Deal Or No Deal a reality show? Has it come to this?

Hey, nothing says 'rebelling against the system' and 'giving it to the man' like accepting an award from Chester Cheetah!

And this is the US version, remember, which is so glossy it makes Noel's dream factory look like a heroin den

"Dude... like, Chester's always stood up to the forces of the man, like the Quaker Oats Guy..."

Much as I dislike his brand of boil-in-the-bag complaint rock, you have to at least give Benington credit for not changing his Archie Comics name for something a bit more street.

That's up there with the 1995 BAFTAs, when the 'Best Talk Show' award was coincidentally born just in time for it to go to, erm, Panorama's Bashir/Diana interview.

"And this is the US version, remember, which is so glossy it makes Noel's dream factory look like a heroin den"

Arf! Does anyone know if the American contestants are as annoying as ours? If the models just open the boxes instead of first joining hands, chanting 'good luck', prostrating themselves etc and the contestants just picked the numbers instead of painstakingly explaining their 'system' (usually some sort of Fibonacci sequence based on their ancestors' birthdates), I think I could be converted.

If Spongebob doesn't win, it'll be a bloody travesty.

James, The American on is pretty much the same... only our models don't do that... they just open boxes, smile, and OCASIONALLY TRY to make witty remarks... I must stress the 'TRY'
