Just about everyone on tv,talent is a thing of the past.


Once you have tasted excellence,you cannot go back to mediocrity.

Most of the people you have named are competent at what they do.
"Loathsome"? Yorath does her job and rarely fluffs her lines. What more do you want?
Is there anyone you do like?

What's wrong with Gabby Logan? She's a fine presenter, not particularly special but harmless none the less.

She's always shooting her mouth off about being typecast as a sports presenter when there's so much more that she could do.

 

She beefed when her husband, who had no talent whatsoever, lasted longer than her on Strictly Come Dancing. It never occurred to her that the viewers liked his personality more than hers.

Anyone from those structured reality tv shows like Made in Chelsea and The Only Way Is Essex.

 

Actual vermin.

I didn't think Carol Kirkwood even qualified as a minor celebrity, then I found out she was on Saturday Kitchen this weekend and that confirmed to me that she was, minor celeb is all that show can muster these days. Half a dozen appearances as an extra on Casualty and you're in.

agree. She's competent, knowledgeable, quick thinking etc.

In my previous post on this thread i have been guilty of equating lack of talent with irrational personal dislike....though Chris Hollins is an exeption....i just don't like the talentless guy....and I DO like Carol Kirkwood....ever so much!

Liza Tarbuck. In fact pretty much every that's found fame as a result of having famous parents.

That's probably true of my assessment of Susanna Reid. To me, she comes across as about as genuine as a Thailand Rolex.

agreed.  She is. Comes over nice but dim. Can't be:  so she is a journo and therefore not nice but studied Politics, Philosophy and Law at Bristol Uni, and has a Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism so not dim.

No, I don't think so.  I dislike Russell Brand and Chris Evans much more than I do any woman.

OR maybe it is a reflection of the fact that talentless yet seemingly good-looking people make it on the TV and are able to sustain a career despite doing nothing. There are no male equivalents of Katie Price and Kerry Katona and woman are more often picked for their looks when it comes to TV than men are.

It's no coincidence that many of the people mentioned are presenters, hardly a tasking job that is often filled with 'beautiful' people.

I guess Rylan got where he is (currently presenting big brother) because he could sing.
