Second Annual Reality Shack Awards Ceremony: And THIS Is Why WE Love Reality TV

Two, two, TWO IN A ROW! The Second Annual Reality Shack Awards is finally here! Or, as Chip has now named them: THE SHACKIES! Too many words in CAPS THIS EARLY ON? Probably so. Moving on.

Tonight’s host is none other than GatsbyGirl, aka GiGi, aka GG, aka Christina Marie. Please welcome GatsbyGirl!

Holding for applause.

Still holding.

Okay, that’s enough. For now.

Hi, everyone, and welcome to the second annual Reality Shack Awards. If this year’s awards sounds vaguely familiar, chalk it up to perhaps me using the exact same column from last year and simply replacing some names and commentary. Now on with the fake show!

Here to present the first award of the evening is Reality Shack moderator, Jade.

The first award for the night is for BEST CATCH PHRASE OR ONE-LINER. The nominees are:

“Did he just say ‘dirty penis’?”- Ben Stein, America’s Most Smartest Model

”Brooke was slutacious. She was the whore of Charm School. A slutacious whore.” Mo’nique, Charm School

“That was beautiful! Like a big, gray albatross!” Bruno from DWTS


“I’d do that for a dollar!” Eric, BB8

The first shackie of the second annual fake awards goes to:
[b] “Did he just say ‘dirty penis’?” said by Ben Stein on America’s Most Smartest Model [/b].

~ ~ ~ Ben Stein stands up, salutes the audience, kissing Mary Alice Stephenson right on her mouth, and gets to the stage. He bows to Jade, takes his award, and says, “Like Charles VII besieging and capturing the remaining English strongholds in 1453, I have won. Also, thank you, Gaston, for thinking that penises smell bad.” Ben salutes the audience and exits. Bruno jumps on his seat, pointing at Ben, yelling, “He looks like a beautiful albatross!” ~ ~ ~

[i]Jade[/i] Our next presenter is currently riding an all-time high from winning his last mafia game. Please welcome Brian.

The winner is:
[b] Swapping tribemates, Survivor China[/b]

~ ~ ~ Mark Burnett runs to the stage and grabs his Shackie, holding it high over his head. Jeff Probst is on his heels, calling out, “Now Mark is in first. Can he keep holding onto that trophie?” Mark stops himself from giving his thank you speech and asks Probst, “Why are you giving a play-by-play? The season is over.” Probst continues, “Burnett’s getting real tired now, delusional.” Mark Burnett calls for security who escort him to his seat and escort Probst far, far away so he can be muzzled properly. ~ ~ ~

Please welcome our next presenter, Polomex.

Everyone loves a good strategy whether it be in a reality show competition or on a Reality Shack game forum. Here are the nominees for BEST STRATEGIZER IN A REALITY SHOW COMPETITION.

[i]Polomex[/i] continues,


PG, Survivor China

I’ll accept this award on Amber’s behalf. Perhaps she didn’t have a game plan for how to get here. So now welcome ODedOnRealityTV.

Speaking of games and competition, let’s take a look at our nominees for MOST ENTERTAINING FORUM GAME.

Mafia 8

Mafia 9

Mafia 10

RS TAR game

The winner is:
[b] RS TAR Game [/b]

~ ~ ~ Brian takes the stage. “I’d like to thank The Amazing Race for letting me steal all their ideas and all the players at Reality Shack for playing! Brian hugs OD and then does the cha cha slide until he gets backstage. ~ ~ ~

While we’re on the topic of forums, here are the nominees for MOST ENTERTAINING FORUM TOPIC:

Mafia X, The Beverage (Dead peeps section for Mafia X kills)

YouTube video threads

Random chat

And the most entertaining topic is:
[b]You Tube video thread[/b]

~ ~ ~ Aurora climbs on stage, grabs the award, and does her impression of Brian’s impression last year of Sally Field: “You like me! You really like me! Thank you, You Tube, for getting our forums hoppin!” She walks off-stage, waving to the adoring crowd. ~ ~ ~

Hosting is one of the hardest jobs to do well. Some reality show personalities have wowed us with their skill. Here are the nominees for BEST HOST.

Julie Chen, BB

Padma Lakshme, Top Chef

Phil Keoghan, TAR

Jerry Springer, America’s Got Talent

Pat Kernan, World Series of Pop Culture

The award goes to:

[b]Phil from The Amazing Race[/b] for the second year in a row!

~ ~ ~ Phil, remembering what happened last year with Wayne Brady, Julie Chen, Dave Navarro, and Caroline Rhea trying to impede his way to the stage, uses his Fast Forward and must eat a pigeon feather, a delicacy in Alkdfglijoijstan, to receive a key to an underground passageway to get to the stage. He takes his award and says, “You know the speech—number of countries, hours, miles it took to get here, yadda yadda, yadda, I still have a sexy accent. Thank you!” He returns to the secret passageway just in time to miss Jerry Springer’s fan club chanting JER-RY! JER-RY! JER-RY while throwing chairs and mackin it with their sisters. ~ ~ ~

Chippewa says, The next category is for WORST HOST. The nominees are:

The chick, aka Alison Sweeney, from Biggest Loser

Mike Richards from Beauty and the Geek

Jeff Probst, Survivor

Ryan Seacrest, AI

Samantha Harris, DWTS

The worst host according to your votes is:
[b]Mike Richards from Beauty And The Geek[/b]

~ ~ ~ Jeff Probst comes out of nowhere, babbling: “Samantha Harris is clapping but does she really mean it? Can she hang on? Will Mike Richards develop a personality before Alison Sweeney does? Will Ryan—where is Ryan? Ryan has fallen off the face of the planet!”

