Yes you probably think I’m about to tell you about the most amazing show on the planet that is Big Brother and that the auditions are on right now.
Well, I’m not. I want to tell you about this revolutionary new TV thing I just saw in the USA called Battle Cam.
Actually, since they pay me I’d better give it a quick plug. Auditions are NEXT WEEK!!!

Im so excited about the enormity of the next series I’m PREXHAUSTED (preemptively exhausted)
He looks like a whole lot of fun this guy.
Basically you buy a $10 camera from battlecam.com for the top of your TV and you battle it out for your 5 minuites of fame in a split screen challenge against other people. The public vote live from their lounge room and if the love you you stay, if they “poop” you, that means you’re kicked off. The longer you stay on camera the more money you earn. Yes, they pay you actual cash! I think its like $10 every time your’re on or something.
In a publicity stunt recently Alki David offered US one million dollars for anyone who would do a nudie run in front of president Obama with Battle Cam written on their chest. One guy did it but the President didn’t see it, so no cash for the nutbag. You think thats mental, a terminally ill man with brain cancer will died in front of millions of people when the TV station was just online.
Nikolai Ivanisovich, 62, was given the lethal injection by a doctor at a clinic in Switzerland. Its only a matter of time till someone does something stupid on this channel like chops off a finger or worse, kills someone or themselves. Oh, hang on, that already happened.
So I watched Battle Cam for about three hours last night and It’s a lot like my show I host called Big Brother up late. NOTHING HAPPENS FOR AGES!!! But when it does it’s really exciting. When I host or voice Big Brother Up Late we look for the one on one conversations a lot of the time because it’s a lot less convoluted and people are more likely to be more open. So in that aspect Battle Cam works really well with two people on two different cams at all times.
I watched people talk about their love life, a guy with tattoos all over his face talk about why he did it, watched a guy put pins through his hand, an ex playboy bunny interview an old guy about his life, its very different to any sort of television I’ve ever seen. I can honestly say that it has a future. Only real problem is it can get quite boring. So the concept needs to evolve. I think they need hosts there 24/7 that are up to speed with all conversations going on so they can pop on screen occasionally. Or have a break from Battle Cam and put on my dating show using their battle cam’s for contestants maybe. Check it out if you haven’t seen it!
