Personal Quote:

The more channels we get the more hours there are to fill so you get more reality shows. I hate things like Big Brother (2000). They're out of date and a waste of time on the part of people in the show and of the viewers. Life's too short to be watching that. If you see me on one of those shows you'll know I've lost the plot.
