They all seem unnaturally happy.
Or they're told to behave that way.
is a total lack of understanding of how probability works
So it's pretty banging, if you can get the time off work.
The producers want them all to get pissed and bond so that they seem matey on the show and build an atmosphere where they actually give a shit.
That's not strictly true. Also,people bond pretty quickly in those situations.
He said they had a decent food and drink allowance in the hotel (maybe he exaggerated it was a free bar). And you're right, it's probably really easy to bond when you're in such a weird new set up. Frankly, I'd be anyone's mate for a half of bitter and a sausage roll.
and noel dresses in a seal costume when not on set. They have to sign confidentiality forms so not many people know about this
*collective groan as £100,000 is revealed*
and the guy said "noel deal"
it got old really quickly. It is a quiz show with no questions, it is just plucking numbers out at random. If I went on it however, I would either totally get in on the drama and be a loved-up douche to everyone, or I would just not give a shit and do all the numbers from 1 to whatever in order. Or take the banker's first offer. Probably the latter as if it is a free bar, I'd be hungover and just want to go home.
Apparently Noel Edmonds doesn't tolerate negativity and there's something quite Cult-like in the way that the contestants are expected to appear happy and positive at all times. There's even a slight terror of being caught being negative near any of the researchers or production team.
Give really involved, pseudo-psychic rationales for your choices and then just pick box number 1.
Repeat this process, picking box number 2, 3, 4, 5 etc.
Making the rationales longer and more involved each time.
Without the pseudo-rationalisation.
even so, the stories would make it.
"Les Dennis can have the big Winnebago when he gets the ratings we get," Noel says.
but it is seriously cringe-worthy how well they all get on. they've all the forced camaderie of a week-long swingers holiday in Magaluf. the one good thing is it will clearly end in a s Jonestown-type scenario.
curse you brain.
spouting some spiritual nonsense.
I thought it was quintessentially British to be a miserable antisocial wretch. what's wrong with these people?
and the fucking probability/logic failing weirdos they have on it
every tiny bit about deal or no deal and noel edmonds
