Title: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Kimmy629 on June 10, 2006, 08:32:36 AM
Hi all - new here so bear with me.

Have any of you had the opportunity to watch the British version of Big Brother?  That is where I originally became hooked on the show.  BB UK has a much more interesting version in my humble opinion.  BB makes the contestants actually DO things in order to win food for the week, luxury competitions etc.  I seem to remember this occuring on earlier American BB, but not the last few shows.  Another aspect of their show is that talking about who should be nominated or any discussion of nominations is strictly prohibited. 

Anyway, just wanted to throw some thoughts into the pot.  I hope BB7 has more activities for the poor contestants this year, seems like they never had to do anything except for the Golden Veto stunts.

Big Brother UK is SOOOO much better than the US version IMO.  I had the chance to watch it the past 2 years while visiting Corwall in the summer.  Much better run show without all the constant planning about alliances that take up half of the US show.

This is actually related so bear with me. I was watching Doctor Who on Friday and he was transported to the future where Big Brother was still going on. The only drawback was that the contestants were killed as they were evicted. It was pretty funny.

I've been meaning to look for BB UK on the net but have not had time to download anything let along watch it.

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 11, 2006, 09:20:02 AM
Just curious if anyone else is watching this. I just watched the first episode introducing all 14 houseguests. I must say, it's so much different than the American version, but whetting my appitite for the American version just as much.

I'm considering writing up an article for the news page. Anyone else want to be kept up to date on the UK version?
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: chunkylover53 on June 11, 2006, 09:24:12 AM
I would love it.  I have always thought the UK version was more interesting.

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 12, 2006, 07:07:51 AM
I just did my first review of Big Brother 2006 - UK - www.realityfanforum.com
I've been watching the last few episodes and have really been dragged in. It's very interesting.

I finished watching the first week and will be posting my notes tonight. Anyone else that has seen this, I would love to hear your comments on it so far. What a week! Drama Queens, Tirades, Ranting and Raving, Cheating and the closest I've ever seen to a housemate stoned to death to eliminate them. Check out the news page tonight for some VERY interesting stories.

How do you watch this?

I read your review....so at least one person read it.... :lol3:

Whom did you think I'd like?
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 13, 2006, 08:36:53 AM
Shahbaz! LOL Seriously if you watched the show I think you'd like Richard. His bark is worse than his bite. He's a real nice guy. Shahbaz on the otherhand is a nutcase, even Richard can'ts stand him. You have GOT to read my first weeks article when I post it.

Just for the record Cole, I've got several hundred hits for the article already and a few people welcoming me to the BB-UK. If you think BB is big here, you should see it there! The shows are daily, and they have a pre and post show as well.

No no no. LOL Seriously, the profile of them does not do anyone justice. From now on I think I will include links to youtube of some of the more hilarious stuff going on. I need to find a clip of Nikki pouting about not having bottled water. Again, look for the link to my review later tonight.

Post by: Bashful on June 14, 2006, 12:45:13 AM
Weren't there several more posts to this thread?   ???

I'm not a Big Brother lover, even though I did happen to watch the very first one in the US.  I had heard the UK version was very different, before it was mentioned here.  One day I was web surfing and came upon a UK version BB video and thought I'd check it out, just to see what all the hoopla is about.  Well, people should be aware they may get a whole lot more than they bargained for with the British Big Brother.

This video had a few people sitting around talking when one gal and guy decided to have ***.  We see them go to the bedroom and start putting up lots of things in front of the cameras so they could do some, um, undercover work.  Their only problem was they didn't know where ALL the cameras were.  They proceeded to get naked and get down to business.  I was SHOCKED, to say the least.  The video turned into X-rated porn, and there weren't any covers!   :o

I guess the censors of UK television are way, way more relaxed than we have here in the states.  Also, a lot of the language spoken was a whole lot of gross cursing, definitely things we don't hear on our TV.  I'm just mentioning this so others can be aware, should they be sensitive to (or disgusted by) those things.  Obviously, it's not my thing.

Week two recap of Big Brother is available here! www.realityfanforum.com
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 16, 2006, 08:28:37 PM
I've been keeping up with the BB7UK shows too.  This is also my first time watching the summer UK show and I've been addicted to it too.  I'm all caught up to the episodes available and it only gets better and better with the more episodes. 

Since I live in the US, I can't see this show on my Television, so I get it through mIRC on the the #survivor-central channel, if any of you are interested in seeing it yourself.  I think it's a definite watch if your a fan of the US version.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK

Thanks for the support. Also, anyone that wants to read the weekly reports, I have links for clips of each episode. You have to check these out.

Watching can take some getting used to.  Yes the censorship is more like HBO, Cinemax, ect. on all channels.

I already know the answer, but I'll read anyways cause this is such a great show!

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 09:30:01 AM
Yea, I'm just about caught up. I only need to catch up from last week, and I have a good idea I know who was evicted on Friday.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK

So you've seen the golden ticket winner enter already?
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 10:43:20 AM
Yep, all explained in the third week recap. Susie does seem nice. What are your impressions of her?
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 10:52:55 AM
Susie bores me.  She basically does nothing besides sun-bathing and sleeping in the golden bedroom.  I guess I haven't formed a complete inpression of her because they haven't given her enough air time besides the task they did in Week 4.  If she got into the Diary Room more, then I'll have a more complete impression of her.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 10:59:42 AM
Do you think it was fair for only her to give the nominations last Monday? I couldn't believe that.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 12:04:22 PM
No.  I don't.  It was a great twist to have only one person vote, but totally un-fair because Susie watched the show AND read the newspapers AND heard the audience chant when she entered.  If they brought someone in who was in isolation from the outside world into the house, then it would be fair. 
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 12:08:05 PM
I agree. I have not been able to figure out why they were chanting that though. I've never had a big problem, but I think because of that, she got worse and that may have been Susie's motivation for nominating her. Susie said she's been very guarded and suspicious, well wouldn't you be also if the crowd was chanting that, and a new housemate is chosen from someone out in that mess? I haven't fiished the week, but keep expecting Big Brother to pull Susie out of the game now. I don't know why, I was just thinking that.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 12:37:03 PM
Don't get your hopes up.  If you saw when Susie did the nominations, you'll hear BB say something like, "And please base your decision on your time in the house."  What she said about Grace seemed to be made up on the spot.  She wanted Grace out because it would earn her brownie points for the public, making her go father in the game and escape eviction if she got nomintaed.  Still, I doubt she'll win. 

I too have no idea why the public hated Grace.  Maybe it was because she was with Mikey and they wanted to tear them apart (like Sezer and Imogen).
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 01:14:07 PM
I agree about Susie, how can she NOT base her eviction on what she heard outside and how could Big Brother even police that if she didn't?
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 01:22:03 PM
Big No-no for BB
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 02:06:20 PM
I miss the antics of Shahbaz. "Sezer, quite while your ahead." "Don't bite the hand that feeds you." Even Richard couldn't stand him, so it's not like it was a gay thing, he was just annoying! LOL I think Nikki has taken Shahbaz's place.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 02:29:07 PM
Yea, I laugh every time Davina tells them they are live and "do not swear" yet that's all we hear them do during the dialy feeds. So what's the point?
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 02:29:24 PM
Shahbaz was great TV.  Too bad he had to quit.  I also how Richard couldn't get his name straight.  He kept calling him Shazar or Shahbang or something like that.  I just remember that was funny. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 02:31:59 PM
And hearing Pete say "W*nkers!" after Davina says that is hilarious!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: chunkylover53 on June 20, 2006, 03:10:19 PM
I am really enjoying this season.  So many twists to the game already. :tup:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 03:49:06 PM
I agree, and I love all the challenges. The BB Temp Agency was hilarious. Lea and Sam playing eye-spy. LOL
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 03:53:37 PM
Like when he made Shahbaz disappear? That was great.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 05:02:06 PM
I remember that!!!  LOL, "let's all just pretend there's no one living here with the name of Shahzar!".  I blame Richard for Shahbaz's demise, that's why I don't like Richard.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 05:04:18 PM
Rumor has it around BBuk fan sites that there is supposed to be a huge twist tomorrow.  Wonder what that'll be, if there is one (I doubt it).
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: chunkylover53 on June 20, 2006, 07:33:37 PM
Don't doubt it.  In the past they have done some big things.  Bring in past season HG.  They have sent 1 HG to another contries BB running at the same time switching them with on of their HG.  Yes they have real twists, not like the American game.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 08:14:12 PM
Yea, Richard is a bully. But he sure does cry like a BABY! LOL  :crybabe:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 08:20:30 PM
It would be neat for the American version to be more like the other BB's. I love how this is working out. Anyway, I'm going to catch a few more of last weeks episodes.

Oh, anyone figure out why George left? I still can't figure it out. I know he said he left because he doesn't think he can handle fame, but there has got to be something else. I was wondering if he was upset because of how much teasing went on with Shahbaz. Possibility???
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: chunkylover53 on June 20, 2006, 08:23:27 PM
After watching the UK version I have a hard time watching the US version.  Just too boring with too much time spent on strategy.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 09:25:03 PM
No clue why George left other than the Fame issue.  Maybe it was the guilt over Shahbaz, or maybe because he didn't like Sam  If you remember he quit after Sam got into the house.  If you remember on the premire episode, Davina said he was afriad of tran***uals.

And I don't mind the Strategies in the US.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 09:27:44 PM
When did he cry?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 09:29:44 PM
I like that they don't talk strategy on Big Brother UK. I wasn't sure how that would work, but it seems to work for them.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on June 20, 2006, 09:36:36 PM
IDK, usually I get bored watching them not talk about the game.  If they're at a task or doing Noms, or being evicted, then my eyes perk up.  I guess I like the strategy aspect of Big Brother, it passes the time by for me.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 20, 2006, 09:38:10 PM
Right after they made the homemade hooch and Big Brother confiscated it and gave them booze in exchange.  Sezer and Richard got into a big fight and Sezer called Ricahrd a bully, Richard went off by himslef and cried. You can find the fight mentioned on day 14 - of my Second week recap. There is a video clip of the fight, but I don't think there is video of him crying. But it happened right after that.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 21, 2006, 07:30:12 AM
Hm...I guess I missed that.  I remember the hooch, just not crying and the fight.  I guess I'll read your post and refresh my memory.

I'll be posting week four review, and then this week I'm going to post only a few days at a time. I'll do Friday, Saturday, Sunday as one review. Monday and Tuesday as the next and Wednesday and Thursday as the last.

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 21, 2006, 08:51:34 AM
As I'm getting closer to the daily shows, I think it'll be harder to find clips on youtube though. But chances are my articles will be picked up on google, being shorter.

Do you also watch Big Brother Little Brother?  Big Brain?  Diary Room Uncut?  I don't, but I was just wondering if you watch any of the spin-offs.

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 21, 2006, 09:18:29 AM
Once I'm totally caught up I plan on catching them if I have time. I only saw the first episodes of those.
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: TheCinera on June 21, 2006, 09:19:47 AM
I just find them boring because half the time they don't talk about BB
Title: Re: Big Brother 7 - UK
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 21, 2006, 09:24:15 AM
Yea, I'd find that boring also. Especially if I have 2 hours worth of Big Brother to watch every day.

Whenever I accumlate Eps of BB on my com, I try to spread them out throughout my day.  One ep in the morning, one in the afternoon.  That way I'm not yawning during the second one.

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 21, 2006, 10:55:26 AM
Yes, especially when Imogen was locked in the bathroom. I wish she hadn't heard the trap door opening up. I also liked the temping agency. Glyn really did give 100%, and I laughed so hard watching him open the tin of tuna and scooping it out by hand.

I thought the Supermodel task was hilarious.  That was an awesome task to watch.

What do you all think about what the HGs did to Richard and Susie's pictures.  I liked Susie's mutilated pic, but what they did to Richard's was too immature.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 29, 2006, 03:05:07 PM
What exactly did Lisa do to Richards? I must have been writing when they showed it. All I know is that Richard peeked out to see what was going on and thought the pictures looked fine. LOL Or maybe he didn't see his because it fell. Yes, I love the tasks they have for the housemates. Ooops, there's the music, time to march around! LOL

P.S. I'm watching the eviction tonight so I'll be caught up that way tonight. LOL

Well, we don't need to worry about Lisa anymore.
So, what does everyone think about the new twist? Kind of odd. I'm still not sure if I understand it right.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on June 30, 2006, 12:34:49 PM
I think its lame.  I don't want any more new houseguests.  I was complaining about the KitKat Winner entering.  Anyone hear about what they're planning to do for a trick on the HGs?  If not, they might tell the HGs that England has won the world cup, which I'm inferring that they actually lost.  I haven't been keeping up with the world cup, so I wouldn't know.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 30, 2006, 12:37:14 PM
Looks like Brazil won if I'm reading this right. http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8672.0

That would be a dirty trick to play.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on June 30, 2006, 12:58:53 PM
I just flipped to ESPN and it looks like the World Cup hasn't ended yet.  Italy is Playing Ukraine in about an hour.  I bet the housemates would think that it would be wierd that the World Cup is over this soon (assuming if they play the joke on tonight's eviction.)
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 30, 2006, 01:09:40 PM
Maybe the joke is the new neighbors. I still wonder how that is going to work. I think it would be funny if the neighbor house was all the housemates voted out already. So even if they vote them out, they still have to deal with them. As for the five new people added, I wonder if they will really be added as housemates, or just there to stir up trouble. So the next person evicted is sent there, and so they will have to deal with them yet.. LOL
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on June 30, 2006, 01:13:05 PM
I heard that the current housemates that the viewers 'evict' will choose one out of the 5 who goes into the original house and is eligible for the prize, along with the evicted HG.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on June 30, 2006, 03:05:23 PM
Weird. One thing I do like about any format of Big Brother is all the surprises throughout the season.
I was not a big fan of the Big Brother Majorettes but thought it was funny when they had to march around the house when the band music plays. I think the best one so far was the State of Susie. The pledge of allegience was hysterical!

I'm supposed to be working on that now, but suddenly we got Audio feeds from Big Brother and I started working on that.
No, 40 is my next episode to watch. I loved the alarm they played the day after Glyn got drunk. LOL

I'm finally caught up to last weeks eviction episode. I will be watching that tonight.

Post by: TheCinera on July 05, 2006, 11:29:42 AM
I just saw last week's eviction this morning.

Did you find it funny what BB said to Pete in the Diary Room during Nominations? 
Pete: I...uh...nominate...wankers...uh...Dave!
BB: Pete, there is no one in the house named Dave.

The sabatoge task was great, they should do that in the USA version.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 06, 2006, 01:54:26 PM
Yes, I like that idea. It would have to be a task where it's harder to sabotage. I seriously didn't think Imogen would have a hard time, and I was right. I have a feeling that had they housemates just given up on the task, then Imogen's would have passed either because she failed in sabotaging. Hard to sabotage something that's not being used.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 06, 2006, 02:00:30 PM
But if they did the milk task in the house in the USA without them having a mole, then that would be fun.  Us Live feeders would enjoy wantching that.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 06, 2006, 02:10:36 PM
I've thought about signing up for the UK live feeds also. LOL

Post by: TheCinera on July 06, 2006, 02:12:56 PM
I was referring to the USA live feeds.  People in the US can't get the UK live feeds for some reason.  It's on the Channel 4 website.

I didn't realize that. Oh well, I have enough to watch with our BB anyway.

Wow, your over a week behind.  I'm still trying to catch up too.  I'm near where the 7th eviction is.  What'd you think of the new housemates?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 10, 2006, 11:27:23 AM
Actually, I have another review at home about ready to release tonight, and have time tonight to catch up on a few more episodes so I'm actually starting to get caught up.

Hmm, don't tlike them too much. I think it was hilariouls to see Jayne break the bed. What a dork! LOL
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 10, 2006, 11:56:13 AM
Oh cool.  I loved Jayne breaking the bed.  I was also glad she went first out of the other four.  I don't know how far you are in the series, but after Jayne got evicted, the story in the House Next Door got alot better.  Personalities really started to come out.  I like Spiral the best.  He's damn good entertaining and very likeable.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 10, 2006, 12:00:11 PM
It wasn't a big surprise that Jayne was out first. She seems to think she funner than she really is. She kind of reminds me of the guy from "The Office" (American or UK version) where the manager thinks he's everones friend but no one can stand him.

I can't believe she was jumping on the bed, how embarrasing for her, but knowing her personality she didn't think anything of it.

New housemate - and Aisleyne's move is written up in a special article. Now available:
www.realityfanforum.com
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 10, 2006, 02:11:48 PM
Yeah Jayne's annoying.  She'll probably be evicted by the public when she's put up for Eviction.  I think everyone else is swell.  They all have their qualities that make the show just a tad bit better.  It'll be interesting to see how the public likes the new housemates when they're put up for eviction.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 10, 2006, 02:15:53 PM
What's funny is that Aisleyne will keep the one person she probably gets along with the best, and that will be the only one not going with her. LOL, JOKES ON YOU AISLEYNE! Is it just me, or is Jonathan surprisingly very smart. Right away he assumed BB would make her vote the housemates in the new house out.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 10, 2006, 02:49:53 PM
Johnathan is great.  How long do you bet they've been isolated from the outside world before they entered?  I doubt they would lock them up for 2 months and then put them in in a midway surprize twist.  I think it's only been 2 weeks.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 10, 2006, 02:53:30 PM
Yea, I think it was about the same time that Aisleyne and Sam went into the house. I forget when that was but 2 weeks sounds about right. None of them seem to know Aisleyne so it has to be around the same time.

PS, I was watching BBBM and Lisa was on the panel. Normally where they list their names, hers said "Swearing Enthusiast." Funny!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 10, 2006, 03:00:30 PM
What episode was it?  I'll have to Download it.  I think Aisleyne and Sam entered the house 5 weeks ago actually.  I remember it was before Sezer got evicted in Week 2 and they just finished Week 7's evicition.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 10, 2006, 03:09:43 PM
I think it was the post-eviction show. The one where Davina introduces the housemates. I may be mistaken though. Either that, or it was on the tail end of the "eviction" episode. BTW, what did you think of Aisleyne's eviction dress?  :lol3:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 10, 2006, 11:07:41 PM

Post by: TheCinera on July 11, 2006, 12:57:14 PM
I just finished Day53.  Day54 premired yesterday in the UK and that's the episode I'm on.  I believe it's nominations for the 8th eviction.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version

Cool, we are both getting close to be caught up. I plan on a few more episodes tonight.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 11, 2006, 01:22:43 PM
What do you think about Aiselyne evicting Johnathan?  Who should she have evicted instead?  If she knew only one of the "Clones" would be evicted for real, I think it would've been Jayne.  She annoys me, so does Michael for some reason now.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 11, 2006, 01:35:08 PM
Jayne annoyed me from the first time we met her. Truly she is Glyn's perfect match. I have yet to know Michael more, but for now I don't mind him. I knew she liked Spiral and realized she ws going to let him go. But those crocodile tears were to much, and that's what I think they were, or just stress. So far I like Jennie, but Spirals hip hop can get on my nerves.

What about Lea? I read a spoiler but have not seen Friday's show yet.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 11, 2006, 01:53:27 PM
Jayne annoyed me before she even before she entered the house.  And Gyln and Her turley fart and burp like they're twins.   :-\

I don't get what you're asking about Lea.  Are you asking me if Lea or Richard got evicted on Friday?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 11, 2006, 02:02:18 PM
How Lea is all over Pete all the time and everyone seem to be getting more and more annoyed with her. She was calling Pete her son.  :groan:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 11, 2006, 02:38:20 PM
Yeah, she's a hypocrite, saying that he's practically her son, but she fancys him.   :umn:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 11, 2006, 02:50:32 PM
She wonders why no one likes her and why she got all those boos, but she's so fake - literally. I guess she doesn't realize that not every man wants a woman with all fake parts. What is it she had done? Tummy tucks, lypo, beast implants, lip injection, face lift. What else?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 11, 2006, 04:07:04 PM
Yeah she is, but there's been worse boos for the evictees.  Like Grace. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 11, 2006, 04:35:56 PM
GET GRACE OUT! Classic.
Still, as a person I didn't mind Lea so much. But if I had to put up with Jayne I'd go insane. Can you imagine a date with her? YIKES!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 11, 2006, 04:46:01 PM
Having a date with any of the women in the BB household would be hell.  Except for maybe Aisleyne or Jennie.

I know what you mean babe. By the way babe, I don't like MIkey. He's like my babe, babe. But we are not like intimate. Grace is my babe, why would I take her boy? Besides, my babe Sezer is being true to me. Isn't that right babe?

I actually just got it up and running this morning.  All I needed to do was uninstall all the programs on it and then the internet worked.  I finished Downloading Day54 and am Downloading Day55 now.  I'm leaving in an hour to my camp, so I'll be back on Saturday or Friday night, but I'll be seeing the latest Nominations there on my iPod.  It has no internet, but a TV that has CBS (thank god, I get to the US Evcition tonight). 

I'll try cwshredder when I get back.  That may come in handy the next time the Internet goes bust.  Thanks for the idea of the program.

Just watched the nominations. How messed up is that? I think it was dumb not to have Jayne put up also. BBUK truly is evil!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 16, 2006, 08:27:18 AM
I think it was a great twist.  It not only lets the public choose from a more variety of houseguests that maybe might not be voted out for weeks, and it punishes Jayne for talking about the outside world for making her fellow HGs hate her and possibly make her nominated the following week.  BBuk is definitely evil, but I love it!  :jam:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 16, 2006, 09:56:48 PM
Also it will inspire others to stop her if she begins talking about it again.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 16, 2006, 10:43:04 PM
I doubt it'll help.  Jayne's a loud mouth, hence why she's in the house.  I hope she's evicted soon though.  God she's the new Grace, so annoying and bitchy.

That may be good.  How far are you now?  I'm up to EP61 now, but I'll be leaving tonight for Philadelphia, so I won't be able to get the episodes for next few days.  I'll be bringing my laptop though.

And yes!  Anyone who watches this show should definitely give us some input.  Even if you read Jeff's Articles, please tell us what you like about this show!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 20, 2006, 11:36:56 AM
Essentially, I'm about as far as I've recapped so far. But that's why I want to do a bare-bones recap to catch up. It's not the time it takes to watch the episodes for me, it's the work in writting it up and revising. Sometimes a review can take me as long as an hour after every two or three episodes. Even with the past few recaps I've tried to go real basic. I think from now till I'm caught up I'll just recap the evictions, nominations and results of the tasks.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 20, 2006, 11:45:47 AM
That would be good.  How do you think about Jayne and her latest rule breaking?  She really could be a mole lol.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 20, 2006, 02:11:40 PM
You know, I was thinking the same thing. Jennie said it best, "It's not that hard to do."
If she is not a mole, I can't believe they don't just evict her, but it's probably more fun for Big Brother to punish the others as a result of her problems.

As for when the rest of the housemates go, I have heard a rumour about a mass eviction but have not seen it yet. I have also heard a rumour that the house next door may be coming back.

Now, with the finale coming up on month away, I wonder why they brought in fresh meat. I hated that twist, I really did.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 20, 2006, 10:59:36 PM
I agree 100%.  It was a horrible twist to have early on in the season.  Maybe if they did it about 2-3 weeks into the season, not at week 7!  Although I wonder what they might do again with the house next door. 

The public could vote for the top 5 they like out of all the housemates, move them next door and convince the others in the Big Brother House that they were evicted (but actually just moved next door).  Then next week, tell the HGs in the BB house that everyone is nominated but what they don't know is that they all have lost the game and everyone will be evicted on friday.  Then the top 5 in the house next door moves back into the regular house and battles it out for the finale.  That would be a good time-saving twist!
Title: Last weeks eviction.
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 24, 2006, 11:21:44 AM
PS, I have seen the Nikki eviction and am catching up with last week. As mentioned before, I'm just doing brief notes on each episode till I catch up, then I'll go back to my full articles.

Nikki is such a ding-dong, Davina had to tkae her hand and bring her out of the house. LOL
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 24, 2006, 11:28:51 AM
I noticed that.  Nikki was so nervoud the crowd hated her, that she didn't want to leave.  And especially leave Pete.  Poor Pete, having him mum and "lover" evicted in back-to-back weeks.

It is confirmed that there will be a double eviction this week.  And Big Brother promises next week to be the most twisted week ever, with the return of "The House Next Door" in a twist not even the producers of the USA version could think up of. 
Hint: It involves a Prision and Jail Guards. 

