While we're still reeling from the surprising and unfathomable shocker of Hosea winning the Top Chef prize this week, we decided to look back at some other reality show contestants who didn't deserve their titles either. There have been quite a few, and heck, we could have probably made most of this list with just Survivor players (Amber and Tina, we're looking in your general direction). And that's not even counting people whom we just didn't like, even though they earned their wins, like Hung, Fantasia, Mike Boogie, Flo and Zach (OK, mostly just Flo). So if we we're in the business of revoking titles, these are the ones that we'd like to take back.
It's Thursday, also known as American Idol results show day (wait, isn't that usually Wednesday?... hush, fool, just be glad it's only on two days a week), also known as the first day in the reign of our new Top Chef (which luckily does not involve any actual responsibilities other than shilling Diet Dr. Pepper during commercial breaks with previous competitors while your eyes scream a quiet "help"), also known as Friday Eve. Hold off on your desire to race headlong into the nearest bar and quell your Thursday thirst just a little longer with these refreshing drops of news.
While I'm still baffled about how Nick Mitchell/Normund Gentle even made it this far in the process (in fact, how he made it to Hollywood is a mystery) now that he's here, I'm kind of hoping that he makes it through. I know it sounds crazy, and even I can't believe that I'm saying it, but if I hadn't had to go watch Lost (which takes every ounce of my concentration) I would have voted for him ... and I rarely vote. But there's something about this sassy pants sparkle-clad man that has me alternately horrified and fascinated by the whole Normund persona. Here's my reasoning on why he should stay.
It's Wednesday, which means that I'm just sitting here trying to will the time to move faster (where's Faraday when I need him?) so that I can get home to indulge in a gluttonous amount of TV, including (but not necessarily limited to) Lost, American Idol, Biggest Loser, Top Chef, Little Miss Perfect and Man v. Food. I have a problem. Do you think Faraday could also find a way to invent a DVR that can record like four things at once? That'd be helpful too. Anyway, to help make the time pass a little more quickly, here's some news.
On the March 4 episode of Lost, we'll see what Sawyer, Jin, Juliet and the rest of the castaways have been up to since they stopped time-traveling and started playing Dharma Initiative. Were they really there for three actual years? At the very least, they must have been there long enough for Jin to get in the habit of rolling up on unwanted visitors in his pimpin' van and pulling a gat on them. Here's what we think's been going on down in Sawyerville since Locke made a deal and spun the wheel.
