Come Dine With Me
« on: March 30, 2009, 05:46:10 PM »

I have watched a few of these programmes. If you are unaware this is  essentially where 5 strangers get together,  host a dinner party at their house on consecutive nights of the week and pretend they can cook , be a good host / ess . They get marked out of ten by their guests for their efforts. This is done at the end of the night - usually when they are totally sozzled. The best bit is the voice over commentary which is truly bitchy coupled with the cringe fest moments when they try and entertain their guests by singing, magic tricks etc.

The prize - a piss poor meagre 1000  noooo:

Your fellow diners meanwhile go round your house, opening your bedside cabinet draws etc and making bitchy comments about your decor etc before turning their nose up at the food you have slaved away all day cooking (most of the time).

In every program there are a number of characters to choose from whether this is the picky eater (a vegan or coeliac), the drunk (who falls asleep through dinner),  the cheat (who uses packets or a local restaurant!). the opinionated know it all , the am dram queen , the hunter and gatherer type, the pretentious wine buff, the housewife who shops only at Iceland etc

So who is going to be first to host the VP Come Dine With Me Dinner Party and what we will eat  and find in your house  rubschin:

The question is are you brave enough to go poking through his cupboards  whistle:

He's right... the first one will be at my house....  cloud9:

Starters - bread
Main - chips
Desert - ice cream (made from goat's milk  eeek:)

But lots and lots of collapso - this may affect the scoring naturally  lol:
