I was randomly flipping through the channels the other day & I stumbled across a fight. At first I thought it was an episode of Jersey Shore I had inadvertantly missed #dontjudgeme, but after watching for a few minutes, I realized it was something called “Cut Throat”. And then I saw Johnny Bananas…and I realized it was yet another RW/RR challenge.
I remember when these challenges first started. Hell, I remember when Real World and Road Rules started (yay for being a kid w/cable & too much alone time at home before mom got home, LOL). Anyway…I remember when these challenges were actually fun to watch. Where there was intrigue & it felt new & fun. We had real villians – Coral (she acted like Billy Badass, didn’t she?), Katie, CT, Beth, Veronica, Tonya….now that was some good tv.
Now? Now its just overdone & boring. I only recognized a couple of contestants, the rest are from seasons of RW that I haven’t watched. I think the last season of RW I watched was…hmmm…Denver? Naw I didn’t even watch all of that. What was before Denver? Anyway, these challenges are so horribly predictable now. They get drunk, hook up, fight, curse each other out, hook up some more, and win some money. BORING. Its already been done. And done by better reality stars – these new kids are boring.
But then again, RW is boring now as well. I stopped watching at least 5 seasons ago, maybe more. All they do is drink & fight. Remember when RW was actually interesting? Where the housemates had lives outside of house & show? Like Boston or Miami (those were my fave casts, what happened to those ppl?). Seems like MTV should have pulled the plug on RW and the challenges a long time ago.
Anybody watching RW/RR challenge? What keeps you watching? Or are you done with it all? Let me know!
