure as well. And she's uuugly.

I was directing that episode for Men and Motors (mentioned in the News Of the World articule) when we followed Lea Walker do her first Porn Shot.

If she is in i think she will do really well. she looks like a washed up, has been porn star - but she is incredably genuine and good humored.

she lost over 15 stone and sold her house to fund 80 grand's worth of surgery.

Christ, that space prank they pulled was hilarious.. because a whole program revolved around it.. but "ooh, look, a transexual and they don't know!!!" which was along the same lines as this twin shit is just, well, shit.

If they want interesting social interaction, entertainment and lots of conniving cunts they need old people.. old grumpy people.. and another Ahmed (who I still think wandered onto the set one day by accident whilst shopping at the local sainsburys).

Yeah Ahmed was great but they'll probably put in another Eugene beacuse all the people that watch are insecure geeks. Eugene was so cringeworthy he cried like a kid at school if something bad happened do you remember when he had to shadow makosi? Cringeworthy ain't the word!

First episode tonight according to Channel 4 website.

The question is- do we really want another one? Love it or loathe it, BB is draining for the entire population. If you're really keen to find out all the latest news from the show, you've got to sell your social life for the whole summer. Every night watching people argue and moan and bitch about each other. Every shred of dead air time is taken up with the show's numerous spin offs. For the BB faithful, it's a demanding task that ultimately reaps little tangible benefits (other than being able to proclaim "I was there")

Equally draining is trying to avoid the damn thing. Papers, magazines, work colleagues and the like all seem to really want to talk about the 'zany' characters in the show. Favourites are picked, prophecies made and villains are cast. A 3 month long amateur dramatic production entitled 'life in a house with no telly' invades our airwaves while media hacks pretend that it’s actually interesting and insightful.

I can't decide if there is a real public demand for this yearly phenomenon, or does channel 4 pretend that there is and get everyone else to believe their pretence too? Is Big Brother going to remain a permanent fixture on our TV landscape? Have we replaced Victorian carnival freak shows with a sterile TV version that offers the same experience?

I'm not going to watch it, and I'd rather not be forced to hear things constantly about it. However, supply and demand... if people want to watch this sort of stuff, then I guess it has justification for being shown.

I'm quite thankful for the fact I don't really like it that much, as the combination of this and the World Cup has the potential to ruin my GCSEs.

Yep. I'd actually say it's more like Bedlam than a freak show, but the theory still stands.

I can't tear myself away from it once it starts.

No, I mean I know who some of the characters are because I'm working a shift at a paper and have just seen the story for tomorrow (I'm assuming it's new information)

Hold on, let me try this:

There's a cross-dresser with tourettes, a woman with the largest breast implants in Britain, a bloke who calls himself 'a wacky Paki poof without a corner shop', a female kick boxer , and a woman whose claim to fame is stripping in a pub after drinking 25 pints.

Sounds like people that have been mentioned previosuly. Shite if so - "lets see if we can get the biggest twats in Britain on there. Ker-azy!"

I'd much rather a couple of hot women, a nerd and a chicken.

I did find the experience of watching previous Big Brothers very exhausting. Apart from the first series, which was unprecedented on British TV. The members of the house were unaware of how many people were watching. This made it palatable because there wasn't the feeling of a beauty pageant about the programme. Try as they might, Endamol haven't been able to capture lightning twice, with each attempt to make the format 'fresh' seem more desperate than the last.(Rich house/Poor house anyone?) What exhausts me about the whole thing is that we're watching people who have a deluded sense of self importance trying to 'win' viewer acceptance. All the truly interesting and original characters are voted off early leaving a bland collection of sycophants to moan about how bored they are and how they can't wait to leave. I can't help but agree with them…

So what is the program tonight about then? Are they going into the house?

Sorry if this has already been answered I haven't read the whole thread.

After the first one, I think I'll just stick to BBBM and not watch the actual program. Russel Brand is well funny and that.

Yep. Davina will giggle and be totally excited all over again as a bunch of transexuals, deviants, misfits and complete cunts trapse into the house one by one in an attempt to mark their territory and try and become the super-minor celebs that those before them have succeeded in doing. Who knows? Maybe one of them will write an autobiography! Or perhaps someone else will have sex with a beer bottle.

Also probably the announcement of Kit Kat's Golden Ticket nonsense. Hooray!

I like Big Brother, but there's just too much of it - an hour a night, and that's if something hasn't happened to make them extend it. I haven't got the time. I preferred it in the old days when you got about 3.5 hours total a week, they should provide some summarised episodes for those of us interested but time-poor.

You sound a bit of an enthusiast. I reckon your biography would end with "He loved Big Brother". :unsure:
