Dirk Benedict in Celebrity Big Brother

OK, I'll admit I watched the first episode of the new Celebrity Big Brother. Admittedly it was whilst I was cooking and having dinner and I'm not sure if I'll watch it again but - Dirk Benedict (Face from The A-Team and Starbuck from the original Battlestar Galactica) is on it! That was a surprise! God knows how he'll do! :p

I'm not sure of the mix of characters they have on this year. I'll admit to not being the most celebrity-minded person at the best of times so don't really know how they'll all get along or what to expect. I suspect my main exposure for the program will be through the bits of 'news' I get in the tabloids if I flick through them at a cafe or the 'internet headlines' when I go to log in to my mail server.

Still, the contestants this year are:

Jermaine Jackson (formerly of The Jackson Five)
Danielle Lloyd (Glamour Model and former Miss Great Britain)
Ken Russell (Film Maker)
Jo O'Meara (ex-singer from S Club 7)
Leo Sayer (Singer)
Shilpa Shetty (Bollywood Actress)
Carole Malone (Sunday Mirror Columnist)
Donny Tourette (Singer of Punk Group 'Towers of London')
Ian "H" Watkins (ex-singer from Steps)
Cleo Rocos (Actress, Writer and Comedian)
Dirk Benedict (Actor)

So again a load of down and outs who can't get a paid job these days?

And H is apparently gay. I would never have guessed that.

I was so saved from this by Kyle wanting to watch 'World's Strongest Man' on the other side!

Dirk Benedict is a pretty cool guy. Met him at a con once, the autograph table he was at had slowed down a lot and another con event just started so there was nobody there waiting. A friend had asked me to get his autograph if I could so I walk on up. He looks up at me as I get near smiles and goes "You remember me! I used to be famous!"

That was damn funny. Ended up talking to him for fifteen minutes or so. Really down to earth guy.

I'll confess
I watched it too.

My name is Ravenrigan and I'm a Big Brother Addict.

I particularly enjoy the bit on Celebrity BB where they introduce themselves. Very few of them have the balls to ask "Err, excuse me, but who are you and what are you famous for?" and even fewer have the good manners to go "I'm Ken, I'm an old film director" or some such. So all the enlarged Egos slowly come to the awful realisation that most of the others have NO IDEA who they are, care even less, and are busy plotting how to become centre stage themselves, now that they are not the centre of attention in their own little worlds any more.

I just love the stunned looks on their little faces as it slowly dawns on them!
