Well obviously, the best way of forming a fair and unbiased view about a show is.......not to watch it!! Rolling Eyes Laughing Laughing


I think the majority who go on these shows just want a freebie holiday and to get on telly.

I also think they should have to pay a fee of say £1.000, if they buy they get it back to pay towards a deposit.

It would stop the time wasters.


Given that, perhaps the people who are as thick as two short planks should also have to pay a 'deposit' before going on quiz shows, which they would forfeit if they don't achieve a certain minimal score! Rolling Eyes

The point being that the producers of all these programmes which feature the general public don't care about the suitability of the people involved........it's just cheap television for them!! (Which I do actually watch, so feel it reasonable for me to comment on! Cool ).


Difference is the thicko's on the quiz shows do not get freebies, they just make themselves look stupid.

I watch them if they ain't much on telly, but I can assure you it ain't that cheap television.

They get at least 3 nights Accommodation in a 4 or 5 star hotel. They get their flights, they also get all meals paid for and most drinks and get driven every where.

Then there are the presenters, the film crew, who are also put in hotels with all food and drink paid for, plus of course their flights as well.

Plus of course all their wages.

So! no it ain't cheap television.


Yes, but the over 50s really pay for it all Wink

Just to add that there is a limited amount of tv time and to go over all the
legal aspects of buying in Cyprus would mean that they would have to do the
same for every other country they feature.

I do know that the producers ask a lot of questions of the estate agents
prior to the show and have a certain criteria - they do appear interested in
ensuring those featured get the best outcome.

Several of our Sponsors have been involved with the show over the years
in one way or another including achieving a few sales.

Cheers

No, you're right, when you think of the massive costs of all of those freebies (A "4 or 5 star hotel" for goodness sake!!😱) it must work out far more expensive than, for example, the production of ' The Crown' or 'I'm a Celebrity........get me out of here!' Rolling Eyes

I see you have changed your comparison now from Quiz Shows to a Multi cost production.

Slightly different.

I don't watch I'm a Celebrity as it's a waste of money and crape television anyway.

No change in 'comparison', whatsoever! I said ANY programme that has members of the public as it's 'stars' is "cheap television"!! Rolling Eyes

And I see you've subscribed to Teflon Boy's school of critique, in having the mysterious ability to consider a show that you don't watch as "crape" (sic) Laughing

If you get any more confused you'll have to change your moniker to 'bubblemouse'! Wink Laughing

Woody or should I call you Chris lol.
Again, I think you have misread your own post, (big letters) for you to read again That is what I was referring to when I said you have changed your comparison.

Plus of course Celebrity hardly means the ordinary member of the public. Rolling Eyes Wink

When you go to England suggest an appointment at specsavers. Laughing

When buying new properties in Europe sometimes VAT is charged , Cyprus for instance at 19% if not full time resident and only world wide home and excluded under the Transfer tax law. That is a hefty amount ,takes years to even break even.

Sometimes part time agents ,often Brit expats work for the agents or did years ago. They, I think may pick up 1,000s , rather than a few hundred , for a successful sale.

I stand to be corrected on both points.

Oh, Mr T, you have no idea, I mean you've seen the way he talks to me! Crying or Very sad

Sometimes I don't know which way to turn (ooh Matron!). In fact it's almost got to the stage where I feel like doing something totally crazy, drastic, illogical and irresponsible........such as voting 'leave' should there be another referendum! Big Smile

Iím really disappointed in you Woody.
