An "episode" that I don't believe was ever recapped

Any recaps from older series should be posted here. This forum is unlikely to contain spoilers, but recaps may contain "forward references" if they are written much later, so approach with caution.

An "episode" that I don't believe was ever recapped

Post by Johnny Canuck » Tue Jul 21, 2015 11:50 am

Hey all,

Just wondering... did anyone ever post a complete recap of the 5-round game that Chris Davies played against the Big Brother housemates in 2009? And if not, would they have records of it anywhere? I can't seem to find a recap of it anywhere on the wiki or forum. I know the conundrum was SEEAMOUTH and there are a couple letters and numbers maxes scattered here and there.

You might be able to recap it from this Youtube video if you want to - I only skimmed through it but it looks to be the complete game.

Did the Big Brother producers really think beating Chris was a reasonable expectation?

In most games, the consensus view is that the brains or brawn of a lot of people can always beat one. Which is true often enough, I guess. Seems they fell victim to that mentality and didn't think it through - it's a skill that can't be replaced en masse, only by other skilled folk. It's probably the same reason people think having a dictionary is a great advantage in the letters game, when it isn't, because where the hell are you gonna look?

When Big Brother was on Channel 4, the audition process was very different. To get onto big Brother, you had to be able to run 100m in under 10 seconds, beat a world top 10 tennis player over 5 sets, and max three games of Countdown in a row.

I suppose a good analogy would be the difference between 1 really strong person trying to lift a car and 10 normal people trying to lift a car, compared to 1 person and a car compared to 10 people and 10 cars. Sort of.

No, it's more like the difference between 1 really strong person trying to lift a feather and 10 subnormal wannabe starfuckers trying to lift a feather, except they don't actually know what a feather looks like and even if they did one of them would probably flush it down the toilet or something.

It can't be the full game. Even if they were given 7 for that numbers game (50 x 100), there's 5 points "missing", in a sense, for Last Legs.
