I occasionally watch some reality TV. Okay, I am hooked on America's Next Top Model
. I admit that I love watching to see who gets kicked off next. I have my favorites that I root for. And that I feel bad when they are eliminated. Of course, there are always those that I hope get kicked off immediately. And I do mean that. Who wants to see any of the assholes get more air time.
What I don't understand are people who get onto a show and then talk about missing their kids/boyfriend/wife/whatever. They start crying and getting emotional. They start talking about quitting because they can't stand to be away from their whatevers for 3 weeks and they miss them and think they are missing out on their experiences and blah blah blah blah blah. WHAT?!?!?!?! I thought you tried out for this because it was your dream? Sounds more like your nightmare. Then again, I should not be surprised. I have always said that everyone who goes on reality TV just wants to get on TV. They don't want to be the Next Whatever. It's all about air time. It's all about attention.
I also don't get it when people complain about how hard it is to do something. You know - like sit in front of a camera and get your picture taken. Or learn some of the simplest choreography known to man. I can't even imagine how hard it is. I am sure striking a pose or gyrating your hips can be torturous. I've tried it at home and I need a nap afterward.
Nonetheless, I still show up for reruns/re-broadcasts of both shows. Maybe I should start making fun of myself rather than the contestants on both shows. Later.
