Not sure I'll bother with the rest of this series, it's so formulaic and stale. Has been for years but getting tired of it now

Where's the totty too?

Dunno anyone's name but the annoying City boy who earns £200k a year (wink) is going to be entertaining I reckon. For being a pompous twat

Are twats really entertaining, though? Watching everyone's introduction and just thinking "man they're all bellends" should surely be a turn-off, right? So far the only personalities are total absolute melters (was hoping Charles would go in the first episode, too. Just shut up for a second). I don't understand how that's good TV. Shows where there's a winner at the end surely need to give you some decent characters to root for, rather than a whole horde of dickheads in ill-fitting glasses. Maybe in the next episode someone will actually turn out to not be a prat.

The only way it'd be a good show to watch would be if they did a "where are they now" style episode a year down the line where it turns out that all of their businesses have folded after people realised they were all wankers and they're all collectively working in Primark. Television needs to stop giving imbeciles, and people who seem to take pride in being an arrogant tosspot ("do nice guys earn £200k?") airtime.

(Also is Faffling actually a word? Someone should tell her)

The thing with this show is that they are probably contractually obliged to act like banana splits or they don’t get on the show. It’s just another exploitative reality tv show like the rest.

For me it's the same as every year. All insufferable banana splits to start, but as you see them more and more one or two of them start to become bearable.

It's down to the editing as well. There's just too many at the start to get to know them in any kind of meaningful way so they only show you the biggest twats.

First week is always peak twat as well since they don't know each other yet and all act up accordingly.

Just watched episode 1 - not a single looker, maximum disappointment.

They’re all pretty unlikable, which is quite impressive considering the limited screen time they each got.
