Big Brother UK Final
The Big Brother travesty on Channel 5 took to the airwaves for its last night this series on Monday 13th August 2012, the night after we the United Kingdom hosted and closed the glorious Olympic Games.
The comedown of Olympic success and phenomenal talent, receiving gold medals for their accolades, now bore witness to five ‘individuals’ in a reality house whittling them all down to just one common denominator to reward with £50,000.
Would we reward a non-descript young female who was a non-entity who had praise for the Queen, or a guy with a troublesome past not to be mentioned on a telly show, for which Big Brother broke, possibly causing further problems for his former life. Also in contention was a trans female to male contestant with moral standpoints, a muscle man metrosexual obsessive and a former glamorous Miss India contestant.
Instantly beginning with the first eviction, the muscle man metrosexual with arrogant and temper tantrums with a ripped six pack and dyed brown ginger hair upset that his protein powder was concocted with curry powder know as Luke S was removed from the house.
He was quizzed for a ‘camera’s only/pass the time’ fling disguised as a ‘relationship’ with former contestant Ashleigh Hughes, who claimed blind people could see in the dark.
Next to be released from the TV studio house was Sara McLean. The glamour puss who left nothing short of desire and often did some dirty dancing in her underwear, whilst having no outright personality and renowned as an extra left. She was cheered by some. Others had no reaction towards her.
Missing the final two were the group of the outsiders. Miss India, Deena Uppal came out of the house as third place contestant. Ms Uppal, who had caused controversy for standing up for herself against those who aimed to nominate and tarnish her self worth held her credibility upon a gracious exit. She wasn’t an original member of the “outsiders” grouping that were trimmed down in early weeks and going the remaining two weeks before the end as a natural survivor.
The final two, Adam Kelly and Luke A (Anderson), the final two insiders duked it out to be named the winner. The honourable and rightful Luke A received the nod for £50,000 from the voting public as Adam took second place. The pair had become best friends over the duration of the BB imprisonment. Both left the house to raucous cheers in the TV studio outside.
Thankfully, after the mass debacles of the show, and there were numerous which saw no action resolved getting away with light TV ‘murder’, the faith was restored by the Great British public to donate the prize to a noteworthy and deserving human being consistent of morals and dignity.
Conor McIntyre stole £50,000 from the prize fund the week prior in a button pushing task for sitting in a white room for numerous hours only.
So Big Brother UK came under intense scrutiny for producing a neo nazi in Caroline Wharram, a narcissistic woman abuser in Conor McIntyre and a foul mouthy, gobby Essex girl to maintain the “Essex Way” which is no true reflection on the county. With no action taken on abusive content from the above and others involved, with a changing of rules where an eviction of two popular housemates did not halt or reschedule an eviction process only marring it instead and an over sexualised theme from a newspaper editor who owns pornographic channels encouraging the values of de humanising society with its reputation on our screens has highly defragmented the real one we live in.
Unpreparing people for when they re-join the realms of reality off of TV, enforcing them to adopt those characters further and transferring them as role models with foul morals, abuse and racist or obnoxious, bullish detriments to others now deemed beneath these glorified TV stars warped by a sense of celebrity worth from being on a TV product that has set them free as fodder to make their own millions has now caused ripples into Great Britain’s unworthy ‘stars.’
Channel 5 and Big Brother will continue to churn out the format, unrealising that while they have a show every year, the output they transmit everytime will be defunct, devalued and hold no credibility whatsoever. Every show will be utter rubbish. On its predecessor, Channel 4, the show always had its credibility in tact over a record eleven series. Channel 5 has come under intense scrutiny as producing a product that has no scope from old foxes trying to raise youthful cubs to follow this reality show now being turned into a “gameshow” which is still very much reality TV at best. The fact some old guy is fully out of touch with the own concept of the show he grasped hold of highlights the tarnished reputation of that old man and the Channel desperate to get ratings and notoriety. While 5 get viewers, no one ever views the channel as a viable source and just watches for a bit then turns off when the ‘proper’ stuff comes on. 5 are desperate to gain viewers who value, stick with and depend on the shows broadcast. 5 have no scope to ascertain that audience should they continue this way. They have pinched numerous American shows and aimed to reform the British Big Brother, stood for on moral standards and how a real person lives with others, to a devious, backstabbing format to America’s BB. While this works for American TV, it doesn’t bode well for UK audience, and the fact 5 missed that or just ignored it through defiance and egotism completely highlights the problems it faces. It cannot maintain any credibly as anything other than a defunct trailer trash, bargain bin grouping unless it rethinks its full on ethical standards in production.
Alternatively, hire some executives or producers or even new people to fully revamp the show with staff on their want, with someone who understands the show and its audience requirements. I am available, when you put stubborn attitudes aside. See contact tab on this site for more details. 🙂
