Reality TV Frankenstein
E!’s forthcoming show Kill Reality has such a brilliant premise — veteran reality-show stars live together while making their own horror movie — that we’re stunned no one thought of it before. An unholy hybrid of Project Greenlight and The Surreal Life? Fabulous! To make up for not having had the idea ourselves, let’s try to come up with some other reality show combos to pitch the networks. For example, we could combine Fear Factor and America’s Next Top Model, where the aspiring mannequins would be challenged to eat… anything. Or, The Amazing Bachelor Race, where teams of women race around the world to avoid the Bachelor and an inevitable public breakup. Hurry and post your idea for a cross-pollinated reality show before Fox’s Mike Darnell takes the credit.
