Hey! third time lucky. Surely, if they're going back for thirds, the talent pool is very shallow or indeed dry.
Casting a known personality is a first for TEN, which may bring a following but also comes with perceptions about its lead star which may work against it.
I did like Sophie, she used to be funny, but she was creepy and stupid on Celeb Apprentice, she did not deserve to win - and it seemed so rigged that she did, she was asleep for the first half of the series.
Why doesn't she sing, ever?
She has a really good voice, wasn't she classically trained and stuff?
I personally thought Sophie was great on Celeb Apprentice. She was one of the most likeable of that season's cast and it reminded me how funny she can be. She didn't come across creepy to me at all. May I ask what you thought was creepy about her? I did think the final was swayed towards her winning instead of Tim Dormer. Didn't they film 2 endings? I have a wild theory that the producers see who is more likeable while the show is airing and pick whoever is the most popular in the public out of the final 2 to win. Tim did contribute more to the actual tasks and that in the series than Sophie.
I feel a bit disappointed we never got a follow up album to Sophie's debut. I always enjoy the campy and pure pop stuff. While the two out of three singles did alright the album didn't do as well as a record company would have liked. She would have been dropped and I suppose after that experience she moved into acting and realistically I can't see a new Sophie Monk album making any impact in this day and age whatsoever. I remember reading rumours in 2006 she was working on music but even then I think it would have been ignored by the majority of the public.
Glad someone else likes her music. She was a good pop star (and Popstar).
Yeah, she has a great voice, and I have always been puzzled why she wasn't picked up by somebody - not that easy to find gorgeous looking good singers to plug and make $$$ with, she was the whole package with a fun personality, puzzling.
But I actually meant she should sing at live things, like Carols and that sort of thing, and she could do musical theatre, maybe she has.
I want to wipe away the ick feel I got from Celeb A, she just struck me as not the old fun Sophie, and more of a bootlicker fake. Who know with that kind of show, it's rubbish and weird.
