View Full Version : Celebrity Big Brother

I usually can't be bothered with all the Big Brother fuss and cretins it produces, but the 'Celebrity' version which has just begun on Channel 4 has thrown up another odd mix with a twist. 10 celebs (who i'm sure you'll all have heard of) plus a non-celeb who is in there pretending to be one. They are:

Michael Barrymore
Tracy Bingham (extremely fit)
Maggot (Goldie Lookin Chain)
George Galloway
Pete Burns (where do I start?)
Dennis Rodman
Rula Lenska
Faria Alam (enjoys the taste of swede)
Jodi Marsh
Preston (Ordinary Boys frontman)

+ Chantelle from Essex (who thinks she looks like Paris Hilton)

Funko

Tracy Bingham was in Baywatch (I presume after everyone stopped watching it). From their respective reactions when Rodman walked in I reckon they've shagged.

It is a quality set of housemates.

When they rolled out George Galloway I was pretty stunned.

Maggot to win. :beer:

Gary

Must have heard of Rula Lenska !?! She was really something in her day.

Caught a few minutes of it on digital TV last night. Who's the tattooed 'lady' ? She looked drugged out of it.

Pete Burns. He was frontman with Dead or Alive who did You Spin Me Round (like a record)...

Ah cheers, that explains it. In which case I assume it's a tranny / shock value thing, rather than a transgender thing, as he would have had enough cash to be more convincing otherwise.

May also explain the drugged look too, I guess. :)

Rodgers

Aparently he had to sell his house and cash in all his savings for reconstructive surgery when a lip-job went wrong

Rodgers

When they rolled out George Galloway I was pretty stunned.




I think he might be addicted to winning elections. I wonder if he does win whether he'll do the Ian Paisley "Moster Blaaaiiiirr!!!" speach opening that he did on Election night.

Nice idea though - how many times have we heard the boring statistic that more people voted for Big Brother than did in the General Election?

Funko
06-01-2006, 11:52:51
More votes were cast, I don't think more individuals voted.

Rodgers

Ah well, you know the "stat" I mean though. So bored of hearing it.

Pete Burns is extremely heterosexual. He's been married over 20 years.

He's also extremely funny and unbelievably bitchy, so will probably be good fun to watch. As well as being in Dead Or Alive, he was a prime mover in the Liverpool punk scene, linking him to loads of bands from Echo and the Bunnymen to Frankie goes to Hollywood.

It's like that here in the states. Hell American Idol Finals can get more votes in like an hour than a presidental election. It's pretty damn sad if you think about it. Then again, it's probably a better thing that these mouth-breathing retards aren't voting in elections.

I remember watching NBA when it was on Channel 4 years ago. Rodman was never anything less than creepy back then.

King_Ghidra

he certainly was different

but then being a flamoboyant, cross-dressing, gay-club-attending, madonna-fucking nba star does place you in something of a minority

8 nominations out of a possible 10 for Jodie Marsh - she couldnt have fucked this up more if she'd tried

Funko
11-01-2006, 09:02:37
Yeah. She's starting to remind me of an old nightmare housemate of mine. Any minor criticism leads to a massive emotional outburst. The most minor thing becomes a huge issue and she absolutely will not listen to anyone with a different point of view to her own.

Funny thing is, if she listened to people like Pete Burns and Barrymore she might actually be able to turn the public perception around but all she's doing is making it much worse. Which is what they are trying to tell her if she'd only listen.

Funko
11-01-2006, 09:03:24
I can't imagine Pete Burns going but I can see people wanting to get George out and keep Jodie in for entertainment. That said she's totally just annoying me so I think she'll be out and booed.

Rodgers
11-01-2006, 09:05:30
They made a good point last night when Barrymore and Burns were talking to her - she chose to sit facing right into the camera despite it looking a pretty uncomfortable position. And then the tears came. I think that sums up her time in there really.

Funko
11-01-2006, 09:06:32
I wasn't so sure about that. I know lots of people who like to sit on the worksurface, including Tizzy.

