Jonathan, Victoria shoot VH1 reality pilot.
VH1 has produced a pilot for a reality TV series starring The Amazing Race 6 couple Jonathan Baker and Victoria Fuller. “VH1 cameras started following them this week as they work out new business deals and live their lives at home,” The New York Daily News reports. Victoria, who appears in Playboy this month [NSFW], says, “Basically it’s John and I, and the arc of fame, from going on a reality show, being dumped off on the end, and what happens when you come out on the other side.” She says there won’t be a shortage of conflict on the show: “People like flawed characters. It’s all great and fun. People want to know you have problems, so there will be an element of that. Is he pushing me? No. Will we be at each other’s throat to that degree? No. But we still will be bickering, we still will be fighting because that’s who we are.”
