    Why Big Brother doesn't work anymore.

    I don't know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed the first series of BB. It was genius TV. A bunch of normal people, living their lives normally, with people they don't know.

    It worked, because they didn't know what would happen afterward. They didn't know if anyone would watch - I know I wouldn't have thought that, they didn't know it would be a media hit, and they didn't know they had c list fame straight after.

    So we had people acting as normal people. And it was enthralling.

    Round the table with Nasty Nick.
    Darren talking to chickens.
    Craig being too nice for any human ever.
    That Scottish blokes semi.

    So why did it go wrong?

    Series 2 was the first mistake.

    The housemates realised what they were sitting on. And went in there with game plans, after plans, and acts. They discussed what they'd do after - they KNEW they were being watched. This resulted in crap TV.

    Series 3 +
    Big brother goes Jerry Springer.
    To hell with people representative of the UK, let's put as many homosexuals, strippers, TV prostitutes, and "Wacky" people as possible.

    Basically, it went from an interesting social experiement, to the ultimate of low-brow TV.

    Girls running in the house instantly getting their t*ts out, discussing what they're going to do when famous, knowing Zoo and Nuts will chuck them a few quid for some pics, and that they can try and snare a footballer. Acting up to the cameras etc etc

    It's a pile of steaming poo.

    How to revive Big Brother.
    If I was in charge of Big Brother I'd do this.

    1) Recruit normal house mates.
    We don't want Glamour models and strippers. We're not after shock value. Normal people make the most interesting viewing.

    2) Tell them this.
    "We're a small company trying to emulate Big Brother's success, this is a trial show - we predict very low viewing numbers and don't know if it will be released in the uk"

    And then put them on the "Fake" big brother.

    Which of course is the real thing.

    4 weeks or so in. Let them know. Watch how they change.

    Just my 2p.

    Agree?

    I'd love to go in and prove a point by acting normally.

    However, I think it would fail. (Point missed).

    So no.

    I also wouldn't want the media intrusion, and the fact that my band may have only made it off the back of a TV show.

    Wonder what they'd do if you went in and just walked around naked all the time. It'd be a bugger of an editing job!

    I saw a little bit this morning and shook my head in disgust when the Victoria Beckham wannabe was being shown.

    They all think it's an easy route to a career in TV and are just living it up for the cameras.

    This is what I hate about Big Brother, even though you despise it with every ounce of your soul it still has you talking about it. And that's what makes it as huge success, love it or hate it you're still involved in it.

    NEWSFLASH.

    Big Brother is not meant for adults. If every adult that watches it stopped it would still be a runaway success. It's funded by the under 18's who spend their hard earned pocket money on credit for their pink Motorola Razr's to vote, the same lot that put Crazy Frog at #1. Putting it on late just makes them want to watch it more. The producers cottoned on to this after series 2 and it's no coincidence that it's become Blue Peter Live with tit's.

    BB sucks because its trying too hard to get the viewers.
    I'd go in but I dont think I'd be able to put up with the idiots that'd be in there, failing that my mouth would get me in trouble
