Big Brother 6

In Formula 1 the most interesting track, Monaco, creates the dullest race. The lack of overtaking opportunities leads to little interaction and little interest. Similarly, Endemol's deliberate selection of disparate characters simply wasn't conducive to interesting discourse.

In selecting house mates, Big Brother 6's predictable bias towards the superficial combined with a strange predilection towards the stupid ensured that the little communication we witnessed was banal. A randomly chosen group of undergrads would be more interesting to watch.
