Sorry to hear that the big brother "reality" show concept has been exported to Australia...

Yeah, we only just got it. 8 years ago.

I heard something on the radio this morning, something about a revolving door and sending the evictee's to another country... Eh? I'm not actually watching, but i'd like to know what that means exactly.

I haven't seen it since 2004. I watched most of the first two series (2001 and 2002) and caught bits of seasons 3 and 4.

I must actually see if the more recent ones are still being broadcast here in New Zealand. I thought it was good for a laugh but the novelty soon wore off.

Lol - I've just remembered Sara-Marie and her "Bum Dance".

Someone once said that TV was the opiate of the masses.  I think it's not TV, but reality shows (like "Survivor" ) that might be the case.  We here in the US have been infected with this kind of idiocy for over a decade; you've had 8 years of it's mind numbing, IQ reducing stupidity.  Sorry to hear it...

Hmmm let me guess, are you under the age of 18 yourself???  roll eyes

No really, what is the facination with Corey!? Even the two hosts, Kyle & Jackie O, sound so scripted when they ask the audience "Soooo have you all changed your opinion on Corey yet? Do you love him now?" Oh COME ON throw me a bone. What a freaking media ploy to cherish a one minute publicity idiot, make him out to be the exact opposite of the very thing he got famous for, and keep him in the spotlight? NOBODY CARES COREY.

PS He really should sign up to do one of those Clearasil ads instead. That'd help.

Rima may be back but it's all a rumour. I highly doubt she'd be back as a fully fledged housemate still in the running to win the major prize. I say this because she's now missed out on nearly two weeks of BEING in the house and the experience. she's been on the outside adn it's unfair to the original housemates who are "playing" the game. If anything, she'll be a House GUEST. Like Corey.

Terri is a bigot. Just as much as Saxon was.

Yes, both are painful to even watch... but - it makes for interesting television. Why vote out the controversial people? While I'm at it, why during Eviction night are they giving out votes based on "threats" and "strategic votes" already?? Damn people, it's the FIRST eviction. Hold onto your cards and play them right. Dont' any of you watch Survivor?? Pick out the boring useless ones, keep yourself strong, and then when the tide changes - BAM - knock out your biggest competition then. Heck, they have the most power ever at eviction time now that the whole method has changed! Damn they're stupid.

Finally, what an anticlimax to the eviction process, hey? This revolving door thing... Admittedly perhaps it will become smoother as the weeks go on, and I see what they're trying to do... but when the evictee is ushered out the final door to meet Jackie O, he already knows he's out. The design is flawed, in my opinion. I like how the first two come straight out of the revolver from their positions as a surprise to both themselves and the housemates (wouldn't it be clostrophobic inside that thing during ad breaks??), but the 3rd person, it seems, comes out and walks down a short hallway already. We dont' get to see their instant facial reaction of disappointment and shock when they realised they've been evicted because they already know they're already on the outside of the house.

And that's just my 2 cents.
