I'm kicking myself for missing the episode of Trading Spouses that featured the crazy lady. I saw the commercials and part of the first episode but missed the crazy parts in the second episode. I like crazy. It adds a certain...something to the whole reality show experience. People just going nuts in front of the camera. It should be a staple of all reality shows.
And what's with the new trend in reality show of multiple firings? So far on Donald Trump's Apprentice we've had a quadruple firing and a double-firing; on Martha Stewart's Apprentice we've had a double firing and even on America's Next Top Model we've had the double-firing. I like this trend. But it needs to be bigger. The shows should have dozens of contestants running around, like 30 people per team, and then when it comes time to let someone go, you'd get like 15 people fired. And instead of putting them in a cab everyone fired should be catapulted to the loser hotel. That'd be cool. Or putting the losers on one of those Segway scooters and have them putter around New York City aimlessly. And when will we introduce violence into these shows? It's about time. Someone should figure it out.
One show I'm starting to enjoy is ABC's Supernanny. It goes against the grain of what I normally enjoy as it lacks the elements of humiliation that I enjoy so much in other reality shows. But darn it all if I'm not enjoying it. "Supernanny" Jo Frost visits a family in need of some guidance on how to deal with their children, and Jo comes in and whips everyone into shape and before you know it, BAM! Every single problem is solved. Well, not every problem. But some of them. I suppose if I want humiliation I can tune in to Fox's Nanny 9/11. It's Fox, there has to be some humiliation involved.
