I say (O/T) in the title, and isn't that the truth?! Wouldn't it be HORRIBLE if there was a TTC reality tv contest show? Like... they'd kick you off if you weren't trying hard enough!!!

I digress...

Summer time is, in my opinion, the best time for TV contest shows... namely So You Think You Can Dance and Next Food Network Star.

SYTYCD is still in the "audition" phase... bleh...

But tonight, Next Food Network Star started!!!

PLEASE tell me SOMEONE on this lovely board also loves one of these shows and will follow along with me this season!!! It'll be fun... promise!

(Or is there another competition show that I'm missing out on?)

I love your enthusiasm! But alas, no I don't follow those shows (not even sure if they're on tv here?) I dont have the attention span to follow a show like that for weeks on end. Me and df have caught a couple elisodes on The Voice which is ok but purely by coincidence that we happened to be watching tv when it wad on

I too love your enthusiasm, but I don't watch a lot of Reality TV contests. I do watch Top Chef, when that comes back on I'll watch it. Seriously, I almost exlusively watch HBO and Bravo, not much else.

You make me want to watch those shows! The only "contest" show I have ever really watched is Wipeout (not sure if you can call that a contest show). What is the name of the ballroom competition dance show? I feel like I could get into that one

I don't watch either of those shows but I do have one addiction in this genre... Big Brother!! I love that show. I never take classes during the summer and it comes on three nights a week so it is perfect. My hubby even really likes it because of all the puzzles and crazy competitions. Anyone else??

Nope, don't watch here either. LOL.

A reality show, like an Amazing race thing would be cool if the prize at the end of was a round of IVF or something I'd drag DH into that, and we don't even know if we need IVF. LOL

We don't have cable, which is not fun for rainy/lazy/sick days. But that's what Netflix is for!

I, however, LOVE reality TV. Gosh what I wouldn't do for a weekend of nothing but unlimited reality-TV watching.
