SCOTS teenager Rory Munro knows there will always be a warm welcome waiting for him in the Borneo jungle which for a month this summer he learned to call home. And while his fellow fatties moaned and groaned their way through four weeks of eating frogs and gutting wild pigs, Rory made such a good impression that the tribal chief considered him part of his family and invited him to return any time he wanted. Another Iban gave Rory a string a beads that had been in his family for generations in exchange for the youngster's prized kilt. Rory, of Dalgety Bay, Fife, said: "Although I knew it was mainly about losing weight, I thought the idea of living in the jungle with people who live like that every day was fantastic. There were times that I felt I had more in common with the Ibans than I did with the other teens. Rory, who weighed 19st before heading into the jungle, discovered the BBC were looking for overweight teens to take part in the documentary when his dad showed him an advert.
Fat teenagers. Doncha just love 'em? Here, following in the footsteps of Fat Men Can't Hunt? The Iban have never seen anything like it. When they ticked the "Yes, we would like some British visitors" box on the BBC application form, they were probably expecting that nice skinny Bruce Parry. Instead they get these great lumps - five boys and five girls, including wannabe singer Ailsa who thinks the whole experience will boost her confidence.

Sometimes there is a title so brilliantly appalling, or appallingly brilliant, that it exerts a hypnotic fascination. Though one's rational mind fights against the urge, the primitive, reptile brain, which alas is the part that controls the hand that controls the remote control, is helpless before it. Thus it is that we end up watching the unforgivable, indefensible, reprehensible likes of Can Fat Teens Hunt? Whoever the BBC keeps chained up in the bowels of Television Centre to churn out these twisted concepts has done some of his finest work here.
