Nice Guys Finish Last – The Amazing Race 6, Finale

More Fun Than Barbaritos – The Bachelorette 3, Episode 5

On the fifth episode of The Bachelorette, Jen goes on four hometown dates. Also in this episode we find out that spoilers can be, and usually are, wrong. Jen’s first hometown date is with John Paul. He greets her with a pair of cowboy boots, which Jen loves, and then they’re off to his parent’s house. Once at the family home, Jen meets everyone and they sit around and chat (this is a common theme with the hometown dates). John Paul’s family likes sports, as [...]

Victoria's Secret (Admirer)

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos Victoria’s got a secret admirer. He sends her flowers. For a woman without a lot of dating prospects right now (and that’s mostly because she doesn’t go out a lot and not because she couldn’t get dates), she doesn’t seem too thrilled about having an admirer. Oh well! She and Robert are compensating for the lack of love in their lives by eating sweets. They talk about the fact that people often equate the sweet stuff with sex. (Don’t I [...]

Episode 1 – Let's Get Physical

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos Author Note: Sorry for the delay of this piece, but I was busy watching the Patriots solidify their place in Football history. Gooooooooooooooooooo PATS!!!!!!!!!! Whudda thunk it? This was the first episode. I came about watching and reviewing Celebrity Fit Club in a round-about way. I am a fan of both ANT and Ralphie May, having covered their endeavors in comedy and their exploits on the series Last Comic Standing. I happened upon the show as I was flipping through [...]

Interview With Marcus of The Road to Stardom With Missy Elliott

Marcus Age: 24 Security Guard Hometown: Houston, Texas By: Chantae Benson How long have you been singing and who are your musical influences? I’ve been singing all my life.

It's Like A Movie I Don't Want To Watch Anymore – Starting Over, 02-07-05

by LauraBelle Many married couples out there certainly wouldn’t argue with the thought that there’s a difference between listening and hearing. Especially when I tell my husband what currently needs fixing in our house. I’m pretty sure he’s doing more hearing than listening. Rhonda comes for a visit with Cassie and is introduced to Cassie’s birth mother, Nancy. As Rhonda asks if she notices anything different about her daughter, Nancy says she looks “too skinny” and “awfully sad.” Cassie moves on to join the others [...]

Interview With Melissa of The Road to Stardom With Missy Elliott

Melissa Age: 19 Student Hometown: Plymouth, Minnesota By: Chantae Benson What was your motivation for auditioning for the show? My friend came over before I had my first audition and just hearing her name (Missy Elliott) gave me motivation in itself. What was your expectation of the show? Did the show meet your expectations or disappoint you in any way? It definitely met my expectations and exceeded them. I was very pleased. It was a fun experience. It was very cool for me to do [...]

Our Whole Life Is Sad – Starting Over, 02-04-05

Givers can learn how to take and takers can learn how to give, but I’m not so sure they can ever switch roles completely. Cassie meets with a group of adoptees and some other people who had given up their children for adoption. One woman had given up two children and has since ben reunited with them. Another was reunited when her birth child was nineteen, [...]
