PopWatchers, this is exciting! The results are in for the Quarterfinals of our Guilty Pleasures Reality TV Showdown – in the first two categories of Relationships and “Real” Lives. We’ve already had some major upsets to stir things up. Somewhere Lauren Conrad’s heart will break to hear that Dog the Bounty Hunter was more popular than The Hills. Newcomers The Real Housewives of New Jersey beat out their popular Atlanta counterparts – NeNe and Kim, take that! Also, Temptation Island looms large in the pop culture consciousness six years after its run, beating Tila Tequila.
This is going to get hard. How can you choose between Cheaters and Rock of Love!? It’s like Sophie’s Choice! But we turn that voting power over to you, PopWatchers, as we move toward the crown. See the updated bracket here.
We start things off today with voting for:
Relationships: Cheaters vs. Rock of Love (kicking off at 1 pm)
Come back Monday for the “Real” Lives Semifinals:
The Real Housewives of New Jersey vs. Say Yes to the Dress
My Super Sweet 16 vs. Dog the Bounty Hunter
And Tuesday we’ll reveal the Seminfinalists from the remaining two categories, Celeb-Reality and Competition. We’re waiting for the next upsets…
More Showdown, these polls still open through 1 p.m. ET Monday, Dec. 14:
