Just switched on.....

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 21:05:21

Baffled so far

butisthismyname Mon 01-Oct-12 21:05:46

me too...preparing to be a bit confused so far

Jellykat Mon 01-Oct-12 21:11:17

Am watching too..

KatzGold Mon 01-Oct-12 21:12:38

snap

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 21:13:43

Eh? Why Paddy McGuiness?

13 minutes in-still a bit baffled.

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 21:21:33

Right so they are going to employ some people then. I think.

Gordon Ramsay is such a knob isn't he?

TheAngelshavetheOod Mon 01-Oct-12 21:24:28

Dh & I are watching. Neither of us get it.

KatzGold Mon 01-Oct-12 21:28:00

Did that girl really not know what to do?

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 21:35:26

It's not exactly riveting is it? I understand it's for charity? How about not make the programme and just give the money to charity instead? confused

According to Heat mag - Gordy and Mary are running a team of unemployed youngsters in a hotel, with the help of Gok, Phil and Kirsty, Hilary Devey etc...The challenge is to make loads of ££s for employment charities.

Did i miss the bit where the programme makers explained that?

Its all very disjointed..

Did Mary seriously just offer that one of her cleaning staff would clean their room in sexy underwear!!!!!!

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 21:58:43

OMG what is Kim doing to Dr Christian? shock

TheAngelshavetheOod Mon 01-Oct-12 22:02:14

I'm still not getting it.

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 22:04:32

How long does it go on for? I really don't understand.

KatzGold Mon 01-Oct-12 22:05:07

Turned it off, pile of rubbish, if the premise was to train unemployed people in hospitality skills and raise some cash for unemployment charities to boot then great - but this just seems like yet another reality tv show with a cast of wannabes.

Jellykat Mon 01-Oct-12 22:07:08

Finishes at 10.40, and on all week Sparkling.

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 22:11:31

Blimey Jelly it's an endurance watch then. sad

DH has just wandered in and asked what it's all about. Erm......

Jellykat Mon 01-Oct-12 22:17:33

Oddest programme aye Sparkling?.. Too much going on, and yet nothing confused

Mind you Hilary seems a larf..

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Oct-12 22:22:57

It's one of those programmes that looks like it could have been quite good if it wasn't like it was IYSWIM.

Yes, loads happening but just WTF really. grin

YeahBuddy Mon 01-Oct-12 22:28:34

I am enduring it, but only because my mums friend will be on it tomorrow (I think). She is a creative dog groomer and has taken my mums poodle to turn him into some kind of character grin
But the whole thing is a bit confusing...

Jellykat Mon 01-Oct-12 22:31:39

Ahh, blonde receptionist is a sweet girl, poor lamb.. sad

I watched for a bit, sadly had to conclude it was merely exploiting desperate young people by expecting them to learn perfection in one day, with the inevitable failure that results, and also giving a showcase for various celebs to show off. I liked Phil, though. He too was training from scratch.

I watched about ten mins and changed it when all the sob story lot got employed, the one with M.S or was it M.E the alcoholic etc, it's like x factor Que the heart warming moments with accompanying music and some fake tears about how well they are doing when they've had it soooooooo hard etc.

Bollocks to it, it's just more American style unreality tv trash.

I lasted about 5 minutes then watched the news on the other side!
