Celebrity Big Brother. [Jan. 4th, 2010|12:56 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Eleven housemates. One I've heard of that Julia hasn't, one Julia's heard of that I haven't, two we've both heard of, and seven people we don't recognise at all.

So since it's not fair rooting for someone that neither of us know, she's supporting Stephanie Beacham and I'm supporting Vinnie Jones. For values of "supporting" which include "hearing about it later and thinking is that thing still on?".

I'm frightened.

I've heard of Stephen Baldwin, Sisqo, Heidi Fleiss, Katia Ivanova, Stephanie Beecham, Basshunter (Anna is a Bot is a fantastic song, that got turned into "Now You're Gone" last year), Vinnie Jones and even Dane Bowers and Jordan's current cagefighter/cross-dresser Alex (though I wouldn't have recognised him), I only didn't know Lady Sovereign (I wondered if she was this season's Chantelle) and Nicola (page 3 model), so that's nine out of eleven I'd heard of.

One of those is almost "friend of a friend" status.

...But oddly not through any of the tranny friends.

I'd heard of Vinnie Jones, Stephanie Beecham, Heidi Fleiss (although I wouldn't be able to pick her out of a line-up), and was aware that there was more than one acting Baldwin. The rest of them have failed to impinge on my world in any way.

You've saved me typing all that, I am in exactly the same boat. John wasn't aware of Heidi Fleiss, although I'm sure he must have heard the news reports at the time.

I second D&J's definition of "supporting", and my money's on Vinnie, especially if it comes down to a fight.

Helpfully, she's always referred to as "Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss" otherwise I'm not sure I'd be readily able to pinpoint exactly why I'd vaguely heard of her.

I had actually heard of them all - which proves how sad I really am!!!

Obviously the bit I am intreged about is that it has been mentioned that 2 are gay!!! Hmmmm!!! Sov and wither Jonus or Sisqo is my guess!

I hadn't heard of Dane Bowers, Nicola T, Lady Sovereign, or Sisqo. Still, I was surprised (and faintly embarrassed) that I'd heard of so many of them. I put it down to reading the Guilty Pleasures pages of the Metro.

I would rather gouge my eyes out with a spork than watch the show, this post is about as much thinking about the programme as I will do.

I know who Heidi Fleiss, Stephanie Beecham and Vinny Jones are.
I heard about the cross dressing cage fighter taking on a homophobic idiot, but wouldn't know what his name was.
I have heard of Sisqo but don't know any of his music (if someone said his name, my head would come up, because of Sisko in DS9, obviously. Mmm, Sisko... sorry what was I saying?

Of course, when Doug changed to that channel "just to see" I groaned and moaned and suffered. We watched 2 unheard of (by me) wannabe in the limelight non-celebrities go in the house and then changed channels. Doug looked up the list later. I am a purely innocent passive party in this situation. I have never watched BB,and avoid it at all costs.

So there.

Watched a bit of the highlight show this morning over breakfast and only heard of Stephanie Beacham and Vinnie Jones.

Nice set this year, very plush.
