Last week, I named my top reality TV whores of the year, people who used and abused reality TV to advance their own pathetic careers, unlike me. This week, it’s time to be positive, and examine those moments and shows that gave us joy, happiness, and killer catchphrases like “bye bye, bitches.” I’ll be back next week with more real news.
Thanks for reading in 2005, have a happy new year, and here’s to a fantastic 2006.
- Big Brother 6. The sixth season of CBS’ summertime show started as most seasons begin: slow and tedious. While Julie Chen’s robotics were fun, the theme, a “summer of secrets”, was lame as usual. But soon, an alliance formed, and its members decided they were better than the rest of the people in the house. Thanks to the HOH rules, and to a player named Kaysar, that alliance was quickly shattered, and our summer changed forever. Kaysar screwed up and was evicted twice, the second time after America voted him back in just to spite the alliance. Kaysar may have lit the match, but it was Janelle who carried the torch, standing in for us as she ripped the other alliance (“bye bye, bitches!”). But the most fun was a group of people who were so hate-worthy they even called us “pieces of shit.” That’s interactive TV.
