Eleven of the housemates are single, two are gay and two are bisexual. Three of them were born outside the UK.

One had a "high-profile occupation", another was in the Parachute Regiment, while a third used to be a professional windsurfer and basketball player.

Producers have promised a tough time for the "unlucky" 13th contestant.

Filmed at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, this year's version of the Channel 4 show will last 11 weeks - one more than last year's programme.

Nor do I. It's basically utter crap but somehow strangely compelling.

Although we did get some of the US Big Brother here at one point on E4 and it was significantly less interesting. Mainly because the contestants seemed to be less freakish and they were allowed to talk strategy and gang up on people so the constant paranoia and backstabbing was absent.

Also - less booze and nudity.

A transcript of last years british show had me laughing though, some really, really thick girl and some guy trying to explain her something. We had a thread about it here.

That was probably Jade and Spencer from a few years ago?

Jade asks Spencer if he punts boats on the River Thames.
Spencer: "No, I work in Cambridge."
Jade: "I know I'm from Bermondsey and I know that's London, but where is Cambridge?"
Spencer: "It's in East Anglia."
Jade: "Where's East Angular [sic] though? I thought that was abroad."

# "The Union Jack is for all of us, but the St George is just for London, isn't it?"

# "I knew Lynne was from Aberdeen but I didn't realise Aberdeen was in Scotland."

# "What's asparagus? Do you grow it?"

# "I am intelligent, but I let myself down because I can't speak properly or spell."

# To Jonny when the others were complaining about him while he was lying in bed: "You'll interiate." (As opposed to "deteriorate".)

# To PJ after he revealed he knew someone who kept pet peacocks: "You see those things... don't think I'm being daft... but them things that look like eyes, are they their real eyes?"

Jade picks up a photo of PJ on holiday by the sea.
Jade: "Is that where you live?"
PJ: "Yeah, Birmingham seaside."
Jade: "Have they not got seasides in Birmingham?"

# "Jonny, I'm not being tictactical in here"

# Tim suggested Jade move to the US, to which she replied: "They do speak English there don't they?"

# "It's Mona Lisa who's symmetrical, innit?"

# When asked by Big Brother to name two vegetables in the garden: "Strawberries and spuds".

# "Rio de Janeiro, ain't that a person?"

# "They were trying to use me as an escape goat."

# "Do they speak Portuganese in Portugal? I thought Portugal was in Spain."

# On the final day, in the garden: "Are they really filming us out here? I look like a state."

This is the one I was talking about:


Big Brother 3 - Day 13, 12:50
If the housemates ever get a task based on their knowledge of geography, they would be advised to steer Jade well clear of answers.
_______________________

As Jade woke Spencer this morning, her remarkable lack of geographic nous came to the fore. She may have already consumed a few small alcoholic beverages to toast her 21st birthday, but the following transcript is somewhat tough to comprehend.

Starting by asking Spencer what he does for a living, this is bound to go down as a Jade chat that will live with her forever:

Spencer: "You know you see those people in Venice standing on the back of gondolas, pushing it around?"

Jade: "They don't do that on the Thames though, do they?"

Spencer: "No. I don't work on the Thames. I work in Cambridge."

Jade: "Is there not the Thames there?"

Spencer: "No!"

Jade: "Is there a river called the Cambridge river?"

Spencer: "Yeah, it's called the Cam."

Jade: "Really? You swear? I only thought there was the Thames. I thought that was the main one in London."

Spencer: "It is. I don't live in London."

Jade: "I'm confused. I thought Cambridge was in London. I knew Birmingham weren't in London."

Spencer: "Would you like to go and tell the group what you just said?"

Jade: "No..."

Spencer: "Cambridge is a city."

Jade: "But we've got a city in London."

Spencer: "Yes. This city is called London. And there's different parts of it. Cambridge is a city."

Jade: "Of where? Kent?"

Jade: "Well England's a country, London's a city, Bermondsey's just a throw-off. Now where are you? What's your country, and what's your things?"

Spencer: "What country am I from? England. The city is called Cambridge, the county Cambridgeshire."

Jade: "So not Kent then?"

Spencer: "Nooooo.... The region is called East Anglia."

Jade: "East Angular? That's abroad. Is there not a place called East Angular abroad?"

Spencer: "Jade, have you been taking the stupid pills again?"

Jade: "Every time people tell me they work in East Angular, I actually think they're talking about near Tunisia and places like that. Am I thick?"