Rodgers
11-01-2006, 09:07:16
But the bit about her dad being ill sounded like shite.

Gary
11-01-2006, 09:16:49
Watched a little of it last night. Thought Barrymore was rude, unwilling to listen but wants to insist another does in the most untactful manner.

I don't know enough about Jodie to comment on how genuine she is, or is not, but I think Barrymore needs either to lay off the drugs/alcohol, or if he had a clear head, read "How to win friends and influence people".

One can hold a different opinion to another without ordering them around like that. Bit like the pot calling the kettle, black.

Funko
11-01-2006, 09:17:03
I'd heard that he was ill before but it is bullshit, if he's seriously ill you don't cry about it in the house. You cancel and don't go in the house.

Don't you?

Gary
11-01-2006, 09:18:29
Not necessarily.

Would it have helped him if she had ?

Aparently the live feed showed Burns and Barrymore being much much more patient with her and eventually snapping - which is the bit they showed on the highlights. I bet they edited it to try and get some sympathy going for her - as big a twat as she is being, the producers must think that her antics are a ratings draw.

They divided it up into the various group's of society. The general householding public owns about 10%.

Somewhat amazingly, the largest single group is still the aristocracy and royal family, with over 33%. The programme was a left-wing republican's wet dream because it revealed what a bunch of lying sponging shits the house of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha are.

Even though there's editing the reasons etc given by each contestant for their nominations are like maybe 30 seconds per nomination. What else are they talking about in there that it takes 18 mins per person?

33% of what? The actual wealth (as a % of GDP or whatever) of the country or the land and buildings etc?

:D

They cut it down loads. I used to watch the nominations uncut show on E4 in the normal series and it's amazing how cleverly they do it. But yes, they cut loads even on some that seem very quick.

I think Barrymore was in there for ages though.

Rodgers
11-01-2006, 09:55:57
So do they just ramble or are they trying to justify the nomination a lot more?

The land area. They didn't count the fact that the Royal family own the seabed up to 12 miles off-shore.

Aha! Well in that case it's a rubbish stat to say they own 33% of Britain. Who'd ever want to own the great swathes of Scotland they must have? I bet most of their land is only worth about the same as one company in the FTSE100.

A bit of both, sometimes BB asks them to elaborate so they can pick the best comments. You'll notice they intersperse the nominations with shots of the celebrity being nominated chatting in the living room to cover cuts.

Some of them are just quick though.

Rodgers
11-01-2006, 10:06:17
Aha. I see

Debaser
11-01-2006, 10:07:44
They don't just ask them who they'd like to nominate, they ask why they've picked who they have, and also probably ask further questions if their initial answers are quite blunt or just short. They also ask them some generic "how do feel about nominating" type questions. Could easily take a while, especially the first time, and especially with budget celebs who probably crave as much screen time as possible.

You might be surprised. The Duchy of Cornwall is all land in the south, after all.

Prince Charles was able to build his model village on greenbelt land in the Duchy, and it sold for many millions. He was not allowed to profit from it, but all proceeds were able to be ploughed back into "the business"- which, of course, exists solely to provide an income to Prince Charles. He also received exemption from corporation tax and capital gains tax on it due to his royal status.

They're taking the piss.

True, but then how much has Simon Cowell made out of the X-Factor etc? He's made millions too. It doesnt mean that he controls Britain. Some of the blokes on Dragons Den are worth as much as Prince Charles.

Oh, I don't know. Take the Queen's personal art collection. Through bureaucratic sleight of hand, it's not counted as part of her wealth. However it's not a state posession. It's the most valuable private art collection in the world- woth hundreds of millions easily.

Secondly, you have to wonder how much the real estate of Buckingham Palace, St James' Palace and Clarence house are worth. If actually used, it would rival the wealth of the Duke of Westminster and Lord Cadogan.

Thirdly, Cowell pays corporation tax, capital gains tax and will be liable to death duties. The Royal family don't.

