I am worried about singer/Big Brother contestant Nathan……
He is a nice guy who deserves to have a long, successful and credible career, but has his appearance in today’s live screening of the fiasco that is ‘Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack”, destroyed all hopes of that ever happening?
Today, out of curiousity, I switched over to cable/satalite channel E4, spotted Nathan and just shook my head in disbelief….
The show is famous for getting contestants to dress up and act like fools for the camera, and today contestants were made to dress and act like super heroes and famous Hollywood actors/actresses.
Nathan was dressed like Batman’s assistant Robin (I’m guessing that’s who he was supposed to be).
For this role Nathan was forced to wear a mask which covered his eyes, a black lycra leotard, a long purple halter neck cape, and to top it off, skin tight yellow shiny hot pants…..
While the other contestants larked about like idiots lapping up their five minutes of ‘fame’, Nathan could be seen just sitting on the couch looking very uncomfortable, embarassed and soooooo unhappy.
It looked as if he was thinking “what have I got myself in to here? Why did I agree to do this? Why did I listen to my agent?”
He had the look of a man who just wanted the earth to open and swallow him up whole.
At one point he even tried to cover up the hot pants with the long purple halter neck cape, as he walked to the bathroom.
Seriously, it was painful to watch.
When you’re an R&B singer who happens to be male, black, from London (once a road man) and hailing from a Jamaican background, wearing a lycra leotard, a long purple halter neck cape, and tight yellow shiny hot pants on TV simply isn’t the way to go.
I know that Nathan and his agent proberly thought that by him appearing on BB it would open him up to a wider audience (note: the show will not air on terrestrial TV network, Channel 4 this year (thank God). It will only air on E4 which attracts a smaller audience), but after watching Nathan today on the show all I foresee is a distinct loss of credibility.
Nathan needs to leave that house now before he is forced to humiliate himself further…..
