Right now, all of America is wondering, "What's next for Sanjaya Malakar and Patti Blagojevich from I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here?" Well, not really, but there must be a couple of you, right? No? Just one? Okay, dude, here you go -- the Patjaya conference call, complete with info about Sanjolly's relationship, Patti's acting career and when Seattle should expect their prodigal son to return home.
I am seriously thankful that there is only one more week of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here left, because these are the most boring human beings on the face of the planet and I just can't take it anymore. Everything is just so freaking dull that it makes me want to cry. There is nothing more tedious than watching people complain about how there's nothing to do around camp. Watching John Salley wake people up is not compelling television. Seeing endless conversations about how they all like each other and are a family is not good, either. Being forced to believe that Sanjaya and Holly have a budding romance is ridiculous, though that's less ridiculous than everyone speculating on why John and Patti are fast friends. And seeing the celebs find little things to nitpick about is irritating. Even Big Brother usually eliminates a lot of the boring conversations about pet peeves, and the people on that show have the good sense to hate each other, or stir up fights, in order to keep people at home from falling asleep. I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that the challenges, which are actually cool, are too few and far-between.
For years we've been conditioned to lower our TV expectations during the warmer months, seeking out shows that we would never allow to clutter our overstuffed DVRs at any other time of year. But even though it's only early June, there's already an unusually high amount of truly addictive television - shows that we should be ashamed to watch, but aren't. Here's our top ten favorite guilty viewing pleasures of the summer so far.
Until recently, the mere mention of Sanjaya gave me bad flashbacks of him brutalizing "You Really Got Me" and his ridiculous hairdon'ts. I was dreading seeing him on I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here and only mildly looking forward to torturing him by voting him into gross challenges in order to get payback for the way he abused my eardrums all those times on American Idol. So when he walked off the plane on 'I'm a Celebrity' with his hair in the stupid mohawk I sighed and braced myself for the worst. However... that hasn't been the case at all. In fact, he's the most awesome person on that show. Somehow, he morphed from annoying teen to king of the jungle in just a few short years. Here are the reasons I'm loving him now.
