The web is a reality show

From The Netherlands, the country where the Big Brother was invented, now it’s time for WK (Webcam zitten), which I think translates into something like “sitting in front of a webcam”. It’s a reality show (this time it’s real, not fake as the Heidies… ops!). The site is all in Dutch, but to understand what’s going on I can share with you the concept Floris has explained to me.
10 people have to sit one week in front of their webcam, 24/7. Sleep, eat, etc. Every day they get an assignment via a popular radio station. The contestants also have to gain votes, so they write to blogs, call tv-stations etc. to make themselves famous. By the end of the week only one person survives the ordeal and wins a year of free housing (the contest is linked to a bank who does mortgage consultancy via a webcam). The agency behind it is Qi.

    24/7.. I know this a stupid question but what about going to the bathroom, washing.. you know.. those kinds of activities.
    At least with Big Brother they cut out those scenes but here it is the “real” real world..:-)
