Canberra In Autumn Samuel’s Footy Tips

No, I am not going on Big Brother

April 21st, 2006 at 12:17am

I don’t know where the rumor came from, but I do not have any intention of having any part in the strange television show Big Brother.

I have seen bits of it, usually the last five or ten minutes of an episode while I wait for the next show to start, sometimes this is due to a show finishing early on another channel, but usually it is due to Big Brother running beyond the advertised starting time of the next programme.

The thing that makes the notion of me being on Big Brother quite amusing, other than the fact I find the show to be quite obnoxious, is that I don’t even know how people get on the show. I gather that there is a nomination process or something like that, but how does it work? Do people ask to be on it? Or do other people nominate them to be on it?

Regardless of how it works, I am not going on it, and I have not been contacted by anybody involved with the production of it.

To those of you who have come here from the “Behind Big Brother” website, welcome. It is obvious that a number of you think Samuel’s Persiflage is boring…that’s fine, I think Big Brother is boring. I will be contacting your site administrators to have my copyrighted photo removed.

    A warm welcome to all. I would rather listen to Samuel’s Persiflage any day than watch Big Brother.

    People who use copyrighted photographs should get big rocks and drop them on their heads!

    Im glad that you are dissasociating yourself from such a show Samuel.

    I think a big “asteroid” sized rock should be dropped on the Big Brother House just after entry by the “housemates”.

    I seem to recall giving you permission to use it…or was going to and forgot to say so.
