Big Brother 5

Recommended Posts

The other one they had on recently was called "Shattered" - to see how long people could stay awake for. Person who stayed awake longest got the prize.

 

I don't perticularly like the reality shows either, but any idea what the record was on this show? I was just interested how long these guys would stay awake for.

According the website, the person who won stayed up for 178 hours = 7 days 10 hrs - which is a long time.

Next there'll be:

School TV: Students in school with really mean teachers, voting on who will get the highest grade.

 

No, really.

 

Reality TV is STUPID!!!!

Hasn't got one on there that I can see; there is one for the longest a person has been in a coma, which is 37 years, 111 days.

It wouldn't surprise me. Before Big Brother was on tonight, there was another bloody Pop Idol-esque "let's find the next Bollywood star". At the same time as Hell's Kitchen on ITV - where they shove a load of celebs in a restaurant headed by Gordon Ramsey (not the nicest chef in the world) and vote them off one by one.

 

Oh joy.

The official record for going without sleep is 265 hours and 12 minutes. Roughly 11 days.

Damn, that's a long time without sleep. I've done it for 3 and been completely dead, don't know how they did it tbh.

Yeah, the first year of uni started by pulling all nighters, which gradually gave way to two nights in a row with lectures most of the two days ... by the third year I had almost mastered it, and now I'm almost at 3 nights but it kills me these days....11 days is incredible.

Yes, a mixture of (a) socialising and (b) too much work tends to lead to not very much sleep at all.

Yes, it does tend to lead to that - I've cut back on socialising quite a lot myself, these exams are very important if I want to stay on my MMath course, so I've got to do as well as I can in them.

 

Even so, I feel a bit disappointed with a few because there have been some questions on there that I could have done much better on if I had bothered reading a certain section of the notes.

 

The moral of the story is: revise :P

the moral of the story is......revise consistently throughout the year....I talk from experience here, boring as it seems ;) Then you can have fun AND pass exams. Little and often....blah blah blah....god do I sound boring :D ! Anyway, who mentioned Hell's Kitchen....I totally love Gordon Ramsay (all great chef's are bad tempered...again I talk form experience having worked in restaurants in my yoof)...he is totally fanciable. I sometimes wonder where all the real men went, nowadays we seem to have girlie-boys and "new men" as celebrities. This would freak out your average feminist but I like men to be men (like my husband, Dad and brothers) and Gordon Ramsay fits the bill!! :D Sorry, seem to have gone off on a tangent there ;)

You've never seen/heard the plot of Big Brother? That amazes me.

 

They basically shove 12 people in a house for 10 weeks or so who are constantly monitored by cameras and have no contact with the outside world' date=' and then evict one person each week until there's about 3 or 4 and then they boot the other 2 or 3 out, leaving 1 winner who collects a cash prize. That's the general jist of it, at least.[/quote']

 

 

bleh, you wild and crazy 'Brits ;)

 

in full agreement with Sayonara(very 1st post), but hey, there are a lot of stupidities in this world that someone always finds amusing.

Perhaps we should make a thread: Design the next Reality TV show!

 

actually I had a really good idea for one. It involves high calibre comedians and a bus. I think it would be really good actually.

How about high calibre cannon and a bus of comedians?

As in bus calibred, for more comedy entertainment?

 

(btw the only "decent" series of Big Brother was when they did it the first time around for Red Nose Day with Jack Dee et al, that was quite superb :P)
