Pride of Britain Awards 2013 red carpet

The Pride of Britain Awards, per Wikipedia, is an annual event in the United Kingdom honouring (see what we did there?) British people who have acted bravely or extraordinarily in challenging situations. Which is to say, it’s a red carpet awards ceremony that isn’t just a bunch of spoiled famous people! …Weird.

…Also weird: apparently 1 out of every 3 famous British people are TV hosts/presenters. That’s like if Hollywood was one third Giuliana Rancics!

Here’s the 2013 Pride of Britain Awards red carpet…

Peter Andre was there–isn’t this for people who acted bravely in extraordinary circumstances? Does being on one season of a reality TV show with your glamour model wife qualify?

If you’ve got a few minutes, here’s a video we recommend. Highly.
