Jana Richards' blog to discuss Reality TV Shows: Love 'em or hate 'em? Why are they so popular? I hope you stop over and check out Carnivalesque: The Travelling Blog Show. As usual, I'll be joined by my good writing friends Jana Richards, Karyn Good, Hayley E. Lavik and Joanne Brothwell. Should be an interesting discussion! And we're including Twitter this week, so if you want to jump in there and add your two cents, we're using the hashtag: #blogshow!
Oh, and because we're lumping all reality TV together and I don't want to take away from the Jana's question for the week - let me just say here, on the Journal, that I really, really wanted Kim to win The Biggest Loser! But, I give Jeremy his due - he did lose over 50% of his body weight. And at least it wasn't his sister who won the big money! I was unimpressed with this year's show (and the grumbling, manipulative, not-nice contestants that populated it). I hope next year they go back to the format of people who are really trying to lose weight and get healthy versus those who think The Biggest Loser is just Survivor for the overweight!
Whew, glad I got that off my chest ;)
