I suppose I have to pass these on ... it is, after all, the sort of people we are dealing with (in many ways)

(It kinda makes it hard not to give up, though. I suppose - on the bright side - only a complete dickhead would become one of these so-called 'contestants'. Maybe this is just a list of ALL the dickheads there are?)

(And, of course, the WORST THING OF ALL ... is that SOMEONE (not. necessarily the same person, of course) HAS WATCHED OR LISTENED to these so-called 'programs' ... in order to to provide the source information for this list! )
