Reality Check... my guilty pleasure
Reality Check... my guilty pleasure
I like "Reality" shows.
Not all of them mind you - the whole genre has gone bonkers - but I do enjoy a few select shows.
Understand that I DON'T think they are 'real.' Its just entertainment, but it sure can be fun to watch at times.
My favorite has to be Big Brother - now the TV part of the show is average at best - its the fact that you can watch the goings-on 24x7 over the internet that makes this show interesting. Then I get to see how the producers take what has really gone on and try to spin it into an interesting TV show.
The original Average Joe - loved it - even thought poor Adam Mesh lost (he is now engaged btw).
The 'original' (the USA version wasn't the fist of course) survivor - another gem - Richard Hatch won for all the right reasons - he played the game better than anyone else - since then there have been 'winners' that seemed to win because they got buddy buddy with people.
Amazing Race - thats the one show I would like to be on.
The Mole - ahh Anderson Cooper - I miss that show - the 'celebrity' versions were interesting but not as good as the ones with unknowns.
I know there are tons of other ones - the best Fake reality show was the original Joe Schmo - a classic show where poor "Joe" was the only one not in on the joke - and all the other 'contestants' did a great job of spoofing the various other 'reality shows.'
Big Brother 6 is winding down - wanna know who will get thrown out Thursday? I have known since Saturday...... The next Survivor starts in a couple weeks - I have mixed feelings about it but I will tune up my Tivo to catch it.
Do you despise reality shows? Have a favorite?
Let me know!!!!

Ahhhhh....reality TV. You are a man after my heart. I am addicted to reality television shows. Here are a few others that you have forgotten to mention - The Apprentice, The Cut, Project Runway, Blow Out, Road Rules (a friend of mine was on there)and Real World. They are quite entertaining and they definitely keep me amused.|

Hey! How do you know who is getting kicked out Thursday? C'mere, whisper it in my ear. It'll just be our little secret, I promise.|
I enjoy shows like 'Real life in the ER' on TLC and Intervention on A&E. Both intense shows.
There's another one on MTV about weight loss and I cannot think of the name of it right now. Good show though.

The Apprentice - its ok.... I do watch it - but its gettng stale (probably just me)|
The Cut - have it all tivo'd I think - made it through about the first 5 minutes of the first episode and well... CLICK
Project Runway - loooveed it - lol - it was one I did watch and enjoyed.
Blow Out - fake - scripted (just my opinion)
Road Rules & Real World - They have tweaked Road Rules to death from the days that it was simply Real World on wheels - Real World.... Gotta repsect it for being one of the original "Reality" shows - but truthfully at this point maybe I am just getting to old to watch 20 something year olds get drunk - hop in bed - and talk about it the next day....
Remember - thats just me - trust me if I wasn't into reality shows I sure as heck wouldn't have known all the ones you named
44DD - how do I know? Cause I watch the 'live feeds' sweety - there are VERY few surprises on that show if you keep up with the 'live feeds.' Whisper it in your ear? No need - the "backdoor" is finally going to work - that should tell you who is going
