Advantages: Easy watching
Disadvantages: Too addictive!
I am a MASSIVE Big Brother fan, and admit that i am pretty gutted that its the final year this year.
Big Brother began in 2000 and the concept of the show is like no other, something that had never been done before inthe UK. It is like a fly on the wall show, where 11 people were put into a house and their every move is watched 24/7 by multiple camera's and Big Brother. There are no hiding places at all!! Big Brother sets the housemates weekly tasks in order to win a shopping budget, if they win they will receive a luxury shopping budget but if they fail they get a basic one which is £1 per person per day - nightmare!!
Big Brother can seriously mess with the housemates heads, playing tricks on them, sometimes evil ones - one year there was a divide with the rich side and poor side. It is very psychological and all housemates talk to the shows psychologist on several occasions.
Each week the housemates nominate 2 other housemates to put up for eviction, and the two with the highest amount of votes will face the public vote. On Friday night the housemate with the highest votes will be evicted and meet the lovely Davina McCall :)
Big Brother 1 - The first series, people had no idea what to expect and this made for good viewing as it was all new and exciting for the viewer. This series was made memorable for Nasty Nick trying to cheat and influence peoples votes! Craig Phillips was the winner of this series.
Big Brother 2 - This series of Big Brother is by far and away my favourite series, so many funny characters, especially the winner Brian Dowling who even now is my total favourite ever housemate!!
Big Brother 3 - This Big Brother is probably one of the most famous as this is where we first met Jade Goody (R.I.P). Jade captured the hearts of the people of the UK after a shaky start and she still remains one of the nations favourite housemates. The winner of this series was Kate Lawler.
Big Brother 4 - Possibly the most BORING series of Big Brother - i must admit i almost ended up giving up on this series as there was nothing to keep viewers hooked. The winner was Cameron Stout - who knows where he is now?!?!
Big Brother 5 - Big Brother knew they would have to shake things up this series and this one became famous for the first sex on the show and also the mother of all fights which resulted in one housemate being removed from the house. The winner was transexual Nadia Almada.
Big Brother 6 - This series was one of relationships, sex in the pool and a gay bloke becoming what can only be described as obsessed with another housemate. The winner was Anthony Hutton.
Big Brother 7 - The characters seen in the house this year were seen as the most outrageous so far - we have a Tourettes sufferer, a manic recovering anorexic and many many attention seekers. The main character this series was Nikki Graham, who at times was great viewing, but other times was a little disturbing. The winner was Tourettes sufferer Pete Bennett.
Big Brother 8 - Big Brother 8 was mainly memorable for Brian Belo and the "barbie twins", Brian was very similar to Jade Goody in some of his Brian-isms and this was hilarious to watch at times. He developed a sweet relationship with one of the twins and he was the eventual winner.
Big Brother 9 - Yet another BORING series - very little memorable about this and it was this series that gave us Rachel Rice as the most unexpected winner imagineable!
Big Brother 10 - Although this is last years series, again it was a little forgettable and the winner, Sophie again is also a little forgettable. The series seemed to revolve around a love triangle with an Irish goal called Noireen.
Who will be the winner of this, the final series??
As you can tell from this, i am an avid Big Brother fan (as sad as it is) and will definately miss it!!
Summary: Great show
