Reality Wrap Up – 26SEP08

It was a big week in reality world.  Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency was as crazy as ever.  Last week we got a hint that Polina Tretiakova may be bulimic.  If being stick thin and stashing empty cheesecake boxes under your bed is any indication.  Brian Kehoe offered Crystal Truehart his diet advice.  “Go blow some coke.” Janice was so pissed she had him removed from the house and the agency.  He didn’t get back in her good graces when he popped in at the TINTe photo shoot and later at the house.  Even his ex crush, Traci Moslenko, wasn’t missing his nonsense in the house.  She’s too busy busting Xian’s and Chandler’s romance to Janice.  Traci found a love note from Xian to Chandler and slipped it under Janice’s door. Janice is worried about Xian getting hurt by the affair.  They have a girl talk and Xian shares how hard it was growing up gorgeous, a complaint Janice appearently relates to, saying models are perfection so it’s hard to relate to ordinary people.  Oh WHAAAAAA.

Biggest Loser contestants experienced the dreaded week two, which is notorious for weight loss plateaus.  Undeterred, Coleen and her dad Jerry risked it all by bidding they could lose 2.4% of their starting weight (14 pounds).  If the succeeded, they would win $10,000, but if they failed, they would automatically fall below the yellow line.  Coleen did her part, losing a whopping 6 pounds.  The girl earned it though because she had to compete by herself in a reward challenge.  The players would slide down a hill and then have to sprint back up in the allotted time.  Since Jerry had to sit out, Coleen didn’t get a break, completing every round for her team. She went 16 rounds before she gave up.  Ed and Heba won the challenge and got a phone call from home. They also got to pick another pair to receive a call and they chose Amy and Phil.  In the end,Coleen and Jerry only lost 11 pounds, but they were better off then Joe and LT.  LT actually gained 3 pounds so it was the perfect opportunity to send the Grey Team back to Boston.

Project Runway is down to 6 designers and they’re asked to take on the toughest client yet – each other.  Not only that, the design has to reflect a specific music genre.  Korto wasn’t thrilled when she learned she’d have to design menswear for Suede, plus she had to make it punk. She was even less happy when she found out her outfit would be country.  The one who really missed the mark was Kenley designing for Leanne.  She was supposed to create a hip hop look and ended up with soccer mom in hoops.  Not only was her outfit ugly, but her attitude was too. She got really defensive with Tim and the judges.  Suede was booted, but I think it was due to his annoying habit of referring to himself in the third person, rather than his rock and roll design.  The best part of the show of seeing LL Cool J drop in as a guest judge.

Survivor Gabon premiered with a two hour episode and double eviction.  The contestants were split into two tribes: Fang and Kato.  So far, Fang is the serious underdog, losing three out of three challenges and failing to find a leader.  During the first tribal council, GC (Golden Child) was railroaded into taking the title of leader, but he quit by the next day.  No one was willing to step in to the void, even after they lost two more challenges.  The first player to be eliminated was Michelle, due to her negative, whining attitude.  Gillian, on the flip side, was the tribe’s cheerleader, but she couldn’t keep up in the challenges so she was eliminated next.

Reality TV Wrap Up – 05SEP08

It’s been a slow season in Reality TV World. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of shows on, just few I care to write about.  I have been blogging on Big Brother, because the drama is just too delicious.  The end is in sight now that it’s down to the final four.  

 

Dan went back on his deal with Ollie and back doored Michelle. Michelle was voted out and the houseguests were surprised with a double elimination week. Ollie didn’t even have a moment to plot his revenge, because Keesha won HOH and put him and Jerry on the block. Ollie was voted out, leaving Jerry in hostile territory.  Jerry’s only hope of staying in the house was to win HOH – which he did.  He went from humble pie to Hitler in about 2 seconds.  Memphis kept himself off the block when he offered Jerry a deal to go to the final two. Memphis has the same deal with Keesha and Dan.  Jerry put Keesha and Dan on the block – but when Memphis won POV he took Dan off.  Jerry was pissed but he had no choice other than putting Renny up. Renny was evicted leaving Keesha, Memphis, Dan and Jerry- the final four.  We also got to see the jury house. Libra was thrilled to see April walk in the door. I don’t think she was thrilled to see Michelle and Ollie arrive next, because now she’s really outnumbered.  Hopefully they can all get along since there’s no money at stake.  Last night Dan won HOH – all indications point to Keesha and Jerry going on the block this week.

 

Project Runway designers had a high fashion challenge, with guest judge Diane von Furstenberg. They had to design a 40’s inspired outfit for a tough dame, one who might travel from Berlin to Shanghai carrying military secrets. Leanne finally came out of her shell and delivered a gorgeous gown with caplet overcoat.  Stella couldn’t get her groove back working with tweed and was eliminated.

 

Thankfully there are plenty of my favorite shows starting in September.  

 

The Amazing Race premieres September 28th with more pairs battling to come in first.  I like the way the Amazing Race picks all sorts of pairs, couples, friends, parents and children and even divorced couples. It’s interesting to see how they all interact. 

 

Survivor Gabon premieres September 25th and it promises to be another exciting season. The competition is back in Africa, with competitors from all walks of life. That’s what makes this show so interesting – the cultural clashes and buried prejudices.  Although I still think the last few seasons the players have had it too easy, with fruit & fish – some of them actually gained weight!  If they’re going to get a million bucks, they should have to suffer and starve!   Now that’s entertainment.

 

Speaking of suffering and starving – my absolute favorite Reality TV Diva, Janice Dickinson is back!  I absolute adore her. Sure, she’s brash and bossy, obnoxious, annoying and downright rude – but she’s also honest, motherly and smart.  You have to admire a woman who overcame personal hardships, sexual abuse and alcoholism, to rise to the top of the modeling industry.  Whether you love her or hate her, you have to admit Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency is addictive TV!  I’m so happy to see my favorite models again: JP Calderone, CC Fontana and Traci Moslenko.  JP is just as sweet as ever (sweet eye candy too) and CC still looks up to Janice and wants to please her.  Traci has gotten a little pudgy in her off time and she’s gotten an agent with hopes of getting into film. Neither of which went over well with Janice.  In fact, this week Janice told her she had 2 wks to get her bod in shape and commit to modeling or she’s cut from the agency.  CC also got on Janice’s bad side when she showed up an hour late to a photo shoot.  There are also new faces in the crowd, including Xian Mikol who is drop dead gorgeous, Chandler Maness and Polina Tretiakova.  Xian and Chandler have a mutual attraction while Polina and Maurice Townsell are flirting too. Just to turn up the heat, these hotties are living in the same house with Mama Janice watching their every move.