At this moment, 10 people remain and 4 weeks left.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 24, 2006, 11:32:59 AM
This is my first BBUK season as I've said before. Perhaps there is more of a 'pot' to choose from on the last show? Maybe they have four people to choos from to win the money?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 24, 2006, 11:43:01 AM
This is my first time getting into a BB UK season, but I did get into last Winter's Celebrity edition in which they put in a non-celebrity in the house to conivnce the others that she really was a celeb.  She was cute, but not cute enough for me to watch it all the way through.  The non-celebrity won the game too and is now famous and has her own song out.

I think they have three to choose from at the end.  The finale is Friday, August 18th.  I think they'll have to have more double evictions if they want to get rid of that many people by the 18th. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 24, 2006, 03:42:00 PM
Yes, several weeks with double eliminations seems the most logical.
But then agian, who can figure out the logic of BBUK.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 24, 2006, 10:11:46 PM
This is a hard reality show to figure out, but better than the US Version because the UK has stronger personalities (minus Susie).  Plus, the UK has better tasks that the US. 

They should do a swap with the US and trade Pete for Chicken George.  Haha CG on BB UK would be awesome.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 24, 2006, 11:06:31 PM
Okay, I'm through last weeks nominatins plus the next episode. So, I'm speedily catching up. How far are you?
Yea, it's such a different game there. It's a shame the format didn't work here, but that was why they retooled the idea after Season One here.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 25, 2006, 08:22:39 AM
I'm about to watch the nominations after Nikki's eviction.  I already know Jayne and Richard got nominated.  Hmmm...this is a tough descion for the public.  LOL. :snicker:

I saw the premire episode of BB1 US and it was horrible.  I think the reason why it failed was not because of the concept, but of the people on there.  No strong personalities (except for Chicken George and Josh Souza).  That's why BB UK's concept is so good, they have excellent personalities (i.e. Pete, Nikki, Shahbaz, Aisleyne, Richard, and Lea).
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version

Spiral is becoming quite the character, Pete is starting to fizzle out. All his friends are leaving - who's he closest to now? Probably Ricahrd or Jayne. LOL

Did you find BBUS S01 on a torrent? I wouldn't mind checking that out either.

After tonight I should be through Friday's eviction and just about ready to start up the articles. I do have a bridger article, and may use the same format. With luck, it'll be up tonight or tomorrow.

Last weeks recap is up, though brief.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 27, 2006, 07:01:54 AM
Pete is starting to get boring now, I agree.  He's barely in the shows, and the Tourettes are getting quite old now.  Now I have a new favorite: Gyln.  He looks like he should win more thahn Pete. 

I found BB1 US on mIRC.  Anyone who haven't watched it should give it a try just to compare all the characters from that season and find out WHY CG was picked to be an All-Star.

I finished watching last week's nominations, and I'm about 8 episodes behind.  Luckily, I'm leaving to my Camp today and will be watching those there on my iPod, so I might be all caught up by the Weekend.  I already know who got evicted, and this week's nominations though.

Did you hear Nikki is getting her own show?  I heard about it last night when Downloading Day 70 Daily.  It's called, "Princess Nikki" and it'll follow her going around doing hard and wierd jobs (remember when she worked at the temp agency in a previous BB Task?).  Think the Simple Life minus Paris and plus Nikki.  I may Download that too.  I believe they said it'll premire after BB7 UK ends.

I was thinking the Simple Life when you suggested it. LOL
Those $^$% at Google didn't pick up my article. Oh well, I'll be caught up. For some reason any time I do a full week recap it never gets picked up. I wonder if it has something to do with the title. ???

I'm working on a new BBUK article dealing with some of the more naughtier bits of BBUK that really don't get that much attention, but seem to get noticed in the Australian show for some reason. If anyone watching the BBUK has a moment they recall that made them or someone in the show feel awkward PM me.

For example, I'm including the Sezer/Shahbaz lockout story, the Spiral/Aisleyne naked story and the Mikey bites Aisleyne's bum story. I've got a few emails to both CBS and BBC to see if I will get any feedback from them on the story and then I'll be posting it.

So, that's what's going on in the world of the BBUK this week. :)

For the story, how about including the Spin the Bottle games they played?  And there was one time before a task stared that Jayne ran into the garden topless.  I don't remember when it was, but I do remember that was awkward.

Just found a new story! Mind you, it's coming from the SUN!

Quote
Police arrest Big Brother's Sezer
Big Brother contestant Sezer Yurtseven has been arrested and bailed by police investigating an alleged rape.

A City of London police spokesman confirmed a 26-year old man was arrested following an "alleged incident of rape on Friday morning".

The arrest relates to an incident said to have happened at the Great Eastern Hotel in east London, close to Liverpool Street station.

Londoner Mr Yurtseven was voted off the Channel 4 reality game show on 2 June.

A police spokesman added: "He has now been bailed to reappear in Bishopsgate police station on a date in August."

The Sun newspaper said the alleged victim reported the attack within hours and was interviewed by specialist officers.

Mr Yurtseven, a stockbroker, denies the allegation and will answer bail on 17 August, the newspaper said.

I'm really enjoying watching the friends task.  That is wickedly hilarious!  I think that the songs they wrote were absolutely great, especially the one Pete wrote which I made an MP3 of too.  I was bobbing my head in rhythm.  Now I see why he is a songwriter and singer in the outside world.

And IMO, the house is alot more entertaining now that Jayne was evicted.  I'm enjoying the shows more.  I just started watching the episode in which half of them are in a BB Prison and that is awesome!

Post by: TheCinera on July 31, 2006, 10:14:27 AM
I'm watching Saturday's Episode, and I saw the Eviction Interview today.  I would like to catch up totally today so I can focus more on the USA Live Feeds. 

What do you think about the Prison task and the secret hide-out?  I loved it and how they have to keep it secret.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 31, 2006, 10:19:21 AM
That was neat. The prison guards thought they had it better, but the prisoners were living it up! Beautiful! You'll never see anything like that on the US version. I don't get Pete, he was upset being there??? I'm losing interest in him, I would like to see Mikey or Richard win. Yes, Richard is annoying, but he's a good player.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on July 31, 2006, 10:54:49 AM
I am losing interest in Pete too.  I wish Nikki was still there because she was a hoot.  My picks for the final three are Pete, Ashleyne and Glyn.  I don't mind Mikey that much, but I feel he won't make it to the end, possibly the final 4.  After you watch the latest eviction, I'll say how I think the next evictions will go.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on July 31, 2006, 10:59:33 AM
I'll be watching it tonight. Perhaps I'll do a review of how I think the others will fair. I also have a good idea who is evicted, but still not 100 percent sure so I can't wait till tonight to watch. You don't have to say if I'm wrong or right, but I'm assuming it'll be Michael and Spiral. They are so new to the game and people dislike both of them. Richard and Pete will be safe because no one (hardly) will vote Pete out, and I think Imogen has enough fans to keep her in the game for a while yet. Now, who is Imogen best friends with? I know all the other pairs except for her, it's like she has a ghost for a best friend.  :lol3:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 07:27:20 AM
Haha, well look at everyone's faces when the Inmates get their letters from home.  Everyone in both houses are crying or shocked, except for the Ghost who looks like she is thinking, "Why is everyone crying?  They're only letters!".  The ghost doesn't even get off the couch to look at the screen and watch the Inmates.  I want her gone this week if she's nominated.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 09:26:27 AM
Yea, I noticed that! Why did she want to be on the show??? I don't get it. She does not deserve to win, especially since her husband pretty much bought her ticket in.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 09:55:56 AM
I bet you a million bucks that she'll be nominated this week.  She doesn't do anything and is so boring to watch.  I don't think I've seen her in the DR for over a week.  I think the only reason she is on the show is to get rid of everyone's rude habits because she's so posh. 

I've been reading other BBuk fansites and they all want Susie out this week too, so if she's nominated, then she's leaving!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 10:38:34 AM
Her and Imogen were booed as much as Michael and Spiral. The only reason they did not go was because Imogen is liked more than all three of the others put together. Funny how Richard calls Imogen plastic, but Susie is so plastic as to be un-noticed. Susie is noticed about as much as the black bean bag.

LOL, Next year we should do a BBUK podcast.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 10:50:56 AM
There's a black bean bag in the house?  I never noticed.  I heard Spiral/Michael got only 9.6% of the vote to stay in.  I bet Susie/Imogen got 10.4% and Pete/Richard got the other 80%. 

And for the BBuk podcast....I am totally up for that.  It could be a RFFradio podcast spin-off!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 10:59:54 AM
That would be cool. And this time I'd start on time so keep up to date with it. BTW, watched part of Saturdays show yesterday.

I wouldn't doubt  that about Pete and Richard. Richard sure is getting lucky.

There is a Susie in the house?  Nooo...really?  Are you joking?  Are you thinking of Sezer?  Sezer was evicted, you know.  There's no one named Susie in the house.  I think they named the tricycle "Susie", I think. ???
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 12:06:56 PM
Wasn't Susie the one they locked outside, so Susie was so upset she hid the food on them? Maybe that's who I'm thinking of.

Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 12:22:53 PM
Are sure you're thinking of Shahbaz?  I remember that I really liked him.  He was great to watch. 

Now who won the Golden Ticket contest?  I don't know if they're still in the house or not.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 12:39:04 PM
I thnk the Golden Ticket was something Aisleyne made up. Didn't she tell Nikki she came into the house with a Golden Ticket to make her jealous?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 01:06:47 PM
I think you're right.  Ashleyne did Joke around with Nikki that she won the golden ticket from a Kit-Kat bar (I remember it made me crave one.)  MMM....Kit Kats. 

It could've been cool if one of us won the golden ticket here in the US and responded so a USA person could go into the BBuk house.  That's be a cool twist. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 01:56:34 PM
Yea, I wonder how Richard got in. Canadian is the closest they have to an American. I wish America had a twist with the UK once where they would send housemates back and forth. I think they did that once with UK and AUS.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 02:07:11 PM
They were talking about it on the UK show this season, I remember.  I hope they put Nikki in the USA show, that would be funny watching her eat slop.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 02:19:20 PM
Come on, if Nikki were on the US version she'd walk and you know it.
They should put together a BB of the walk-outs. They almost have enough. Shahbaz, George, who else walked out? Nikki almost did, at least she threated to on no more than six or seven times.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 02:20:35 PM
Dawn was technically "Ejected" (that's what it says on the channel 4 website).  I don't think she'd be on it.  I would love to see Shahbaz again!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 02:49:43 PM
She was only ejected after she requested to leave. I think she came up with the whole 'code' thing to ensure she'd be put out right away. I still can't figure out what her whole spiel was. She hated it in the house, I wonder why. She seemed nice while she was in the house.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 03:42:12 PM
I remember before she entered the house she said in the Pre-Show interview that she is a "Self-described Serial Complainer".  I was interested in seeing her in the house cause she'd make great TV, but then when she went in, she hardly ever complained.  Wierd.  I do remember the code, but it was too far ago to remember exactly what happened.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 03:51:52 PM
I remember. Supposedly her sister was going to write her and let her know a family member was really sick. The code was that meant she was getting negative press. I don't recall her getting any bad press, so that's part of why I thought it was all a hoax. Big Brother was getting tired of people walking out and decided to make one of them appear to be ejected, instead of leaving of their own accord. If you recall, she already said she wanted to leave when she got the message from home.

Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 03:57:47 PM
I remember that the Narrator said in that episode Dawn said Shut Up 53 times.  It did look kind of fake cause she was nominated and didn't look like she'd be the one going.  I would've liked to see more of her, but go figure.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 04:01:57 PM
By the way, I forgot to mention.

You gave me the lettter, Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. You decided to give me the letter. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Let me out of here. Oh shut up. Oh shut up. Oh shut up.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 01, 2006, 08:40:30 PM
Was that letter from her sister?  I think that Dawn was quite smart with her code.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 01, 2006, 11:43:18 PM
It was from her sister or 'about' her sister. I forget which. Also, if she were using a code, why would she announce it so vocally to the others? I think she knew she was going to be ejected quicker that way.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 02, 2006, 08:12:54 AM
Probably.  If I was in the house, I wouldn't care about guessing my popularity.  If I got evicted, I'd stand up proudly to the public, and take the money I've earned from the producers in the short (or long) time I'd spend in the house.  I think I'd make a dandy good housemate in the UK.  The public would love me!

