Addicted to Reality


It's definitely reality TV season...Last night was episode #1 of the 5th season of Project Runway....I loves me some PR, but last night's episode really left me wanting more. I HATE that the designer's first challenge was a return to Gristedes Market, where they we each given $75 to purchase materials for their outfit.

We've already seen this challenge before (Season 1)...I think that it's a total waste of time, and so unrealistic to force the designers to come up with a great outfit, using only items bought in a market. Yeah, yeah, I know the goal of this challenge is to see just how innovative they can be, but there are so many other ways to show your talent.

I did enjoy seeing Austin Scarlett as a guest judge on last night's epsiode...I swear, he's turning into a woman.


There are 2 other reality TV shows that I'm currently addicted to. One of them is Shear Genius and the other is Design Star on HGTV. There is (was) one designer on Design Star that I was secretly desiring to see, how do you say....nekkid...and I got my wish. That designer is Michael Verdugo aka Mikey V. It turns out that Mikey has a gay porn past.....gasp!


Mikey once starred in a bondage video titled Rope Rituals, under the alias Jeremy Wess. Poor Mikey got kicked off of Design Star last Sunday, but the judges cited his "poor hosting skills", and not his gay porn past.

Mikey is a 34-year old police officer back in Florida...let's just hope that the boys back at the station never find out about his little secret.

I know I should respect his privacy and keep the following info to myself, but I'm in a bit of a mood today, so here's a link to some nakey pics of the hottie & of the video he's made...it is definitely NSFW !

This season's cast of Project Runway left me feeling unimpressed last night. I hope it was simply a matter of everyone trying to settle into their 'roles'.

Austin Scarlet IS a woman!

I've also been watching Design Star and am now voting for hairy Matt, since muscle-bound Mikey V was eliminated.

I love PR too. Although, I had no idea it was a new season last night. Thanks for the tip.

I have never seen the other shows you mentioned. I will have to check it.

Yah, the new cast on Runway are as bland as water.

Although I wouldn't mind seeing Keith Bryce nekkid.

Mark: Me too...I actually thought that Matt was voted off already...glad to see that Tracy got her show canceled!

DIT: They'll be playing repeats of last night's epsiode all week I'm sure.

BD: I hope Keith only works shirtless....or bottomless.

While addicted to Project Runaway, I have only seen Design star hit or miss (Loved when the one blond man was voted off and he cried in the exit interview saying, "I just want my mom...") and have so far avoided Shear Genius.

I will confess, but only because you have already confessed your sins, that I am addicted to Legally Blonde The Search For The Next Elle Woods. So embarrassing.

A word of warning on Projectile Runway. Since the show is movie to Lifetime next season and the producers are not moving with it, they decided to re-do A LOT of old challenges. Get you Tivo set, you're going to want to fast forward...

Christopher said...

Jim: Yes...I giggled when that little blonde was crying for mama...never seen Legally Blonde though...you're so gay Jim!

Christopher said...

I think Austin should have won season 1, becuase I thought that Jay's stuff was so boring!

Silly Billy said...

Um, am I the only one was was totally turned on by that video of Mikey V?????

Uggghh - I am disappointed about PR. A once innovative show, steps above other "reality" style shows has now reduced itself to looking for types and casting people who are already succesful in their chosen fields (although I don't know why at this point). One of them even appears to have thought of a catchphrase to use just prior to coming on the show as a result of watching previous series of the show (the annoying one who adds -icious to everything - seriously WTF with his Heatherette wannabe outift?).

I did like the coffee filter dress but wish she had done something better with the top.

Anyway...maybe it will get better...

Big Brother 10 is where it is at.

Michael Guy said...

I bet Vern Yip has Verdugo's video collection already. Just saying.

And I'd wager he can kiss his police officer career goodbye.

This is the internet; buzz happens.

That Scarlett girl really creeps me out.

I am excited for the second episode of PR. I have heard some rumblings on several blogs that there is a gay romance between two of the male designers! I do not like Bryce though...
