Darva the gold-digger wants out is anyone surprised? It was a matter of time...

Remember when ordinary people would gain fame and recognition from doing good things and contributing to society? Her comments about not knowing what she was doing there and how to get out of the ceremony are baffling, and the guy's comments that tried to make it sound "okay" that he let the air out of his ex-girlfriend's tires are a joke that any reasoning person can see right through. Won't anyone take responsibilty for their conduct anymore???

The same information, but with video.

"I would never consider having sexual relations with anyone I just met."

Of course, she'd *MARRY* someone she just met, but sex just seems so... final.

If you think this is bad, it turns out that CBS has planned to create a true-life version of "Lord of the Flies".

They're going to take some "contestants" and dump them on a tropical island, and film them while they try to survive. The mind boggles.

What happens if the lot of them come down with malaria, which has been known to occur on tropical islands? Marvelous, we can watch chills and fever live, in prime time. Where's my popcorn? (Even with modern medical treatment, it can take as long as ten years to get over malaria. It's fatal about 5% of the time.)

Hey! Let's use Guadalcanal! Thousands of Japanese servicemen starved there in 1942; it'll make a GOOD test! That way we can mix in the backstory of the battle which was fought there, nice and patriotic.

I tell you: within the next five years, some TV channel (Court TV?) will actually broadcast an execution. It's definitely coming.

Which first: an execution or use of the word "fuck"?

We're talking non-cable, prime time. My bet's on the former.

Well, it's certain that we'll see an execution before we see sexual intercourse on non-cable primetime.

Hey, don't dis SURVIVOR! I was thinking it'd be worth it just to spend 6 weeks on an island. Like The Real World, only they don't make you get lame starbucks jobs.

I hear that Celebrity Survivor will have Marlon Brando as the reigning Island Iron Chef... oh wait, I think I'm mixing shows...

How could she rant now, "I had no where to escape?", Well maybe at the end of the show BEFORE HE MAKES HIS CHOICE, the "5" golden choices were given 30 seconds to speak "Why should his man pick you?"

HMMM, Here's a shot....no instead she, "Wished for someone to travel to new places as well as experience life together forever."

Be careful what you wish for...

My latest discovery in the "how low you can go TV sweepstakes" is HGTV's "Dream House" (Mondays ay 10:30PM E/P, no link 'cause there's nothing on HGTV's website). It's Bob Vila meets Jerry Springer. The show recruits some fool to let their cameras follow his do-it-yourself home building or remodeling project and, over 13 episodes, he (3 out of 4 series so far) screws up, goes broke, loses friends, etc. Ah, the sheer joy of watching a man's face as an inspector tells him his home is unimhabitable!!!

There are already 2 survivor shows on TV here in the UK, one is taking 16 people between the ages of 18 and 30 and dumping them on a desert island (after about 6 weeks they hate each other and have burned down their camp - see under 'Shipwrecked').
The other has taken people from all walks of life, put them on a Hebridean island (off the coast od Scotland - v. cold & wet) and left them there for a year. 'Tune in next year and see who's left...'

As long as they hunt wild pigs and dump bolders on each other like in Lord of the Flies it should be fun.
