Reality TV Features & Interviews - May 2007
For new host Jerry Springer, America's Got Talent represents a return to television's past.
Last summer 17-year-old Jordin Sparks said she was focused on getting her drivers' license, which happened just before she ventured from her native Glendale, AZ to Seattle, WA to audition for American Idol's sixth season.
Thinking of CBS' new Mark Burnett-created Pirate Master reality competition series as just "Survivor on a boat" is incorrect according to Cameron Daddo, the new show's host.
For its second season, creator Simon Cowell has reinvented his ABC American Inventor reality series.
So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley said the Fox reality competition series' upcoming third season isn't much different from last summer's second installment, but was quick to add that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Every contestant in American Idol's history -- be it an untalented hopeful or eventual winner -- has felt the sharp-tongue of Simon Cowell. But recently ousted American Idol sixth season finalist Lakisha Jones is the only one who also knows what his lips feel like.
Love them or hate them, cousins Mirna Hindoyan and Charla Baklayan Faddoul at least deserve a tip of the cap for being the third team to cross the finish line during CBS' finale of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.
Dustin Seltzer and Kandice Pelletier were looking to become the first all-female team to ever win The Amazing Race when they signed-up for All-Stars on the heels of their fourth-place finish during The Amazing Race's tenth season.
Eric Sanchez and Danielle Turner finished in first for only one leg of CBS' The Amazing Race: All-Stars. Luckily for them it was the thirteenth and final leg, as they were the first team to cross the finish line of The Amazing Race's eleventh installment during last night's finale to claim the $1 million prize.
This time the judging panel is dead wrong in eliminating Brittany because five Australian designers did not like her personality. Personality is something that can be changed. Having a natural ability to consistently take great photos is something that money or a workshop cannot buy. Maybe the panel felt that she would not make any money for the show or anywhere in the world if she won the competition.
