Dead Famous by Ben EltonThe cover says: One house. Ten contestants. Thirty cameras. Forty microphones. One survivor.
You think: Big Brother? Youre right. Here its called House Arrest, produced by Peeping Tom Productions.
You know from the beginning that one of the inmates will be killed on day 27. But you have to wait until page 200 to find out who will it be and how. Normally you would think that a murder in a house full of cameras is easy to solve - cause the whole thing must be on video. But it is possible, which makes work for the police detective quite complicated, especially after he finds out that several ppl would have had a good motive.
The end is very surprising, I wouldnt have bet on this killer. And the book is also a good book about manipulation IN as well as THROUGH television.
I'm not dead, former Big Brother contestant complains after Channel 5 show paid tribute
But the way "Big Brother" handled the death of a contestant's grandfather offered a model of how reality shows should respond when real life painfully intrudes. Those circumstances were a bit challenging, naturally -- the whole idea of the game is that contestants are entirely sequestered from the outside world, and if they leave, they lose the game. An exception was made, here, to allow contestant Frankie Grande to get news of his grandfather's death via a letter from his family and to discuss the news with his housemates. It was strange, uncomfortable TV: Grande declared that he definitely wasn't leaving the show, and his fellow competitors, who were generally out of the frame, would interject with familiar, vague comforting words as best they could even despite being his opponents. It felt more like a group therapy session than a tightly engineered dramatic scene. Reality TV has run up against this sort of thing before.
