Finally, sanity has occurred and the "social experiment", Big Brother is ending!!!!
Always believed it should have been done once or twice then died way back in the 90's (was in Holland when it first came out and it made no sense then over what it wanted to achieve) but apparently the viewing publics disagreed with me. Dreadful program full stop.

I only ever watched the so called 'Celebrity' version of Big Brother, the last one finished on Sunday.
There was horrific incident which occurred between two British soap actors Ryan Thomas and Roxanne Pallett.
She accused him of punching her numerous times in the stomach. She forgot the cameras are everywhere in that house and they saw quite clearly that he had done no such thing.
Problem was, she also told all the other housemates and most of them believed her.
The press got hold of it and unbeknown to the housemates they had her 'hung drawn and quartered'. The producers of Big Brother made a massive mistake not removing her from the house as Ms Pallett carried on with her lies for 3 days.
IN the end Ryan Thomas begged BB to put this right with the other housemates. They did, individually, in the diary room. Roxanne was pretty much alienated and walked out of the house. She was too frightened to face the public when she was evicted.
Since then she has faced a real backlash of hate from every source available and has been forced to make three TV interviews to apologise for 'getting it so wrong'.
So yes, a social experiment which could have ruined the life of one young actor, instead has finished the career of a scheming lying actress.
Time it was finished.

I certainly won't miss it. And if it kills off other reality shows maybe the networks will spend their money on more, decent drama and documentaries. Here's hoping.

Celebrity Big Brother is slightly different. I personally like watching so called celebs wriggle and squirm when they are locked up in that house for 3 weeks. Kirsty Alley was in the last one. She came second.
Also seen Alex Baldwin in one series, Like him in films. Quite awful in 'real life'
I also like 'some' reality shows such as SCD, X Factor, Britains got Talent and I'm a Celebrity get me out of here.
I certainly don't watch trashy Love Island (which won a TV Choice award last week) or in fact any other reality show other than those I've listed above

the above Gold badge is not official and as such does not represent O2 community's officially sanctioned winners badges. They are blue, I made this gold myself, because I wanted to, after 4 years of writing the best reviews seen on these here forums, I decided to take that status, and adopt it into my own coloured badge.
To clarify. I changed the colour and added the years, O2 community admin, did not. Please don't be confused.
