I'll openly admit it: I am a reality tv junkie. I like to think that it's because i work in the field of psychology/sociology, and that reality tv serves as a fantastic case study on human behavior. but let's all be honest. i like reality tv because it's mindless entertainment without the guilt of jerry springer. a few of my favorites:
what not to wear
as we enter this summer season, a slew of new reality shows are emerging. i caught the first episode of "hell's kitchen" last week. it was pretty good. all the major networks are debuting their most current attempts at attracting the audiences abandoned by american idol, survivor and apprentice. but even i draw a line at some point. i just witnessed a commercial for the food network's new reality show: FOODIE CALL. this show is a combination of food exploration and dating game. please tell me you already got the word play (booty call). Really? FOODIE CALL? from the network that brings us the awesome bobby flay, the classy rachel ray (rhyme not intended) we get this pathetic show?? wow.
keep in mind that i will shamelessly watch "average joe" and "joe millionare." i wouldn't miss a moment of "america's next top model" or "my big fat obnoxious fiance" and even found myself tuning in to "surreal life." so it's not like i've got major standards here. what is television coming to?
so here's my pledge: i vow to not fall prey to FOODIE CALL. cause i ain't no holla back girl...if you know what i mean.
and you can hold me to that.
