Guilty Pleasure

Project Runway. It's great fun to watch for the fashion train wrecks. Plus isn't that Daniel Vosovic just the cutest? Although--it's patently obvious that they kept Santino on just so they would have some snarkiness on the show. I love the proviso they show subliminally in the end credits--something to the effect that the producers have the final say in who stays and who goes. Well duh. I think we've all been around that block now that reality TV is a decade old.

HIRE REAL ACTORS! PRODUCE REAL ART! ART IS REALITY MAGNIFIED!

Well, yeah...but I still like Survivor.

Have you seen "Survival Man"? It's on Discovery Channel. There's this guy with real survival skills and they dump him in the wilderness with the clothes on his back, the contents of his pockets, and a camera. He's been in the Yukon, the Georgia Swamps, etc. He can catch a turtle with sticks, and start a fire with sock lint. To me he's way cooler than the bikini-clad whiners.

Survivor has always been a misnomer. It should be called "Camping". I will admit, however, that I watched the last 2 episodes of the first season to see if Rudy would win. I liked that old crusty SEAL.

Explain to me this "catch a turtle with sticks" reference. I always thought turtles were kind of easy to catch.
Two reasons why I like to watch Survivor:
1) I worked for REI for years, am an experienced outdoorsman, and like to make fun of the bikini-clad whiners.
2) The bikini-clad whiners.
