Would you ever go on a show like Come Dine With Me?

I wouldn't!

Imagine having to endure those dinners - and other people's ideas of "entertainment".

I never watch it much. Not me. Oh no.

Salmotrutta Wed 30-Jul-14 19:09:26

I should add that not many people would like to endure one of my dinners either grin

EatShitDerek Wed 30-Jul-14 19:10:07

Not at all. I do watch them though when I go to my mums.

The guy who does the voice over thing is the best bit

Coconutty Wed 30-Jul-14 19:10:36

No, they are all gobshites.

SirChenjin Wed 30-Jul-14 19:10:39

No - it's a horrible programme. I'd never go on a programme which involves one-upmanship or being vile to others in the name of 'entertainment'

JammyDodger1 Wed 30-Jul-14 19:11:12

My mate did, she was drunk as a skunk for a week grin

SillyBlueHat Wed 30-Jul-14 19:11:45

It was so much better in the 'old' days when it wasn't so obviously staged

BeachyKeen Wed 30-Jul-14 19:12:07

I don't understand why everybody snoops on the show! If you are a guest at someone's house, you don't go rooting through their bedroom drawers!

CatKisser Wed 30-Jul-14 19:12:08

No because if I ended up having to host for some rude fuckwit who wouldn't try my food I might just clout them with my best le creuset pot!
Also the idea of people rummaging through my drawers give me cold swears.

Never ever ever.

I am not remotely competitive and the thought of being filmed, edited and scrutinised in that way would be a nightmare for me.

I do enjoy watching people digging holes for themselves, though - and being complete arses. The food is merely a distraction grin

BeachyKeen Wed 30-Jul-14 19:14:24

I have run a cafe, and hosted loads of events and dinners,grin so that part doesn't throw me. But like fuck is someone I don't know going to "have a wee peek" in my closets!shock

Salmotrutta Wed 30-Jul-14 19:15:02

The thought of someone rooting through my knicker drawer gives me cold sweats.

I have Granny pants because, well, I'm a granny

NatashaBee Wed 30-Jul-14 19:15:31

I would hide dildos stuff in all my cupboards for the other contestants to find when they were nosing around.

Salmotrutta Wed 30-Jul-14 19:15:57

Or cold swears too CatKisser grin

Salmotrutta Wed 30-Jul-14 19:18:05

Actually, if someone opened some of my cupboards they'd most likely be killed by the resulting avalanche.

And serve them right too, the nosey Parkers.

Maybe I should go on it to rid the world of a few snoopers?

CatKisser Wed 30-Jul-14 19:18:43

Oops! grin
The annoying thing is, if I had enough mates who liked cooking, I'd LOVE to do a come dine with me just as a casual thing!

Middleagedmotheroftwo Wed 30-Jul-14 19:19:00

They will be filming in our area soon. We had a flyer through the door looking for volunteers. They are looking for couples. DH wants to do it blush

CatKisser Wed 30-Jul-14 19:19:50

Oh no! The couples one is DREADFUL. So smug and twee! Don't do it!!

mychildrenarebarmy Wed 30-Jul-14 19:22:35

No way. There was a Mumsnetter who did though and she was telling snippets about the filming during the week.

CornChips Wed 30-Jul-14 19:23:32

I'd do it. They did my area a few years back and I chickened out and I seriously regret it.

CornChips Wed 30-Jul-14 19:25:36

I would also go on 4 in a bed if my dream of having my own B&B ever comes off. [DH sits in corner rocking, head in hands]

Middleagedmotheroftwo Wed 30-Jul-14 19:34:07

No way would I do it!!!!

Salmotrutta Wed 30-Jul-14 19:34:29

Noooooo Middleagedmother grin

Salmotrutta Wed 30-Jul-14 19:34:50

Ah.

X-post!

No way. You look like a twat for a one in four, or five, chance of winning a mere £1,000. Then it's repeated, and repeated...
