Big Brother Africa Recycled

Posted: July 27, 2010 in Uncategorized

In this era of everything going green, Big Brother Africa has decided not to be left out. Yep, BBA has  gone green- offering $200,000 (two hundred thousand dollars) to a set of recycled contestants. (Hey BB, when the West started campaigning for a green world, we are so sure this was not what they had in mind!)

Stars of the infamous BBA 2 that pitted The Untouchables against The Big Five and saw Richard almost ruin his marriage.

When BBA went for its fourth season, they decided to try and erase the disastrous events in the second season (Richard’s controversial affair with Tatiana, Richard’s felonious act on Ofunneka, Richard eventually winning the show in spite of all these etc) and the poor ratings in the third season by calling the show- Big Brother Africa The Revolution. Apart from the large ensemble, there was nothing really revolutionary about that episode. Oh yes, there was! A Nigerian won to make up for the diss (according to rumours and conspiracy theorists) and there were twins (Yay!?)

Guys from the fourth season of Big Brother Africa, "The Revolution".

Now the producers have put their dumb thinking cap again to come up with and present us with ALL STARS.

Mwisho said it for all of us when he called the entire “new” housemates, himself included, a bunch of losers (no, seriously. They all lost out in the previous seasons.) This season gives them another chance at the money and us another view of the same old *ish*, in the same old setting and probably with the same old chaotic results, except that one of the losers would become a winner this time around.

But really, what were they doing all this time, especially old hands like Mwisho and Sammie? Couldn’t they capitalise on the 15minutes of fame they got to make much more than $200k in their home countries? Did they not have somethinge better to do? And why is Mimi not there? At least she was interesting and  worth seeing again if only to hate her again and hear her say in her accent, “I am not hangry.”  (Obviously, she is not.) And Tati? What is she doing there? Wasn’t she like a supermodel in her country and according to her, a mega-star that gets to travel around the world?

BB really needs to get more revolutionary than this! Raise your hands, if you were one of those that thought that ALL STARS translated into REAL SUPERSTARS.

Guess those ones were busy.

The losers stars did not waste any time in getting down to keeping it real and BB has not failed to deliver on the controversies. Knowing that the guys would have learned their lessons from previous showings and now try to keep it safe by avoding things like sexual scandals and unneccessary temper tantrums (well, all except maybe Meryl who didn’t get enough of the action the last time and has obviously not been tamed enough.) BB to avoid a boring show instigated his or is it her own chaos by denyiny the housemates food which led to some serious palaver. There was a kidnap, make that kidnaps. (Did I hear you say “Blame it on the Nigerian.”)

Pish!, Anyway, entertainment is entertainment and stars or not it is BB afterall where we get to see desperate people make asses of themselves for money and our entertainment.

Kind of like real life but more interesting.
