    I was flicking through the paper this morning over breakfast, when i happened upon a tv listings page. i noticed that at 9pm tonight there is a program called "Celebritity Shark Bait" my eyes lit up at the thought! at last something to watch. I daydreamed for a moment:

    Paris Hilton jumps of the back of a speedboat and is dragged behind it just in front of a pack of hungary sharks - the more people phone in and pledge money to charity the SLOWER the boat goes. Meaning that for a fiver you could help some starving child in africa AND see Paris Hilton dismembered and eaten live on Sunday Night TV. You could have different celebrities each week representing different charities.

    However, the real program is far more mundane just people swimming with sharks. Thought my idea was much better - oh well back to the DVD's

    LOL.... Your nuts Gary.[​IMG]

    I have swam with sharks many times. The biggest was a 12 foot Hammer Head.

    Good idea about Paris Hilton. Maybe you we could do a vote on who we would like to see being eaten.

    1. Richard Gere so he doesnt make any more movies.
    2. Robbie Williams ***** music.
    3. Ken Livingstone for the congestion charge.

    and a bonus traffic warden every week to get joe public involved. :D

    In all seriousness though.. shark-baiting is no joke, especially somewhere like Capetown.... In the last few years there are more swimmers/surfers getting eaten by sharks than ever before.. an old lady got taken in 2ft of water back in July.
    the 'un-shark like' behaviour coinciding strangely with the advent of boats throwing chunks of seal meat in the water and dangling people in cages for the sharks to attack.... :(


    But if it was paris Hilton on a rope... that changes everything... :D

    :eek: Sounds like the norm though. People doing dumb things, too often, and getting other people hurt/killed.................and then the sharks get the blame and are hunted down to dangerously low levels.


    Why Paris Hilton in particular? I can think of hundreds of celebs/hangers on I'd rather feed to the sharks than PH! :confused:

    Frederick 'foul mouthed bigot' Forsyth would be my first up for Great White fodder.......... ;)

    My Dad provided a quote to insure this series - they originally wanted to use untested and experimental perspex cages apparently! :eek:

    I'm with the original poster. I was quite disappointed that no celebrities were eaten. All we got was some sharks swimming by, none of them went for the celebs at all. Which proves that sharks do have taste.

    I agree that for a future follow on they should allow the public to phone in to see which celebrities get eaten. I would pay good money to see Jade Goody swimming with sharks. Maybe there could be a string of these shows (knowing ITV there will be if this one is successful): celebrity vulture bait, celebrity piranha bait, celebrity tiger bait and so on...

    ...just a thought :)

    Right Gary

    Ruby Wax, that plank Patrik Kilty and a few more, tied to different boats, all go at the same time to get a head start, then release a starving Great White and let the TV audience vote for a boat to slow down. Who gets it first, what shall we call it. 'Has-been Celebrity Dead Meat' An ITV ratings hit, next episode 'Neighbours' followed by 'Eastenders'. It could last forever with all the c**p on TV.

    i was thinkng it might be an idea to ask each celeb 5 questions before they get in - for each wrong answer they have to cut themselves with a sharp blade - just give a little "incentive" for the shark ;)

    If they get them all wrong the boat goes in small circles.
