The UK version has been going for a little while now. It was okish at the beginning but as the years have gone on they have put more and more 'strange' people in there, or people who like to cause trouble, that kind of thing. This year we have already had one girl thrown out for threatening to get her 'gangsta' friends to beat up people in the house she didnt like and a guy evicted for spitting in another housemates face.
Lovely. I haven't watched it - these events have been in the news.
