Hamish And Andy Rumoured To Be Big Brother Hosts
Even though Big Brother has not been officially confirmed by Channel Nine, rumours continue to swirl.
The latest one is that Hamish and Andy are going to be hosts of the series. Hamish and Andy are contracted to Channel Nine, and ratings of their show Hamish and Andy – Gap Year have not been fabulous. However I cannot comment on the show as I have not seen it.
In a Media Weekweek Podcast I did with Andrew Mercado, James Manning and Brendan Wood, Andrew has proven why he is one of Australia’s TV commentators by speculating that Hamish and Andy may be the hosts. The suggestion was met unenthusiastically for two reason. Firstly we all agreed the host should be a woman. They need to have empathy when the latest evictee hits the stage, as well as having a quick wit.
Also Mercado pointed out that Hamish and Andy have a niche with the Gen Y generation with their brand of humour. But maybe that is the audience they are aiming for.
What do you think do you think about them being hosts?
Channel Nine have a history of stuffing up reality shows, and I am now getting a bit worried about Celebrity Apprentice Australia with news that it will be on weeknights at 7.00pm. If it is 30 minute episodes does this mean the challenge and the boardroom will be on different episodes. The issue is will they be able to maintain the tension?
Shelly Horton a journalist with the Sun Herald who is going to be a judge in one of the challenges, wrote in her column yesterday that the show was going to premiere on Monday 24 October.
