I just watched the first episode and I won't be watching this that's for sure. Who the hell wants to watch a bunch of women unless you are a straight male or a homosexual woman. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

They just brought in a guy.  I heard he's the only one nominating this week.

Really, I don't think I can catch up. I mean I don't have time for an episode every day. I'm just going to stick to Pirate Master for now and wait for BB8 the US version.

That's alright.  It's hard to keep up with this show.

Hello! I'm watching...

I must admit the idea of an all female house was pretty off putting to start with but the inevitable catfights are starting to brew so it could be fun.

Amusing bit yesterday where Ziggy spent about 9 hours having dinner with each of the "lay-deez" in turn!

Who do we think he'll nominate? My money's on Charlie and possibly Nicky...

That was exactly what I was thinking.  Charlie and Nicky.  I still need to go to a BBUK fansite to see how he really did nominate.

And spending nine hours for eleven dinner dates!  I wonder how long it took him to get each meal.  I would have liked to see his date with Carole.  He talked about it with another girl (I forget), and it sounded like it was a fun date. 

Off to find out who he nominated!

Well it looks like who Ziggy nominated was pretty immaterial in the end!

Oh wow.  I'm very disappointed in Emily.  I was rooting for her to escape Eviction, and have Shabnam go.  Now I've lost my interest in Emily.

I honestly think under different circumstances this wouldn't have been such a big deal (especially in the context, given the fact they were doing some kind of gangster hip-hop type thing) but in the climate following Celeb BB I guess C4 didn't feel they had a choice.

By the way, I think Charley may have milked it somewhat to see if she could get Emily out...

I read the transcript, and you're right.  It does seem like Charley did it to get Emily out.  A normal person would have just said, "You said WHAT?!  Dlon't say it again." and then conversation over. 

Charley is a mean manipulative character in the house and I am waiting impatiently for her eviction.  I've never hated a houseguest (in BBUK) this passionately before. 

C4 had no choice, even if Charley tried to milk it out on purpose or not.  That word is something harsher to say - more than the F word.  In all, I'm disappointed with Emily.  I know she was joking around, but we all heard about Imus, how he was trying to get a laugh.  It's not worth it.

It sucks. I've been so busy lately, I have not had time to download or watch BBUK except the first episode. The misleading surprises were a neat idea.

At least you've been watching it.  This board has been pretty quiet by myself.  Did you notice Rob added a BBuk board here?  Awesome.

Yes, that's why I'm here. So, how far behind am I? I'll have to try and see if I can download some more. My friend got me hooked on Netflix and I've been watching Big Brother Season Three, another reason I ran out of time.

I believe you're 15 days behind.  Tonight will be Day16.  Two people have left (not evicted), three more have entered since the launch.  The first eviction is tomorrow.  That's a spolier-free lay-out of the last few weeks.

Cool. Two have left? Not over the  wall I hope. LOL
If only there were more hours in the day or I didn't have to download them.

Not over the wall, lol.  One had to be ejected because she uttered a racial slur, the other was bored and asked to leave.  I hope that's all for quitters, I hate it when people quit.

I wish she was too.  I was more surprised about who was nominated (besides Shabnam), than the fact Charley wasn't nominated.  I want her gone, like the rest of the public.

Bored and asked to leave? Now how dumb is that? Did she not know what she was getting into? Why do people bother?

It's exactly like George last year.  He didn't want all the fame.  Why did he want to go on Big Brother if he didn't want the public to recognize him outside the house?

Yes, George came to my mind also. Also, Donnie from the Celebrity BB left, though he claims he had had enough of Jade.

Would Leo from CBB5 count?  He quit because of underwear.  I'm not sure....

I think Leo was dumb also. A dumb reason to leave, but that was a great episode wasn't it? LOL
Dirk really wanted to leave but stuck it out, that was nice.

I'm glad Dirk stayed.  It was him and Shilpa who made the show watchable.  If they were evicted, I would have stopped watching.
