    Our keys look remarkably like TARDIS keys! Does that mean there's a TARDIS hidden in this theatre somewhere?

    *starts looking for the TARDIS*

    So, this house has no running water, but is able to have a rumpus room? I see logic flying out the window!

    Why, thank you, Dalek. And thank you for including the British opening sequence for BB3 (Coincidentally, Jade Goody - who came 3rd in BB3 - is the only housemate in the UK to become a millionnaire).

    Yeah, it's amazing that our Big Brother is a total embarassment compared to the UK version in terms of presentation and production values. Then again your version of Survivor crashed so...

    Many reality shows in the States - such as BB, Survivor, Beauty and the Geek - have the contestants voting themselves off (in order to keep the high-octane contestants in the game for ratings). That leads to competiveness, alliances and whatnot.

    In the UK, it's the audience participation that draws people to reality TV. With the notable exception of "The Mole", most of reality-competion TV is where the public votes who stays and who goes (unless it's been ported from the US, like The Apprentice). Big Brother now is basically a place where idiots looking for their 15 minutes of fame go to get it.

    Yes, only the first and current installments of BBUS have used the original German rules. Big Brother 1 was a pretty big failure on CBS's behalf partly because of the audience voting system. Nobody was watching because all the interesting characters (except Chicken George) were gone in the first few weeks. I think it took the success of American Idol on Fox for them to try it again.

    That being said, the show is still pretty boring in the presentation department. A side effect of Arnold Shapiro taking over as producer for Big Brother 2.

    This is a nice house, a very nice house. However, it needs to be repainted. Let's paint it green!

    Um, well, the thing is... I feel uncomfortable around the word "rumpus". It's definitely not a favourite. If you don't mind, I'll just think of it as Dalek's Happy Fun Evil Room of Torture and Cupcakes... mkay?
    I'd love to join you as I love the colour blue!

    Well it was either the BB Rumpus Room or the BB Romper Room and I don't think you would have liked being stung by Do-bees.

    Weatherman found the Concession Stand! That must from the congealed butter substitute for the popcorn ;)
