2011 Sports “Personality” to be decided by random lottery draw

November 29, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The winner of the BBC’s 2011 Sports “Personality” of the Year award will be decided by one of the National Lottery machines pumping out one of ten balls, it has been announced.

 

Who will be the 'bonus ball'?

The ten British “stars” chosen for the shortlist are all so unrecognisable that no-one can be expected to actually know them, with not even a loathsome footballer included.

A BBC spokesman said, “Obviously there’s not much going on but we were determined to avoid any scenario where someone like Ryan Giggs could win it again.

“This isn’t ‘X-Factor’, after all.

“Out of the machines we’re thinking to use Guinevere to add some diversity, although she might get a bit nervous as the only woman in the room.

“Especially with Gary Lineker wandering about.”

    It’s a bizarre award to be honest, what the chuffing hell are the actual critieria?
