The 10th and possibly final series of UK Big Brother launches tonight and there’s a surprise in store for the latest batch of talentless, fame-baiting, dead-zones we lovingly call the “contestants.”
Basically the producers have gone with the always entertaining premise of general cruelty by stripping the Big Brother house of pretty much everything. No more fluoro couches or oversized vinyl decals of a big eye; instead, the living space is just a big empty room. They’ll even sleep on the floor like the inmates of a Thai prison.
MARK THIS DATE… for today is the day that television officially hits an entertaining low. For the next few months, most of my waking hours will be spent watching slightly handicapped people walking around an empty room. Can’t wait!!! (Seriously, I love it.)
It reminds me of a long-overlooked format I came up with once called “The piece of shit TV show that for some reason you’ll find yourself watching even though you hate it.” I’m still keen to option that if anyone’s interested. The title may need some work.
