Catch Up: With KB

What KB really thinks of Big Brother housemates

Last week I caught up with KB at the announcement of Channel O's 2009  Award nominees and had an excellent chuckle.

When Big Brother's on there are always so many housemates to smack and KB's always so busy I never get a chance to chat to him properly.

As soon as I spotted him I scooched over to find out what he's up to - obviously trying to trick him into spilling whether he'll be back for Big Brother 4: Da Revolusssssion (said with a French-type accent, spelling impossible.)

My best thing about him hosting the show is that he always had so much to say about the housemates - even when he didn't say it.

My highlight of the endlessly yawny eviction shows (bring on the Revolution pleeease!) was always the moment the housemate arrived and KB clapped eyes on them - ....

-  the look he gave afterwards was hysterical - like you just knew exactly what he was thinking and he knew we-knew too type thing.

The latest on it all is that he hasn't heard whether or not he'll be hosting yet. From what he had to say he's anticipating that they may go with someone else - 'cos of the whole "it's all so revolutionary even though there's been a million seasons"- angle.

My thinking is that if he hosted it would still be a revolution with everything else that's planned - I don't want to have to get used to someone else. We know him so well now and also, he was fab - if you think about how he was never the focus of things - yet so present and aware of exactly what was going on in the house.

Also, he's himself always - I've never seen or heard him on radio being anything other than cool and funny in whatever he's talking about.

My vote goes to him mos def!

A bathong! moment with Nonhle Thema

In the meantime he's off to Jamaica this week to film a new show that's a follow-up to the series One Drop. He'll be hanging out with local muso's to find out what's happening in da jah-scene. Apparently everyone smokes dweeb wherever you go there so I asked: "Will you be too?"

His reply:"I would - if I smoked!"

(PS, sidenote: I used to have Rastafarian as my religion on Facebook, until I realised that people might not take me seriously. I have noo idea what that means nor whether I'm actually Rastafarian but hopefully you'll know what I mean even if I don't!)

Errrrrr Tash, what's that on your PS? Confused.

AS for KB, he's one of those people you either love, hate or don't know. I love him on the radio cause he sounds like he's having MAD fun and consistently so.

>>Errrrrr Tash, what's that on your PS? Confused.<< Me too Tox! I think it symbolises my confusion about religion generally.

>>he sounds like he's having MAD fun and consistently so.<<

He does, you never get the sense that he's in variable moods, he's really good company on radio.

KB's definitely not coming back as host. They are getting a Nigerian to host the show. Or so I've heard.

Mwaaaah KB!

and don't be surprised if  Thomas hosting it this year...i think he'd be super great for the show!

Well KB on the radio irritates me endlessly.

As Toxic says - you either love him or hate him.

I so love KB on BB...I am a bit worried too in case the nigerian Brown Shuga is mentioning might be a total bore with no energy...It will really kill BB.
