      This seems like a bad idea to me :crap: also sounds to me like they are trying to go the same way Big Brother has said they are going, but 24 hour access to alcohol on a reality TV show that many watch from a young age surely this isn't going to be great for alcohol awareness.

      Surely the very fact they have to resort to such things shows that the show has passed its time?

      Sure does, it's like they are now fighting for ideas which is a shame and especially if they have to resort to alcohol to keep things entertaining, it's the same with Big Brother they have put in place 24 hour alcohol admittedly I will agree on Big Brother they do need to complete tasks to gain that alcohol but still it's not a good thing to be promoting on 2 big TV shows watched by many of all ages.

      :lol: I know that was shocking however maybe if she did less dancing and more singing it may work but her accent really doesn't work with the singing at the moment.
