Confident Fighters are Dangerous – The Contender, Episode 3

by carpesomediem Last time, Jonathan Reid was sent home in another upset for the East by Jesse Brinkley, who stepped up to the challenge when Ishe failed to call out Ahmed. Episode three starts off with the in-ring celebration for Jesse Brinkley’s win. “I don’t have to worry about three days from now if I’m going to win or lose,” he says. In the lockeroom, he boxes with his son and believes he’s more ready to win now than he ever had been previously. He [...]

The Contender, Episode 2 – Commentary: We Want Class Not Sass

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos Hello All, I’m here to comment on the second episode of the Contender. If you haven’t seen it, check out the [url=http://www.realityshack.com/modules/articles/article.php?id=594]recap[/url] by carpesomediem. This show rocks. I love it. I haven’t been this enthusiastic about a Reality TV series since the first season of American Idol. What I like the most about is that it brings out the human interest stories of these men. You root for them – well, almost all of them. I was sort of sad [...]

Come To The Edge – Starting Over, 03-10-05

by LauraBelle Everyone knows what it is like to be stressed; they just all handle it differently. Candy came to the Starting Over house particularly because she wasn’t handling stress well. Vanessa grew up being overly-stressed as a child, while both Cassie and Rachael have found additional stress while in the house in trying to alleviate other stresses. Rachael’s newest stress is centered around trying to get her family to show up at the memorial service she is holding for her mother and step father. [...]

Survival of the Fittest – The Contender, Episode 2

by carpesomediem Last episode, we learned to never discount the underdog, as Alfonso Gomez pulled a big upset over then-undefeated boxer Peter Manfredo, Jr. “Survival of the Fittest,” starts with a recap of the season premiere. Keep in mind, The Contender wasn’t slated to have a new episode Thursday night; its success in the ratings game forced NBC to give the viewers what they wanted: More. This week, however, George Foreman makes an appearance as the latest trainer to join The Contender team, and no, [...]

We're Not Going Back To Immunity! – Survivor: Palau, Episode 4

[i]by atarus[/i] Since I’m at home for spring break, I’m doing this recap by memory. So bear with me. The episode starts off with the six remaining Ulong around the campfire, once again complaining about going to Tribal Council. They’re upset, etc. etc. James says that if people don’t start getting in gear he’s going to have to “stomp on them.” And Kim, ever so bright and brainy, says “Well maybe if you helped them and didn’t stomp on them we’d do better.” James grumbles [...]

C-Word Monologues – Starting Over, 03-09-05

by LauraBelle It wasn’t so long ago that cancer was whispered, instead of spoken out loud, as if people that were afflicted with it should be ashamed. Now Starting Over has one housemate who had a mastectomy so recently they won’t even call her in remission yet, and another housemate whose mother and step father both died of cancer within months of each other. I predict great things will come of this, both for the women and the Starting Over house itself, and if we [...]

Luz Lets Loose: Queer Eye for the Straight Girl Episode 1.8

– Christina M. Rau/GatsbyGirl Let me start by saying I’ve had an awfully long day and I’m writing this under the stress of having stood out in the cold for hours on end while there was a fake bomb scare at my job today. I teach and it’s midterms week and some idiot decided that standing out in zero-degree weather is better than taking a test. So if I seem a bit off and this recap misses things, that’s why. In the SUV, the Gal [...]

“P Stands for Poo and Pervert” – The Simple Life, Episode 6 The next stop is Wilmington Delaware where Paris and Nicole will be staying with the McGivney family – Billy, Lisa, Brendan, Bridget and Liam. Already we get the impression that Billy the Dad considers himself to be a virile older man. Even his strict wife, Lisa can’t get him to tone down his lewd comments. Paris and Nicole are for the moment blissfully unaware of what is in store for them at the [...]

Now I Have An Excuse to be Stupid! – America’s Next Top Model 4, Episode 2

This week we’re promised makeovers and drama – oooh, I loves me some drama! Jay Manuel meets up with the girls wearing an “I Love NY” t-shirt. He rips it open to reveal an “I love LA” shirt underneath, and tells the girls that they’re staying in California this season. They’re on a movie set at Paramount Studios, [...]