Spencer: "Well, I hate to say it, but you are."

Jade: "Cos Scottish and Irish and all that comes under England, doesn't it?"

Spencer: "No... They come under Great Britain. Scotland and Wales have their own flags. Northern Ireland and Ireland are different."

Jade: "So they're not together? Where's Berlin?"

Spencer: "Germany..."

I wasn't basing my comment on any data I'd seen (as you may have noticed :D). It just seemed to me like this bizarre move of bringing in three new housemates was a way of creating some interest in a series that was failing. Perhaps that isn't what's going on - but it looks like it.

I dont like it at all this year, they're all bloody chavs with one posh nob.

Maxwell and Saskia were audibly kissing under the covers and from the next bed Kemal decided to complain.

"Is this ordeal ever going to end so we can get some bloody sleep? I'm sure you've secured your magazine deal," Kemal sniped.

"You're the biggest prick in the world," Maxwell shouted as Saskia backed him up by calling Kemal a "wanker".

Maxwell then leaned over and threw a glass of water over Kemal, shouting: "There's your fucking ordeal!"

Covered in water, Kemal replied quite brilliantly: "At least somebody got wet tonight...and it wasn't Saskia." Ouch!

I'm with that. She really showed her small-minded racist colours during that spat with Makosi over the ciders the other night. Makosi seems to be a real stirrer but she does it in such a way that I can't help finding it really funny. She's my new favourite I think.

Saskia will go, she is right about that, but not about why.

Reality tv is a crazy phrase.

I always think of it like that quantum physics thing where you can't observe something without fundamentally changing it. As soon as you put a camera on something any 'reality' goes out the window.

Big Brother has very little to do with reality.

one of the things that's interesting now is that with someone like orlaith, they have almost blurred the lines between BB and something like celebrity love island

when a BB contestant is sitting around talking about shagging calum best the show has completely changed the kind of entertainment it provides

sure, it's no secret that the contestants are no longer naive people in some kind of experiment, now they are all celebrity hungry wannabes (a process that was clearly fast-tracked after the unbearably tedious bb3 could never be allowed to happen again)

in the last couple of BB's there's been a rise of people who are almost famous as it were, and orlaith is the extreme of that

the question for the BB makers is, why bother with regular BB any more? at the moment it's just a kind of semi celebrity BB

the only real atrraction left of regular BB is that it still throws up people so stupid and shameless that they will provide unique entertainment a more savvy person would not

Funko
04-07-2005, 11:45:59
Yeah, I didn't mean it literally.

At least some people have been watching BB for the sex and now it's happened.

I missed that. To be honest before Celebrity Love Island I'd never heard of Calum Best so I'm not sure on what level he counts as a celebrity.

But yes, the show has changed and the contestants are more savvy. It's possibly on it's last legs. That said the producers have come up with some excellent stuff for the tasks this year. The task where they had to stay in boxes all day was brilliant. I was watching that live, who'd have thought talking boxes would be such hillarious TV.

novacane
04-07-2005, 12:20:36
From what I read, shagging Calum Best hardly puts you in an exclusive club.

I don't think this observation of housemates name-dropping other famous people is anything new. And its not so far-fetched as it seems for a non-famous person (especially a female) to have slept with a celebrity. Even this year, despite the more wacky characters we have in there, like Kemal, Makosi and Science, you also have people like Vanessa, Anthony, Maxwell, Saskia, Craig who are ten a penny. The mix of the more "normal" housemates with the more outlandish ones is the key to the success of the series, because that is where the conflict arises.

What we're seeing year on year (excluding the Cameron year) is BB producers honing the art of the reality TV show and simply moving with the times to maintain its success, not simply betraying the initial experiment. I would argue that the scope for psycho-analysis is as healthy as it has been since Series 1 where the novelty can never be repeated.

Funko
04-07-2005, 12:31:41
I loved the comment yesterday from Anthony about not having friends like Craig in the real world. And not having any female friends. He said "I think Maxwell deals with it better because he works in Top Shop"!!!

But it's so gripping!

Anyone notice how she said the pregnancy thing straight to camera? I wouldn't trust a word she says.

I also think Maxwell should go. Science is doing a great job of pissing everyone off. Besides, Maxwell is just a boring typical football fan and a bully.

As soon as she said that I started ranting at my TV last night, my first thought was that she's saying it to create interest and stay in.

After 2 days you can think "I've been stupid and ran the risk of getting pregnant" but without testing she's no way of knowing yet. So to tell people "I could be pregnant" sounds like attention seeking to me.

