To think Mel B is an idiot.

Watching Big Fat Quiz of the Year. At first I thought she just had a sense of humour failure, but as it goes on it would appear most of the jokes are just going above her head and she does not understand them as she is thick.
Whoever cast her on this show should get sacked. Even Noel Fielding is funnier than her. Frankie Boyle would have been best.

I think this was filmed around the big husband issue so I kind of forgive her given she is normally very funny. You can see her left eye is a bit odd looking too.

No you anbu. I am sat here watching it and thinking the exact same thing! I very much doubt she has any awareness of who any of the other people on there are. She is just coming across as aggressive and sucking the fun out of it all. I find myself furrowing my brow after everything she says. Usually get a laugh out of this programme too

I agree with you OP... It made for awkward viewing.

Really out of place on a comedy show.

Ii think it is a repeat. I actually can't really look at it again. She is quite rude I think

I veered between thinking she was playing it 'straight' in an attempt to be funny, and thinking she was one if the rudest people I'd ever seen on TV.

Surely she's more 'fun' than that odd behaviour would suggest?

Plus the warmth and wit of Sarah Millican only served to highlight what a sour baggage she was being.

molyholy Mon 29-Dec-14 22:35:04

Yes cheese. I also notice the eye thing and was wondering when it was filmed. But I am actually surprised she is on this. Not their usual 'type' of panel member

Panzee Mon 29-Dec-14 22:35:21

It gets better. I think she was nervous. All the other contestants and the host are comedians.

RoastingYourChestnutsHurtsAlot Mon 29-Dec-14 22:36:06

She should have called in sick and saved herself the embarrassment

JavelinArse Mon 29-Dec-14 22:39:42

I'm watching now, it is very cringey. She comes across as being out of her depth and not very witty at all. Bizarre choice for the programme

Pico2 Mon 29-Dec-14 22:43:18

It gets better because they cut her out of a lot of the second half or so.

WorraLiberty Mon 29-Dec-14 22:44:55

Even if it was filmed at the time of her husband issues

It's completely unprofessional to turn up to a comedy quiz with a face like a bag of smashed crabs.

She wouldn't get away with being that miserable in any other public facing job.

It's cringeworthy to watch.

She seemed a good laugh on Alan Carr. Was it ever confirmed the DV?

RedTinsel Mon 29-Dec-14 22:46:42

She looks a bit lost and bewildered and she's not really getting the joke.
But She doesn't live in the UK so no surprise she doesn't know who they are or what they're talking about.

That said, she's quite rude.

BastardGoDarkly Mon 29-Dec-14 22:48:00

Bag of smashed crabs fgrin

RedTinsel Mon 29-Dec-14 22:48:15

She denies DV as does her husband.

BastardGoDarkly Mon 29-Dec-14 22:50:26

I think she just feels really out of depth too, and can't relax.

WoodenGo Mon 29-Dec-14 22:51:52

Not watching it, but she can't be worse than Gabby Logan a year or two ago, surely. Poor old Gabby seemed to think she was in a pub quiz and was eager to correctly answer all the questions. Do these people watch these shows before they agree to appear? (Also recall Ann Widdecombe having no idea on HIGNFY. Cringe making.)

raltheraffe Mon 29-Dec-14 22:53:48

Frankie Boyle should have done it.
At least we do not have the annoying Brand/Fielding pair they normally put on.

RedButtonhole Mon 29-Dec-14 22:56:43

Ugh, is she on it? I'm just about to watch on plus one.

I can't stand her at the best of times, far.too bolshy and shouty.

Salmotrutta Mon 29-Dec-14 22:57:45

Mel B is always rude and brash (I should point out that I didn't see this programme).

I would also never accuse her of having a sense of humour.

Gruntfuttock Mon 29-Dec-14 22:58:23

Isn't being like that just her 'thing'? Hence being called Scary Spice? Maybe she's not capable of being pleasant.

QueenInTheNorth Mon 29-Dec-14 22:59:31

She was awful! killed the program.

vestandknickers Mon 29-Dec-14 23:01:08

She is an idiot.

My seven year old understands that it is not funny just to be rude to people.

Who ever thought she would be a good choice?
