Your conclusion is well-founded.

I am. Bloody horrible isn't it? That surgeon bloke who had had it all done was terrifying.
he was, wasn't he?

that eye thing she had done looked terrifying. imagine having your eyelids lasered!

And then crying tears of blood. I never knew some of that stuff took so long to heal, either, I thought it was supposed to clear up fairly quickly. Yeah, she looked better at the end. But not THAT much better!

definitely not that much better! to be honest, she looked pretty decent at the start anyway. the only things that made her look older were the bags under her eyes, and so fucking what? i'm still feeling a bit creeped out by the whole thing, actually.

Unfortunately, I find I am very attracted to Slade from "Date My Ex," "Joe and Slade: The Breakup" and "Real Housewives of Orange County."

There he is with girlfriend/co-star/fellow fame whore Jo. I can't find a good picture, but on TV he's got the perfect amount of crow's feet and grey hairs and I am ALL ABOUT hot fortysomething dudes.

I feel really gross about this.

I know it's an easy target, but Top Gear is fucking vile.

Clarkson seems to be increasingly marginalising himself.

How do you mean? Obviously I haven't watched it in about 15 years.

Just by generally getting more extreme with his views in an attempt to be funny. It's like when a band releases their 7th album and everyone says they sound more like a parody of their earlier work.

Has there been a worse programme made than 'Secret Millionaire? I don't think so...

That Mutual Friends thing has got Sarah Alexander AND Keeley Hawes in, two ladies I've always aspired to having sex with but never actually have

why does the bald guy on masterchef never wear a t-shirt beneath his jumper. it irrationally infuriates me every time.

Do the two judges actually speak to each other when they're talking about the contestants? It's just a series of clips edited together. I reckon they just filmed a load of generic cookery comments at the start of the season and pick the most relevent ones.

They shout a lot, don't they? Also, I can't stand how the bald one eats. You don't swallow something professionally, you cunt. You just swallow it.

that bald one is just some fat bloke isn't he? they've given him about a million very vague titles. 'ingredients expert' 'food expert' 'food writer' and 'courgette mailing list admin' being some.

You'd hope he'd be an ingredients expert, wouldn't you?

He reminds me of a regional news sports presenter.

he's no dennis coath.

i once read book by east midlands today sports news presenter by denis coath. it was a work of fiction about a cricket team on tour. one of the characters couldn't stop wanking. it always baffles me as to why it didn't win that years booker prize.

Someone on our street in Oxford was on Masterchef (he lost). Still, my parents got to go to their house for a practice dinner, which was nice. Their son went to my school and desperately wanted to be a hairdresser.
