Kicked Off for Cheating on 'True Beauty' (VIDEO)

Kicked Off for Cheating on 'True Beauty''True Beauty' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC) is a reality show that judges people based on their "inner beauty." Strangely, the series only seems to pick really hot men and women while looking for "inner beauty," but, well, whatever.

The other thing about the show is that the players are not told about the true nature of the contest. All the contestants think they are being analyzed as models. They believe they are scored based solely on their outer appearance. But the audience and the judges know better.

On the latest episode, we have a bit of a scandal. A contestant named Regina has violated the rules by using her cell phone to contact outsiders -- and by doing this, she manages to learn what the show is really about.

[Spoiler alert.]

The judges are outraged by this! Or at least, they sort of halfheartedly act outraged, which is nearly as good. Then, Regina is kicked off the show for having called people on her phone.

Okay. We're going to take a bold stance here -- and take Regina's side.

Yes, she broke the rules of the show. On the other hand, the contest is supposedly about "inner beauty"; that is, about acting in the right way. In the meantime, everyone on the series is actively lying to all the players about what's going on. A bit of a conundrum, no? If you want to judge people on whether they are acting well, then you have to act well yourself. And lying to people in order to get them on a reality show is not "acting well." That's our theory, at least.

So, congrats, Regina! You lost, but you also broke the unfair rules of a somewhat creepy reality show. And so, we salute you.

Regina should not have gone home. We loved her...cute, sassy and a stand up gal. This show is rigged! TEAM REGINA ALL THE WAY!

This article says it all. Plus Regina did not call people. She called one person. Her mom. once. Before anything even got started.
So she did break the rules but they waited until it suited them to use it to their advantage. To create Drama. I am soa glad she's got out of there!!!
