A friend of mine, Jaci Burton, has a book coming out in December about demons, survival experts and a reality show. ~sounds cool, doesn’t it? Finally, a new idea in reality shows. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
But when I was checking it out on her site, I got to thinking about allllll the reality insanity that has struck TV. (Jaci also redid her website and it looks awesome. Sweetie, I’m so jealous. Gimme.)
But on to today’s blog. Reality shows…
There was a reality type contest in the RT mag for authors.
There are reality shows on for clothing designers, self help, models, nannies, and insane people. By insane… I mean… agreeing to be locked into a house/sent off to an island/sent on a crazy race, etc etc etc… along with a whole bunch of people they don’t know, competing for a prize. Sometimes the prize might be worth it… a cool million? Yeah, I’d go live on a deserted island for that.
But I would NOT eat cow brains for it. Nor would I eat horse innards for a mere $25,000. I would use up the bulk of it in therapy after eating that so why bother?
Then there are the contests where you open yourself of for scathing insults and humiliation in hopes of obtaining a record deal. I do have to wonder… the good ones, hey they have a shot and they probably know it, so if they can stomach some of the judges, go for it. But some of them can’t sing their way out of a wet paper bag-the try outs are frightening. Do that think they have a shot or are they just wanting to do it just to do it? It’s a puzzle for sure.
Is it just me or is anybody else tired of the reality show madness? If we’re gonna keep seeing them, I wanna see something new. I don’t want to see tomorrow’s next great chef. Chances are he’s going to end up a resturant I can’t afford, or on a cooking show, or both, and I can’t cook and watch tv at the same time, nor would I mess with looking up the recipe and trying later. Too lazy and mine wouldn’t turn out like that anyway. I don’t want to see some SUPERNANNY rescue a family in distress, terrorized by their kids, and as interesting as 30 Days can be, I don’t want that.
Gimme a new reality idea. Come on… a good one. I’ll either pick my favorite or toss the names in a hat and draw a winner.
Open until I remember to draw the name, probably a few days!
