Fox Reality’s Reality Remix Really Awards winners announced

Last week, the Fox Reality Channel took reality TV to its next logical step and held an awards show named after their nightly recap series. The Reality Remix Really Awards, besides having a lot of Rs in the title, was held at Mike “Boogie” Malin’s restaurant Les Deux, and featured a lot of reality celebrities getting trashed, which is pretty much their normal state. (TVgasm has behind-the-scenes photos from the event).

Those that get Fox Reality may have seen the award ceremony last Friday night or repeated this week. The rest of us get to read the press release. Only the last category, most memorable performer, was voted by viewers via the network’s web site, and it’s unclear how the rest were selected.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
