The female contestants include a 60-year-old (the oldest contestant ever) and a "bisexual political protester." Well, duh. I mean, redundant much? How many protesters do you know who aren’t political? (Ha ha, gotcha.)
So, yeah, a "hunky male" arrives tomorrow. I get that this show courts controversy in an effort to boost ratings, but what’s the idea here? A crossover with The Bachelor? Or just soft porn? It’s reminding me of that scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. You know the one.

Will Carole become the next Shilpa Shetty or the next Jade Goody? Will the twins re-enact The Parent Trap? Channel 4 is trying to keep things above board this time: "House rules have been updated to warn against bullying and to make clear that it is unacceptable to make offensive remarks on the grounds of race, religion or sexuality." OK, those of you on fairer shores who actually get to watch this: Keep us posted!
