Yes, much to the chargrin of many of my friends I’ve started watching Big Brother 06. And I’m thinking it’s gonna fail this year.
It seems their thinking was along the lines of, last year we nearly had it, but the people were too skanky and uneducated. This year we’ve got a good share of educated people, but they’re all still kind of skanks.
I think only three of them didn’t say they have cheated on their partners in the past, and at least two of them said they are chronic cheaters with no remorse. Given the demographic of this program, are we sending the right message to our youth with this sort of programming.
Sure it makes for better TV; but a mother, daughter combo who went for a boob-job – TOGETHER – seven weeks before entering the house! And it was the mum’s idea. Scary.
I’ll still be interested to see what happens… I like to watch.
