Running with Reindeer, 'Whisker Wars'Sometimes the fun of watching reality television is so you can live vicariously through the antics of other people. That way you can experience things you might never otherwise explore in your real life. Things like running with reindeer with 'Whisker Wars' (Fri., 11PM ET on IFC).

Sure, it looks fun on TV, but in reality it's a crazy, dangerous and exhilarating thing to do. So when Miletus Callahan-Barile decided to take part in the Running of the Reindeer of Alaska, we could get a taste of how fun that looks without having to deal with the cold or risk life and limb.

Granted, it's not nearly as dangerous, perhaps, as running with the bulls in Spain, but the announcer made sure to let everyone know, "These are the angriest the reindeer have ever been. We're gonna see some injuries today, folks."

Accusations of a Competition Being Rigged on 'Whisker Wars' (VIDEO)

'Whisker Wars'We certainly aren't going to sit here and pretend we know anything about the world of competitive beard growing, but we can say that the second place finisher in the competition we saw on 'Whisker Wars' (Fri., 11PM ET on IFC) certainly didn't sport facial hair nearly as impressive as a lot of the other guys.

His beard looked like something most average guys could grow in a month or so. A lot of the spectators and competitors were calling shenanigans on the judging panel, because both second and third place went to local beards from Portland, Oregon.

Jack Passion took the win in the full beard category, but the fact that a weak beard like Guy Leach took second place, while Aarne Bielefeldt and Bryan Nelson, who each have four times the beard of Pearce, didn't place at all, was pretty fishy to everyone in attendance, and to us as well.

a proposal on 'Whisker Wars'It's not all competitive facial hair-growing on 'Whisker Wars' (Fri., 11PM ET on IFC). Myk, who sports a rather impressive beard of his own, was hosting a competition when he suddenly pulled his long-time girlfriend, Karolina, on to the stage.

At first it was fairly standard thanks for all the hard work she does for the competitions and all of her support, but then he surprised her and the crowd.

"All I got is one question for you, and one quesetion alone," Myk told her. But then, perhaps because he believes actions speak louder than words, he simply pulled out a ring and got down on one knee without any words. Her response was just as silent, but it was a positive one.

whisker wars ifcIntroducing Jack Passion: The self-proclaimed "Muhammad Ali of beards!" That's right. Of beards!

On the Series Premiere of 'Whisker Wars' (Fri., 8PM ET on IFC), the new -- and so far the only -- show about competitive facial hair growing(!), wooly contestant Jack Passion tried hard to nab the spotlight early with some serious boasting and braggadocio ... about his beard.

Needless to say, Jack has a lot of haters.

Depending on who you ask, the bristly-faced boys who make up the Austin Facial Hair Club are either jealous of all the attention Jack's bushy beard is getting, or they're rightfully annoyed by his arrogant attitude (and not so big mustache!).
