Looking back at old TV-concepts which changed the media

My son came to me and told me that they had found a poster in downtown Horsens about something called “Big Brother”. Then I had to explain to him when Jildo won the first danish version of Big Brother back in 2001. Yes, years has past but the nickname Jildo the winner had will never be forgotten. It was in fact a combination of her real name and a tool for women who finds more fun in this tool than a partner which is OK for me.

Also the first season was marked when 3 participants walked out. A talented singer who since became a washed-up wannebe singer you very seldom hear anywhere but his partipation allowed him to stay in the dreamworld of being a singer because everyone still wants to see the man who walked out. There was also wannebe therapist who today is mostly known to have been a girlfriend to a member of one of the bikergangs who shoots at each other making the streets of Denmark a dangerous place to be.

Back then it was a big game changer in reality Television. Today it will not be broadcasted as the viewers have moved on.

Now they are thinking of making a Danish version of “Ex on the Beach”. I do not know if it will be a success. We do not have a Turn-about Ranch in Denmark anymore where the teenagers can be tortured to become extreme like Jemma Lucy. Solhaven was closed down by the authorities and I doubt that some of the former victims are able to be on television.

I do find that the world of reality television is boring. Real documentaries showing how ordinary people really live like “På Røven i Nakskov” and Buckwild are far more interesting. While I intend to live the rest of my life here around Horsens, it is not bad to observe how people live in other places. I will never visit Lolland or West Virginia but these documentaries have given me an insight in other cultures. That is far more interesting compared to observe an artificial setup.