Either way, Dawn's an idiot.  Did you hear she had to be hospitalized because she went on a hunger strike agianst the BB producers in order to get the tapes of the show that was edited to show Dawn as a horrible person?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 02, 2006, 08:21:12 AM
Dawn was an idiot. I think we both agree about that.
Anyone that walks out is an idiot. I think the only exception was Shahbaz. Sezer was mean to him. To be honest, I wonder if George decided to leave the show after that because he was one that stole his clothes then. I wonder if he regretted that. I've never looked up any follow-up stories to him.

Nikki Not Returning To The House
Nikki will not be returning to the house, nor will any other ex-housemate, Endemol has confirmed.
The Daily Stay today printed a story which suggested that Nikki may be returning to the house in the near future, due to low viewing figures.
Endemol denied the story had any substance to it at all.

Big Brother's On Holiday (possible spoiler)

This sounds like a fun new twist. Can't wait to see it.










Big Brother went on holiday, but made sure to send the housemates a postcard to let them know.

The housemates were woken by an alarm, and as the blinds lifted Richard, Aisleyne and Glyn struggled out of bed to discover an enormous postcard stuck under the door of the Diary Room.

"Margate by night" read Aisleyne, as Richard squatted over the phone that had appeared outside the Diary Room, but playing with the receiver elicited no response. "Well at least someone's getting a holiday," he shrugged, and headed to the Diary Room with Aisleyne to find a telephone keypad, but no Big Brother.

"Press one to leave a message, two to make a request, zero to leave the Diary Room," said Aisleyne, coming out to explain the system to the other housemates. "We can do whatever we want 'cos they're not here. They hate us. How can they leave us? I don't like it without them here. I want Big Brother back."

Stick with BBUK for the latest.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 02, 2006, 10:39:55 AM
I just finished watching that episode.  It told Pete, Glyn, and Ashleyne that they've been evicted.  They think it's either a programming error, or a twist.  Hmmm...

Glyn kept pressing the numbers 6 and 9 (in that order).   :lol3:
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 02, 2006, 10:58:05 AM
LOL, that is funny. They are so clever over there. Brilliant!
So, what happened after Glyn pressed it? Anything?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 02, 2006, 11:02:54 AM
The Automated Big Brother said, "You have You Have Pressed Pressed the the number number Six.  Nine."  Over and over, and then it got lame after the 20th time he pressed it.  Then they played Elevator Music and he kept pressing the number 3.  It's a really funny episode.  They paint postcards and have a super-soaker fight!

Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 03, 2006, 09:22:37 AM
I think they do.  I've checked om mIRC what happens at the end and there is a live finale, and interviews, and a reunion.  I can't wait to see it this season.

I'm watching Susie nominate, and it's the funniest thing.  She's put on hold.  Watch the nominations ASAP because it's the funniest thing that's happened to Susie all season.  For once, something associated with Susie is entertaining.

NO, I was gone for the weekend and fell behind again. I'm concentrating my articles on the US for the time being so I'll be watching the rest of the shows tonight to catch up.

I don't know if I have BBC-America, but if I did, I wouldn't watch it all the time there because it's too much work keeping up with the show. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 09, 2006, 12:00:49 PM
I love BBC-America. I'm a British fan if that wasn't obvious. They started to run a new sci.fi. show were a cop from today is transported back to 1973. It's very interesting as he continues to get flashes from today and hears people from today, but no one else does. He assumes he's dreaming and in a coma.

As for having the show on BBC-America, it would work better for me because I could automatically set my DVR to record each show. Then just watch it when I have the time. NO worries about downloading it.

Good point, I could set mine too and not get my computer swamped with Virus'.

I wonder what the reaction would be if the American Big Brother went on holiday.
But then again, in the UK, Big Brother is more of a character. In the US they really don't play up Big Brother except to scold the houseguests or call them to the diary room. I don't think I've ever heard the US version talk to the houseguests in the diary room. that's what I like about the UK version, it's fun.

Yeah, we see BBuk has a personality.  They have multiple voices and multiple ways BB interacts. 
The BBus has the same voice and all it says to the HGs is "Please come to the Diary Room." and "This is a lockdown".  I've never heard BBus talk in the Diary room...ever!!

And having BBusa leave on vacation wouldn't have much effect.  We don't hear BB on of the USA show, so the HGs wouldn't miss them as much as the UK HGs did.

I have yet to get to the eleimination but I think Susie is finally gone.

My favorite Aisleyne part so far.
you have, you have, pressed, you have, pressed, pressed, five, you have, six, pressed, you have, seven, pressed, you have, four, you have been evicted.
"I don't want to be evicted." Then leaves the diary room crying. Dork!

Post by: TheCinera on August 12, 2006, 08:36:41 AM
She was talking about it on one of the episodes this week.  I think she's almost done filming it and she had to get a little dog with a pik bow on (like Paris on The Simple Life).  She didn't say much of what she did, I just remember she mentioned it.  I'm going to try and see it, but I'll be in college when it premires and won't be able to get it until I come home on vacations.  I would love to see it though. 

I just finished watching part one of last night's eviction.  I'm going to watch the ex-housemate move in now.

Nice, I still need to watch Saturday's (the 12) episode too.  I'm noticed the latest episode isn't up yet for a torrent.  Usually its there at 9PM.

And that was stupid of what Gyln did.  I was wondering what he did over at the House next Door.  That was entertaining though, I liked watching it, but I did think he was going to be evicted too.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 14, 2006, 06:44:44 AM
At frist I thought that was someone who had climbed over or something. I just couldn't believe Glyn was the person. I guess it's hard to imagine the emotions that overtake you when you've been cooped up for so long. I think Pete is guaranteed a win now.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 14, 2006, 08:22:11 AM
Pete is going to win on Friday.  Big Brother is a roller-coaster ride and Glyn is only 18.  He is young and naive.  Put him in a house with other strong characters and tempt him with some of his friends being next door.  BB should have known he would do something crazy, but I wasn't expecting he would climb on the wall.

I think there is alot of people to choose from for the final week.  In the USA, everyone chooses from two poeple.  In the UK, we have 6!?!?  I would have liked to see another double eviction, dwindle the houseguests down to four. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 14, 2006, 08:27:39 AM
I agree. But most of the people there have no chance of winning. I doubt Jennie, Aisleyne or Richard will win. Nikki, Glyn and Pete have a much better chance. There were people on the chanel4 forum saying that a betting company had closed bets on Aisleyne and she was going to win, but everyone in response to the message said he was just dreaming. I'll have to see if I can find the odds of the housemates winning.

BB's Pete may receive live TV 'ban'
The Press Association Monday August 14, 12:09 PM

BB's Pete may receive live TV 'ban'
Click to enlarge photo
Big Brother housemate Pete may not be allowed to appear on live TV shows because he suffers from Tourette's Syndrome.

He involuntarily shouts obscenities when he is nervous - and swearing isn't allowed on daytime television programmes.

TV schedules are being hastily moved around to accommodate the 24-year-old's disability, according to The Sun.

Dermot's Big Brother's Little Brother (BBLB) will be moved from its usual Sunday lunchtime position to an evening slot.

"Pete is set to win but even if he comes second or third he is going to be a vital part of any BBLB," a Channel 4 source told the paper.

"The decision has been taken to move BBLB to a prime-time slot so he can swear as much as he likes."

The Brighton comic will not be allowed to appear on live interviews for shows such as GMTV and Richard & Judy.

It is also reported Pete will sign up with John Noel Management - who already look after Davina McCall and Dermot O'Leary - and that they have a plan to deal with his swearing, such as pre-recording interviews.

BB punters keep piling on the cash
The Press Association Monday August 14, 12:50 PM

BB punters keep piling on the cash
More than £5 million has been gambled on this year's Big Brother, bookmakers Ladbrokes revealed.

The amount - across the whole of the bookmaking industry - means that more than £56,179 in wagers have been placed every 24 hours on the Channel 4 show, said the bookmaker.

Ladbrokes spokesman Nick Weinberg said: "This series of Big Brother has smashed all records."

"Despite the outcry over a number of the show's stunts, punters have kept the faith," he added.

The favourite to win the series - now in its final week - is Tourette's sufferer Pete. His odds to win the show have slightly lengthened from 1/6 to 1/5.

Nikki - who caused an outcry by being voted back into the house last week - is proving not very popular with punters. Her odds have drifted from 12/1 to 20/1, as her relationship with Pete continues.

Mr Weinberg said: "Both Pete and Nikki seem to be suffering as a result of their lovey dovey antics. But Pete has got plenty to play with and is still the nailed on favourite. But Nikki's drifting like an unmanned barge. She could easily fall at the first hurdle."

The winner will be announced on Friday's final show.

The latest odds are Pete 1/5; Glyn 8/1; Nikki 20/1; Richard 66/1; any other winner 6/1.

Sorry, additional thoughts on the last show. 50 percent was a tremendous reshowing of the live show, the other 50% was of Pete and Nikki canoodling, or spooning, or whatever it is they call it. Not my favorite episode. I actually fell asleep watching it.

I'd love to find out why Bonnie was not able to come back. Davina said for legal reasons but I can't seem to find any article on what that might be. Also, what about Jonathan, the first guy evicted from the house next door? Was he not eligible?

Post by: TheCinera on August 14, 2006, 05:49:47 PM
Maybe they should have put Johnathan in for the final week instead of doing that week long twist.  And about that article about the odds, where have Aisleyne and Jennie gone for the odds?  I guess they will definitely not be winning, lol. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 14, 2006, 05:59:29 PM
Last time I checked the website Aisleyne's was at 4-1. I don't know why they didn't add her. I think Jennie was 6-1, but I don't see that.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 14, 2006, 06:49:11 PM
Personally, I think if Jennie hadn't of won that free pass, then she would have been nominated along with Imogen and Richard.  Then a double eviction would have been in store for the houseguests leaving five left this season.  I knew Aisleyne and Jennie would have had low odds for betting, they aren't the favorites.  Although, I am surprised to see Richard at the finals.  I thought he would have been evicted before Imogen was evicted. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 14, 2006, 07:27:29 PM
Yea, I was surprised by Richard staying around for as long as he has. And he's been nominated several times.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 14, 2006, 07:49:40 PM
When Lea and Richard were nominated together, I thought it was Richard to go because Lea was close to Pete.  I thought Richard was going to be evicted in the middle of the pack, and he was defintely not my pick for one to make it to the end. 

I was thinking that they would have a double eviction on the Tuesday before the finale.  That way, they could have 4 left, but that isn't going to happen.

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 15, 2006, 08:31:27 AM
You are not going to believe this, but I'm starting to root for Richard. Not only is he a Canadian (it would be cool for a foreigner to win) but he's played a good game. Despite this time where they all seem to be going a little 'off' he seems to remain constant. After the antics of Glyn and Pete turning into Petikki, I'm starting to get tired of both of them. I do love Nikki but she's too annoying to win. I would rather someone who has been in the house the entire time win, so I"m going for Richard now.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 15, 2006, 11:09:01 AM
I agree that someone who has been in the house the whole time should win.  It's only fair.  One of the boys should win because the girls haven't been in the house during the entire time.  But I don't think Richard will win.  The Public likes Pete and Glyn and one of them will win.  It's basically a toss-up in my opinion between those two.  I am starting to get tired of all these housemates too, we've been watching them for too long.  With 94 episodes and an average of 45 minutes per episode (plus eviction's bonus episode), that means that after Friday's final, we've been watching big brother for 76 hours!  That's 3 and 1/8 days worth of BBuk!  This is more time I've spent watching Big Brother ever!!

Yeah, it would be cool for a Canadian to win BBuk, but I doubt it'll happen.  BTW, I'm watching Sunday's show now. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 15, 2006, 11:20:56 AM
Oh, I agree Pete or Glyn will win I'm just pulling for Richard now. Jennie is far to new to the house, Aisleyne no one can stand and Nikki has been out of the house and complains to much.

Let me know what you think of Pete's antics. We've got tons to discuss about this show.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 16, 2006, 08:12:22 AM
I liked the show, It was a very Pete-Centic episode.  Nikki tells of her dream with Pete, Pete wins Bike Race, Pete sulks in a nightclub, and I forget what happened after he left the BB Nightclub.  My favorite part of the episode (Sunday's Episode) was where Pete won the BB Nightclub and just sat there.  Haha, after a few drinks he was partying. 

