The first season of TLC's Breaking Amish may have been obviously scripted and was eventually revealed to have altered the truth about its cast's relationship with the Amish and Mennonite communities, but at least it was watchable. The culture-shock concept of the series -- helping five young adults get out of their oppressive community, and then throwing them into New York City -- was promising enough, and even if the gang eventually admitted that they didn't exactly go from farm to Breaking Amish, their fish-out-of-water experiences produced some fine reality TV. And then TLC brought it back for a second season.
Another week and a plethora of people who are trying to ruin what's left of our summer.
We're hard-pressed to decide if the most annoying habit on reality TV right now is Frederik (Million Dollar Listing) doing high kicks when he makes a deal, or Bear Grylls (Get Out Alive) stalking people with binoculars and then telling them they need to be better about eating maggots. Either way, they both drive us crazy but neither of them are as horrible as these people.
Brian from American Baking Competition and Krissi from Masterchef were too cocky and uppity when they got criticized, which is one of our pet peeves, but they both still survived elimination and managed to escape making our list.
Breaking Amish Part 2: Breaking Amisher.
I just want to point out "And the Three Boys With Wood" started out with Max tending to a horse, and ended with Caroline grinding with an Amish boy -- causing him to instantaneously orgasm and have a panic attack and then get taken away in an ambulance -- and shortly thereafter, she got an odd text message from Andy who immediately came outside and started making out with her. Oh, and then a stray cat with really fake sound effects growled at Max. This is real show on network television.
And thus ends a chapter of Olivia Munn's history.
Does anyone else have that "On Top of Spaghetti" song in their head after Deena's solo drinking day? Until she finds a partner, we'll look at the people who were truly awful this week and not just merely sad and pathetic.
We want to include the Amish dentist who ripped Rebecca's teeth out of her head with some medieval torture device while holding her head down and no anesthetic, but since we didn't see him, he's off the hook... sorta. And well, same goes for the unseen excessive idiot who had toilet paper covered in pricey Swarovski crystals for a party on Bling It On, but know that we think she's horrible.
Just in case Modern Family wasn't already an Emmy darling...
