I caught my first slice of BB this morning and was gobsmacked at how utterly stupid this lot were.

On this evidence I'd say that all schools are failing!

I see nobody agree's with me then..

I can't be bothered with it at all. They all struck me as a lot of attention seeking typecasts who had been deliberately selected for "entertainment value" but were probably too thick to see it.

I saw a couple of minutes the other night and thought exactly the same thing. There doesn't seem to be an over-abundance of brain cells, does there!

(that's my saskia impression)

you are right they are all so thick it is embarressing if this represents today's youth I can't watch it anymore as they are all just wannabes looking for a job on cable tv!

Why is there nobody on this site that will admit to doing things like eating sweets and watching BB. Is all not PC enough or is it just me. I watched it tonight and loved every minute of it!

stupid people on big brother is news?

they do seem to have a larger than normal proportion of silly names this year though. maxwell? science? I haven't watched it, but all the names sound silly.

fsmail - i don't "admit" to watching bb because I don't watch it. pc is nothing to do with it.

Ohhh, very philosophical Kama. You have a point but I think it's wasted on these lot.

Fsmail, I eat sweets! Lots of them! And Germaine Greer thought BB was interesting enough to go on it. At the risk of sounding like a total knob though, it was only interesting for me then when she was there. People with brains, experience and something to talk about and clash about - ohhh drama! ..Well, it had alot of promise anyway

Total trash but compelling viewing - there are some brains cells, though admittedly not many.

I find it fascinating watching the social dynamics and how the groups change and the power switches over the weeks. But also love the rows and totally trashy behaviour, also it is has poignant moments like Saskia looks after her fumbles with Maxwell, she looks disappointed and sad.

I think that this year the producers specifically chose unsympathetic characters to make it more interesting - and it's worked, it's far more compelling viewing when you are able to unapolagetically dislike most of the contestants

But these people think doors are opening for them - they're just slamming shut...?

I have always loved bb and had the mickey taken out of me for years. yet this year I cant get into it, I dont mind if I miss it, this has never happened in previous years. Ive only watched 2 evictions this year, in previous years this would have been heard of. Still watching hoping to get addicted again.