Well, I'm off to watch Monday's Episode and maybe last night's too. 
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 16, 2006, 10:05:56 AM
After he left the nightclub he climbed into that plastic decoration and ran around bumping into things and suddenly jumped into the pool destroying is expensive microphone. I couldn't believe how much he was sulking during the nightclub episode. What was with that? He must have been tired. The one time he wins something, he doesn't want it. He should have been able to invite someone. Him and Nikki would have had a great time. Glyn by himself would have had a ball, but probably would have passed out after a few drinks. LOL
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 16, 2006, 10:36:55 AM
Now I remember, I guess I was more focused on talking to a few friends online than the show.  I was more listening than watching.  But I do remember seeing him jump into the pool and getting busted by BB in the DR.  Poor Pete.  He should have brought in Nikki, what fun is a NightClub if you can't dance with others?  And Glyn would have been throwing up all over the DR chair if he won.  I wish he won it instead, but watching Pete sulk was entertaining enough.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 16, 2006, 10:50:01 AM
Yes, Pete's sulk was funny but he came down a few notches in my book because of that.
If Glyn hadn't fallen off his bike, he would have won.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 17, 2006, 08:55:28 AM
I thought Glyn's time was faster than Pete's, even without all the time deductions he had.  If I recall correctly, Pete had 1:34 and Glyn had 1:04 (then down to :34 after time deductions).

I've seen most of the finale, I'm down to Glyn and Pete now. I know Sezer and Dawn wouldn't be on it. Sezer is still dealiing with 'legal' issues and with Dawny saying BBUK kidnapped her and making a big stink, I didn't expect to see her either.

That would be neat. It was a great season. I just there were fewer shows to watch. Again, I think we could do without weekend episodes, but it's still good. It was a nice ride while it lasted. I'll be considering watching next year, still not sure yet. I think I'll watch the first episode and see if that grabs me.

I LOVE TO BED THE BAD BOYS
Big Brother winner's shock admission over housemate EXCLUSIVE AISLEYNE'S LUST
By Alice Walker And Caroline Waterston

***Y Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace has told of her lust for gangsters - and how she bedded badboy boxer Iron Mike Tyson.

Aisleyne, 27, opened her heart to The People after finishing 3rd in Big Brother on Friday.

The saucy blonde calls herself the "Ghetto Queen" after turning her back on a posh upbringing to mix with with thugs and drug dealers.

And she admitted she just cannot get enough ***, saying: "I'd do it every day of the week if I could. And I have a weakness for bad boys - I can't help it."

Two of Aisleyne's hardmen former lovers are now behind bars.

Noel Barnes got life for stabbing a drug dealer to death and Curtis Davis is doing eight years for trying to shoot his way into Aisleyne's block of flats with a pistol.

She met Barnes when she was looking for work as a pole dancer and auditioned in front of him.

They went to a hotel room together - and stayed for two days.

Aisleyne, BB's top girl contestant, said: "We had *** in every position imaginable. We even did it on an open window ledge. I was smoking a lot of cannabis. It made me so randy, I was desperate for ***." Aisleyne dated Barnes for two years before moving on to Davis, to whom she got engaged.

She still wears the engagement ring and told a pal: "There's still a lot of pain there. I like to wear the ring Curtis gave me."

But now she is desperate to see her boxing lover Tyson again. She giggled: "I can't wait. He's gorgeous. I'm smitten."

They met during Tyson's recent UK speaking tour. Aisleyne recalled: "Mike asked me to join him for several nights. He told me I was the most beautiful woman he'd met."

She also told of the heartache she hid from housemates - a nine-year rift with her mum Sophia.

They only live a mile apart in London but rarely meet. She said: "When I was 18 I rebelled and hung out with a crowd she didn't approve of."

When Aisleyne traced her father Stephen, who left when she was a baby, the rift deepened.

She added sadly: "We don't have much of a relationship."

Wow.  Aisleyne knew Mike Tyson.  How cool...and wierd.  And the part about her doing it in ever position, I didn't need to know that. 

I'll be watching next season too, and will most likely be watching it all the way through again.  I want the weekend episodes out too, but I don't care, I loved the Big Brother UK roller-coaster ride.

It's just too much at times. You miss one day and suddenly you are hours behind. LOL

Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 21, 2006, 12:50:43 PM
lol, yeah keeping up with BBuk is hard work, but worth it.  Pete's vision is very wierd, I don't know much of the details, but I guess it came true.  I don't see why he mentioned it earlier, thats what I find most wierd about it.  And Aisleyne was the top girl in the season, I'm shocked too.  I didn't imagine Nikki to go 5th!  I knew that Jennie would be first out, then Aisleyne 5th.  Rich-4th, Niki-3rd, etc etc.  That was my prediction, but I don't care.

James on BBusa was just talking about Dawn and her secret code on the Live Feeds a few minutes ago.  he didn't mention her name, but he did talk about how she got kicked off.

Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 22, 2006, 10:17:24 AM
I say we make Rob and Trevor watch Season8 of BBuk and they could advertise it on the Podcast.  You know, they could say something like this, "Missing Big Brother USA.  Watch Big Brother UK, episodes available online and it starts months before the USA version."

I would love to see them tie in both series together, but how?  Swap two houseguests?  Make the UK HGs interact with the USA HGs.  That way they can commincate with the outside world, but they are both stuck in the same position.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 22, 2006, 10:27:01 AM
That would be cool. Or during the time both shows are on, fly one housemate from each house to the other house. You know, private lmo and planes would have to be used to keep them from the media, but it would be neat to tie in the two franchises. Can you imagine one oft he housemates from the US brought to the UK and told they can not talk to the others about nominations? How would Will handle that? Or take one from the UK and move them here. I can see Nikki having fun with that. Give them both a week free immunity,then ship them back. Just for fun.

Nikki on slop would be class-A entertainment.  She would freak out.  Batter tantrums than she had this season.  I would like to see her in BBusa 8.  That would be a good twist.  And make Nikki play the game.

Susie would, she could have Tea and slop, and wake up all the HGs early for us Live feeders.  I would like to see Susie on BBusa, even if i hated her in the UK show.  Shahbaz should go on the USA version too.  He's a great character.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on August 22, 2006, 08:41:46 PM
Yea, and the producers wouldn't let Shabaz get locked out of the house. I think BBUS would put a stop to that sooner than the UK version.

I think everyone would be too weirded out by Sam on the BBUS, and I think they wouldn't 'get' Pete. Mikey would do great on BBUS as would Grace, Imogen Jennie, Glyn and a few others. How well do you think Aisleyne would do? Ais e LEEEEEN!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 22, 2006, 09:48:56 PM
Yeah, the USA BB is more liberal than the UK version.  I think Richard would do the best on the USA version.  He's a player, and so is Aisleyne.  Aisleyne is the UK version of Janelle.  Smart, funny, cute, blonde, manipulative, and they both made it to third place.  Aisleyne would do good in the USA Game.

Yea, I forgot about Richard. He would do good. So, who else would do badly on the US version?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on August 28, 2006, 04:08:50 PM
Dawn, Lea, Nikki, and Bonnie would do badly.

How would Grace do?  I think she'd be excellent in the USA game.

I'm not sure about Dawn. She could be as sneaky as she'd want to be and might get away with it. I'm still trying to figure out why she went onto the UK version at all.

Post by: TheCinera on August 29, 2006, 09:40:33 PM
She's like Karen (BB5 USA).  A reality show contestant but didn't want to be associated with the television genre.  I think she was only there to win the grand prize, not make friends or become famous.  She doesn't look or act like the type that wants to go on a reality show just to get her 15 minutes of fame.

I'm watching Saturday's Episode, and I saw the Eviction Interview today.  I would like to catch up totally today so I can focus more on the USA Live Feeds. 

What do you think about the Prison task and the secret hide-out?  I loved it and how they have to keep it secret.


What time and channel are you watching this on? ???

You get it online through Torrents.  It only airs in the UK and isn't shown on TV in the USA, so we have to download them online.

Yeah, it's definitely worth checking out...even if you're a fan of Big Brother.  This show is much better to watch than the USA version, and I will be watching next season, if they have one.

Haha, I was thinking, "What would happen if her water broke on TV?"  I bet they had the other two hosts on Stand-By during the last few weeks just in case it did. 

With the success of it this year, I bet they will renew it too.  I can't wait to see who goes into the house next year, BBuk has very great and memorable characters.

That would be hard to predict what the sign would be, especially since the cast won't be released until May.  I don't think I'd want to go to a live show because it's too crowded.  I'm not the type of person that goes to concerts with crowds of people, I guess.

By the way, Nikki's show 'Princess Nikki' was on Channel 4 last night and the torrent is available now.  I'm downloading it now.

Thanks for the info. I will have to download it.

As for the sign, so many people just print out dumb signs, not aways about one of the housemates. It was said sort of tongue in cheek. :)
If you get a chance to watch it, let me know how it is.

I'm having trouble downloading the torrent.  I wonder if they're doing maintenence on them today because I noted the Seeds and Leachs haven't changed for hours (usually they do).  I haven't been able to get the torrent yet, it's wierd because I've tried downloading other things (like programs) and they work fine.  But a 15.6kb download isn't even connecting.  I hope I don't have a virus on here or else that'll be bad. 

You could make a sign saying, "Davina, where's the baby?" or "Bring back Shahbaz".  Okay...I'd put up that last sign lol.

Pete won't show up on the first episode because Nikki said when she was in The House Next Door that they started filming the show durig the bb season.  They probably are still dating, but won't last too long now they are out of the house.

That was one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. It's everything you would expect!

Now for a spoiler on what the show was about.








Today's theme was fish.
The frist day she worked on a fishing trauler. Best line from that.
She calls it a day early and goes to the hotel. She thinks it's the worst place she's ever seen and tells the manager that. She tells him she could run a hotel better and he offers to sell the place to her. LOL
The second day she works in a fish and chips shop. She must clean the grease from the day before and do some cooking.
Does Nikki get right to it? Of course not, first she needs her bottled water!

Next week - Nikki is a roady in a rock n roll band.

Could it be a Big Brother for Davina's daughters?
By LUCY BALLINGER Last updated at 08:27am on 12th September 2006
(http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2006/09/davinaBIG120906_228x293.jpg)

Davina is now just days away from giving birth to her third child.

She once proudly wore a T-shirt boasting 'Big Mutha', and yesterday Davina McCall certainly looked it.

In these pictures it is obvious the presenter's third child is due any day now, and the strain of pregnancy shows.

As she got into a car near her home yesterday the 38-year-old had her hair scraped back in a makeshift bun and wore no make-up.

She was wearing a green maternity T-shirt with the word 'Sunshine' on it and a long black skirt which clung tightly to her massive bump. A multicoloured bag covered with cartoons was slung over her shoulder.

The Big Brother presenter was also sporting a pair of bright pink Crocs clogs - the latest fashion must-have which other celebrities including Desperate Housewives star Terri Hatcher have been snapped wearing.

In April Miss McCall confirmed rumours she was expecting her third child. She made the announcement the day before the BBC announced her prime-time chatshow would not be given a second series.

At the time she said: 'I balloon when I'm pregnant - or it's what people politely call "blooming".'

Although her spokesman last night refused to confirm the exact date Miss McCall fell pregnant, she is believed to be overdue.

The spokesman said: "The baby is due fairly soon."

Miss McCall has not worked since the reality television show she hosts every year ended last month when Tourette's syndrome sufferer Pete Bennett was crowned the seventh winner.

She has two daughters with husband Pet Rescue presenter Matthew Robertson.

After her last pregnancy she worked hard to lose the excess two stone she had gained during the pregnancy. She embarked on an intensive diet and exercise programme which helped the weight drop off.

But at the Bafta awards ceremony last year she appeared painfully thin with a drawn face and jutting hip bones.

Big Brother draw broke ad rules

Nestle, Channel 4 and Endemol failed to have an independent observer present when a winning number was picked, according to the Advertising Standards Authority

Big Brother draw broke ad rules
4.07, Tue Sep 12 2006

(http://www.itv.com/news/storyb8899a05ee42b0779180c53f7e76f727_160x120.jpg)

Big Brother's Golden Ticket draw to select a new housemate breached prize promotion rules, industry watchdogs have announced.

Nestle, Channel 4 and Endemol failed to have an independent observer present when a winning number was picked, according to the Advertising Standards Authority.

Officials launched an investigation after 11 viewers complained about the way model Susie Verrico won her place in the house.

The Golden Ticket promotion involved 100 tickets being hidden inside KitKat bars.

A live lottery-style draw was then broadcast in which one ticketholder's number was picked.

Some viewers thought the draw was rigged and 43-year-old Susie had been pre-selected as winner.

