About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

Big Brother or the Golden Cage?

So how many people out there think Big Brother is ridiculous? Who would want to give up 2 to 3 months of their lives for the infinitesimally small chance of a £10000 prize. Well, that's nothing. In Holland, where I currently live, they have a program called De Gouden Kooi, which is translated as The Golden Cage. It was the first reality TV show, and Big Brother is based on its formula. Not particularly groundbreaking, I know, but the difference here is that De Gouden Kooi goes on for 3 years. Yes, that's right, 3 years, 36 months, 1068 days... And the prize?
This Villa
As you can probably see its pretty small villa at that. You do have to question the contestants logic; I sincerely believe that I could make enough money to buy a house in 3 years, without the added bonus of living in the company of at least a couple of people I hate. I suppose that there are some advantages; you get your food and accommodation for 3 years (better than squatting I suppose), and you get to look like a pillock on national TV. Plus, don't forget that you will be a guaranteed Z-list celebrity when you eventually get thrown out. Definately worth it?

I haven't watched the program, given the fact that I understand about 4 words of dutch, but it's hard to imagine the public maintaining their obsession for 3 years, let alone 3 months... I wonder what the contestants are like. At the moment on Big Brother it seems like you have to have some kind of mental disability or dual-personality to be selected, which I find disgusting. I think reality TV has existed for far too long... it was a fad which has somehow survived beyond its time. I hope that the recognized racism in the recent series has finally stuck the knife and ended the public obsession with these supposedly 'ordinary' people.
