    Ergh, it's lost it's appeal to me. Especially seeing as it's full of women, and the only guy in there is an utter tit.

    BB is only worth watching in the last 2-4 weeks...

    Do those twins count as one person or do they get evicted individually?

    Due to some of the Admins hatred of the show any mention of BB usually gets edited or deleted, good luck with this thread ;)

    The initial series was alright, it was a genuinely interesting experiment. Then they caught onto the idea of adding gimmicks, and so everything was turned inside out, you had to shower outside in-front of the world and all that. Then they caught onto the idea that they could basically be absolute bastards to people and they wouldn't get a wrist-slapping because they'd signed up to it, cue driving people to the point of insanity and setting up dates to get people to have sex live on national television (although the Jade - Shilpa situation backfired and they got a little of what they deserved).

    I say that but I'll probably tune in when there's only five or six people to get to know. I can't remember 12 people's names and personalities, I just don't care enough, and at the beginning it's just "let's all party until we're sick" and "I fancy you, let's have sex". But when there's only a few left it moves away from that and more towards nervousness and people's real personalities come out, so you get to see more of the real person (which is the actual point, for those who are going to reply to this and say "why do you skip the drinking and the sex, that's the best bit lolololol").

    But the girlfriend's been here watching it today, so can I just ask - what the hell is that old bint's game, telling everybody she's 72 when she's 60? What's the point in that?

    Shes a weird one, she makes little lies up.

    I dont see why people apply to come on the show and then ask to leave a couple of days later. They should be forced to stay in the house until evicted.

    How tasty is Carol the bisexual anti war protesting break dancer, yum yum.

    Me and my mate went to the auditions hungover in Manchester in Feb. We abused Chanelle in the queue. I posted the full story on another forum but I got banned the other day for posting porn there (oh alcohol how you hinder me), so when I get unbanned I'll post it here LADS. :thumbsup:

    I got swept along in the build up for the current series (watched them go in etc), yet I haven't watched a single minute of the resulting in-house action. Looks pretty shite to be honest. Absolutely rubbish housemates this year, a few good looking girls and a couple of old duffers, that's about it. No really interesting characters or anything.

    Quote from a BBC forum member, "I think that Channel 4 would have been disappointed if they hadn't had a chance to kick someone out because of racism" - absolutely spot on. I bet the production staff are beaming this afternoon.

    Cue the "is 'niggah' an acceptable term" debate all over again - and the papers will be full of it for a few days. But at least it means there won't be a 5th consecutive week (although it feels like 75th) of "Madeleine probably alive, we just thought we'd tell you again, even though we told you yesterday, the day before and all of last week actually".

    What a silly bint - why the hell would you say that?!

    I'm sure she didn't mean anything by it - but you can't say stuff like that - especially to the only black woman in the house.

    I fancied her the most - oh well! Racist Bitch :-)

    Unfortunately the girl is probably going to be vilified now. Which from what I know about this incident, wouldn't be fair. Like you say though JB, the press persecution will at least get Madeleine off the front pages for five seconds. It's a shame you have to say that I suppose...

    To be honest with you, to be really horribly bluntly honest with you (and I thought the Madeleine stuff would get me burnt at the stake), I don't think too much of it at all. I bet if they'd have asked the black girl if she was offended, she would have said "well no, not really, she just said a stupid word, there was no malice in it".

    Jade went at Shilpa like a dog chomping at the bit, and the things she said were said in pure hatred. Whether you think the way she said "Shilpa Poppadom" was offensive or not, she wasn't saying it in a nice way, put it like that. She hated her and she made no effort to hide it - until she thought (and thought aloud as well), "oh shit, people are going to think I'm a racist now" and started all of the waterworks. She was just full of hate towards her, end of, and in that instance I can understand why people would say Channel 4 should have booted her out.

    What has this latest bird said? They were dancing and she asked the girl if she was "pushing it out, n****r" (or possibly niggah - does that need censoring?). For those with even less street cred than I (word), "pushing it out" is a phrase similar to "shaking your booty" or "bootay" if you're adventurous. Sorry, but she was laughing and joking with her, there was no malice in it whatsoever. She was doing what she's seen in American dramas and sitcoms. No malice, no hatred, just a stupid choice of word.

    Should they have kicked her out? Well I don't know, like I say, if they'd asked the black girl if she was offended I'm sure she'd say no, but then you've got the "celebrities should be setting an example" parade - despite the fact that it's aired after the watershed and so, in my view, there shouldn't be any such calls. They've been told to be themselves, she was. Stupid or otherwise, she's not evil.

    This is going to sound stupid but if you don't know any black people yourself, then you're going to be uncomfortable around them at first (not because you're racist but because it's something new). I don't know any black people, and so I'm always "aware" when there's any in the same room as me - even though we're flesh and blood and there's no difference between us, it's something that's not usual and so by the very definition of "comfortable" (being used to something), you're going to feel a little weird. It's human nature. It's the same if you don't know any gay people or whatever - I have a gay relative and at first I had the above feeling whenever we met at a wedding or whatever, but eventually you get used to it when you see them a few times, and it doesn't register any longer that they're gay, they're just that guy.

    Anyway, my point being, if you don't previously have any black friends and suddenly you do, you don't know what is acceptable and what isn't, you just don't. How can you when you've never had any before? You know that the N word is a bad word, or at least you think you do, and then there's people saying it on TV like it's in style. I've seen a white person say "niggah" in a few sitcoms around the last 6-12 months, and there wasn't even a single word published regarding that. I would never say the N word to any black person, and as somebody who's grown up in the current climate I do actually get uncomfortable whenever there's a black guy around in-case somehow, by some horrible brain malfunction, I do come out with e.g. "what a shot niggah", because it was on the TV last night and it's stuck in my head waiting to pop out and ruin my life. But then at the same time, because of this stigma about the word, I feel a bit outraged. Like, how come it's deemed acceptable half the time? This guy says it and it's funny, this other guy says it and he's never looked at the same way again. It's hard to know what the rules are.

    Put it like this, in Shaun Of The Dead, one of the best films to come out of the UK, there's a scene where Nick Frost pulls up in a car and says, in a high-pitched squeak, "whassup niggahs?" - now all this girl said was "are you pushing it out, niggah?" (I'm assuming that the BBC are saying she said "n****r" so that it's deemed a juicier news story). So are they both okay, or both wrong? Answers on a postcard please...

    Anyway, now that you've all fallen asleep, or started the "Jack Bauer is a racist bastard" club, I'll be off. *Zoooooom*

    Channel 4 tried to prove a point & jumped at the chance.

    Although I don't agree with the use of the derogratory N word (especially in Rap music), I think they got it possibly wrong here.

    However I'm hoping that now less people will use it after this. All that work by millions of people, Malcolm X, MLK, Rosa Parks seems all for nothing nowadays.

    Well that'll learn me for not checking this forum closely enough. This thread is on shaky ground, there's a reason there was no BB thread.
