The folks who brought Big Brother
to America (thanks a lot!), are developing a follow-up and all we can say is, "Shame on you!" According to Variety
, Endemol Entertainment is pitching to German TV Big Diet
, a show that would lock up 10 overweight contestants in a fitness center for 100 days surrounded by... Twinkies and other sweet temptations. The catch: Winners will receive bars of gold equivalent to the number of pounds they've lost. In true reality-show tradition, however, viewers will vote one participant out each week. Stop the insanity!
