captainD's Boot Prediction – Survivor Vanuatu, Episode 9

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day! That has been my motto the past few weeks as your favorite prognosticator has stumbled on hard times. Rory gone and Julie in a power position? Who’d a thunk it? Thankfully in Survivor there is always next week (except for when they air those stupid recap episodes). As a great football coach once said, when things aren’t going your way it’s time to drop back 15 yards and punt. Unfortunately for me, the great comeback will have to [...]

Tea at 10,000 Feet – Rebel Billionaire, Premeire Episode Part 1

[i]by atarus[/i] Welcome to The Rebel Billionaire: Branson’s Quest for the Best. Sir Richard Branson is the billionaire in charge for this show. As I watched The Benefactor and did columns for that, I think it will be interesting to compare these two shows. Anyway, it is revealed that while the contestants think they are competing for a job for Sir Richard Branson, they are actually competing for the biggest prize in reality TV history: Branson’s job. That’s right, they are going to take over [...]

Liar Liar, Fancy Pants on Fire – $25 Million Dollar Hoax, Episode 1

by aurora Chrissy Sanford is a sweet, All-American girl who looks like a Barbie-doll. She has a large, loving family who supports her in everything she does. But now, with the help of NBC, she’s about to pull off the biggest hoax in television history. (Obviously the folks who wrote the voiceover bit hadn’t seen Ashlee Simpson on Saturday Night Live.) Chrissy is in a limo, dressed to the nines, heading to the ‘middle of nowhere’. The car stops and she steps out into the [...]

So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Get Out! – The Surreal Life 3, Episode 10

by LauraBelle Every reality show has a prize at the end. Although it’s not monetary, Surreal Life’s prize is nonetheless valuable. Every one of the six celebrities took something valuable away. As the final show opens, Bridgette and Flav-A-Flav are in bed together, with Bridgette obviously naked. Dave is playing roller hockey alone on the tennis court, Ryan and Jordan are still asleep, and Charo is attacking a watermelon in the kitchen. Flav-A-Flav jumps out of the bed and starts shouting and banging on the [...]

Swan 2 – Episode 3: Surrender To the Swan

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos Tonight’s first Swan was Erica Moore, a 25 year old girl from Washington. She was adopted and teased for it as a child. Her mom is Japanese and she made a comment that “Erica will never be a fashion model.” Hmm? Wonder if there’s any mommy issues? Erica lost 90 lbs over the last several years. She weighed 240 at her all-time high. She said her ex-boyfriend was a ‘black cloud’ in her life. (I think many of us have [...]

Expanding our Horizons — GUG

by Panndyra, goddess of chaos No, I wasn’t ignoring y’all. Growing up Gotti was on a mini-hiatus for a bit. I know everyone misses Vicky and da boyz, but they need their “R&R” too. This week’s episode started off with Victoria jetting off to Los Angeles to do a small part on the NBC soap, Passions. The fact that she and all my Italian relatives except for me watch this drivel makes me wanna vomit. I gave up soap operas when I was in college. [...]

The Big Fat Hoax Begins – My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss, Premiere

by aurora Welcome to Chicago, an unwavering stronghold of the American corporate juggernaut. It’s a place of perilous risks and staggering payoffs, where fortunes are made and lost in the blink of an eye. While this may be true, the series we’re about to embark on is not. Welcome to My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss, where nothing is real but the payoff at the end. We’re introduced first to N. Paul Todd, multi-billionaire. Or, as he tells it, he’s got “crap-loads of money”. Todd is [...]

The women are quite annoyed to be woken up by a yelling man, and Jen says he’s lucky he’s cute. He gets everyone together and asks if anyone has injuries. Maureen says she has asthma and puffs away on her inhaler to prove it. Kim has knee problems so she [...]

Extreme Makeover: Trump Edition – The Apprentice 2, Episode 9

by aurora Last week on The Apprentice, the teams were asked to design a recruitment campaign for the NYPD. Andy led Mosaic to victory despite Kelly and Maria, who doubted his vision. Elizabeth melted as project manager for Apex, and their intimidating campaign scared everyone who saw it. Ultimately it was Elizabeth’s poor leadership that got her fired in the boardroom. 10 candidates are left – who will be fired this week? Speculation in the suite is that Elizabeth is gone, and when the five [...]

The Cat Who Choked On The Canary – Survivor: Vanuatu, Episode 8

[i]by atarus[/i] We start off the episode in the Lopevi camp. They are talking about the TC, and Chris says “we stay five, we’re solid and we can go to the end.” Julie says that she was glad that she was still there, she thought she was going home. We then get our dose of sexual tension, as Julie snuggles up to Sarge at the campfire. Chad remarks “at first I thought she was just cold, but the fire started blazing and she still snuggled [...]
