My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
Did not answer in the form of a question
You don’t remember Zev & Justin? Zev has Asperger’s Syndrome, and Justin is his buddy. They wound up winning the fourth leg in TAR15 . . . only to realize that they lost their passports. Justin found his in the bag, but it turned out that Zev lost his in a temple that they crashed before finishing the leg. By the time they glumly came back to Phil Keoghan empty-handed, they got eliminated.
For a WTF selection, go to Amanda & Kris, who lasted four legs in TAR14. I don’t remember them at all. Also, I question the inclusion of Jaime and Cara, the former Miami Dolphins cheerleaders (an occupation shared by Brenda from Survivor: Nicaragua), between they sucked as Racers, and one of them was a bitch (I couldn’t tell ’em apart). In at least one site (Television Without Pity), Margie & Luke are set to be the main villains, mostly because of their TAR14 feud with Kisha & Jen. Personally, I think she’s overprotective of him because he’s deaf, and he can be a little bitch at times . . . and that’s the extent of it. If I’m right, there won’t be a raging asshole team, and we could have a good season . . . or at least better than the last “all-star” season (TAR11), where the totally undeserving Eric & Danielle won their only leg in the finale to get $1 million.
As for Survivor: it’s sad when Mark Burnett has to look towards Real World/Road Rules Challenge for inspiration. It’s one big whose-dick-is-bigger contest between Russell (lack of social game negates the good stuff he can do) and Rob (easily the most overrated contestant in the show’s history), and I heard they’ll be “coaching” their respective tribes, which translates to them automatically making the merge. I don’t know if that’s true, but host Jeff Probst basically said that if you’re not a fan of Russell’s shenanigans, you’re not a fan of the show. And that’s why he’ll never measure up to Phil.
What if they use robot dogs in the dog shows?
What’s wrong with “a bag of fries”? If you’re good, do you get fish with them?
