NO Shower-Hour on BBAfrica4

You're never gonna believe this ... there's not gonna be a shower-hour on the new Big Brother!!

It's part of the new season's "Revo-sucks-olution". Call me a perve ( I am !) but it's one of my all-time best things seeing that first shower-hour, poking around who's got what and how big or small they are.

As you probs know, last season they stopped showing the Shower-Hour after complaints (a gazillion slaps to whoever did this!!) and this season they've decided to do without it completely.

I've asked about why specifically but haven't heard official word yet. Will keep you posted when I do but I imagine it has to do with the fiasco that happened last season.

At the time there was the story that the Nigerian government had complained or something, puhlease - as if they did haven't got more important things to do like running a country (duh!) instead of getting involved in making moral decisions about reality TV.

PS (in the middle): ANY policitian who has a view on reality TV has no place being in charge, Gordon Brown does it all the time with the UK's BB too.

The huge thing of NO shower-power is it's BIG Brother - it's what it's all about - to try to pretend it's anything else is beyond ridiculous. It's hardly like the housemates are gonna replace it with conversations that find the solution to world peace or how to keep your socks paired.

ALSO, what's the big deal about naked bodies? It's the whole point of it - everyone has one, it, two, whatever!

SO uncool!

One day I'd like to see these ppl who complain, coz we always hear about them, but do the really exist. It's the same with those that are the reason for SABC1's repeats that are brought back by popular demand, show us the people who demand those repeats. It's all lies I say!

I agree, at some point BBSA has to return. Our constitution allows people to practice whatever sexual orientation and much more. Anyone noticed the country cave in or turning into sodom? Those who are will be, those who are not will not!! Each to his or her own. I cannot defend censorship in an adult show! I manage the little people in my life thru the all powerful decoder. Having said all that, here's to hoping all the usual suspects are revving engines for September!! can't wait for the fun and games on this space, lol

I blame it on Ofuneka! She went and lost her mind on national TV, embarrassed Nigeria. Then they started making all these rules - including banning SHOWER HOUR!

THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE HOUSEMATES IS SOOOO LIMITED THAT THEY CANNOT BE RELIED UPON TO ENTERTAIN US WITH THEIR OPINIONS AND COVERSATIONS..............LET US SEE THEM NAKED, THEN WE MAY WATCH IT 24/7.

THAMI SAID IT TOO WELL, TO RICCO, YES BUT HE MAY HAVE BEEN OUR VOICE SPEAKING TO 10 OF THE 12 HOUSEMATES, "I HAVE BEEN HERE WITH YOU FOR TWO MONTHS AND I AM YET TO HEAR SOMETHING INTELLIGENT COME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH!"

ARE THEY ALLOWED TO WALK AROUND NUDE OR SEMI-NUDE, OR IS NUDITY BANNED ALTOGETHER?

Tashi, this write-up falls way below your usually high standard. You set out to incite people against Nigeria when you wrote that there is no official word yet .Well Beyonce has hit the nail on the head - leave Nigeria out. The aggression  should be directed at Multichoice and not Nigeria. Currently I am on holidays in Nigeria from South Africa. Only a handful of people will miss BigBrother 4 if it is not shown here. It is ridiculous to insinuate that Nigeria is setting the rules for the show. The legislators that represent the people have a right to legislate on what is beamed from South Africa into Nigeria's airspace. Shower hour is not acceptable to the majority of us as a people and Multicoice should leave Nigeria out!!!! Case closed.

Yes dorothy (do u hav red shoes) multichoice can make their own decisions but do they want to alienate half their viewers? So they are kinda being forced. Oh well, the stuff people talk bout and do in that house is so much worse than shower hour anyway!

@dorothy777... i was visiting this board, which is essentially Nigerian and the posters there were all ecstatic that there was gonna be no shower hour on bba4.
i mean they went on to lambast one of the posters as unpatriotic coz he/she dared suggest no shower hour would kill the show.

actually the Nigerian government lobbied Multichoice to drop shower hour and their MInister of some fucking ministry actually quoted the Offuneka incident as the reason why they made such a move.

and Nigeria actually has a big vote in Dstv viewership that Multichoice would feel pressured to acknowledge their concerns.

actually dorothy777... tashi set out to post an unbiased opinion....and again, the majority of us actually love shower hour.

paralyzer........i agree with u....

and its true, even when shower hour was there, in all these bba's, i never made a point of waiting for it to watch it, after the first few days, the excitement actuall wears off.

actually, pple in Nigeria will have to request to watch the show in writing, either by sms or e-mail...even if they have subscribed.
what kind if shit is that?

just goes to show Africa, insead of dealing with inherent problems of crime, corruption, hunger, HIV, poverty and prostitution you have to go and all mortalistic and set up committees to discus Television!!!!
