Reality Rundown

We're behind on our reality round-up reports; our old favorites, "The Amazing Race" and "Survivor" are on their last legs we fear. They're just not as exciting or as much fun as they used to be. But hey, it's either those shows or watch something truly awful, like "Top Chef" or "The Housewives" series, so we'll keep dancing with the ones whut brung us. Sadly, two of the most charming and entertaining contestants in the history of "The Amazing Race", father and son team Michael and Kevin, finally got the boot. Kevin, the son, is smart, funny, charming and great looking; and Michael, the father, is a hilarious, unintentional goof-ball. These guys are already popular Youtube stars, and now they definitely need their own t.v. show.
Over on "Survivor", there's not been much to keep us glued to the tube. A couple of weeks ago, it looked like Brenda would assume the power position of The Black Widow and become the break-out star of the season, but after the one week in which she ruthlessly engineered the elimination of one-legged Kelly, she's faded into the background somewhat. Since our last report, Jill and Alina have both been voted out, but we can't even remember why; their episodes just weren't that memorable. The only two contestants which still catch our attention are NaOnka, the certifiably crazy food-stealer, and Marty, the guy who seems on the verge of elimination every week, but somehow manages to find a way to survive. Keep your eyes on these two, they're up to no good. But we said it before, and we'll say it again, we think the odds-on favorite to win the whole thing is Benry. He's smart, he knows how to play the game, he's likable, and most importantly, he's flying under the radar.