The ASA has criticised Nestle, Channel 4 and Endemol for failing to ensure an independent observer was present immediately before and during the live draw.

The ASA ruling said: "We investigated whether the promotion was conducted under the supervision of an independent observer.

"On this point, the promotion breached the Committee of Advertising Practice Code clause 35.7 (prize promotions)."

It told the competition's promoters to ensure competitions complied with the code in future.

The ASA rejected complaints from viewers who thought the ball numbers were rigged.

An independent observer had signed a check-sheet proving that 34 numbered balls had entered the draw.

Slow-motion footage showed the winning ball was "undoubtedly" Susie Verrico's winning number 14, the ASA found.

In a joint response Nestle, Channel 4 and Endemol said an observer was not present during the draw because Big Brother rules prevented outsiders coming into contact with housemates.

They said the draw was carried out in the presence of 10 housemates under continuous monitoring by a production team while watched live by five million viewers.

Now that I've got my feet wet, I'm more interested in it. Also, I signed up for information as the show is about to begin again so next season I should be able to keep up with it. I'd love to find a bigger audience if I write my articles on it again, otherwise I'm not sure if I'll do the recaps.

Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on September 13, 2006, 10:23:08 AM
I had more people checking out my BBUK articles than my BBUS articles if that's any indication. I think the hit count on several of them ran into the 1000 or 2000.
As for British slang I've pretty much figured it all out. If you have any questions, just ask. I've watched tons of British TV in my time.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on September 13, 2006, 10:35:22 AM
Wow, BBuk is most definitely more popular than BBusa.  It's better in so many ways.

And I don't have any questions yet about the slang (I do know what wankers means), but if I do have one, I'll ask.

Just curious.....how is it better?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on September 14, 2006, 09:39:48 AM
No lame characters or twists like on BBusa.  They have great twists on the Uk version.  This season, they had a house next door in which the audience voted to move in one of the houseguests into it and they met 5 brand new houseguests.  She had to evict one by one every day and the evictees would movie into Big Brother House after they got 'evicted'.  When it came to her and the last two new HGs, she had to pick one to bring with her into the BB house, and one to send out the front door, never to have a chance at the Big brother game.  The public also voted an evictee back into the house. 

They had very strong characters, like Pete (the winner) had tourettes syndrome.  Aisleyne was a ghetto princess.  Nikki was a buxom complainer.  Sam(uel) was a scottish transvestite.  Richard was a gay canadian.  And Shahbaz was incredibly flamboyant. 

The competetions were great too. They had so many that were exciting, it's hard to choose between them all.  They were much more fun to watch than the USA ones. 

If you want to start watching it next season, Jeff and I get the shows through BitTorrent.  BB8 is most likely going to start in May 2007, so we'd be glad for you to watch the season with us and join in on our conversation!
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on September 14, 2006, 09:56:19 AM
There was almost something going on every episode. I think one of my favorite challenges had to do with the milk challenge. The houseguests were told they had to keep milk in this large vat overnight. There were holes in the vat causing the milk to leak out. If the houseguests kept the milk in the vat over a certain line, they were told they would win the challenge. However, that wasn't the real challenge. The real challenge came when they called one of the housemates into the diary room to collect fresh batteries for their mics and told her the real task was sabotage. She had to sabotage the challenge without telling the others what she was doing or why. So she'd take her turn plugging holes and had to let it leak out, but not make it look like she was letting it out. It was great.

Also, I love how Big Brother is actually a character in the house. When they go to the diary room, Big Brother talks with them. I love that interaction. One week, Big Brother went on 'holiay' and the diary room was controleed by a voice messaging system. It was hilarious. Aisleyne went nuts and started pressing all the buttons on the answering system till finally a message came through she was evicted from the house. It wasn't a real eviction but a 'glitch'. She came out of the diary room crying.

Those were some of my favorite moments this past season, what about you Cinera?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on September 14, 2006, 05:17:31 PM
I have to agree, when I thought of the competitions, I immediately thought of the Milk Challenge.  I thought Imogen as a Sabotuer was great.  I also liked the slow bike race.  They had to complete two laps and the slowest person won a prize.  And I loved Pete when he won that prize.  The best part of Pete ever!!!

Remember Jeff, in the Automated BB part when Glyn kept pressing the #s 6 and 9. 
BB: "You have pressed six...nine!"
Gyln: "Sixty-Nine!"
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Texas_kimmie on September 14, 2006, 09:32:20 PM
Sounds great, was it easy to get into since obviously their customs, mannerisms, slang, and accents are different from ours? (Well, mine anyway, not sure where everyone on the board is from).
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on September 15, 2006, 08:58:34 AM
I didn't have any problems with getting into it, but then I watch a lot of UK television. For the most parts, accents aren't a big problem, though a few can be hard to understand from time to time. Bonnie of last year would say her name and it sounded like she was saying Bonna. But the other contestants had a problem with her accent also. Oddly enough, she was the first evicted.

As TheCinera mentioned, sometimes the slang is hard to follow but you pick up on it quickly. With Pete, you quickly figure out what a Wanker is and when the guys are all talking about birds, you soon realize they are talking about girls.

The series is still available for download. If you are into torrents at all, download the first episode and check it out.
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on September 15, 2006, 10:04:35 AM
I enjoyed watching Bonnie, but Gyln was definitely better to have in the rest of the game.  It would have been a whole different season if Shahbaz, Bonnie, and George survived the first week.

And I don't watch any UK shows at all (with the exception of Mr. Bean, he's hilarious and doesn't speak at all).  I found out about BBuk from a BBusa fan site.  They were talking about the BB7uk logo (attached below) and how there was a special message in it if you turned it clockwise.  No one figured it out.  After trying to figure it out, I started reading up on the contestants and decided to give it a try.  I was really glad I did cause now I love it. 

Do you know how to do torrents, Texas_Kimmie?  Cause we'd be glad to show you and hear your thoughts on the series.  It's alot of episodes to watch.  Butif you have lots of free time, then it's worth checking out.

Great News TheCinera!

Quote
TV presenter Davina McCall has given birth to a baby boy called Chester, it was revealed today.
He weighed in at a whopping 10lb 2oz.
Big Brother star McCall, 38, gave birth at her Surrey home yesterday morning with husband Matthew Robertson by her side.
Chester is a brother for Holly, four, and Tilly, two.
A spokeswoman for the star said: "Davina had a natural home birth just as she did with Holly and Tilly.
"There were no complications and everything went smoothly. Mother and baby are doing well and all the family are delighted."
All three of McCall's children were delivered by midwife Pam Wild.
McCall will be back on TV in January to host Celebrity Big Brother.

TK, a torrent is a file that super compresses video and other such files so they are easily available for download. Also, you can find many TV shows are uploaded to bittorrents. You can read more about them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent

Or to search for shows to download, check here: www.mininova.org

Not only BBUK is here, but the American Big Brother can be found here as well as many other shows.

Hope this helps.

Finally, I found an article as to what the charges on Bonnie were.

BONNIE ON BAIL OVER PIZZA THEFT CLAIMS

BONNIE Holt is on police bail while detectives investigate allegations that she ordered takeaway pizzas and did not pay for them.

The care worker was arrested and questioned by police over the claims. But cops gave Big Brother bosses the go- ahead to let Bonnie take part in the TV show after they discussed the case before she entered the house.

Bonnie came clean with the producers after she was told she had been chosen as one of the contestants -and feared she would be thrown out and have her dreams dashed.

But after talks with Channel 4 bosses, it was decided to allow the 20-year-old, of Loughborough, Leicestershire, to still appear in the show.

Yesterday, a BB spokeswoman said: "We have been in close contact with the police in relation to this matter.

"The police were made aware of our plans for Bonnie to take part in the programme and were satisfied this would not interfere with their investigation."

Advertisement
Falk AdSolution

A source close to Bonnie said: "She reckons it's all a big misunderstanding and insists she is innocent, but it does seem strange that the police have persisted with pursuing the case if they didn't think there was some evidence."

Leicestershire Police last night said they would not comment on a case in which no charges had been brought.

Bonnie's half-brother, Clyde Mactavish, 28, is serving three years' jail for dealing heroin.

First of all, Congrats to Davina!  That's a huge baby to push out, and Chester is a great name. 

Second, I guess it runs in Bonnie's family to go to Jail.  I can't believe this happened before she entered the house.  It must have sucked for her when she got evicted first.  All that work to avoid the cops for 3 months, but I get evicted week one. 

Third, I do remember that with Sezer!  Who can forget Shahbaz and Sezer's antics?

You know, I don't blame Pete for breaking up with her.  I know that BB relationships don't last too long (Erika and Boogie, Janie and Will, Drew and Diane, Lisa and Eric, Roddy and Chiara....with the exceptiong of James and Sarah), so it's no surprize for me that they're no longer a couple.  And dating Nikki, I'd lose my mind.

Pete was embarrased when one of his friends spilled some Vodka on her at a party and she essentially had a meltdown. Nikki said later on, she thought someone had spit on her. In a way, I feel sorry for Nikki also. She was brought up that way and her parents must have encouraged the behavior.

Grace attacked outside a club in central London.

When one of her friends got into an argument with some guy, Grace stepped in to try and calm things. The man hit her, (trying to hit her friend but knocked her to the ground) kicked her in the head and even burned her with a cigarette. After being admitted to the hospital, she needed eight stitches

Grace had this to say. "The guy just lashed out because I tried to stop him hurting my friend. He was an animal. I hope he is found and punished." "The doctors have said I'll be scarred for life."

BTW, the second episode of Princess Nikki was just as funny. She worked on a farm and was asked to give a cow a rectal exam. LOL
Title: More Big Brother in January

More Big Brother right around the corner!

Celebrity Big Brother Will Be Extended To Four Weeks
This years Celebrity Big Brother will be extended from three weeks to four, it has recently been announced.
The show which last year saw non-celebrity Chantelle Houghton Walk away the winner, normally runs for 21 days each January, but this year we will be treated to a months worth of weird celebrities gracing our screen each evening!
An insider said: “Those who thought the Big Brother bubble had burst have been proved wrong.
“As a result, we are going to add an extra week to Celebrity BB.”
She added: “It only started as a novelty sideshow to the summer’s main event, but George Galloway and Michael Barrymore just set it alight last winter.
“Everyone reckoned it was a shame time was up after three weeks.
“It would have sizzled for longer and so it was the logical thing to do to add an extra week.”

I don't know if I'll watch CBB because I am still unable to have torrents on my internet connection.  I tried to watch it last year and I got bored very quickly, so I stopped watching it.  Maybe I'll watch it, but I don't know if I'll be able to.

And I still haven't seen Princess Nikki yet.  According to my brother, the torrent is going wicked slow, so I may not be able to see it for a while.

Last year, they had Dennis Rodman and Tracy Bigham.  They were the only two I recognized.  They also had Pete Burns, who sung the one hit wonder, "You spin me right round".  I love that song.  I didn't really get the concept, it was too confusing for me to explain/remember.  I doubt I'll watch it this season.

And I've given up on the torrents, I think I'll just wait to use my laptop next time I go home.  I noticed that they haven't had episode 3 yet, and it should have been posted on Torrents.  Has it been canceled?

Nikki Grahame Still Pines For Pete.
Despite claims Pete has broken her heart, Nikki has confessed she still loves him. No matter how he has hurt her, she can’t switch her feelings off. Nikki was dumped by Pete publicly when he confessed to a magazine why he was sick of her. Nikki can’t understand how he can have such compassion for an insect or an animal and yet tear her apart, disregarding her feelings. She had this to say, “He’s made me feel like a piece of s**t. What upset me most is that he couldn’t tell me how he felt when we were together or what I was doing wrong. Instead, he told a magazine why he dumped me. He’s hurt me more than any guy has ever hurt me. My mum thinks I’ve been publicly humiliated.”


Pete Goes Cherry Picking
Has Pete left Nikki for an old friend? It has been reported Pete met an old friend at a party where his friend Cherry has revealed her feelings for him. It seems they had a fling before he entered the Big Brother house. Cherry’s friend told the Daily Star: “Pete and Cherry had a fling that didn’t work out. Pete loved Nikki but she pushed him too far. He thinks Cherry is wonderful.”

Post by: TheCinera on September 27, 2006, 07:40:30 PM
Poor Nikki.  I feel a little bad for her now.  She was annoying and painfully clingy to Pete.  So was Lea, and Aisleyne, and Lisa.  Although, I don't think the name Cherry is that common, and its unusual.

