Wednesday Night . American Top Janice World
Let's try something new here on GuyTVBlog.com. Mr. GuyTVBlog is going to discuss my take on the shows I caught last night. And those programs would be American Idol, Top Chef 2 Finale: Part 1, Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency & The Real World: Denver.
American Idol . 2 hours fast forwarded into one hour plus a few minutes. This episode seems like it was re-edited with much thanks to the media's backlash of the judges personal opinion(s) regarding those auditioning.
During the first hour the show teased us about showing a "singer" who left us wondering if it was a man or a woman, a guy or a girl, a penis or a vagina. Usually when the show teases us with a preview of a contestant they show the person's audition from start to finish later in the episode. But this time the he/she she/he it contestant was shown singing for just a few seconds followed by the judges laughing and then the clip was over.
I believe there was more harsh cunty comments to be shown but since American's have been bitchin' about the judges having a valid opinion the show... well someone in the editor's room re-cut it and thus we were left with yet another boring show.
For shame American Idol, for shame! At this point I could give a rats ass who makes it to Hollywood, I tune in for the nutjobs and whackos who KNOW what they're doing as they attempt to be the next William Hung.
Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency . Instinct magazine is a nasty little cunt, I'm right on that... right? They knew exactly what they were doing when they were approaching J.P. [former contestant of Survivor: Cook Islands] for a cover story. So Mike Wood, the editor in chief of Instinct magazine, walked in, didn't want to see any other models, he only WANTED J.P.
He, along with the rest of the gay community, wanted to find out once and for all if J.P. was gay so there is some intent behind his visit to the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. So Mike Wood then told Janice about the "cover catch". The model on the cover of Instinct magazine must be GAY!
When he said that Janice gave him this shocked look, as if she didn't know already, and made a comment that she had no idea if J.P. is gay. So THEN Mike Wood gave her this confused look as if HE was shocked to find out that Janice wasn't sure if he was gay, BULLSHIT!
We all know what Mike Wood was doing there. He was only there to find out if J.P. was gay so that they would have a cover story. Cunty cunt move. Well, I would have done it too, but that's still a rather cunty move.
Next Janice is forced to go to J.P., WITH ALL THE REALITY SHOW CAMERAS, and ask him face to face, without any warning, if he's gay or straight because to be on cover of Instinct magazine, you must be gay. At this point Mike Wood isn't around for the big reveal but he started it.
OHH Shit. I was watching the show while I was writing this and the episode ended with J.P. not revealing if he was gay or straight. What a fucking low blow! But come on, he's gay! Towleroad already revealed that J.P. is gay and the February issue cover shot featuring J.P. So fuck Oprah's Oxygen channel reality show for toying with us. Fuck them.
Don't forget to tune in next week!
Top Chef 2 . An hour and half fast forwarded to a 30 wondeful minutes. The episode started off with all four final chefs getting ready to go to Hawaii. Then they arrive and eat outside with some master chef. Fast foward. Then they arrive at their hotel. Fast forward.
Then they get their challenge. Everyone is doing something different. Ilan is still being a jealous a-hole towards Marcel. And Sam is just sam, trying to keep his hate for Marcel underwraps. And then Top Chef 2's multiple headed villain grew a new head this episode. Elia, the last female chef in the competition, started verbally attacking Marcel and was no longer going to put up with his bullshit.
At one point during the cooking Marcel moved something off a burner and it was Elia's and she assumed he did it on purpose and of course no footage was shown to back up this incident so everyone's left to wonder if Marcel was playing dirty.
In come the judges to sample the food and what do I do... I FAST FORWARD to the last few minutes where the judges figure out who's going to get eliminated. At one point Sam, Ilan and Elia are sitting at a table and talking about Marcel "cheating" the entire series. Of course Ilan is all over this plan of sabatoge and encourages Elia to make a fool of herself.
And so she does. When she and Ilan start bringing up the idea of Marcel cheating all the judges start rolling their eyes and as I was. We're all tired of this shit. Finally the bald judge tells everyone that they are not there to judge the chef's behaviour but the cooking.
But THAT'S BULLSHIT because during Top Chef season one, they told Tiffani Faison that she had to "get along" with the people in the kitchen and that was part of her NOT winning! And now the judges are singing a different tune? What the fuck ever!
Finally Marcel was the first told that he was going into the final round! Yeah! Go Team Marcel! Next Elia was told to pack her fugly knives and then Sam was told to pack his soft spoken knives thus leaving Ilan and Marcel as the final 2.
At the end of the show Ilan was shown telling Marcel that he wanted to make him "cry". Damn it, why can't a season villain win?!?! Marcel started off as this season's villain but then once the entire cast turned their anger towards him they all became the multiple headed villain thus making Marcel the underdog.
And did you know Top Chef finalist Tiffani from season one is a bisexual woman! Wow to that!
The Real World: Denver . This horrible season is making me finally get to that place of leaving The Real World to those who feel young and to those who feel they can relate to the bullshit the show spews. All I want to see is Brooke flip the fuck out and she has yet to do so. Where's that moment where she screams "DON'T YOU EVER TALK TO ME LIKE THAT AGAIN!"?
The Real World Denver sucks. Come on Real World: Sydney, let's get back to what Real World Seattle was all about, Irene getting slapped and Stephen never coming out of the closet.

I really like Top Chef, but I just can't stand the contestants this year. They all suck. Marcel is a jackass and all the rest are as bad or worse. I want them all to lose (but of course I'll still watch). Good point on how kitchen attitude mattered last year. These shows are all about the drama and not the end product, and that's why we like them.

Well Biatchhh, it has been rumored, I believe from Irene herself, that Stephen was cast that year as the gay cast member and he was suppose to come out on the show but when they started tapping he suddenly decided not to come out on the show and remained "straight".
I was talking about Real World Seattle.

Top Chef did not live up to its first season. This season there were almost no personalities to grasp onto. Yes, Marcel trys to act like a "villian" but we all see through that. Elan comes across as a nasty closet queen waiting to pounce on Marcel with some far-out Hispanic dish to win the whole show. He wont.
Marcel wins by a sprig of Wolfbane!!!
None of the drama of last season, either, this 2nd season was a yawn although grant you, some of the food did look great!!!

I like Top Chef, but all of the finalists make me sick. Sam was ok, but that's because I have a huge crush on him.
I am sorry but if Marcel was cheating, then I am sure we would have some footage to see. This petty behavior was ridiculous. Elia threw herself under the bus (the Top Chef phrase of ridiculousness) when she started speaking up about it.
Bravo needs to stop with the bad editing and let us watch a show without manufactured drama.

these shows are all good and great...
but has anyone seen 'gay straight or taken?' on lifetime?
this show is nuts.
i love and adore it.
i'm truly embarrassed to say that my gay-dar seems to be out of commission.
either that or i'm just a sucker for a hot hetero.
for the first episode... i totally thought that luciano was straight.
and was glad to find he's on our team.
you need to watch this show...
so much to learn.

I do think Brooke is funny!
Best Real World seasons: LA, San Fran, Chicago, New Orleans, Paris. Why won't they put them all on DVD?!

Because there's not a huge demand for them Glenderful and the songs that we love to hear during every episode are gone. Music sometimes makes a show and on the DVD the songs are gone and replaced with crap. For me at least it's just not the same show.
Yes some stories don't need music like Pedro's story and I at least expect MTV to release his season. His story is timeless and should be available to those of interest with money and the time to watch the entire season.
