Does anyone watch Big Brother UK?

This is the first year I have really watched Big Brother in the States from its beginning, but I was reading how the current version of Big Brother UK runs and I have to say I was shocked

First, it makes our version of the game look like a boring tea party and second, the cast is truly a crazy mix of characters.

Does anyone watch this version of Big Brother UK and is it as crazy as it seems to be?

Re: Does anyone watch Big Brother UK?

There is a Big Brother 9 thread in the chat thread section.

This year's Big Brother has been rubbish. It is pretty boring and the ratings this year has been poor. The best series to watch is Big Brother 5 (2004). That is widely regarded as the best Big Brother ever (in the UK).

If you want to see a great housemate, check out Charley from Big Brother 8 on youtube

Re: Does anyone watch Big Brother UK?

I don't think our BB could possibly be any worse nowadays. Since 2005, I've tried my best to keep watching, I really have, but it's just not entertaining anymore. Ever since Nadia, The Lip Gloss Bitches, Victor and Jason's season finished in 2004, it's been dooooownhill ever since.

OMG The Lip Gloss Bitches.

Does anyone remember the USA BB Season "The X Factor" with Jun (who won) and Alison?? Now THAT was entertaining! Alison was a Goddess. And Jason. It's the only one they showed on E4 here.

Women's tennis sucks.

Here is the famous Fight Night:




And just because she is hilarious, here is one of my favourite Charley moments:



I crack up every time I see that She was the only reason I watched last year.

Re: Does anyone watch Big Brother UK?

Big Brother UK is not what it used to be.

There have been some classic drama moments this year though. I think it's on its way out now though - it's just too long running, I lose interest after a few weeks and all the aggressive ones have been chucked out.

Thanks for the info. The show just sounds nutty compared to the States version.

Re: Does anyone watch Big Brother UK?

the UK version is better than the US version, but that isn't saying much...it still sucks

the US version is mind-numbingly boring, whereas the UK version is just boring

Re: Does anyone watch Big Brother UK?

Just watched fight night again. Its actually really scary. if i had have been there i would have left the next day.

I still don't get why Vanessa went off on one in that second clip. That seems to have caused the biggest physical fight.

Marco was such a twat.

Re: Does anyone watch Big Brother UK?

Yeah, I loved some of the old BB.

One with Nikkie, Grace, Mikey, Pete etc. which one was that?

And then the first one I really watched with Nadia in, was that the one with Michelle and Stuart?
