Popular Dutch Reality Show Should Be Picked Up By Australia

I know after the first season of The X Factor not rating as well as they wanted it to in Australia, that production companies may be shy about wanting to pitch another one, however The Voice from The Netherlands sounds very interesting.

The Voice produced by Endermol has been the most watched show in Holland ever. It has similarities of the The X Factor and Idol where there are four judges and they mentor the talent.

However the big difference the judges are blindfolded at the audition stage. Now this would make it very interesting indeed. I think they would need to blindfold the producers as well to ensure it is all about the talent.

There is going to be an American version of the show, but I hope we get out own version of the show.

I note the article also said The Netherlands was the birthplace of reality TV. I wonder how you can check the veracity of this statement, but I am not surprised the Dutch have always been innovative.

I’ve seen a bit of this on Youtube etc, seems like an interesting concept. It’d also get me on your blog more, seeing as music reality shows are pretty much the only ones I watch. 😛

Speaking of foreign shows – last night was the Greek version of ‘come dine with me’. OMG – the food was sooooooo stodgy. Unbelievable.

The main was a casserole of meat chunks, potatoes and cheese chunks. No actual veg at all. Followed up with a super stodgy chestnut cake.

It was a good show. Slightley hard for captions to cope with the voiceovers by participants not on screen, but I got used to it.

Kenobi – anything to get you on my blog is a good thing. I hope they make it. I like the fact the looks won’t come into it. I wonder what this would have meant for India-Rose.

Seepi – Shit, shit, shit, I meant to watch this I will check it out next week. Thanks for the reminder.

The original Big Brother was from the Netherlands, and Joop van der Ende and John de Mol are Dutch (Endemol).
