Happy David’s Dead Day!

By | January 11, 2020

Not only is it Wie Is De Mol premiere day, but it’s also the anniversary of the greatest reality TV moment of all time. Comedy = tragedy + not much time.

    Probably the greatest reality TV moment ever for me. The bit where the actually go check the bed is *chef’s kiss*

      It’s just incredible, in that you can understand everyone’s reasoning for reacting the way they do, but also that anyone could correct the misunderstanding that’s occurred and nobody thinks to. And at no point does Tiffany think that if somebody had died on a reality TV show, the filming wouldn’t just carry on as normal.

      It’s the sort of thing people say you “couldn’t script”, well you could, but it’d be rejected for being too farcial.

      In many ways that series was a high Celeb BB could probably never again capture.

        It’s such a perfect storm of misunderstandings that I don’t think we will ever see again. A lot of people liked to bash Big Brother as a load of idiots not doing much, but that’s part of the appeal of it, it leads to amazing moments like this that you just wouldn’t get if any of the housemates were intelligent.

    Unrelated: a nostalgia podcast I listen to, on which guests talk about things they remember which nobody else seems to, had a guest a while ago that made a remarkable claim that a popular UK quiz show briefly made, or at least trialled, spin-off confectionery in the mid-’90s. I’m not going to identify the podcast or the confectionery yet so as not to lead the witnesses, but does anybody remember (or, better still, provide evidence for) such confectionery?

    I’d be interested in UK game show spin-off confectionery in general; the only example that springs to mind straight away is I’m A Celebrity!s spin-off bush tucker trial chocolates which may not be what they seem. Sadly there’s no evidence to suggest that Donny Osmond’s Pyramid revival ever led to a Pyramint revival, but it’s nice to imagine.
