I get competition shows that are centered around singing or dancing. I may not be a fan or watch them but at least I can fathom their premise.
Then comes Splash! also known as LBC is really desperate for a hit TV show à la Dancing With The Stars.
The TV show will start this coming Sunday. It has been adopted from the UK version which ranked only #16 weekly among British TV shows. Not impressive at all. And yet Splash! is here.
A few Lebanese celebrities will be competing against each other in diving. That’s what the show is all about. Lame? You bet. Silly? An even surer guess. What’s the point? I guess it’s still better than airing AUD’s graduation ceremony on Sunday, Roula Saad – Star Academy’s person – has been without a TV show for a while now and there will be public voting, obviously. Money, money, money!
And there’s of course seeing Nancy Afiouny in a bikini. I sure want to see her meow, meow. If you know what I mean.
The candidates, also known as celebrities whose days have passed and want a career reboot, include:
- Nancy Afiouny
- Nelly Makdessy
- Arze Chidiac
- Antoinette Akiki
- Katia Keady
- Nicole Tohme
- Rita Hayek
- Laurette Hnayno
- Elie Massaad
- Salah Tizani
- Rodolphe Hilal
- Naser Abou Lafy
- Sevag Demerjian
- Wajih Saker
- Silvio Chiha
Yes, I have no clue what most of those “celebrities” do and yes, there will definitely be cannonballs.
Our TV stations are adamant about bringing growingly lamer TV shows from abroad just to create some buzz. Will you be watching Splash!?
Somehow the thought of most of those people doing twirls before they splash everyone is getting less and less appealing by the second.
Thank you @Joseph__Saade for the info.
