captainD's Boot Prediction – Survivor Palau, Episode 3

As week three of Survivor: Palau comes rolling in, I will try my best not to repeat last weeks pitiful performance. After picking the reward and immunity winners correctly, somehow Ashlee slipped off my radar and became the 2′nd boot. Will Koror’s immunity winning streak continue? Will Jennifer finally say something? Anything?! Let’s find out . . . This week Ian and Tom get tired of their diet of rats and decide to go shark hunting. Richard Hatch would be so proud! A physical reward [...]

Survivor Strategy – The Second Coming of Romber? Doubtful.

by aurora Episode 2 of Survivor Palau did little to shed any light on some of the players ignored in the premiere. A few people did, however, make a bit of an entrance. And those I mentioned in my first commentary continued to shine – well most of them, anyway. Caryn wasn’t happy with Koror’s new living arrangements. She made quite a fuss, actually, and accused Tom of making a bad decision for the rest of the group. Fast forward to the “scenes from the [...]

A Look At The Final 20 – American Idol Commentary

by NiceGuy286 The first week of eliminations after America’s votes is already behind us and 4 contestants were sent home – 2 guys and 2 girls. That leaves 10 guys and 10 girls all vying for America’s votes to be the next American Idol. As Melinda Lira, one of the eliminated girls from last week, noted, the face time each contestant gets does factor in when America votes. Let’s face it, chances are that America will not vote for someone they haven’t seen much of. [...]

Weep No More, My Alex: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy Episode 3.7

–Christina M. Rau/GatsbyGirl The Fab Five’s all a-flutter out to the SUV. They read the dossier about 29-year-old Alex Manolopolous (I’m totally guessing at the spelling of that). They ooh and ahh over how he’s Greek. Ted’s factoid: the Greeks invented gay sex. So everyone hoorays for the Greeks and gay sex. Because where would Queer Eye be if not for those ancient gay philosophers? Alex is a banker, and he thinks his job is soulless. He’s been married 5 years to Carine but they [...]

Raising The Game – American Idol, 03-01-05

by LauraBelle The game has been raised so much on American Idol this year, it’s not enough to just be a good singer. You have to be totally comfortable on stage and have a definite “it” factor. Aloha Mischeaux opens the show with her rendition of Alicia Keys’ “You Don’t Know My Name.” Aloha, please ditch the flower. You’re making us think of Jasmine Trias, and, well, we don’t want to. None of the three judges liked it. Randy says he liked the style switch, [...]

The World Is Waiting For You – The Amazing Race 7, Premiere

by LauraBelle The Amazing Race is a tough show to cover the first few weeks as it’s hard to get to know twenty-two contestants all at once. It took me the entire two hours to learn the difference between the two young female racing duos, and still can’t keep straight Ray and Deana and Ron and Kelly. Just like last season, the easiest pair to get to know and identify is the first to leave. The racers take off from Long Beach, California and need [...]

Team Gotti is 1:1, Season 2, Episode 8

Team Gotti is now 1:1 Sunday Dinner is time for a family to bond. Victoria says that she always makes room Sunday dinner, and that is what this episode starts off with. The whole family, including Robert (did he move in?) are sitting in the kitchen eating one of Victoria’s famous Italian dishes. It looks really good. Although the dinner conversation was somewhat unusual, Carmine mentions something about bowels which I wouldn’t like to repeat. John has decided that he wants a paintball gun, and [...]

The Most Disappointing Bachelorette Yet – The Bachelorette 3, Episode 7

By Rachel I think by now everyone has heard what a fiasco the final episode of The Bachelorette turned out to be. I’m here to recap the disaster. The three hour finale began with Jen’s family meeting John Paul and Jerry. Jen’s family really seemed to like John Paul. He was polite, sweet, grounded, and said all the right things. He even asked Jen’s dad what he would think about John Paul proposing to Jen. Her dad said he thought that would be great. Then [...]

The Men! The Men! – American Idol 4 – 2/28/05

By Annie It’s men’s night and week two of the semi finals. I just adore men’s night. It’s a guaranteed hour’s worth of great music! Up first is Mario :love: who attempts to dispel rumors of his baldness. Is he bald? With a voice like his, who cares? He sings “I Love Music”. He is flawless in my eyes. He has confidence and style and doesn’t miss a note. Randy seemed to like it but said he wants more from his voice. Paula agrees and [...]

He Called Today – Starting Over, 02-28-05

by LauraBelle I had never really heard of the Butterfly Effect, but I find it an interesting concept that most certainly applies to the women in the Starting Over house. They start out doing such little changes in their lives, and that leads to bigger things, and before long, they have completely Started Over. Rhonda leads Group introducing the women to the Butterfly Effect. This is an idea by Edward Lorenza, a meteorologist that in 1961 theorized that a butterfly flapping its wings in Peking [...]
