blind item suggests producers sabatoged something, then had cast member removed.
Gossip columnists’ “blind” items generally bore me, as they’re either so completely vague that they have half a dozen different solutions, or they’re just incomprehensible. But “New York’s hottest young gossip columnist,” Ben Widdicombe, dropped a semi-interesting, reality TV-related blind item late last week. It suggests that a reality TV show is basically fixed, as producers had someone removed when that person “wouldn’t play along.” Here’s the item:
“Which reality star was offered a spot in the show’s final four if he admitted on camera to an act of sabotage against a rival that was actually carried out by the producers? He wouldn’t play along and was duly axed.”