How can you know you're preggers after 2 days anyway, any test won't show up until after implantation which isn't till day 6 or so iirc. And she's a nurse which truly scares me.

I think Makosi is hilarious. She just makes up random shit to stir people up. Kemal and Vanessa are the fools for believing her.

As if she can be "nearly 100%" sure she's pregnant. Its all for effect. I think she's a great actress.

The fact is that REAL people are incredibly boring.

Funko
06-07-2005, 13:37:35
Yeah, that's true. Makosi is always shitstirring. I remember in that first week task thinking she's struggle but she was brilliant at it.

Tizzy

You gotta love Kemal.

In this week's nominations he voted for Makosi.
First reason "she's incredibly clever and manipulative"
Second reason "she's very stupid"

In the Netherlands, the BB production team have thought of something new for next season's series. They're looking for a woman who's six to seven months pregnant. This woman will actually give birth on the show :hmm:

The show's low ratings (~ one million viewers) is forcing the production team to look for new extremes...

The easiest thing would've been to just ditch the show, because, apparently, nobody gives a goddamn rat's ass.

To my shame and embarrassment, I've been looking in on this show for the last couple of weeks. Always avoided it before.

Mind you I think it has more to do with Makosi's bod than anything. Much of it is pure boredom.

What's those periods where the sound goes ? Is that to give the viewers some vital relief ?

Funko
02-08-2005, 13:38:52
It's when they are either swearing or talking libelously about famous people or about personal information of friends and family who haven't signed disclaimers, basically anything they might get complaints about or sued for.

Big Brother- like the worst, longest rail or bus journey ever, in the company of the most irritating obnoxious people with the least common sense and the minimum of manners.


Occasionally it might have the same fascination some people find in slowing down and looking at road accidents, or watching winos fight or take a dump in the street.

I'd rather self-catheterize with a roll of barbed wire than watch that shite.

When Big Brother came for the first time in Greece the TV station that accepted to host it was overun by piles and piles of garbage affectiously laid down their front door by various groups. Then it had great success because everyone was calling it trash and in that particular year's new year eve everybody was watching the show because they would announce the winner at midnight. i actually got an sms from my little cousin 5 minutes to midnight in which he proclaimed TSAKAS FOREVER! (a forerunner to win).

Interesting schism in the ranks there, with the 'Gang Of Three' voting to push out the 'Unfavoured Two'. The moral is... Get in with the small crowd and you're sunk. Even if you do vote against two of the first lot in return.

One of many reasons why I'd be no good at that sort of thing. Too often trying to convince the majority they've got it wrong again.

"Big Brother" is now brilliant. The first 5 series, and the first half of the latest one were all utter shit. However in the last three weeks it's stopped being linked with reality and is now entirely taking place in one of Bunuel's bad trips.

no I think its about right.

One of the funniest bits was craig being convinced that eugene is "out to destroy" him.

Eugene is so dull its hard to imagine him destroying anything.

Craig really needs to be removed before he ends up knifing someone in their sleep.

They make a right pair, both having a go at the other and then complaining. Still I guess a few weeks with that lot would drive anyone clean around the bend.

Yeah, but Anthony's comments are either jokes or frustrated lashing out because Craig's being a Psycho.

Funko
04-08-2005, 09:29:27
And Derek's buddy, Eugene, came in for some stick too. "He watches Anthony. He's weird," said Craig. "There's more reason for thinking he fancies Anthony than me. He sits and watches him. I watch... I see him doing it. He's so, so freaky."


:lol: :lol: :lol:

Gary
04-08-2005, 09:43:56
Ant does tend to repeat himself, he seems unwilling to accept that having complained of something once to Craig, he's made his point.

I mean he just keeps going on and on saying the same thing as if it gives emphasis.

He says it once and then has to rub it in by saying it again. and then again and again.

It's not like he stops when he's having a go at Craig. He needs to make the point once more.

And after he's said something he says it again about 15 to 30 seconds later.

It wouldn't be so bad but he seems to need to repeat himself.

Gary
04-08-2005, 09:45:07
Why would Eugene fancy Craig ?

Funko
04-08-2005, 09:47:38
Craig thinks Eugene fancies Anthony hence his jealous behaviour...



I think Anthony repeats himself because Craig responds to what he's said so irrationally. He can't understand the reaction and sometimes he has to repeat it to himself to work out what was wrong with what he said.
