Smells Like Teen Spirit

Still in confessional mode: I watch Big Brother on Channel 4 whenever it's on. I wouldn't really mind telling you that at all if this round was not as lame as it's turning out to be. What's with the producers? Have they really lost their sense of drama?

Why didn't we get an eviction on the day that Ziggy came into the house? The house was so ripe for that sort of thing. "You wanna bloke? Give up one of the females in the house!" Still, all is not lost, yet. They can still do this to bring in the next guy. That's unless they've really lost the plot and plan to leave Ziggy as the only Y chromosome presence in the house.

I'm not done yet. I have another bone to pick. Why did we only get two eviction nominations? "Pick two girls" is so timid and boring. How about, "pick the two you like most and the two you like least." That way we get some real drama...if we're lucky, even a major crisis.

So I end with a note to Endemol (on the off off chance they're reading this!): I'm available for consultation on how to make the show really interesting beyond the die-hard fans.

Well, actually, before I get off my soap box, here's a final shout out, for now: evict Shabnam, please!

From an official Channel 4 statement released today, after a true-to-form incident in the house:

"In the wake of Celebrity Big Brother we must consider the potential offence to viewers regardless of Emily's intentions and her housemates' response. The word nigger is clearly racially offensive and there was no justification for its use. We have removed Emily from the house to once again make it clear to all housemates and the viewers at home that such behaviour won't be tolerated."

Now that's reality TV!

is it a coincidence that Endemol reminds me of some tranquilizer, or better still, some laxative
