Hey, TV viewer! When I'm not discussing TV on this site, you can find me doing daily TV updates on Facebook and Tumblr. You can also follow me on Twitter. I'm on these social sites talking TV all day, all the time!

And I thought this only happens here!

Pinoys normally complain that local networks tend to milk popular shows every chance they get. They tend to also milk from whatever is the trend --- be it a personality or an event.

Take for instance PBB (Pinoy Big Brother)...because it is such a popular show (is it, still?), there was a time when it was all you see on Channel 2 (it still is!). You click to ABS-CBN and it's there, morning, noon and night. The housemates are all there, in almost every show imaginable.

Think this happens only on Pinoy TV?

Think again.

BB is a guilty pleasure in other countries, too. So popular in fact, that they even held a game show which consisted of popular Big Brother housemates (Ding! Should give ABS-CBN another idea! ).

Here is Australia's Brainiest Housemates:

Australia's Brainiest started as a Kid's show.

The format was taken from the British series entitled Britain's Brainiest Kid. The show was publicised through Australian primary schools, with children sitting an online test, some of these taking a supervised written test, and some of these appearing on the show.

It evolved to become a series, with different sets of people (e.g. housemates, footballers, musicians, etc) competing for the big prize.
