The only hope to 20-something's wanting to prove to the rest of the country that their ego is bigger than everyone else's, in order to bring fame and fortune to their otherwise hopeless lives (with the exception of Pop Idol and X-Factor). In the big brother house, the problems occur when these people realise they are not being noticed and, as a result, have to make a point of this by shouting, screaming, wailing, yelling and getting as drunk as possible in order to try and convince people they are 'really entertaining'. As a result, the public decides to vote them out, meaning that when they face eviction they begin to make out they had already planned to walk out anyway, and that they felt that they had already had enough of living with people they just don't get on with.
Big brother is portrayed as a reality tv show when, in reality, it is not. Free food, free drinks (including alcohol), shelter, no need to work, housemates you don't like (but still want to f***) and regular silly tasks 24 hours of the day does not sound like reality, unless of course you are an art student at the University of Birmingham. The only time you really feel you are seeing reality is on eviction night, when the housemate faces their partner and finally remembers "oh shit, i wish i didn't do that" and you get a look from their partner that says "you're in for it. just wait 'til we get home..."
