This holiday season brought a truth home to me. I have the potential to become a reality tv show addict.
This last week VH1 ran a mega marathon of America's Next Top Model. Six seasons of skinny girls (and a few plus size gals) vying for the best shots and the chance to be proclaimed America's Next Top Model.
I initially started watching it while making my calls. It's easy to keep the volume really low and not get too wrapped up in the action. But damn did I get hooked. So hooked that I'm going to make sure and watch cycle 8 when it begins in February.
I should have suspected this really. I've been addicted to Survivor since episode two of the first season. I resisted watching the first episode because I thought the whole concept was stupid. Mike watched it and by episode two I was also sucked in.
Okay. I can hear you saying watching two reality series doesn't mean you're addicted. Ah...but there's more. VH1 has become quite the reality tv show network. They call it Celebreality. I find myself being drawn into too many of their shows. One of the most insidious is Flavor of Love. I can't even begin to explain to you why I find this show fascinating.
Flavor of Love has spun off another show that will be starting Monday...I Love New York. E will attest that I've been anticipating this debut with much glee. I'm sick, I know.
And then there's the Top Chef marathon I got sucked into. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the outcome of the final few battles. I'm rooting for Elia. Sadly once Top Chef's second season ends they're starting a new one on Bravo called Top Design. I'm ashamed to admit that I'm intrigued even though I don't have the slightest interest in interior decorating. It's insidious!
Geez, I realize I haven't even touched upon Project Runway, The Girls Next Door, The Surreal Life, or Dr. 90210. Don't worry. These I catch infrequently. I don't actually make time to watch every episode. That would be sad. Well...more sad.
So. There you have it. My shameful secret.
