Is anyone watching the new Big Brother UK?

The show just returned after a 5 year hiatus. There seems to be some gay soap opera going on in there.

Is there a tranny?

by Anonymousreply 1October 23, 2023 7:32 PM

I was so excited when I randomly checked out the BBUK subreddit and learned it was about to start in two weeks' time after such a long hiatus. Was there when it all ended with extremely low ratings and a Tory gay twink winner who now does porn. Watched the first two episodes and decided not to continue, I think I've just grown out of reality shows in general. Still, I check out the official sub every day because I love seeing people bitch about that uberfrau Kerry. The stud of the house, Paul, apparently is a huge homophobe; he actually said it's easier being gay today and that we should hold straight pride parades. Obviously none of this was shown in the main episode.

Matty is so hot, and a doctor to boot! I don't think he'll bother with any of these gays on the outside, they're all 7s and he's like a 9.5 or close to it.

Paul's the worst.

I like Jordan even though he's just SO over everything.

I've been watching it. I've enjoyed how it's not all Instagram influencer wannabes.

Most of them are annoying but from creepy Jordan with his fake accent to Kerry screaming like a banshee. And yet I can't help but watch it every night.

They’re all double baggers.

It's a Gen Z millennial love triangle typical of their generation. So basically, fuglies.

Paul looks like he stinks.

There's a trans, a Muslim make up artist, an over 40 with a disability, a 30 something with a prosthetic, four gays incl a mega fatty, two blacks, an Asian, and there might be a straight white dude.

It's United Colours of Benetton meets Fraggle Rock.

R8 The Muslim make up artist was eliminated in week one, the Asian guy was eliminated in week two.

Also, it's always been pretty diverse. There was a trans contestant in 2004 who won.

by Anonymousreply 9October 26, 2023 9:35 PM

There's an Asian chick still in there.

by Anonymousreply 10October 26, 2023 10:14 PM

The Muslim make-up artist was apparently on Come Dine With Me before this and didn't wear the Muslim garb at all, yet was even sleeping in it in the Big Brother house. I think that's just a function of casting where you need to have that one schtick to get picked. There's one housemate (no idea what his name is) whose intro video was literally just "I have a prosthetic leg with fun LEDs you can change with this remote control". Nothing about his personality, he got cast exclusively because he got into an accident and counts as disabled now.

r9 It's been diverse in the past, but not 70% of the house being POC and gay kind of diverse like this season. I actually don't mind it this way, means we get to see a cringe gay triangle. Imagine something like that a decade ago.

by Anonymousreply 11October 27, 2023 2:45 PM

The cringe gay triangle is hilariously sexless. But still worth following.

[quote]Big Brother's Henry seethes while 'husband' Jordan openly flirts with Matty as awkward love triangle blossoms, leaving fans heartbroken

If I looked like that, I'd be seething at my parents for their terrible genes.

by Anonymousreply 13October 27, 2023 2:51 PM

Yeah, I should revise my previous assessment, Henry and Jordan are both a 6. In the real world, they'd rather be single than date each other. And obviously Matty, a 9, needs constant attention, but would never actually speak to either of them on the outside. I think he's just used to guys fawning over him, especially when he reveals that he's a doctor.

[quote]Matty, a 9

Is he? I can't get past the silly mustache.

by Anonymousreply 15October 27, 2023 3:05 PM

The stache and the hair are both terrible, but he has the body and the magnetic sex appeal of a 10 and the face of an 8.5. Taking his profession and subsequent social standing and bank balance into account, I do think he ends up being a 9.

by Anonymousreply 16October 27, 2023 3:14 PM

Matty a 9? Maybe in Helen Keller Land

Is there a fourth gay in the house?

The fat Welsh guy ^^^^^

Paul, when he comes to terms with it. I'm sorry, but I got a gay vibe from that homophobe the second I saw him.

by Anonymousreply 20October 27, 2023 3:49 PM

4 homos and not a top amongst them.

Tops don't often get cast in Big Brother because the casting folk think gay = mincing. Which it often does, but is rarer among tops.

by Anonymousreply 22October 27, 2023 3:59 PM

OK if it’s a bunch of British dudes that are involved I would just fuck all of them. Problem solved. Just run a train on them they are all sexy

by Anonymousreply 23October 27, 2023 5:29 PM

The two 7s finally giving in to cabin fever in the hot tub in the final week of the show, good for them.

The doctor apparently has a boyfriend who lives in the US currently, so he was stringing one of them along just for attention. I hope he doesn't win.

Describing those two as '7s'? Is that a typo R24?

The thinner one looks like that dodgy Romanian who married the elderly gay British vicar.

R27, they'd be 2s on a good day. That day being 'end times'

I've always felt like anything under 5 is reserved for those with a facial deformity of some sort. But, I guess everyone has their own inner scale that works for them.

Those are some ugly dudes.

I watched last night's episode and, while I can't stand Jenkin, he was right in what he said about Jordan probably only initiating the kiss to keep himself in the house.

He'd been saying he had no romantic interest in Henry for weeks and then kisses him out of the blue, knowing full well Henry would reciprocate because he's smitten.

I hate people who play with emotions like that. I know it's a game show, but they're still real people and if Jordan plays the "we were just having a laugh, Henry knows I'm not interested" card that would be a dick move. Though Jordan is calculating enough to only play that card after leaving the house.

by Anonymousreply 31November 14, 2023 11:27 AM

I read Henry has replaced Yinrun as the fave to win with the bookies for the first time, so I guess it worked.

Aren't they both posh Tory twats? Or is that just Jordan? I know one of them is a Boris Johnson superfan.

by Anonymousreply 32November 14, 2023 11:35 AM

R32, it's hard to distinguish between those two Tory gays. One is more rotund, that's about it.

by Anonymousreply 33November 14, 2023 6:45 PM

Guess I'm the only one who likes the "Tory gays." I do think Henry overstated his support for the Tories, everyone has a schtick on these shows.

by Anonymousreply 34November 15, 2023 11:15 AM

I do find him relatable as someone who also speaks in a posh English accent that I taught myself as a kid. People sometimes ask me why, at which point I switch to Melania's accent and I'm like, pick your poison.

If it’s a choice between antisemitic Labour and the Tories, I’ll go with the Tories. At least they know what a woman is.

Matty’s boyfriend is smoking hot. Here are some pix of them together.

Why would he want Jordan?

Would they fuck Nicolas Fairford though? He's the go-to faggy bottom for faggy bottom Tories.

Well, someone was evicted tonight. We won’t find out who it was until tomorrow, although it’s already leaked via the live feed. Said person was announced as evicted through a letter - the housemates had to read letters to each other from friends and family. Said housemate’s letter said that they were evicted. Brutal. The final is Friday.

I hate that ITV isn’t doing live evictions so many times. Even the laugh night wasn’t live. It was shot the day before.

by Anonymousreply 39November 16, 2023 2:48 AM

I want Henry to win because I'm afraid he'll get his heart broken after filming ends.

by Anonymousreply 40November 17, 2023 8:37 PM

So, one of the gays won?

The first gay guy won since... well, since the last season of Big Brother UK. Although, the fact that two Tory-presenting gays in a row have now won is quite peculiar. I think people are treating them as performing monkeys more than anything. The quasi-aspie angle might have played a part as well.

Matty looks so much better with shorter hair, but that stache has got to go.
