Sucky Reality TV Night for me!!!  
Crappy, crappy, crappy night for reality TV for me tonight. Not overall, but in three of the four reality shows I watch, I lost faves. Sniff, sniff.



Survivor - Fear not, Ozzy is safe. YAY!!! Joel went and he was nicely blind-sided. Unlike many who believe that Cirie played Amanda and Ozzy, I actually think it was simply a case of what she said made sense, and the favorites would still be in the lead numbers-wise.

American Idol - Good news, bad news. Brooke is safe. YAY. Danny is gone. BOO!!!!!!! Damnit. There goes much of the entertainment value of the season and he never really got over whatever was holding him back to keep him from letting it rip vocal-wise. Ah well. As long as Brooke is around, so will I be. But she may be all that keeps me hanging on. We'll see.

Celebrity Apprentice - Yes, I watch it. So there. Omarosa got fired. Damn. She was entertaining as hell. Well, the good news is that I now have one hour less of TV to watch each week, cuz this went bye-bye on my DVR with her departure.

Make Me a Supermodel - Ah, Frankie. Frankie, Frankie, Frankie, a million more times a model than Ben will EVER be. Sigh. Yeah, there goes another hour free in my week. Heck, I got an extra one tonight because once it was revealed he was cut, I delete tonight's episode. Ah, Frankie, I loved ya, boy!

I watch the Celebrity Apprentice, too -- but I'm not surprised to hear about Omarosa. She was going down in flames from the horse and buggy challenge onward...Trump was determined to fire her. (though this means my mother will continue to watch now...heh. I'm still rooting for a Trace/Piers F2. :)

I wasn't Danny's biggest fan, but I enjoyed his Tues performance, and he DEFINITELY deserved to be there over Chikeze/Jacuzzi. :x (though I still hope Amanda doesn't make the tour -- she. does. not. want. to. be. there -- seriously!!!)

I didn't think Cirie "played" the other two, but I think she definitely orchestrated Joel's booting. She's a force to be reckoned with this year. :x

I know I'm alone in my Oma love, LOL! I honestly think it was the accusation of him being in the closet that really sealed it for me. It does bother me because it really is unfair when it's a money game and Piers clearly has RIDICULOUS contacts who will fork over so. much. money for charity. It wouldn't have mattered who was on the opposite team, Piers team would have kicked their ass ... because he has RIDICULOUS contacts. I guess, if she was going to go, I just wish that it had been on a task that it truly was her fault. Ah well.

I loved my Danny. ::Sniffsniff::

Oh, she did orchestrate the booting, but she succeeded because Ozzy and Amanda LISTENED to her very real logic instead of dismissing it out of hand. And THAT could turn out to be just as key in the long run as Cirie bringing it up. A heckuva lot of Survivors in the past (and in this game) wouldn't have let logic rule their decision.

I'm not underestimating her, though. She's good, but I wouldn't say "this year," because she essentially pulled off what should have been impossible her season too. She was expected to be one of the first boots, and she made it top four (I think)? Girl's got skillz!

Absolutely. Not only that, he's from the UK, so they can afford to give more (with the pound worth so much more than the dollar). I wish more of the tasks were judged more on a qualitative vs. quantitative basis (which completely sums up my annoyance when Piers' team was the horse and buggy challenge -- Empressario created a much nicer experience with happier customers, and the only thing Hydra did better was have better contacts. :x )

I guess, if she was going to go, I just wish that it had been on a task that it truly was her fault.

Good point. Interestingly, he didn't fire two celebrities for the worst defeat EVAH, when he fired FOUR people in that one task a few years ago (Dick's Sporting Goods -- remember?) for what was previously the worst defeat EVAH. Geez, double standards much, Trump? :x

True. And I guess I'm just surprised to see her do so well in a year with a lot of supposed "power" players. I know there's more than one way to be "powerful," and she's certainly not dealing with the brightest bulbs on the string with Parvati and James. Still...I guess I never expected her to be this effective again (didn't people watch her season?)