I saw the first episode of Princes Nikki and I must say, it's a great show.  I especially loved it when Nikki was cutting the fish and said, "Pete would kill me if he knew I did this to an animal." 

Oh yeah, and having her boss at the Chips shop being a Gordon Ramsey type, it made the episode even better!  I'm going to watch Episode 2 after my last class today.

I still haven't watched Episode 3 yet.  It takes me a few days (at least) to recover from the last one.  Today looks like a good time to watch #3.  I think #6 is on Youtube, just search around for it.  I doubt this show will make it a second season.  It's one of those shows that looked good on paper, but not on TV.

And Sprial's song "Finglas" is on iTunes.  I searched for it, and laughed when I saw it was classified under 'Hip-hop'.

Post by: Jeffrey Scott on October 30, 2006, 11:50:54 AM
Yes, but a lot of his idols are Americans. Or so it would seem, so if he's trying to imitate them, he's doing a poor job. Either way, I've heard many British people complain he's no good also. So it's not just us. Maybe in Wales? LOL Did Glyn like him?

Maybe his only fan is Michael.  I don't remember much is Gyln and Spiral got along, but he may listen to Spiral.  We could infer from Spiral that his white rapper hero could be K-Fed.  Both are distasteful rappers.

Okay, things are starting to settle down I think. American Idol is right around the corner and I need to prepare myself and start getting back into the news. So, figured I'd share a new BBUK article I discovered. Enjoy.

C4 cancels live Big Brother final

Channel 4's Big Brother final will no longer be shown live because contestants on this year's show broke rules on swearing before the watershed.
The move comes after broadcasting watchdog Ofcom upheld two complaints against Channel 4 over three separate incidents of bad language on the show.
Ofcom noted that 14% of the 6.4 million viewers on the night were children.
Channel 4 said it had undertaken "a serious review", and next year's final would be shown on a time delay.
However, the broadcaster defended its decision to broadcast this year's show live.
A separate complaint regarding Jayne Kitt was resolved
In a submission to Ofcom, it said the finalists did not pose a "significant risk", and that viewers expected to see their votes tallied in real time.
When contestants Nikki Grahame and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace did break the rules, it continued, the production team missed the incidents because of the high level of noise from crowds attending the final.
Once it became clear what had happened, however, an apology was made.
Ofcom said that, while it recognised the efforts Channel 4 had made to comply with broadcasting regulations, it was "surprising" that the channel had decided not to use a delay.
"While we accept that certain housemates may not pose a significant risk," it said, "the eviction of housemates raises tension and the possibility of extreme reactions".
Meanwhile, three complaints about swearing on the live streaming of Big Brother on the digital channel E4 were resolved.
In the incident, one of the housemates - Jayne Kitt - was heard to use two four-letter swear words before the watershed.
Channel 4 said the "unprecedented situation" had occurred while editors changed shift, and blamed new, more sensitive microphones for the incident.
While the breach was investigated, it said, all of Kitt's conversations were masked with birdsong.
Following the investigation, a new technical system was installed and a team of dedicated "output monitors" was appointed.
Ofcom said the broadcaster had "regularly demonstrated that it is aware of its responsibilities" and, in light of the changes it introduced, the matter could be considered resolved.

I tryed very much to watch all of Princess Nikki, but I just can't compell myself to watch the last four I had, After they were collecting dust on my computer (metaphorically speaking), I deleted them all and have totally forgot about the show.  Don't get me wrong, Nikki was entertianing, but it was only when Pete was there with her.  Without Pete, Nikki is nobody.

'Celeb Big Brother' wants Sarah Harding
Tuesday, 28th November 2006, 11:41
LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ bosses have asked Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding to name her price to appear in the show. The reality TV producers think the ***y 25-year-old – known for her partying and heavy drinking – is the perfect celebrity to *** up the show and boost ratings when it begins next January. A source told The Daily Star newspaper: “Sarah’s our dream girl. We’re working on a mix of stars for the show, but she’s the one we have set our hearts on. She could name her price.” If the feisty blonde does go into the Big Brother house she could join TV presenter John Leslie, tempestuous Bond girl Grace Jones, drag act RuPaul and former boyband member Duncan James.

This comes from the official website: http://bbuksite.net/article/bb85.html

We take a look at some of the increasing speculation. But the questions is… which rumours will prove to be true?

A fresh rumour we’ve seen is that bosses are approaching Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding for a possible stint in the house. According to The Daily Star, producers have told her to ‘name the price’ thinking that her good looks and love for partying will draw viewers. A source told the paper: “Sarah’s our dream girl. We’re working on a mix of stars for the show, but she’s the one we have set our hearts on. She could name her price.” In the past she’s been romantically linked to Calum Best and Stephen Dorff. She recently became the face of Ultimo lingerie.

If Sarah was this years good looks, then Tommy Sheridan would be this years political contestant. Jeffry Archer has been rumoured for the show, as has Boris Johnson, although he has since ruled himself out. Sheridan is different, refusing to totally deny his appearance in a radio interview. When asked by DJ if he would appear, he said: “Erm, probably not. Not because I think I’m above it - I was one of the few defenders of George Galloway when he did it last year. All I’d say is, you can’t believe everything you read about Tommy Sheridan.”

Other people rumoured to appear include former Hi-De-Hi star Su Pollard and more Most Haunted presenter Derek Acorah. He’s been rumoured to appear for a number of series now, but this could be the time he finally joins the house.

The next person to be rumoured to appear is John Leslie. The presenter was found innocent of rape charges, but has since struggled to find work. An appearence in the house could turn his fortunes around, although Michael Barrymore hasn’t found much work since he joined the house last year. Other celebrities rumoured to appear include US singer Grace Jones and drag star RuPaul.

Duncan James has been ruled out. He will be appearing in ITV1’s Dancing On Ice.

Stick with BBUK for more roundup of rumours.

Channel 4 has signed a new deal with Endemol, keeping the show on air until at least 2010. Channel 4 has apparently paid £180 million to keep the show for three more years. They sealed the rights to the show, expected to cost around £60 million for each series, after ITV expressed interest in buying the format.

However, ITV decided not make an official bid for the show, leaving the price tag considerably lower than what it may have been. The deal also includes future series of Celebrity Big Brother. The current contract was due to run out after Big Brother 8, and many speculated that ITV would swoop in and snatch the format. Simon Shaps, ITV’s director of television, apparently spoke with Endemol about buying the show, but decided not to buy the format, allowing Channel 4 to sign a new deal for the show.

Big Brother has been very valuable for Channel 4, helping push up the channel’s share and attracting a large amount of 16-34s and is now considered Channel 4’s flagship show. Reports have suggested that losing Big Brother would have been a huge blow to Channel 4.

Great news to hear the show has been renewed for the next three years! 

I can't believe that they never mentioned Hasslehoff or K-Fed in the first article.  Maybe they haven't been officially confimed yet.

The name Grace Ross and Sarah Harding have been very interesting for me to reasearch, so I decided to look them up on Wikipedia and here's what I found:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Jones
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Harding

Sarah looks like a cutie.  I think, if Sarah is going into the house, she'll go far.
===
I also searched BBuk Celeb 7 on Wiki, very interesting rumors:
"Celebrity Big Brother 7 has been confirmed to start airing in January 2007, and will run for four weeks instead of three as was the length the year before.
It has been reported that David Hasslehoff, Adam Ant, Boris Johnson, Jeffrey Archer, and Kevin Federline will appear as contestants in the show."
===
So what would make K-Fed want to go on the UK version of the show?  Me thinks he needs the extra air-time, and the break-up with Brit might have affected it too.  I wonder if he expects to make it there long, he'll be out faster than Shahbaz (only he won't quit, he'll be be voted out).

Big Bruv in bid for Brit's Fed-Ex
 
November 22, 2006
 
BRITNEY Spears’ estranged hubby Kevin Federline is being lined up for Celebrity Big Brother.

The self-styled K-Fed — restyled Fed-Ex since the split from Britney — has been offered £150,000 to take part in the Channel 4 reality show.

Producers hope the 28-year-old will perform some of his cringeworthy “raps”.

An insider said: “Kevin is hugely entertaining because he takes himself really seriously — even though no one else does.

“He’ll be great for the show because it’s all about larger-than-life characters.”

Grace Jones was a Bond girl. A View to a Kill, back in mid 80's. She also sang (mostly I think R&B) of the same time frame. She was also in a Conan movie of the early 80's. Maybe this was all just before your time, but I really recall her.

I'm not much into Bond, and I wasn't born until the late eighties, so she is definitely way before my time.  Bringing an ex-Bond Girl into the house could help promote the new one, although I'm not in Marketing, so I wouldn't know.

Bizarre rumour time: Stephen Hawking has reportedly been approached for CBB5.

According to The Sun, he has been offerred a ”substantial fee” by show producers to appear in the new series. However, a friend has said it is unlikely he will accept it. “He thought it was very funny,” a source told The Sun. “He gets wacky offers all the time and is always turning stuff down. He has a good sense of humour and might find being in the house amusing for a bit. But he would end up bored rigid.”

What will they think of next? The latest on the rumour mill is Stephen Hawkings has been approached to appear in January’s Celebrity Big Brother. Keep in mind, this is reported in the Sun, so take this news with a grain of salt. Accordingly Stephen was offered a ’substantial fee’ to appear on the show.

Now serioulsy, does anyone think Celebrity Big Brother holds any interest for him? A source told the Sun, “He thought it was very funny. He gets wacky offers all the time and is always turning stuff down. He has a good sense of humour and might find being in the house amusing for a bit. But he would end up bored rigid.”

To be honest, if Stephen Hawkings was in the Big Brother house, I know many people would be bored rigid.

Title: Whitney Houston?
Post by: Jeffrey Scott on December 04, 2006, 09:39:19 AM
The soul diva will join a host of other controversial stars in the house in January for a fee of at least £150,000 if negotiations continue to go smoothly.

Big Brother bosses believe the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer will boost ratings because of her remarkable recovery from drink and drug addiction and her divorce from Bobby Brown.

Whitney's house was repossessed last month after she failed to make her mortgage payments.

The 43-year-old’s $1.4 million Atlanta mansion was seized and auctioned on the steps of the Fulton County Courthouse.

Reports suggest that Whitney and estranged husband Bobby defaulted on mortgage payments and the five-bedroom house was put up for sale after being foreclosed by the courts.

Whitney has recently overcome an addiction to crack cocaine and filed for divorce from Bobby, her husband of 14 years, on October 16, requesting custody of the couple's daughter Bobbi Kristina, 13.

Other stars tipped to enter the Big Brother house in the New Year include Britney’s estranged husband Kevin Federline and Girls Aloud stunner Sarah Harding.

OJ Simpson had also been lined up but negotiations broke down following the recent controversy over his book ‘If I did it’ about the murder of his wife and her lover.

It seems the cast is being held secret until premier night.

LONDON - 'Celebrity Big Brother' is to return to Channel 4 and E4 in the New Year for a fifth series with speculation that housemates could include Whitney Houston and Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding.

The new series, which is being sponsored by Carphone Warehouse, returns on January 3, along with spin-off programmes 'Celebrity Big Brother's Little Brother' and 'Celebrity Big Brother's Big Brain', which will both be hosted by Dermot O'Leary, and 'Celebrity Big Brother's Big Mouth', presented by Russell Brand.

Channel 4 said fans would be able to keep up to date with the series via the Big Brother website's live streaming subscription service, live streaming on E4, email updates and chat forums.

The identity of the new housemates is a secret until launch night. Yet names connected to the fifth series include Britney Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline, who has reportedly been offered £150,000 to appear on the show.

The Sun quotes an insider on the Channel 4 show as saying: "Kevin is hugely entertaining because he takes himself really seriously -- even though no-one else does. He'll be great for the show because it's all about larger-than-life characters."

Series four of 'Celebrity Big Brother' featured former Labour MP George Galloway, who made his name with a bizarre cat impersonation in a pink leotard. The show was won last year not by a celebrity, but by Chantelle Houghton, who was introduced into the house as a fake celebrity. She went on to marry fellow contestant and Ordinary Boys singer Preston.

Previous versions of the show have been won by former Happy Monday's dancer Bez, Take That singer Mark Owen and comedian Jack Dee, who won the show's first outing.

Channel 4 said each celebrity contestant would be nominating a charity to support, with the total money raised from text vote revenue to be split equally among the housemates.

