The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend – The Contender, Episode 4

Last episode, we saw Ahmed Kaddour defeated at the hands of our favorite bad guy Ishe Smith. “The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend” starts out with the aftermath of the Smith versus Kaddour match. “My cancer is gone, I beat him,” Smith smiles. He relates how he’s going to be celebrating Ahmed being gone rather than his victory. He goes back to the lockeroom beat up, bruised and prays for being blessed to win the fight. He comes back to the suite to [...]

Contender Commentary, Episode 4 – There's Something About Najai

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos – panndyra@realityshack.com Before the episode started tonight, I was very upset that a fighter who already lost was coming back on. I thought it was a Mark Burnett style twist like kicking two people off on this week’s Survivor Palau. Check out Atarus’ smoking review here: http://www.realityshack.com/modules/articles/article.php?id=618 I was torn. I mean I liked every guy – except Ahmed – and wouldn’t have minded seeing Manfredo or Reid return. But, I thought it would be incredibly unfair to negate another’s [...]

“Did You Get All That?” – The Apprentice 3, Recap Show

By: Cori Linder clinder@realityshack.com It seems a popular trend that more and more people start hooking into a show as it progresses (I watched the last few episodes of “Project Runway” and could have kicked myself for missing the first half of them…thank goodness for marathons!). We are now at the half-way point in the interview process. So, for those of you who have now decided to tune in, don’t fret, for you can read the following to get the “Cliff Notes” version. This article [...]

Pimpin' the Contestants – American Idol 4 – 3/16/05

by Annie Well here we are at yet another 30-minute advertising extravaganza – American Idol, Wednesday edition. I can’t really complain as much about the lack of entertainment this week as I did the previous weeks since we got to hear 2.25 songs. There were over 30 million votes cast this week. Ryan says that is the most they ever had. Last week he said there were 120 million votes. That’s that new fuzzy math stuff, right? 30,000,000 > 120,000,000 Ryan explains to us that [...]

The Ulonging Continues – Survivor: Palau, Episode 5

by atarus The episode opens up with Gregg snuggling with this apparent person named “Jenn.” However, this “Jenn” is purely a mythological figure. Sightings have been few and far between, and she rumor has it she may just be a blow-up doll Gregg snuck onto the island in his back pocket. Either way, Coby is wary of a Gregg-blow-up doll alliance, as he should be, because blow-up dolls are vicious game players. Meanwhile, everybody tells Willard to keep watching the fire during the night, and [...]

ANTM 4, Episode 3 – You Better Walk

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos UPN promised one of the most intense and dramatic eliminations ever on tonight’s America’s Next Top Model. They didn’t disappoint, but more on that in a bit. This week was runway-coaching week. You know what that means, girls – Miss Jay is in the hizzouse. If you haven’t read the Shack interview with him by my good friend, Cori, you’ve gotta check it out here: http://www.realityshack.com/modules/articles/article.php?id=598 They had to battle to the death in a runway elimination competition.

Robbie says she’s “got quite a gut on her.” Heehee. She’s not prepared for the baby and she thinks she’s going straight back to work right after the birth.

Donna-The Prima Donna! – The Starlet, Episode 3

Donna, The Prima Donna – The Starlet, Episode 3 By: Chloe Tuesday, the lovelies acting skills were tested in commercials. Confidence was at mountain range levels, and in one interview after another, all of the girls expressed security in their ability to do well. After all, a commercial is only seconds long. Memorizing the script and shooting the screen test should be a snap. Should be. Uh huh, right. To their surprise, the hardest task master yet was their instructor for today’s lesson. Beginning with [...]

Feast – Project Greenlight 3, Episode 1

by carpesomediem Project Greenlight began as an idea of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck inspired by their own story. Tired of roles that did nothing for their careers, they wrote their own script – anybody remember Good Will Hunting? – and went on to not only box office success but Oscar gold. This is the breading ground for Project Greenlight. “A lot of people asked how we can do that?” Ben Affleck explains. The first Project Greenlight began in the fall of 2000. More than [...]
