    Big Brother returns in the Netherlands

    Same as their version of Survivor then.

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    It got used on BBAU before too.

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    It doesn't surprise me too much - by the time they got rid of it the house divide was choking the season, so they needed something simpler for BB4. And the rewards room was a good way to continue the live challenges while reverting the shopping tasks back to the weekly format. The only real...

    Davina first choice to front revived Celeb BBUK in 2021

    To be fair Gretel IS five years older than Davina.

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    If anything, it's one of the biggest casts they ever had (and that's probably part of the issue with the season as a whole; it's fun, but everyone was so brand-conscious that there wasn't much drama outside of Coolio getting on everyone's tits). Coolio is legit one of the biggest names CBB ever...

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    I think there are things in BB4 that would have been great ideas if the show believed in production values (the challenges are generally good ideas, and the camp beds is a nice precursor to Have Nots), but also the show as it is now is so over-produced that it's that cheap-and-nasty charm that...

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    I watched BBAU from the start but even with BBUK making the news down here a few times (Shilpagate obviously, but Fight Night and Germaine Greer also), and with Anouska and Nadia making cameos, and with BB Uncut routinely trotting out the "other countries' housemates are sluts, look!" specials...

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    The one that's surprising me is Helen's blinking clip, because that's not actually from a highlights episode. It only ever appeared in the weekly catch-up.

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    As BB Spy points out, Fight Night (and most of the other episodes from BB5 that are worth picking) are kind of the exact opposite of the tone this is trying to strike.

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    So basically they picked some C5 episodes and couldn't get the rights/they picked the Vanessa Feltz meltdown and Jack Dee wouldn't clear his image, and that's why the CBB6 episode is here.

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    My feeling is that because CBB5 was such a rough experience for production (which, admittedly, they mostly brought upon themselves), and BB8/BB:CH were almost deliberately underwhelming to help ride out the storm, and BB9 tried things to regain the spotlight but never really succeeded, that the...

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    Tonight's episode is the CBB4 talent show shopping task (presumably with a disclaimer about Barrymore's Hitler impression, given what happened with Lewis in BB19). That'd mean the cat task, which was a few days later as part of the second shopping task, is next week. I imagine the CBB7 thing...

    Davina hosts BBUK: Best Episodes Ever from 14 June

    All the clips from the previews are taken from the same seven episodes, four of which are among this set. That'd suggest three of the episodes next week are Alison Hammond breaking the table in BB3, the George Galloway cat task from CBB4, and Ivana Trump's arrival in CBB7. I'd also be shocked if...

    The defining episode of each season

    2001 - Either the very first highlights show, or the Blair/Anita argument. 2002 - Boycotting the international task. CBB - Warwick Capper's ejection. 2003 - So many options. Belindagate, the Jaime eviction, the houses uniting, Reggie's secret mission, the Anouska special... 2004 - Either the...

    Does BBAU have a problem with POC?

    I think part of the issue is for so long, the diversity aspect of casting was basically "one Italian or Greek, one Other Mediterranean, and up to two Miscellaneous (at least one of these castings being an intruder to counter diversity criticisms), then a bunch of whites". And even then those...

    Does BBAU have a problem with POC?

    Yeah Talia and Daniel are definitely the top two, and then mayyyyybe Garth ("old fat white gay" is one of those archetypes that skews towards "why do I have to bother being PC?") or Sarah ("grew up below poverty line, joined army" combines two things that cause concern) as the third.

    Does BBAU have a problem with POC?

    No, there were more reports from after the temporary Covid pause that suggest it doesn't improve.

    Does BBAU have a problem with POC?

    The problem is with this format you can do all the diverse casting you want but if you have one racist winning a bunch of challenges suddenly your season goes tits up. And if you told me to look at the cast bios and take three guesses at who the most racist is, I wouldn't need all of them to...

    Big Brother Au Promo Talk

    Apparently filming yesterday seemed to suggest an Attack of the 50-Foot Sonia concept for the ads this year.
