Always the Bridesmaid – The Apprentice 2, Episode 10

by aurora Before we get to this week’s episode, I’d like to address the mail I’ve been getting about my reviews. It seems that if I even hint that Jennifer M isn’t the end-all be-all of human existance, people are upset. For the record, I like Jen. Really and truly, I do. Out of a whole team of women, most of them were just embarassing to the gender, and Jen stood out among them as someone who was willing to work hard and stand up [...]

It's A Giant Buddha! – Rebel Billionaire, Premiere Episode Part 2

[i]by atarus[/i] The second part of the premiere episode starts off with Branson telling the contestants that the next assignment will be divided into two teams, the men vs. the women. Both teams need a team leader. The women choose Sara, who says if she loses her neck will be on the line again, and she wonders if it wasn’t a strategy from the women. The men want to pick Shawn because he’s been to China and speak Chinese, but he doesn’t want to, so [...]

Beware the Cinnamon Bun – The Biggest Loser, Episode 3

by aurora We kick things off this week with a quick recap of episode two – both teams were shocked at the diminished weight loss during their second weigh-in. Jillian arrives to boost her army’s morale, which has suffered a beating after losing the weigh-in and subsequently team member Lizzeth. Jillian decides to shake things up a bit, because the Red team’s bodies are in shock. She wants to increase their calories with healthy foods, and decrease the workout regime just a bit. She thinks [...]

With Friends Like This … – The Bachelor 6, Episode 7

by LauraBelle Relationships that are going to last a lifetime need to have security from the get-go. A relationship begun on a reality show especially has to bide by that golden rule, as it’s tough enough to start out amongst the glare of lights and intense romantic situations, without the constant worry over where your man is and who he is with. Byron will visit the three remaining women’s hometowns over the next few days to meet the women’s friends. First up is Tanya’s hometown [...]

Tarantulas, Attitudes and Toodles – ANTM Episode 7

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos This episode started with Tyra talking to her mama about her concerns with Cassie and her eating disorder. Tyra’s mom gave her some good advice — you can’t help everyone. Sometimes, they have to want to help themselves. Then, we cut to the girls ruminating over the critiques that they’ve received thus far. Toccara seems to have been affected the most. She’s not her shining self. It’s sad that criticism has dampened her spirits. The thing I loved most about [...]

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 [...]
