Big Brother in Little China

Im back from China and the Olivia Newton John fund raiser.

Had a ball but got very sick with some freaky Chinese bird flu thing.

Actually most of the people on the tour got sick.

I reckon if you’re a betting man, which i’m not, you should bet on China to win the most medals at this years Olympics as Im pretty sure every athlete will get some freaky virus that most of us got when we were there.

Anyhoo, Big Brother starts this weekend and Its my eighth year, can you believe I kept a job for this long?

No more UP LATE, cause Channel Seven and Channel Nine stuffed the whole late night game show thing by doing it wrong.

THEY COPIED ME and MY IDEA!!!

They did it in a horrible money grabbing way and my show was fun and entertaining while giving away money.

Hence there are no more people willing to call up for the quizzes and games. Thanks Nine and Seven.

The Up Late ratings were still massive, so thats not to blame for the show being taken off at all.

Thanks for the thousands of e mails and letters asking why UP LATE is not back but the good news is if youve got HD there should be a live streaming element on TEN HD TV, Three Mobile and the big brother website. bigbrother.com.au

  1. Are those game shows you’re talking about the ones with the tarted up Carnie’s tricking people into making Premium Rate phone calls to identify words in some puzzle looking thing, and when the word given is actually there, they say it’s the wrong word anyway? The one where the Carnie Tarts have the verbal wit and hosting skills of a Mongolian tourettes sufferer after a weekend bender on Yak Beer, Rohypnol and Ketamine?

    Never seen those.

  2. Sorry to hear that the late night show will not be on Mr. Goldman, it’s been nice knowing you several hours a day over those few months every year… I always used to surf the net and have the tv on in the background and occasionally look over and laugh at your antics.

    I read somewhere that your old man was the stadium announcer at Sydney olympics opening ceremony and stuff, that’s pretty cool.

    So, will it just be you doing the voiceover for the daily show, is there gonna be a friday night games thing with you on it too? They should have considered you for a complete take over as main host. Seriously, how can Jackie and Kyle, who are talented million dollar radio players I admit, find the time to do it all and do it well, working a couple hours on radio each day the whole time they are doing big brother, or are they taking time off, maybe i don’t know what im talking about, either way, I think you earned your stripes over seven hard years, and deserve a bigger focus.

    All the kids love you, im like 26 but I do have a 12 year old sister and she totally loves you.

    Look on the bright side, at least you’ll be keeping decent hours this year, no more bags under the eyes, and totally rested and healthy etc…

    That was terrible what they did with quizmonkey, an unmitigated disaster.

    And I hope you told quarantine you had bird flu, I think that’s a pretty deadly disease, I know you’re kidding, its pretty cool you went on that walk in china, I saw Newton John on current affair, they shoulda had you on too.

    Maybe they did, I was eating at the time.

    Goldman kicks arse. He’s woman’s a hot model, he’s voice kicks arse. And he’s an all round nice guy.

  3. Hey there mate,
    That was one of the nicest e mails Ive ever received.
    If I wasn’t straight and engaged, I would have a sex change and try to have your baby.
    Hope to meet you in person one day at Big Brother or at Friday Night Download.
    Come say g’day and tell me who u are if you see me, I’d love to say hello.

    Best Regards

    Mike Goldman

  4. I always knew Ch7 and Ch9 were thieves.. They try to be funny like you, but it doesn’t work.

    It’s okay, you still got all your fans supporting you.

  6. I totally agree with the above emails – I really can’t understand why Kyle and Jackie O have been put as the main hosts. Surely, with your quirky humour, huge fan following and the fact that you are a genuinely nice guy, they didn’t ask you to take on the role as the main host. It’ll be interesting to see how the ratings go this year with the removal of BB Uplate (you rock!!!) and in particular, with the appearance of Kyle as a host. Now I’m not knocking the guy, but seriously, you definitely wouldv’e been a much better choice – if not, the best choice. I’ve watched Big Brother over the years, but honestly, Uplate and Friday nights were the only entertaining shows to watch, a credit to yourself! My 11 yr old niece said to me that she isn’t going to watch it this year in her own words “I’m not watching it this year because Mikey isn’t on anymore…” Goes to show no matter what age group Mikey (she’s 11 and I’m 36), you leaving a great lasting impression!!!

    With any luck the producers of BB will come to their senses and we will see you grace our screens with presence!!

    Take Care

    Kindest Regards

  7. Hi Mike, glad you’re back home safe and sound and feeling better. Thanks for not squibbing out on the great walk, that flu must have been hell. We enjoyed your stories especially the photo’s. It was a pleasure to sponser you.

    It’s a bummer about Uplate, you will be missed, my kids are ticked off too, for years they’ve been having breakfast with uplate, now they’re stuck with Kochie and Mel 🙁

    Just 1 question, re this from your blog:

    “the good news is if youve got HD there should be a live streaming element on TEN HD TV, Three Mobile and the big brother website. bigbrother.com.au”

    Do you know how much live streaming the HD channel will have?

    Good luck with your 8th year.
