Reality Show Dunderheads

I'm forgetting everything these days, except for reality TV's biggest a' holes. The dumb expressions, the stupidity, let's remember together, shall we...
For some odd reason The Cut with Tommy Hilfiger didn't take off as planned. It was basically an Apprentice like show where designers and artists complete tasks and one culpable for the losing team's failure gets sent home. In short order Tommy proved himself the most unlikeable boss, often dishing out crass, snippy comments in garb best described as futuristic zoot suits.

The Classic: Tommy Plane. Tommy asked his team to do artwork on those jet airliners. That's the winning team's entry. Tommy didn't like the caricature a whole heck of a lot. He said it was juvenile and it didn't look like him. One word for the likeness, spot-on.

VH1's Celebrity Fit Club doesn't get much respect. You know why? It's the Z list celebrities. I was taken by one contestant however. Joe Gannascoli appears on the Sopranos. Incidentally, Joey had to lose a ton of weight. In that health mecca affectionately called Las Vegas, Joey devised a desperate plan. He had to play the square by drinking water and had a donut nearby just in case. Joey rested a piece of donut on the plastic cup so he could trick himself by inhaling the treat while he drank that foolish H2O. "Donut water," Joey said wistfully. Indeed...



Harvey Walden's loud mouth and brusque attitude oddly enough hasn't made him popular. I'd say Walden peaked during that first season, the twitchy Daniel Baldwin era. During that time he squired a contestant, Kim Coles out on a date. Sadly there was no horse drawn carriage. Anyway, knowing Coles, the night was probably a corny, self-negating joke-a-thon. For withstanding that, let's give Col. Walden a gold star. What is up with that picture though. I'd take him more seriously if he didn't wear more lipstick than Apollonia did in Purple Rain...


Look what the pop culture vultures picked up. This is Raj Bhakta from the Apprentice 2. Jackass personified. That edition was so hard up for sub plots that this guy was deemed a ladies man. With his antiquated fashion sense, old man bow ties and jerk of the manor attire, Raj was an irritant. Recently Raj has been back in the news because he wants to run for congress. Oh goody. We don't need to look any further than his bumbling incompetence during his last task to get a taste of his management style. Pass...

Oh yeah: Raj is also famous for trying to get a date with Donald Trump's secretary Robin. They did go out but Raj blamed Robin's politics on the lack of amour. Yeah Raj, a real bridge builder...
