Big Brother Epitaph: ‘You Know What Your Claim To Fame Is? This. Good For You’

by | 21st, August 2010

BIG Brother waved goodbye to Frank Spencer look-alike John James, Sam Pepper, that walking rash of a demented mating between Sue Perkins and David Baddiel, Lorraine Chase lite Corin Forshaw, someone called Jo Butler, and no–feet, one-eyed former soldier Steve Gill, who was once a shoo-in to win the show. For you there is one-way trip the EU Celebrity Mountain in a silo near Brussels.

For Andrew, Dave, JJ, Josie and Mario there is stay of execution. One of them will win the show on Tuesday night. Yeah, Tuesday night, that TV dead zone, where the best thing on the magic box is the DVD you didn’t return from the weekend.

Big Brother knows the game is up. A cull of four housemates and not a whisper of it on the cover of the Daily Star, once self-billed as the Official Big Brother newspaper. Still, there will be a winner, who will hold the title in perpetuity – to carry to their grave.

Their epitaph, and indeed that for the entire show, is delivered by the mouth of Shilpa Shetty, as she told Jade Goody:

“You know what your claim to fame is? This. Good for you.”