Ryan yells out, “I’m right here!” but yet again, no one hears him because he’s so little. Security rounds up Probst once more and Mike Richards finally makes it to the stage to claim his award. However, since he really has no personality, he has no acceptance speech and walks away and no one cares. ~ ~ ~ Chippewa introduces the next presenter, ExodusPart 2.

Hosting may be a difficult job, but judging is even more challenging. Here are the nominees for BEST JUDGE:

Ben Stein, AMSM

Michael Kors, Project Runway

Nina Garcia, Project Runway

Bruno, DWTS

Sharon Osborne, America’s Got Talent

The award goes to:
[b]Bruno from Dancing With The Stars[/b]

~ ~ ~ Sharon Osborne stands up and claps for Bruno, cheering him on: “If if fuckin couldn’t be fuckin’ me, then fuckin’ good for you, Fuckin Bruno! Fuck fuck fuckin wonderful!” Bruno blows kisses to everyone on his way up the aisle and pirouettes and leaps on stage. “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I feel like a big pink flamingo with batteries in my pants! I give me a TEN!” Ben Stein says, “Like the great elephants of Hannibal crossing the Alps, I fall to the greatness of Bruno.” Bruno shouts, “Ole!” apropos of nothing and jives off stage. ~ ~ ~

Continuing on with the judges, let’s look at who’s nominated for WORST JUDGE.

Mary Alice Stephenson, AMSM

David Hasselhoff, America’s Got Talent

Mary Whatsername, SYTYCD

[b] Mary Whatsername from So You Think You Can Dance and, for the second year in a row, David Hasselhoff, America’s Got Talent[/b]

~ ~ ~ David Hasselhoff tries to make it to the stage but he teeters over into a hambuger in his lap from hittin the bottle too hard yet again. Mary Whastername does the Electric Slide up to the stage and says, “WWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, hahahahahaha, I’m on that groove train now, woooowoooooo!” No one knows what the heck she’s talking about so she Electric Slides back to her seat. Hasselhoff? Still out cold. ~ ~ ~

Exodus shrugs and continues:

The nominees for MOST ENTERTAINING JUDGE are:

Paula Abdul


Bruno, DWTS

And the winner is:
[b]Bruno, DWTS[/b]

~ ~ ~ Ms. J stands up in his three foot afro, fifteen ruffle collars, and five in pumps, swivels on his heel, and struts out of the building, workin it. Bruno waltzes onto the stage again, grabs his Shackie, and says, “TEN! TEN! TEN! I’m like a bright green boa constrictor with feet and a bow tie!” He grabs Exodus and waltzes off stage with him as Exodus introduces the next presenter, Rebelyeahright. ~ ~ ~

Biting? Of course. But sleazy? You can suck it.” He kisses the award, farts again, and runs off stage, flipping everyone off one more time, and then lights a cigarette. ~ ~ ~

Probst starts commentating, “So Edguardo, do you think this is the best move you can make? Where’s your torch? Listen to me, dammit! I’m important!” Niffer calls security who yet again have to escort him out. ~ ~ ~

I hope you’re all enjoying the fake awards so far. The awards were tabulated using forum posts, PMs, and an intricate system of asterisks and counting. Votes have not been verified and all actions in this award show are completely fictitious. Now, I give you the next presenter, Chauncy.

The winner is:
[b]Jaime from Survivor China[/b]

~ ~ ~ Jaime comes to the stage, holding a big rock. She thanks everyone for the award. Chauncy steps in: “Uh, Jaime, that’s not the Shackie.” Jaime looks puzzled. She puts down the rock and picks up an ice crea cone and starts to thank everyone. Chauncy steps in again: “Jaime, that’s still not the trophy.” Jaime is even more confused and before Chauncy can hand over the real award, Probst comes down from the rafters on a self-made pulley system and says, “Can Jaime hold out any longer? Can she stay on stage long enough to find the real trophy?” Jaime takes the trophy from Chauncy and nails Probst with it, square inthe nose. “Shut. Up. Probst!” Chauncy gets Jeff Probst down from his pulley and security whisks him away as Vire starts to present the next award.

I know a hypocrite when I see a hypocrite and you are all hypocrites!” Dick doesn’t even get out of his seat to get the award.

That about wraps it up for us. Plenty of surprises and the usual chaos. Thanks for a great year. Hope 08 is just as entertaining!

Disagree with the results? You should have voted! Or you can complain about it in the forums. Email or PM me if you like but there’s not much I can do to change them. “The tribe has spoken.” Jeez, shut UP, Probst.
