Come Dine With Me
Advantages: Funny and good comical value
The aim of this programme is to win £1000, you have to create a 3 course dinner for 3 or 4 other guests in your home, provide alcohol to drink, the entertainment, and canapes if you wish. I have seen some people on this show who have had basic entertainment such as a jacuzzi, scottish dancing or some just get the good old karaoke machine out.
The show follows the contestants throughout their whole day, whether they are getting last minute haircuts, last minute ingredient shopping, their cooking throughout the whole day including their food preparing and their baking. Some people that I have seen on the show do indeed cheat and get a private caterer or a chef in to prepare some of the meals, the producers of the show do not seem to care about this however as it is the persons own personal choice.
The people who are coming to the dinner party all live around the same area in a town or city, they arrive to their destinations by taxi and leave by taxi. You see the contestants walking towards the houses and then entering via the front door, once all the guests have arrived they are then allowed a quick snoop around the hosts house. Find alsorts of dirty secrets within their personal posessions, one show I watched, one woman owned a whip in her bedroom.
Once the night is over and the guests leave they have to rate the evening based on the food, the entertainment and the hosting skills, they mark the host out of 10. They hold up white bits of card with black large lettering on. The lowest I have personally seen awarded was a 4. Once they have done this everynight, the points are totalled up and the person with the most points at the end of the week wins, it is then up to the last host of the week to present the standings, they walk into the room with the money laid on a silver platter and scroll in the middle, they read the scroll with the standings on out to the room. The winner is then announced and this round of come dine with me meetings is finished.
The contestants on the show are normally a very varied bunch and some are very fiery and are up for confrontation and trust me you do see a lot of that. Some people go on there and are very genuine and some do not hold back and are quite two faced.
I know that the show is now aired on C4, More 4 and E4, giving you lots of choice of which channel you wish to watch it on. They all show different episodes so the choice is even better. The commentator adds the best bit of the show, he is hilarious and always has snidey comments towards the contestants, he has a cheeky answer to their comments when they are talking to the camera, he is very sarcastic and this makes the programme as good as it is, I think the commentator is called Dave Lamb.
I would recommend watching this programme if you want a good laugh and are stuck for something to watch, it is unbelievably funny.
Summary: Good interesting funny tv programme.
