Seriously, people, relax. All this breathless whining about Maneta and Roki being kicked out of a game show is a bit over-blown, isn’t it?
Firstly, they’re not Zimbabwe’s “representatives“. No. Pay attention – they are game-show contestants who are from Zimbabwe.
They don’t represent you. Maneta didn’t embarrass you. They weren’t sent there by the Ministry of Youth, Sport & Culture to represent the nation. This isn’t a fecking international competition (read: competition among nations).
This is a game show, run by a game show company, and the contestants are picked by the game show company’s representatives. For their own damn reasons.
There wasn’t a nationwide referrendum on who should go on Big fecking Brother. You feel let down? Look in the mirror, my friend. You’re letting yourself down.
I keep seeing hate and bullshit about this rubbish on Twitter and Facebook, and people are trawling the internet for shitty, over-hashed jokes and plugging the name “Maneta” into them. You’re just mugging yourself, mate.
Stop. Take a breath. Besides, most of you lifeless TV-drooling zombie-drones would be slack-jawed and starry-eyed if you ever actually met her in person, cos you know she’s hotter than you and the fact that she auditioned and got picked means she’s braver than you and now that she’s mildly famous you feel she’s better than you. You’re a star-fecker. Look it up.
Hanzi she got Roki kicked out, when he had a good chance to bring home the money. What? To whose home? YOUR home? Would 300k go into the Treasury, or would Rockford blow it on whisky and hoes? Are you out of your mind? Would it be a source of national pride if a Zimbabwean happened to win a game show based not on any marketable talents (like Idols or X Factor), but one where people fecking sit around and get drunk and talk shit and fight?
Big Brother is not a national endeavour, guys. It’s a reality show. Learn the difference.
So please, people, let’s take a step back and ask ourselves why Maneta is such an easy target. Is it the accent? Is it that she “got Roki kicked out”? Is it the big yellow boobs? I’ll take a guess.
All the women hating? You wish you were her.
All the men hating? You wish you were her man.
There, I said it. Now get back to your own boring little life.
Calm. The. feck. Down.
