If you know anything about me, you know I despise "reality" shows, particularly "reality" shows with the sole purpose of self promotion.
I use quotation marks around the word "reality" because I question that concept. Those shows are not reality. They are contrived distortions of backbiting self-centered individuals, clawing their way to a spread in Playboy, or a date with-- I don't know, someone who values "reality" shows.
Anyway, VH-1 is the leader in the crap genre. When I discovered Rock of Love and Scott Baio is 45 . . . and Single I thought I hit rock bottom. But noooooooooooooo, it CAN get worse.
America's Most Smartest Model
First of all, this is GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT. What self-respecting model who claims intelligence would be on a show with a blazing grammatical error in its title??? Makes no sense to me. . .
Oh, but it gets better.
First competition was a spelling bee. This girl with giant lips had to spell "collagen".
And then she said, "but my lips aren't collagen-- they're silicone".
Anyway, I'm not doubting the intelligence of any of these characters (even silicone girl), but this parade does border on the absurd.
In the living quarters, the bathrooms are pass coded and a question appears above the keypad.
Question one on the bathroom:
What year did Christopher Columbus discover America?
First of all, one learns in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL that Christopher Columbus, in 1492, discovered perhaps Central America or the Bahamas.
So yeah, this is quite a challenge.
I guess the producers valued the carpet in the living quarters over challenging questions.
I am the Elizabeth Taylor of the feline world.