The previous series, which lasted for 18 days, attracted nearly 3m votes and a peak audience share of 6.8m for Channel 4.

This reported from the Sun. There is a page-three girl (Glamour Girl) entering the Celebrity Big Brother house.

GLAMOUR girl Leilani Dowding is poised to sign up for Celebrity Big Brother, we can reveal.

The former Page 3 beauty, 27, will join the great and the downright odd on the three-week Channel 4 series which starts on January 3. A show insider said: “Leilani is a great girl — down to earth and friendly. We’ve never had a Page 3 girl before.” Meanwhile, Big Brother commissioning editor Angela Jain has revealed her ideal housemates would include Nicole Kidman, author Salman Rushdie, Michael Jackson, Kathy Burke and Whitney Houston. Troubled singer Whitney is reported to have been offered £500,000 to star.

So it looks like Leilani is the first celebrity housemate confirmed.  I seriously doubt that Kidman or Jackson would enter the house, but you never know.  Imagine, Michael Jackson in the same house as K-Fed.  Now that's entertaning.

Keep in mind those names provied are for her "Ideal" housemates. As for this being a 'confirmed' housemate, I'd look elsewhere than the Sun for confirmation. I don't recall if I listed it, but it was reported in the Sun. Not exactly well known for being a 100% accurate newspaper. In fact, some claim it borders on tabloid. Just keep that in mind.

Now we’re getting nearer to the show, we take one of our final looks at the rumours flying around the tabloids and internet forums.

Adding to previous speculation, David Hasselhoff, who could appear in the house until the 31st of January, has shown that he definitely doesn’t have a problem with reality TV shows. His teenage daughters are set to start in their own. Taylor Ann, 16, and Hayley, 14, will be filmed for E! Entertainment in January. Is this planned to coincide with their fathers appearance in Celebrity Big Brother 5, or is it merely a co-incidence? We’ll soon find out.

The second rumour we’ve heard is that Page 3 Girl and former Celebrity Wrestling contesta Lelania Dowding will be appearing in the house. The Sun claim that the model will join the series straight from the off. A show insider told the paper Leilania is a great girl — down to earth and friendly. We’ve never had a Page 3 girl before.”

The next rumour sees another good looking woman offered a deal. This time it’s American Pie star Tara Reid. The blonde bombshell is American and we all know how bosses like their American celebrities. Other rumoured additions include shamed Miss Great Britan Daniell Lloyd, who was stripped of the title after it emerged she was seeing one of the judges. And BB executive producer Angela Jain has revealed that her dream contestant would be Whitney Houston - who has reportedly been offered a whopping £500,000 and would become the highest paid celebrity if she accepts.

And finally, Scottish MP Tommy Sheridan has turned down a £100,000 offer to appear. He says he turned the deal down because bosses couldn’t guaruntee that his political beliefs would be given air time. He told the Daily Record: “I’m definitely not doing Celebrity Big Brother. They made a very generous offer but there were no guarantees of communicating my political ideas. Therefore, it was not right at this time. At first, I ruled it out completely. But they kept coming back upping the offer. People were saying to me, ‘Don’t rule it out, think about it’. This is not a decision on principle but, on balance, it’s not right now.”

Interview with Sam:

Our interview with Sam from BB7!
Published by Adam on Saturday, 9 December 2006 1:32 PM Tags: BB7, cbb5, celebrity big brother, channel 4, charity, interview, sam, site news.

BB7's Sam Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to have the chance to interview Sam from BB7. Sam entered the BB7 house on Day 12, but was evicted 11 days later.

What made you apply to be on BB7?
It was an accident, as I had stood in the wrong queue.

What was the highlight of your BB experience and why?
Getting to be part of something special, and meeting an array of interesting characters.

What was the lowlight of your BB experience and why?
When you find out friends have betrayed your trust and sold stories. You know who your real friends are, put it that way.

If you could do it all again, would you?
Most certainly, yes, but I would have gone in the first week rather than one week later, as its always difficult to try an adapt to a group that has already formed. It makes you feel like an outsider.

Are you looking forward to Celebrity Big Brother returning this January?
It should be good.

Which celebrities would you love to see in the BB house?
Whitney Houston!

What have you been up to since appearing on BB?
I’ve been working on my Documentary for BBC THREE, about myself and others going through the same situation as myself (identity wise), personal appearances, mainly in Scotland, Ireland, and parts of England, and attending different film premieres and celebrity parties. Of course, along with the masses of time I spend for different Charity causes.

David Scwhimmer latest rumoured housemate

As well as former Friends star David, Hollywood A-Lister Dustin Hoffman has also been rumoured, as well as the considerably less famous Rachel Stevens, whose former fiancée Jeremy Edwards appeared in the third series of Celebrity Big Brother.

“There’s been a lot of brainstorming going on this year, and Channel 4 want the next series to have a celebrity glam factor, something that the last series lacked,” said an insider.

“They’re looking for some major names and David Schwimmer is high on the list as well as Dustin Hoffman and Jackie Mason. Channel 4 is serious about making this series the best yet.”

With the show literally just weeks away, Channel 4 will be hoping to make this series the best one yet, especially after the success of the fourth series earlier this year. However, the papers have been known to name A-Listers in the past, and these rumours very rarely come true, so we at BBUK will be treating this one with a pinch of salt.

'Celeb Big Brother' signs up Dirk Benedict?

Tuesday, 12th December 2006, 11:58
LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Former 'A-Team' star Dirk Benedict has reportedly signed up to appear on the next 'Celebrity Big Brother'. Producers hope Benedict, who played master of disguise Face in the 80s hit show, will attract more viewers to the reality TV show which kicks off in the New Year. A source at Channel 4 revealed: "Getting one of the A-Team is a major coup for us." Former 'Baywatch' star David Hasselhoff has also reportedly signed up to appear on the show. TV bosses are said to have agreed to pay Hasselhoff the most expensive salary in the show's history, a record £200,000 fee. Bosses have also reportedly approached Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding - known for her partying and heavy drinking - as they think she will be the perfect celebrity to *** up the show. The feisty blonde could join TV presenter John Leslie, Bond girl Grace Jones, Whitney Houston and former Blue singer Duncan James. The new series of 'Celebrity Big Brother' begins in January.

Keep in mind, this paper is indicating David Hasselhoff has signed and in another source he has already denied he will be able to make it. So, make of this what you will. Personally, I love when a plan comes together.

CBB5 Executive Producers Interview
Published by Andrew on Thursday, 7 December 2006 6:10 PM Tags: big brother 9, cbb5, celebrity big brother, Claire ODonohoe, interview, Paul Osborne.

Channel 4A new official interview with producers Paul Osborne and Claire O’Donohoe has been released, read on for the transcript in full.

What’s going to be different about this year’s Celebrity Big Brother?
Well, we can’t go into detail because that would spoil the surprise but there will be more celebrities than ever before, more twists, more turns and we’re hoping it’ll be the biggest and best series yet.

What’s the house like – is it still smaller than ever? Is there any sauna or spa to keep the celebs warm?
As the house was designed with an inside/outside theme in the summer we’ve had to remodel it quite a bit for the winter weather (no-one wants to eat outside in January!). But it is essentially the same house, bold and ornate - and there will still be nowhere to hide. You’ll have to wait until launch night to see what any new features might be…

Is there a particular strategy you’re using to cast this year’s housemates? Are you hoping for another George Galloway or Pete Burns or Michael Barrymore?
There is no real strategy as such – the casting process is similar in most ways to the normal Big Brother, in that we’re looking for the most diverse and fascinating housemates as possible who will be able to entertain the nation in January.

Which of last year’s celebrities surprised you most, in terms of their experience in the house?
One of the biggest surprises was, in hindsight, the Preston/Chantelle romance. Who knew that there would ever be love in the Celebrity Big Brother House?

What do you ask the celebrities when you go to meet them? How can you tell if they are suitable for the show? Is it similar to recruiting ‘civilian’ housemates?
In many ways it is a very similar process – we ask similar questions and we make sure that any prospective celebrities have thought about it very carefully. The main difference is that we don’t have tens of thousands of celebrities applying to take part!

How far are you casting the net – in terms of nationalities or professions?
We always aim to create as diverse a cast as possible and, as has been the case in the past, we don’t stop at UK celebrities… but you’ll have to wait and see who gets out of the car on launch night.

How much information do you give the celebrities about the show? Some, like Jackie Stallone, can seem a little ‘confused’ about the Big Brother rules.
The celebrity housemates are provided with a full set of Big Brother rules well in advance of entering the house. Any confusion would only arise if they didn’t read them!

Do you think the celebrities you’re talking to are getting wise to the Big Brother game and will really play along?
The viewers are always very astute – they don’t let housemates get away with not playing the game or being themselves. Also, after seven series of the summer version, Big Brother still finds ways to surprise and shock the housemates. Celebrities are no different…

How do you keep the housemates’ identities secret before they go in?
Only a select group of people know the identities of the celebrity housemates and the housemates themselves are asked to keep it secret.

Chantelle as a non-celebrity housemate was a fantastic twist last year. How are you going to top it?
That would be telling…

The basic draw to Big Brother is the same as basis as "Survivor" or "The Amamzing Race".  It's a reality show where we watch people interact and play a game.  Big Brother gives you the opportunity to pay money and watch the contestants discuss the game LIVE through the internet.  That ability is what makes Big Brother unique.  All we see in the house is crazy things people do, and what they really talk about.  It's a huge social experiment that puts a spin on the novel "1984".

I would be surprised to see  Dustin Hoffman join the Celebrity BB group as it's not something he would need for his career.  Yet, I hear Hoffman enjoys messing with people's heads and he would surely be a colorful addition.  Frankly, I wouldn't mind watching a BB show if it was all men instead of a mixed group.  The energy would be totally different and I have always wondered how guys would interact with each other when there are no babes around or likely to be.

Maybe that's when "The House next Door" twist will come in.  Two houses, separated by gender, especially celebrities.  Would make for a great season.

Then there is the Shehbhaz twist. Each group must put up with Shabhaz and are not allowed to kick him out. LOL

How about the Susie twist? Susie will enter the house and make tea for everyone.  Last person not to go crazy will be immune from nominations for the week.

Actually, I like the twist coming up where the first person who has enough courage to approach Nikki and let her know there will be no bottled water, they will be immune.

More HG news:

CBB producers are confident of signing ex-Darkness singer Justin Hawkins, according to latest reports.
The singer has not yet signed on the dotted line, but bosses are confident they can strike a deal soon.
Justin left The Darkness in October after a month-long alcohol and drugs addiction treatment programme in The Priory.

I think I heard about that too.  Geez, how many celebs have been rumored to be on the show?  At least 20, I know that.

That's why people need to watch at least the first show. You never know who may turn up. Plus, Davina will be there. :)

I can't wait to see Davina.  She's much more entertaining than the Chenbot

Can I make a suggestion? why not move this topic to Big Brother? Thats where most people looking for any sort of BB news would look right?

Good idea, Puddin!  Now, how do you do that?
Title: Re: Big Brother UK Version
Post by: TheCinera on December 16, 2006, 06:32:48 PM
Actually, I have a better idea.  Shall I make a new topic about Celebrity Big Brother UK in the Big Brother section?

Thanks, Starlet.  Welcome to the forum.  Do you also watch Big Brother UK?  If so, then we'd enjoy talking to you about it in May when it comes back!

By the way, I got Aisleyne:

Oh god, you don't want to be Aisleyne - my least favourite HM of all time!

Yes, Aisleyne was awful. But, I hated Sam more. Just annoyed me. Let's see who I get.

I'd like to have Shahbaz.  He was one of my favorites.

I didn't mind Aisleyne.  In fact, I'm glad I got her in the quiz.

I just found her annoying. Shabhaz was fun to watch, but so was Nikki. And they are both annoying at the same time.

They were all annoying in their own annoying ways.  :lol:

Very true. I'm anxious to see this years. I'm currently thinking of putting last years on DVD. I wonder how many I can fit onto a DVD.

For me, I get an average of Four 42min episodes per Video DVD.  I know Big Brother 2006 had nearly 86 daily shows, and then add the extra eviction shows.  Expect to burn about 22 DVDs.

That would be much less if it was a Data DVD, which I think would be your best bet.  I'd like to watch the season again, but I'm afraid I don't have that much time on my hands.

I was thinking of saving it for my brother, and I do have a 4GB data cd. So I may opt for that. I did just buy a DVD CD/RW so I may watch it on my TV this time. We'll see how it goes.
