People were actually taking photos and, I think, having photographs taken with them. I couldn't help but find it a little depressing. I just can't put myself into the mindset that would fawn over celebrities - even ones that did something deserving of their fame. I tried to imagine my equivalent scenario: David Attenborough? Physicist and science documentary host Brian Cox? "River Monsters" host Jeremy Wade? Sure, it would be interesting to sit down and learn from them, but I can't imagine getting excited about a fleeting appearance or a chance to have my photograph taken with them. Their celebrity is irrelevant, it's their knowledge that matters.
A dipstick contestant on a "reality" TV show? No thanks. I walked around the commotion and went on with my shopping. Perhaps I should have wandered down to Coles.
