Reality TV Features & Interviews - November 2008
Analeigh Tipton may have been viewed as one of the more cutesy and positive-minded girls while she was a contestant on America's Next Top Model, however she was rather blunt when it came to assessing her feelings following her elimination.
After finishing as America's Next Top Model's runner-up, it would be easy to have sour grapes and focus on thinking about what could have been. But not if you're Samantha Potter apparently.
If Randy Bailey, a 49-year-old videographer from Eagle Rock, MO, did nothing else, he made his exit from Survivor: Gabon a memorable one. After making it through 30 days in Gabon, Bailey had seemed to find a way to adapt his prickly personality to the game and find success.
Newly-revealed America's Next Top Model winner Brittany "McKey" Sullivan says she felt confident as entered the season's final judging panel. However, the reason for her confidence was a bit unconventional, to say the least.
While many may have been surprised by the elimination of Coleen Skeabeck, a 23-year-old receptionist from Cleveland, OH, from last night's episode of NBC's The Biggest Loser: Families, don't count her as one of them.
Although newly ousted Dancing with the Stars contestant Cody Linley admits he developed a strong friendship with professional partner Julianne Hough while they competed on the show, he insists he's not "in love" with her.
"Newly Dating Couple" Terence Gerchberg and Sarah Leshner were most likely the most athletic couple, -- and perhaps the most argumentative one as well -- during their time on The Amazing Race 13 and had always seemed to find a way to bounce back from their race mistakes.
Charlie Herschel, a 29-year-old lawyer from New York, NY, had no idea he was going home. After making it through the first eight episodes of Survivor: Gabon with only brief moments of drama as a member of the season's previously dominant "onion alliance," Charlie thought he was in pretty good shape heading into the competition's stretch run.
Marjorie Conrad, a 19-year-old student from San Francisco, CA, seemingly could not go to one judges' panel without hearing about her nerves and jittery personality. However, following her elimination from America's Next Top Model on Wednesday, Conrad doesn't think that her persona is as one sided as the show portrayed.
Two-time Olympic gold medalist track star Maurice Greene may have become a proficient dancer during his tenure on Dancing with the Stars, but don't expect him to explain how the show's judges had decided whether or not he was off his game at any given time.

All My Children star Susan Lucci says she is anything but disappointed by her elimination from Dancing with the Stars'.
Sheena Satana, a 21-year-old hostess/go-go dancer from Honolulu, HI who currently resides in Harlem, NY, was always aware of the tensions filling the America's Next Top Model house -- mostly because she appeared to always be embroiled in some type of conflict.
