Reality TV Show Update News - December 2004
Donald Trump's latest The Apprentice lesson: It pays to be bland -- and if you want to work for him, being passive and subservient also doesn't hurt. Rejecting feisty 30-year-old lawyer Jennifer Massey, The Donald instead selected uncharismatic 37-year-old software executive Kelly Perdew to serve as his apprentice during Thursday's season finale of the second edition of the popular NBC reality show.
Eva Pigford, a 19-year-old student from Los Angeles who had been criticized for her "diva" attitude earlier in the competition, was crowned America's Next Top Model during last night's finale of the third cycle of the popular UPN "dramality" series.
In the end, Survivor: Vanuatu's women won the gender battles but lost the war. Or at least called a truce.
When push came to shove, new Survivor: Vanuatu powerbroker Chris Daugherty decided his friendship with Julie Berry wasn't worth sacrificing the chance to enter the competition's Final 4 with Twila Tanner, the 41-year-old highway repair worker from Marshall, Missouri that he perceived to be less of a physical threat. And as a result, Julie, the 23-year-old youth mentor from Gorham, Maine, was voted out of the game during last evening's Survivor broadcast.
Survivor: Vanuatu's rebellion is complete and the queen is dead. Falling victim to the upstart regime formed by Chris Daugherty, Eliza Orlins, Twila Tanner, and Scout Cloud Lee, Ami Cusack, the 31-year-old barista from Lakewood, Colorado that had reigned over the competition's previous all-women alliance, was voted out of the game during last evening's Survivor broadcast.
