last year this time i wrote a post about how my favorite new guilty pleasure summer reality television show was 'wipeout' and 'i survived a japanese game show'.
well it's 2009 and i officially have a new train wreck that i can't take my eyes off of called 'i'm a celebrity get me out of here' airing on NBC.
there are two main reasons that i'm watching this show: heidi and spencer.
and boy do i want to punch these two in the face after last nights episode - i want to kick spencer in the face after i punch him in the face though too.
as i sat on my couch with my jaw dropped at almost everything spencer said all i could think about was what a hey day joel mchale and 'the soup' were going to have with spencer's clips from this show.
spencer had such brilliant gems as:
"i'm too famous for this"
"it's spencer vs the world"
"king of america, king of the costa rican jungle"
"i see them [other contestants] as servants. i don't fear no man. I've a black belt in jujitsus"
he got in a fight with another (female) contestant because as heidi put it, "she messed with the mamma bear (heidi), so the papa bear (spencer) is going to protect his cubs (heidi again?!?)"
and what was this fight about? someone jokingly ripping the label off of one of heidi's haircare products. oh wait, i'm sorry, "VANDALIZING" haircare products.
between all their "god blesses" and prayers it took all of my power not to throw things at the tv and boo everything that is spencer.
but unfortunately i'm doing EXACTLY what spencer wants me to do, hate him.
and i hate me for falling into the marketing trap. i can't help it, i'm part of the cattle.
all i want is during one episode for john salley to bitch slap spencer across the face.
do it for me john, do it for america.
