fox reality channel
I love how she's looking for someone between the ages of 18 and 71 (why 71 and not 70 or 75?). So you could be Taylor Lautner or you could be Patrick Stewart and have an equal chance!
Well, the actual day won't come until March 31 2010, but we can start celebrating now, can't we? The channel itself will probably survive in one way or another. FOX has ideas for the channel that it might want to do and that would mean the the channel would have an entirely different theme and focus. Which is fine with me, even if the channel had such awesome original shows like American Idol Extra, The Search For The Next Elvira, Gimme My Reality Show! and Who Wants To Date A Puppet? (OK, I made up that last one.)
Reality fans take note however: the last Really Awards will air on October 17.
"She's gorgeous. People want to look at her. She's hot," says Reynolds. Still, it's no excuse. "This was obviously an inside job; someone knew her schedule. That's kinda creepy. I worked for the NFL for ten years, and I trust everyone there implicitly. And for that trust to be broken is kinda creepy."
It's the broadcast equivalent of a really bad cold sore, the kind you know deep down will only go away if you just leave it alone. But the longer you leave it be, the more you can hear it calling your name, begging you to touch it, asking you to fondle it, pleading with you to lick it like a drunken prom date.
Every time my remote fumbles past the FRC in search of something worth watching, it's hard not to stop in and see just how low they can sink to grab your attention. My mind always asks the same question when I dare to poke the reality show behemoth with a stick during its slumber: "Just how low can the network that created Cops, World's Wildest Police Chases, and When Animals Attack 2 go?" As it turns out, pretty damn low as evidenced by Smile...You're Under Arrest.
But based on the players, something tells me these guys won't be hanging around the house watching QVC. There's Darryl M. Bell (A Different World), husband of The Cosby Show's Tempestt Bledsoe; Grant Reynolds, husband of Good Day LA's Jillian Reynolds; former L.A. Dodger Billy Ashley, and others.
What would you say if I told you that there were going to be 33 new reality shows debuting this year? Would you say that was too much? I certainly would. But it's not true anyway. There aren't 33 new reality shows that are going to launch this year.
There are 172.
That's right, according to the people over at the FOX Reality Channel (oh, there's a network that's not on my favorites lineup) there will be 172 new reality shows launched this year: 32 on the broadcast networks and 140 on cable.
Bingham, who played Jordin Tate on Baywatch, has also appeared on VH1's Surreal Life 2 and Celebrity Boot Camp. Rice appeared on the second season of Project Runway and finished in the semi-finals. Bonaduce was on VH1's Breaking Bonaduce which chronicled the life of her husband and former child-star Danny Bonaduce.
That's it? They need to get some Idol alums in there. I'm thinking Sanjaya, just so the rest of the cast can ridicule him. Also, I would love to see one of the guys from I Love New York. Say, Mr. Boston? Who would you like to see on Gimme My Reality Show?
Gimme My Reality Show will premiere on October 11th at midnight, right after the Fox Reality Really Awards.
In case the title of this post wasn't enough warning, the video clip after the jump does in fact show a man vomiting, so if that's not your thing, don't watch it.
Before appearing on Kennedy's Fox Reality series Reality Rewind, Drawn Together co-creator Matthew Silverstein drank some ipecac on a dare (presumably a dare from co-creator Dave Jeser, who also appeared) and, no big surprise, he lost his lunch during the interview. Kennedy decides to step away, so Jeser takes over as interviewer and continues to ask Silverstein questions, which Silverstein answers between fits of vomiting. I don't find vomiting in and of itself all that funny, but the fact that they just kept going while he was vomiting made me laugh. Also, compared to the episodes of Drawn Together I've seen, this is probably the funniest thing these two men have ever done. Seeing Silverstein vomit is one thing, but watching Drawn Together just makes me sick.

If you wonder who on earth I'm talking about, Rob and Amber were both on Survivor and became a couple on Survivor: All-Stars, which Amber won. They placed second in The Amazing Race (the devilish side of me rooted for them) and they got married in a reality special last year. The Project premieres in January.
