April Fool’s Day is always tricky. One never knows what’s real or simply a prank. At first glance, I thought this was a joke, but it seems legitimate. Unless of course, FOX and Kellan Lutz went to extreme lengths to punk everyone.
The network announced a new one-hour unscripted challenge series for the ultimate weekend warrior. Four men and four women each episode will test their their bodies and brains in three ultimate challenges that ask nothing more than for them to hit the BULLSEYE- literally. At the end, the last person standing walks away (if they still can get on their feet) $50,000 richer.
“I am a huge fan of extreme sports, and for me, nothing beats an adrenaline rush, which is why I am so excited to host this series,” Lutz said in a statement. “I love the concept of physicality and strategy combined with the most awesome challenges that will blow your mind. I am looking forward to watching these competitors push themselves out of their comfort zones and I’ll be on the sidelines cheering them on.”
Comedian Godfrey co-hosts alongside Lutz. Bullseye debuts on Wednesday, May 27. Check out the promo below where individuals transform themselves literally into human cannonballs. It’s Wipeout meets Fear Factor meets American Ninja Warrior.
Everyone knows Mark and Donnie, but how about Paul? He’s another one from the Wahlberg clan. You’ll get to know more about this brother if you tune in to A&E’s upcoming docu-series titled Wahlburgers.
The show chronicles Mark & Donnie heading back to their native Boston to help their older bro out with his new hamburger restaurant. You’ll also get to know their spirited mother Alma. In the teaser, she reveals a time when it wasn’t cool to be her famous sons’ mother. I can only imagine the trouble they got into as kids.
Wahlburgers premieres on A&E on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. Watch the new promo below to find out exactly what’s in a Donnie Double D burger. I hope it has nothing to do with Donnie’s girlfriend, Jenny McCarthy’s breasts. I’d much rather have some secret sauce ;)
Call me vanilla, but I’d don’t get the whole golden shower fetish thing. To each their own though. With that in mind, you can only imagine my reaction to watching Ke$ha’s latest antic on her MTV reality show, Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life. Beautiful, not so much. Crazy, hellz yeah.
The 26-year-old pees in a bottle while riding in a vehicle. She then proceeds to offer her fellow passengers a whiff. Ummm, thanks but no thanks. Judging by her reaction, it’s a safe bet drinking her own urine won’t become a regular habit despite hearing “it was good for you.” I can only imagine how gnarly her pee tastes like. Watch the whole stunt go down below.
A new show on Logo called Operation: Vacation debuted last weekend and today (Saturday), the second episode will air and it’s worth checking out!
The concept of the reality show is that one selfless person in every episode will be surprised with a well-deserved dream vacation crafted by travel experts and with the secret help of their family and friends. Operation: Vacation taps into everyone’s inner explorer by taking viewers on the trip of someone else’s lifetime! Changing someone’s life starts with changing their perspective – and this show fjords rivers, hikes mountains, crosses oceans and climbs 30,000 feet-to give back to someone who’s always wanted to see the world but hasn’t yet had the chance. Fun, heartwarming, and inspiring, it’s the Extreme Makeover of travel shows! The show is hosted by Karl Schmid and Claire Newell.
I’ve included the first episode below if you want to check it out, as well as a preview of the series as a whole. Looks like there are lots of tearjerking moments to come!
This is amazing. A new reality show called Golden Gays is premiering on Slice tonight and it’s all about the fabulously and unpredictable life of the gay and gray in Palms Springs. The parties are legendary, the residents are eccentric and everyone knows a good plastic surgeon!
The show follows some of Palm Springs’ most outrageous and neurotic residents. From the Sex In The City style writer, to the single vegan lesbian looking for love, to a burly conservative contractor struggling to open his gay resort, there is always comedy and drama galore.
Palm Springs is a desert town like no other and you pretty much always have a good time. Having been to Palm Springs a couple times (and heading there next weekend for White Party), I can say that is true… Too much fun in Homorazzi cast member Adam‘s case. You don’t have to worry about acting your age – nobody else does! Check out the preview below and tune in @ 4:00 PM ET/1:00 PM PT tonight for the first episode!
Ever since reality television became a ratings magnet, there has been some questionable programming by networks trying to out shock and outdo its competitors with ridiculous premises and gimmicks. FOX arguably is one of the biggest offenders.
Over the years, the network has produced such gems as More To Love (a plus-sized Bachelor type dating show), Playing It Straight (a woman dates a group of men trying to figure out which one is gay/straight), Temptation Island (seemingly happy couples are tempted to cheat with hot singles on an island), The Littlest Groom (another Bachelor-type show involving dwarfs) and of course Mr Personality (a dating show with Monica Lewinsky as host featuring masked men). And those are just the ones off the top of my head.
One of the most maligned and criticized reality offering by the network is making a comeback. FOX just announced they’ve greenlit a past show but with a celebrity twist. Find out which one below and how the network plans to execute it with “stars” and I use that term loosely. Keep reading to find out.
Ke$ha has had a pretty incredible ride in her career thus far and certainly has made her mark and stood out from the rest in her own way. Like other pop stars, who she is as an artist extends beyond her music and is part of who she is and how she lives her life. Now, Ke$ha is giving fans a glimse into that life with a new MTV reality docu-series titled, Ke$ha: My Crazy, Beautiful Life.
“You might have heard my voice on the radio, seen me onstage or in a music video, but that’s only part of the story,” Ke$ha says. “With this documentary series I’m revealing a more complete picture of what my life is really like. It’s not all glamorous but it’s all real. I want you to come on a whirlwind journey with an all-access pass to My Crazy Beautiful Life.”
Did you watch the premiere of Tionne Watkins aka T-Boz’s new reality show the other day on TLC? If you didn’t, here’s a brief rundown. Totally T-Boz is a four-part series chronicling her attempted comeback and her plans to reinvent herself. The 42-year-old R&B singer discusses her life since the death of TLC member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes which includes a divorce, raising her 12-year-old daughter Chase, a brain tumor which robbed her of her speech, sight and hearing, along with her ongoing battle with Sickle Cell. Girl has had it rough since TLC was in its hey day chasing “Waterfalls.”
As an aside, how is it possible that both T-Boz and Chilli haven’t been able to realize solo albums since Left Eye’s death? Yet the deceased singer has a couple to her credit, including one posthumous one. Given that the series is only four episodes long, I don’t think this comeback will amount to much. It breaks my heart a little because I was such a huge fan of hers, Left Eye and Chilli.
Perhaps, it’s the effects of the brain tumor or another ailment, but Watkins seems a little off on the show. Either that, or the network encouraged her to act a little cray. At times I thought I was watching an older African-American version of Honey Boo Boo. This wasn’t more evident than during her meeting with producer Bangladesh. Just watch the video below as Bangladesh tries to figure out if T-Boz is really serious with her career. Apparently, he’s been burned by her before. Check out the clip below.
