Default A Question regarding expecting celebs for strictly

I am Getting SOO incredibly sick and tired of those ''scraping the barrel'' annoying moans


while if we're realistic, the most famous celebrities are unlikely to do any RTV


so honestly i personally applaud the SCD producers going for a diverse, fun line up, not the biggest celeb names but most this year too seem a fun bunch (that with 5 or 6 more to go)

let's review our contestants so far

Quote:

Cath, Emma Barton bring in the Corrie and EastEnders viewers

David James, well known from premier league and england national football team

Will Bayley, world number 1 from the sport he does at paralympics Table Tennis, also gold medallist from 2016 Rio paralympics

Karim Zeroual, CBBC viewers, more for the younger target audience

Saffron Barker, brought in same reason they had Joe Sugg last year, more youth to strictly's target audience

Viscountess Emma Weymouth, appeals to strictly's upper class target audience

Mike Bushell, internal BBC signing, same way Anita Rani, Naga Munchetty, Matt Baker, Gregg Wallace were signed

Chris Ramsey, pretty much known from his appearances in Celebrity Juice, Mock the Week, IAC Extra Camp co-presenter in 2016

Michelle Visage, clever signing given how popular Drag Race is

so it isn't ''scraping the barrel'' they exactly know who to sign, and how to appeal to most of the target audiences

my question is ''are u realistic or unrealistic in thinking who might be doing SCD?

The fact they got some bottom of the barrel socialite and they continue to pick people not on who they are and what they can bring but who will say yes and who ticks boxes for the BBC tells its own tale.

They picked a BBC teleprompt reader for small sports breaks who is on tv for about 30 mins a morning 4 days a week - he even looks like the last one they picked

just terrible casting

And 17 years in it's led to an incredibly long running and successfull series.

The fact you find non-white contestants "ticks boxes" and can be cast for no other reason says more about you than them.

who cares about star quality on this show you don't get it, it isn't as important as on a show like ''the jungle'' or ''CBB'' shows where it is about the celebrity

with strictly it is more about the dancing

A good test of celebrity fame on these shows is whether the contestant had a Wikipedia page before the show. Two in this list didn't.

Not that it matters for Strictly anyway, because the public get to know them on the show.

Anyway I don't watch Strictly.

3 weeks? I only thought there was a one week gap

Anyway Iíve always found strictlys schedule odd. They prerecord the pairing - but still choose to air it weeks before the series starts and you feel like youíre waiting years for the series

And they prerecord the results to air a day later - but complain when results leak. Itís ever so odd.

Prerecording the results has always been weird to me, like whatís the point really?

Always better to watch lesser known people eager to impress than a jaded old horse ( Jerry Hall springs to mind)

would it not be a lot better to ditch "people who you my have heard off" and just have "people that you have not heard "

ie civilian

and ditch the sycophancy from the presenters at the same time?
