so wrong, but i would also blatantly watch it.
I thought it was a thread for everyone who wasn't going tonight.

after work project.

"Those who take part are considered odd or bizarre for wanting to do so, but they are merely products of a society that now holds fame above anything else. All cultural reference points are now rooted in being a celebrity, and not attached to having an intrinsic skill."
Says it all. The people who applied for this have no moral compass, nothing but a lust for fame over everyhting else. They are worse than fucking junckies.

it's the only really specific reason i can think of. he could have seen it as BB provoking people and taking it too far, blah blah blah blah blah...
I saw a programme on this on bbc 3 yesterday, the guy seemed really guilty when he thought it had got out of his control and that the show would be made, but all it would take would be for someone to copy it now they know it would be a sucess.
