I remember when I was in middle school and the early years of high school how much I really wanted to be on Real World or Road Rules. As I got older I realized how crazy the majority of the people on the show really were and how I couldn’t avoid the drama by bringing a Playstation. Eventually I realized that people that say and act however they want because “they don’t give a fuck about what ‘you’ think about ‘them'” have far more problems than the people that do and the fascination was gone.
Don’t get me wrong, a good 6 hour marathon of Real World on the weekends is a great way to nurse a hangover, but the new show I find myself drawn to is the Real World/Road Rules Challenges. They basically take the craziest, sluttiest, most desparate (and unhirable) people that have ever been on either show, pump them full of booze, make them perform feats comparable to American Gladiators and dangle a large cash prize at the finish line. It brings out the worst in people and the best of reality TV. Between this and LOST, Wednesday is my favorite night of televison.
