Make me a supermodel

On channel 5, 8pm approx, every other day; live show on Friday

I’ve been watching most of these programs throughout the series – though I missed the first few; and as it’s the final this week, I thought I’d get my opinions in quickly before it’s too late. Whatever you do guys; do not vote for marianne – what a stuck-up bitch!!! I’m worried that people might vote for Luke because he comes on telly being all cute and smiley on the Friday shows; but did you see him a couple of weeks ago? He’s just as much of a bitch as Marianne! (Don’t hold back Helen).

So if you are going to vote for anyone, please let it be Jen or Albert – I don’t really mind which – though I do fancy Albert. I can’t believe he’s only 20! I shall have to find out where he surfs; accidents easily happen when you’re trying to get out a wetsuit ;o)

What I find amazing in this program is how people’s egos can inflate so easily. It was most apparent when Luke, Waz (I’m glad he went – he was the biggest bitch of the lot!) and Marianne went to Paris – you could just ell that the whole time they were thinking ‘gosh aren’t I bloody fabulous’. It was almost scary to watch.

For all it’s worth about the whole Jen thing – I do think that the people on the panel were just mean to her – they shouldn’t have put her in the house at all if they didn’t think she was a possibility to win. Or was that just down to the ratings and they used her, predicting this situation all along? Tandy is the worst! Get Waz’s, Marianne’s and Luke’s bitchiness together, and times that by a hundred and you might get near to Tandy. She seems to enjoy putting people down. And none of it’s necessary in the live show – it’s about her catwalk performance on the night – not how much she has eaten during the week. What Rachel Hunter said last Friday about Jen using ‘being a model for the real people’ as an excuse didn’t really make sense and wasn’t at all relevant at the time.

If they want the model of their choice at the end of the day, they shouldn’t be doing the Live ‘Walk-off’ should they. They should just admit defeat in trying to do an original model competition on telly and suffer without the money they make from phone-calls. Of course people are going to vote for who they like and not who they think will make the best model. That’s what reality tv with phone-ins is all about. whether the compeition is for singing, dancing, modelling, circus performing; it’s completely irrelevent – it’s simply about popularity.

added 15th November:

Did you see last night’s show? Rachel Hunter and Peru (the photographer who wears sunglasses all the time because he thinks he looks cool, whereas the rest of us thinks it’s just bad manners and makes him look a bit like a nob) went into the room with Marianne with the sole intention of slagging off Jen. I couldn’t believe it!! There are only 2 things to say about that: Either the channel 5 bosses were just off camera saying to them ‘Go on, get in there and try and get Marianne to be horrible about Jen because all this fat vs thin stuff is getting great ratings” (admittedly Marianne didn’t rise to it, but she did do a very sickly smug grin) OR it’s a simple fact that Rachel Hunter was being extremely unprofessional. I mean, her role on this show is to be ‘Model mentor’ so how on earth does that give her the right to say IN FRONT OF THE OTHER CONTESTANTS that Jen is playing a game and going for the sumpathy vote! Out of order I say.

Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
How to host an afternoon tea party
October 18, 2016
Yes I know it’s not exactly the weather for this in the garden any more, but it can still be done inside! My daughter didn’t want to go out on the piss for her eighteenth birthday last month – partly because she’s the first of her friends to turn legal in pubs, so it wouldn’t be much fun getting drunk on her own – and partly because that’s not really her sort of thing anyway. For now at least! So it was her idea to have afternoon tea in the garden with a nod to an Alice in Wonderland theme….
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