This is a total threadjack - but the point really is, none of this is worth tuppence unless someone is actually prepared to buy it, or they're covered by insurance and it burns down. Only then can you say if any of the Queen's possessions (or indeed anybody's) is actually "Worth" anything...


Back to Big Brother - I'm a bit pissed off with the way that C4 keeps playing white noise whenever Galloways keeps trying to say anything. He's a politician, the reason they had him on the show presumably is because of his outspoken views of politics, and yet they're blanking his comments out "to maintain political balance", but we're allowed to hear other people spout their views? Double standards me-thinks...

I do think Jodie Marsh should be evicted though, she's a usless irritiating bimbo. Plus she mings :gasmaske:

Don't worry about it! I can hardly take offense at someone making a joke about my grandad when he was called Jimmy Saville. :D

I'm more horrified at the idea of having your grandad actually BE Jimmy Saville :nervous:

You might have already read or heard this going around but here goes anyway:

Big Brother called Michael Barrymore into the diary room and told him to use the ashtrays instead of throwing fags into the pool.

I was sure Laz said that Pete Burns was straight but he keeps talking about getting back to his boyfriend. :confused:

I claim the defence of senility. There's every chance I'm confusing him with someone else.

Probably not. On last night's programme he got a video message from his "missus and his mister"

He's like an extension socket. You can plug anything in.

Just like a normal socket? :confused:

Extension socket.
That gets plugged in too.

You can plug an extension socket into an extension socket or into a normal socket?

Yeah, but you can't plug a normal socket into anything else.

Funko

Poor George?!

I take it that's a joke? What a bullying hypocritical arsehole. I mean, I always knew he was a bit of a cunt but yesterday he really ensured he's going to get the biggest boos ever when he's voted out tonight.

Tizzy

"Poor George" deserved everything he got, and more!

And surely such an apparently intelligent, articulate man should be able to argue without resorting to personal insults?

Meh - he's always seemed ok to me. Barrymore on the other hand is as much of a "bully" as GG (the Jodie Marsh stuff?). Hypocritical? Maybe - any examples you're thinking of? i've forgotten a lot of stuff by now.

For me Preston is the worst - his weaselly eyes make me think he is as much of a sneak as GG was saying he is.

Do you mean the "poor me poor me pour me a drink" stuff? I thought Pete Burns was saying afterwards that it's a well known saying and wasnt an insult? I didnt really get that part.

But said with that look on his face and repeating it over and over even after a couple of people had said it was out of order and combined with the mention of the cigarette thing it was quite obvious what he meant.

You're probably right, but last night everyone lost it a bit. I'm not sure that episode was an example of the "true" GG - more likely just accumulated frustration from him (and everyone involved).

Balls. He's a typical politician- pounce on the slightest indiscretion and use it to depict the transgressor as the lowest vermin on Earth. It's typical Galloway, but using it on dumb kids and family entertainers is just bullying.

He's been a politician so long that his soul has withered and died. It's an occupational hazard.

I think it ridiculous to compare playing the 'Big Brother' game to lying and double standards. Next thing you know there'll be accusations of lying next time you tell the kids a bedtime fairy story !

If George can honestly say he'd not have partaken of the offered luxuries, had he been in that position, well good for him. But my guess is that 99% would do so, and reasonably say that although they wished the others could too, it made no sense to refuse a gift simply because the others couldn't.

I'm not that impressed by the kids, but they're doing ok, taking their age, and lack of life experience into consideration.

Pete, on the other hand, seems to have lost the plot. On and on about how he thinks the kids should have been completely honest, even though he isn't always, and how awful the others are simply because they played it differently. Gee...

Michael can be controlling in his own way, but he's hardly the worst offender.

Seems folk lose a sense of proportion in there, but being bored out of your mind most of the day, with bouts of total dignity loss in between, it's little wonder.

I think I've been most impressed by Maggot (who I had to do a Net search for just to find out who he is).

Hmm... Perhaps for any of us, maybe it'd bring out the worst in us.
