Celebrity Big Brother 2 - Our Conclusion

Boy bands. What do they all have in common? Answer: Kens!

Ugh, we hear you mumble? Well, think about 90's boy band East 17: You had Brian Harvey, Tony Mortimer and um, two other blokes.

Now, think about Boyzone and you had Ronan Keating, Stephen Gately and erm, three other blokes. The point is, the average person has no idea who those 'other blokes' are.

They are not the best performers, they're certainly not the prettiest band members, so what do they do?

They are there just to make up the numbers it seems and, seeing as we don't know their names, we like to call them Ken (thanks to 'Viz', who christened 'the other bloke who wasn't Matt or Luke from Bros' Ken!).

The problem is, too many Kens simply doesn't work and we wonder whether Celebrity Big Brother 2 has suffered from this problem, namely not enough performers.

Remembering the original Celebrity Big Brother last year, we recall how Chris Eubank was fascinating to watch and how we hung on to his every lisped word, however ridiculous the conversation! A real eccentric character.

Then there was Vanessa Feltz, who quickly went stir crazy, scribbled a load of big words on the table and told Big Bro in no uncertain terms where to go. The nutter!

And of course, how could we forget the antics of original CBB series Winner Jack Dee? The grumpy comedian's antics began when he nicked a screwdriver right at the start of the series and tried to take the loo ceiling apart. He later made an escape from the house with his face all camouflaged up!

CBB2, however, was rather less eventful.

Sure, it was very interesting if you watched enough of it, but there lies the problem: that the majority of people don't have access to e4 or simply can't stay-up watching TV / the 'net until 3am.

Rather than 'antics', the emphasis this time around seemed to be on 'conversations', but that doesn't necessarily make for the best Big Brother viewing, particularly when the housemates are celebs. Even then, some might say that this bunch didn't really give enough away about themselves?

Of course, the show did have it's moments, but we fans did exactly what we did last time and voted-out the most controversial character straight away (Chris/Goldie); something we managed to avoid doing throughout BB3 luckily (Jade).

That said, we can honestly say that here at BBO, we've enjoyed the series and have had some laughs; we know that a lot of you have also enjoyed following the lives of Sue, Les, Mel, Goldie, Anne and Mark for the past ten days.

However, although Big Brother fans usually take a while to get used to new contestants and ideas (like the highly successful but originally disliked rich/poor divide during BB3), we're aware that some fans wanted more from the show and got bored as time went on.

The virtual appearance of tumbleweed in our normally-buzzing Discussion Forums during the show was a bit of a shock and served as testament to the general lack of interest/ things to say.

Still, all that said, viewing figures have been very good and the final eviction show was watched by upto 44% of the viewing population. More importantly, a shed-load of money was raised for charity and that, after all, is the name of the game for Celebrity Big Brother.

So to that end, it must be considered a success and we think the contestants have done a great job. You have to hand it them as, supposed C-List or not, they have much more to lose than any non-famous Big Brother contestants.

Finally, thanks for sticking with Big Brother Online throughout this special series. We won't recap on all the Celebrity Big Brother 2 happenings here as you can always re-read our 100-or-so stories for that.

See you again soon and don't forget that we'll continue to update our usual 'Latest News' section from now on, available via our Home page.

PS. Note to Channel 4: Can we have less Kens and more Jonny Vegas or Jonathan Ross type characters next time please? i.e. mouthy gits!
