I thought this was an interesting article FOXNews.com - Reality TV's Delusions and Dreams - One of the most pleasant aspects of reality TV is witnessing delusional people in action and "Top Model" certainly takes the prize in this regard. I mean, youve got to love a show that continues to call itself "Americas Next Top Model" when, seven seasons in, they have yet to produce a top model in America, or anywhere else. Take the experts featured on the show. I mean, does anyone actually buy the fact that J. Alexander, Jay Manuel or even sweet little Twiggy have an iota of impact on todays modeling world? Noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker, Im surely not the first to point out, seems to only be noted by the producers of ANTM. This episode featured delusions like Tyra believing shes a photographer and an allegedly sexy shoot with Fabio. Yes, 47-year-old Fabio posed with girls as young as 18 for the fake cover of a romance novel. my opinion, simply asking us to believe that somewhere in the world, Fabio is considered sexy is nearly unfathomable; asking us to buy that while hes posing lecherously with adolescents is as delusional as pretending that Tyra is the next Oprah or Annie Leibowitz, for that matter. Over on Dancing with the Stars, meanwhile, the delusions were just as easy to count: one, Joey Lawrences feeling that a sleeveless button-down gold shirt might be a strong sartorial move; two, the audiences collective roar of laughter whenever Jerry Springer said things that were almost, but not quite, funny; three, Jerrys parting comment that the dancers remaining on the show were going to be the superstars of the future. Dont get me wrong I think theyre all shockingly agile and quite adorable in their dedication to the show. But phrases like starring Angelina Jolie and Joey Lawrence or featuring Brad Pitt and Monique Coleman simply dont roll off the tongue. Survivor, meanwhile, gave us a bunch of cobbled-together footage of the tribes up until now some scenes were new, some all too familiar. Which meant, of course, that it essentially could have been called a delusional highlights reel. We got to revisit Billy, the heavy metal musician, mistaking Candices reassurance that the tribe still loved him for a mutual declaration of love at first sight; JP consoling Stephannie about being voted off minutes before his own ousting and a series of extradited people claiming they were totally cool with having been humiliated and rejected by a group of their peers on national television. And how could it be any other way? Brains that say, Hey, a good way to make a million dollars might be to go on Survivor" or This will definitely launch my acting career dont tend to belong to people known for their tremendous self-awareness. Thank God or we might have to find another source for entertainment.
