Here is what 2006 Big Brother contestant Krystal Forscutt looks like now:


If Tori Spelling’s boobs and Lisa Rinna’s lips had a daughter, she would look like this.

Wasn’t karma invented in India? [Big Brother]

Posted in Big Brother, Britannia, news on August 19, 2008 by jetsamjr

So here’s the story: in 2007 British loudmouth Jade Goody is on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. One of her fellow housemates is Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty. An international incident literally almost breaks out when Jade is all racist-like to Shilpa.

In 2008, Shilpa lands a job as host of the Indian version of Big Brother. Jade agrees to be a housemate on this show, called Big Boss. But only a few days into her stint, Jade has to leave the house… because she is diagnosed with cancer.

Moral of the story: don’t mess with India.

This result isn’t exactly unexpected given that Big Brother (with Kyle and Jackie O’s help) practically begged viewers to vote to evict Terri’s rivals:

Even though she’s an avowed supporter of a racist, backwards political party… I think it’s kind of sweet that the old duck won.

Big Brother’s cancellation everyone’s fault but Kyle’s [Big Brother]

Who’s to blame for Big Brother‘s cancellation? Not Kyle Sandilands! The ambitious loudmouth claims that he doesn’t care the show was axed – not only did he see it coming, but he totally already told producers he wasn’t coming back for a ninth season anyway. You can’t fire him! He quits!

It’s time to go… [Big Brother]

Posted in Australiana, Big Brother, cancelled!, news, Ten on July 13, 2008 by jetsamjr

Behind Big Brother reports that the flailing reality show has been axed by Ten and won’t return to the network in 2009. I briefly considered adding a brief “This is so sad” or maybe a “What a shock this is!”, but – much like Big Brother viewers – couldn’t muster up the enthusiasm.


Reality TV embraces the elderly [Big Brother]

Posted in Australiana, Big Brother, news, North Americana on July 8, 2008 by jetsamjr

What a proud moment it was for Australian reality TV when, earlier this year, Big Brother introduced our oldest-ever housemate: 52-year-old grandmother (and probable victor) Terri. Unfortunately the Americans have bested us by announcing a 75-year-old great-grandfather will compete in the next US series, proving that there’s nothing they can’t do bigger and better in the States.


I think she wants a cookie [Big Brother]

Posted in Big Brother, Britannia, hee! on June 28, 2008 by jetsamjr

While Big Brother Australia has housemates who sexually abuse one another (sigh), Big Brother UK has housemates who really want cookies and might be literally retarded:

Meanwhile, is that the narrator’s actual accent? Because it sounds super annoying.
