Reality Doesn't Suck
I should clarify that I don't watch the how to cooking shows I like the reality ones. Top Chef, Chefs vs City, Chopped and on BBC America there is The F Word and Kitchen Nightmares. My favorite of all is Hell's Kitchen with Gordon Ramsay. I know he is raunchy and foul most of the time, but I still love his shows.
It always amazes me when contestants or restaurant owners get upset with him, have they not seen his shows? It is his "shtick".
Also going for him is... I think he is fit. A bit rough looking perhaps but there is something about the whole package that intrigues me... interests me. Look at those blue eyes in the picture and the cheeky grin.
There are also some other foodie shows that are really strange like Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel, that man will eat anything and I mean anything. I had to cover my eyes as he ate a roast pig from head to tail.. and by tail I mean tail, brains to a**hole. Also on the travel channel is Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations he too will eat what ever is put in front of him. I would love to travel with them sometime I would probably lose some weight. Also on Food Network is Unwrapped about how foods etc are made and Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. As I scroll through the show lists there are a lot I have seen at least a few times.
I am pretty much a reality show junkie, not so much the MTV ones, they are really bad but I will admit to having watched Rock of Love more than a few times. I like The Real Housewives shows, in particular the New York and New Jersey wives. I have blogged about them before. Hooked on The Real Housewives and The Real Housewives....
Project Runway is a good one too.. not that I have a lick of fashion sense but I love Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum has to be the most beautiful woman alive. The designers are all characters in their own right.
And how could I forget the cake shows, The Cake Boss is great, there is another one I can't remember the name of.. and of course the cake challenge shows, where three teams complete by cooking/building a theme cake. These cakes are usually 5 feet tall and amazing.
What reality shows do you watch, if any? I am sure I have forgotten some, embarassingly so, but hey my reality isn't always so exciting so I get it from these shows.
I would also like to thank everyone for their lovely comments on my 9/11 poem. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the tragic day as well. It always amazes me when people like my poetry and I truely appreciate it.
