Big Brother is ending. Favourite moments?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about that Cockfest Big Brother video I got years back, and recalled this moment - which at the time I didnt really think twice about. It was gobby Caroline, who kept being put up for the public vote. Well during the night, she gets up and puts her pillows on the bed and starts smashing into them with her firsts. Mounted punches, axe handles the lot. Then she cries her eyes out as the house sleeps. I think the producers should have stepped in there.

Nicola Holt's reaction to having a birthday party was amazing. Usually you take the party and be happy that its a brief distraction from the boredom. But Nicola responded by crying her eyes out and saying "what's the use of having a birthday party with a bunch of cunts."

This needs a review. This is Frantic Planet worthy. Complete madness.

Derek and Science were one of my favourite double acts in Big Brother.

Derek: 'Do you understand me dear boy?'

Science: 'Not only do I understand you, I overstand you!'

*conversation ends due to Derek's confusion*

 

That's sent me on a Derek YouTube hunt. I loved this moment, the look in his eyes when he delivered that last line...

You will probably see the programme happening again in a few years on Youtube or something like that.

According to Mrs. Lord-Mountvans ITV2 have already picked up Big Brother. 

It's the tv show that refuses to die! :)

ITV night be even worse than Channel 4. I often wonder who actually watches ITV because apart from World Cup games, I don't believe I've watched anything on any ITV channels in years.

Fill it with the World of Sport crew. Same format with nominations, but instead of a public vote, they have a loser leave town match live on Saturday night.

Nah,  if they were arguing and it was about to kick off, it would jump cut to an empty bedroom and then the chickens before cutting back to someone unconscious on the floor.

I'm in working watching the fall of Sezer in the background. 

There's probably better episodes, but it was such a good start to 2006. In many ways the series wouldn't recover, and it set the theme going forward for the biggest shit stirrers getting knocked off one by one and gutting the show of most of its drama in the opening weeks. 

It's still great here, though. Grace is the utlra heel, way more so than the hundred of so people who came in her wake, threatened to have someone murdered or whatever and then were chucked out after twenty minutes. Watching Sezer get his comeuppance with what I think was like 94% of the vote was amazing at the time. That group were genuinely odious, giving Aisleyne a redemption story that threatened to have her win the whole thing and casting Richard as a fairly likable dad figure despite his ruthless handling of Shabaz like a week prior. 

It was the year that equipped Big Brother with the makings of its demise. Too many housemates, an overabundance of twists, dicking with the format. It was also the series where the crowd gained self awareness of the influence they had over the show, getting themselves over when the live mic from outside cut into the house. I still loved it, though. It was the last proper, proper hot one that had the papers widely covering it for the 'right' reasons. The next season would be the Jade Goody CBB.

It was hideously uncomfortable. The entire house ostracized him for a few days, if I recall, bar Pete and quiet George having a few words with him.

I'll never forget getting mistaken for Craig from Big Brother 1 in a restaurant/bar in Dublin once. It would have been around February 2001. Absolutely fucking bonkers experience as I don't even remotely look like him. It spread like wildfire throughout the place and loads of people were coming up to me and shaking my hand and congratulating me and my girlfriend at the time (who was pregnant). I really, truly, genuinely thought I was on Beadle's About or something.
It haunted and confused me for weeks after it.

Plus that one had Butchie's fave Leah Walker!

It was like a scene from Game of Thrones when she left the house. A slow walk, arms folded. Absolutely shitting herself at the idea of being hated.

That series had Spoirul doing a Dr Dre rap and saying the N word, he was bellend.  I think that was the last one I watched every night.
