Beautiful people bitching and moaning at each other

August 23, 2007

News has reached BMTV heights of a new Channel 4 reality TV show whereby ten uber beautiful people live in a house together, and then get voted out once someone even more attractive than them shows up. The show, named Vanity Lair (see what they did there?) is set to “challenge the viewer’s notions of what constitutes being attractive, whether it be based on looks, humour or charm” say the makers. Plus it’ll give something those missing Shipwrecked something to pleasure themselves over of a Sunday avo.

The show is hosted by Alexa Chung (she of Popworld fame) who, although she used to be a model isn’t looking that fair these days, imo. Oh, and get this: Channel from BB8 is set to make an appearance… Hmmmm.

Not sure quite how I feel about this. I’m torn between really enjoying watching incredibly arrogant, stupidly good looking people bitch and moan and generally tear each other to pieces, and despairing at how much lower TV can sink… But instead of giving any kind of social comment (can’t be arsed, sorry), I’m inviting y’all to come up with your own magazine/TV show hybrids.

Ideas so far…
New Woman
A make-over show that really pushes the boundaries. Not only do stylists and plastic surgeons work their magic, but hypnotherapists and witness protection people do their thang to create a totally new woman.


One person in a 2-way mirrored room with just a chair and a toilet for company. We stream in weird noises and force them to watch strange images until they go mad.

New Yorker

Someone from NY in a room, talking about stuff.

Elle Decoration

Two French ladies compete to re-decorate a different room. We vote the winner.

The Word

Basically Big Brother scenario, except we choose a certain word that, once uttered by a housemate, results in terrible consequences. The word changes each day/week.

(I’m actually beginning to think these aren’t bad ideas you know. There’s deffo something wrong in the world).

    Nuts is a definite goer – but remove the chair. And the toliet. And make the person naked. And put retractable spikes in the floor.

    Ooooh you’re evil!

    Maybe a nagging mother in law too. And his/her boss.
