Celebrity Big Brother
The premiere of Celebrity Big Brother started last night. I had already written this show off before it began, although I think I may have been a little hasty in my judgement. I still don't think it will be much hat, but I'm willing to give it a go and time will tell. Here's a run-down of the third-rate celebs in the house.
  • Anthony Mundeen - This rugby-come-boxing champ is a bit of a wildcard I think. He really stands out like dogs balls against the other flamboyant housemates, especially the she-male, Vanessa Wagner, whom I can see that Anthony is really trying hard to get along with, although I'm sure he wouldn't under ordinary circumstances.
  • Vanessa Wagner - Alterego of performer Tobin Saunders is really a bit of a mixed bag. We're getting two people/genders in one which I think will make for some good interaction and interesting conversation.
  • Kimberly Cooper - Kimberly played Gypsy on Home and Away. I never watch Home and Away, so that's about all I know about her. She seems paretty interesting though; a bit of fun. She stayed up with Kyle to watch the sun rise on the first night, so I can imagine that they'll get along pretty well.
  • Kyle Sandilands - Being on metro radio, I don't know a lot about him or his radio show with Jackie O, the Hot Countdown. Although we do get a condensed snippet of the show on the weekends here, and he sounds like a pretty cool kinda bloke. Being a DJ, I'm sure he'll be able to keep conversation going in the house.
  • Adriana Xenides - Oh my God. I'd heard that she'd had a little bit of plastic surgery, but I didn't know that she'd turned into Zsa Zsa Gabor! Appearance and non-descript accent aside, the lovely Adriana who made her celebrity status by spinning the letters on Wheel of Fortune for eighteen goddamn years, seems a bit of a princess, so I don't know how she'll get a long with the likes of Mundeen and Dylan Lewis.
  • Dylan Lewis - Former "Recovery" host and overall quirky TV presenter, Dylan was great to watch last night. He barely said a word yet managed to steal the show with some well timed crazy faces and general apathy towards his situation. I'm not sure how he will get along with the others, but for Dylan, I don't think that's the point.
  • Imogen Bailey - I'm sure she's quite intellegent, and like she said last night, she's probably worked very had to become the super-sexy model that she is today, but I couldn't help but feel indifferent towards people who become famous for simply being hot. Not that I'm complaining. Hang on a sec. Yes, I AM complaining! Whats the goddamn good of having 16th-sexiest-woman-in-the-world, Imogen Bailey, in the Big Brother house when there's no camera's in the showers? Huh? Yeah... Thought so.
  • Sara-Marie Fedele - Now this is just stupid. The only thing more useless then being in Celebrity Big Brother for being a super sexy model, is being in Celebrity Big Brother because the only reason you ARE a celebrity is because you were in Big Brother. To me, that just kind of defeats the purpose. Nuff said.
Well, there's your eight "celebrities". I don't think this show will have as many viewers as regular BB, but it is for charity, and it might prove to be a bit of fun in the end, so I'm not complaining just yet.
