    Just thought I'd start a thread for anyone wanting to rewatch older series of BB or CBB UK...

    This thread may contain spoilers...

    @Trala and I are currently watching UBB if anyone feels like joining...

    I've said this before but I really relate to Chantel in the UBB house... I'd probably end up crying just as much if I was stuck in a house with my "ex"...

    Im only 2 eps in and I LOVE it! Not sure of anyone’s name yet outside Chantelle and her husband, but they seem to be a great group to watch. Oh my days how revolting is that overweight old man who picks his nose and ears it?! He was in a recent celebrity version.

    One thing I am having trouble with, I am struggling to find a YouTube link. The one I am watching has lagging audio.

    John is vile... I don't really know why they put him in there outside of the tree of temptation task... I mean it's not like they were short on pot stirrers for this series...

    As for links I think the best channel is TheBBCouchPotatoes which is the link I posted above... I'm actually shocked that pretty much every other series has been posted in full episodes and in high quality and UBB is stuck in 2010...

    Also wanted to say what a horrible idea it was putting the winner of BB11 right back in after winning... Interesting idea on paper but extremely poor once executed...

    I loved Makosi the first time around but her fake meltdowns have completely turned me off her...

    Hey King, been so busy lately my watching has been spasmodic to say the least...

    Still loving it though. A funny for you, I uploaded an episode and I am thinking “oh my God I swear I don’t remember any of these housemates... my drug fucked brain is REALLY getting worse... Charlotte from Geordie is in it!” Then the penny dropped, my watching the wrong ep!

    Hey I remember there was some angst with a poster who adored Nikki Graham, refresh my memory on the back story. My least favourite for today is Nadia. Could change tomorrow.

    Do you know, as vile as he is, I REALLY enjoyed watching him.

    It’s all good I need to get back on the train as well... I have four jobs at the moment and the last few weeks have left me completely wiped to the point where I keep forgetting to watch...

    The Nikki drama was with @bluegroper... He’s been obsessed with her since she was on BB7 and would literally find every opportunity to post about her... To the point where he’d build shrines (entire threads) in her honour... It all got a little too much (after 4+ years of repetitive posts) and borderline creepy as he has kids her age... He once flew from Sydney to London for her birthday party...

    He went in to a self imposed exile after he got sick of me calling him out on it and he flipped his shit when the mods put a censor on the word Nikki... This was probably around the same time you joined and it was literally Kingston against everyone else...

    He started posting again when she was on BBCAN so to ensure things didn’t get out of control again instigated a little spat and wound up with a week or two vacation... I think he went back in exile when he realized people were more interested in Tim...

    As for UBB I actually feel sorry for Nadia... Her confidence is just a facade as underneath she’s exremely insecure... You can tell by the way she lashes out and has a meltdown anytime she gets in to a tough situation... It’s her crutch... I can’t imagine she’s had an easy go at life either... I can’t imagine what it would have been like to transition in the early 2000’s... Just being gay at that time was still reletively taboo... Trans people in the media at that time were still very much a joke... That show that tried to trick straight men in to dating a trans woman named Miriam aired at the same time that Nadia’s series did...

    I’m not really a big fan of Coolio and his ultra macho ego... He literally picked out Nadia because she was clearly the weakest out of the group...

    Groper story is too funny! I remember when I first joined, some of my favourite initial forum interactions was my battles with you!

    I remember the Miriam series! I always found it was such exploitation on the producers part. It’s Nadia’s voice that annoys me! What happened with her and Coolio? In the ep I watched they announced he agreed to leave and would show more later but never did (unless I got my part eps mixed). I too couldn’t stand is superior attitude in the house.

    Today’s ep saw one of the housemates tasks was to get nominated by every housemate by being a cunt, meanwhile the real task was to overlook her cuntish behaviour and forgive. It was lol funny. Nikki having a midnight meltdown over snorers also tickled me. Her face is super expressive.

    I can’t keep track on the names, my faves for today are the divorced couple and my least fav for today, don’t have one. They are a great bunch.
