Yeah I still remember the editing was awful in the final series on Nine. It would go from night time to day time and then back to night time. I mean how hard is it to show things in a chronological order and with time stamps like BB UK does and like our BB used to when it was on Ten?When Mike talks about Alex as EP, he's meaning Friday Night Live specifically. FNL was Alex's baby well before he took on the main BB EP role during the CH9 run (which makes you wonder why 9's Showdown was so crap then... that one has to 100% be 9's fault)
I wasn't aware of it either, TBH! That's not something I'd ever say. Be critical, not hurtful (not that a cancer diagnosis is anything to be critical about).
Let's not forget also that the house door between the lounge room and backyard was made solid for 2013 and 2014, which prevented any natural light from getting inside. How convenient for the editing room looking for a faux storyline . The ability to witness house happenings in the same order as they really happen and with contextual details intact (like the time of day) that can be cut from edited highlights is one of the reasons why the live stream (and not just a twitter feed!) is so important.
