Born Dull?! Big Brother house

They say variety is the spice of life. That is certainly true of the Big Brother house, in which the crazy mix of people makes the series strangely compelling and addictive. The subliminal advertising for the series is already in full swing.

So that got us thinking. If you could put anyone in the big brother house who would it be?

After much consideration and heated debate, the Born Dull?! team came up with their fantasy Big Brother contestants. For our choice read on - but we'd love to hear who you would put in the house.

Who would wind up who?

My nomination would be...

....all the behind the scenes people who do work for Channel 4 in the vain hope that we wouldn't have this rubbish inflicted on our society for the whole summer.

Before anyone mentions the off switch or changing channels, the rest of the media will be delighted to jump on the Big Brother bandwagon instead of thinking and working themselves.

In the House

Fantasy World

How about Gordon Brown?

He drafts all his legislation from his present 'unreal world', so being in another fantasy climate should provide him with lots of new convoluted ideas to confuse us with next year!

I nominate George W. Bush...

...this is surely a lot safer than letting him continue to rule the "free" world!

Lowering the tone

Helen Crowley | | Permalink

I think that there probably isn't much point in putting nice, intelligent, sensible people in there! The good bits aren't the conversations but the rows, the gossip and the bad behaviour!That's what makes big brother.
So just to lower the tone completely how about

Victoria Beckham (bun fight potential)
Rebecca Loos (see above)
Brad Pitt (for the ladies to oggle)
Tom Cruise (as above)
Derren Brown (to play mind tricks on them all)
Jean Christophe Novelli (talented chef in lots of ways!)
Mary Whitehouse (always outspoken)
Robbie Williams (wants to entertain us)
Angelina Jolie (wildchild and only fair for the menfolk to have something to oggle too)
Davina McColl (so that they have to find a different presenter)

lets make things interesting

the press has speculated that this is the year big brother goes european and everyone gets naked and 'gets down'. Hence my choices:

jenna jameson
that famous dwarf pornstar
pamela anderson
borris becker

with a guest appearance from vlad the impaler

i think that would give the secretly perverted british public exactly what they want.

I nominate Ghandi

I would nominate Ghandi, because when you were doing challenges to win more food/supplies, he would be willing to sacrifice his ration for the greater good. Very noble.

the point is missed

PCG Presidente
