Giddy for the Gauntlet

First it was America's Next Top Model and The OC. Then My So Called Life. And now Real world and The Gauntlet. I have found my TV soul mate in my good friend Erik. We both are devoted to juicy TV and we have a shared love for the drama that unfolds in the screen.

This post is dedicated and inspired by him. He did a post on his blog about the Gauntlet, so this is kind of a post to go along with that. A piggyback post, if you will. That's my new word(s) of the day. Say it with me: "Piggy Back Post." Lanie's word is "Blog Shy" which I think is great! See Erik, your inspiring people to make up new terms. Amazing what a difference a blog makes.

Anyway, if you have no interest in "The Gauntlet" you can stop reading now. You won't enjoy this post because it's about peeps you don't know and you'll just think I'm totally sucked into some lame show and I should get a life. And I don't need you judging me.

Ok, so let's dive in, shall we? Beth is so trashy and used up but now she's all pumped up because she beat Ruthie. The only she beat Ruthie is because she's bigger. And I don't mean more muscle. I mean more junk in the trunk. That girl is thick. I love how she always is so shocked when people think she's conniving and full of dra-ma. Remember when she got all her clothes thrown in the pool last season? That was hot.

Remember in the first episode Jo totally freaked out and insisted on a police escort out of the house? She called the police and screamed " "I've been seriously manhandled on the island of Tobago." That girl has major issues man!

I miss Veronica because she was the total bitch on wheels. She was such a character from "mean girls!" Totally Fetch! I also miss the Miz because he was always ready to make a fool out of himself for the camera.

Yes, Mark is old. But he's also hot, especially with his faux hawk. I think him and Robin should be together. They're both misunderstand. And drunk. And easy. Could they BE more perfect?

Did you see this weeks episode yet? Kina finds out that Cara and Susie might have an alliance with some of the Vets to throw challenges and she is piiiiiised! She tells Alton(hot boy) and the rest of the Rookies. Later in their "after challenge" meeting, Landon confronts them about the rumor of them being part of an alliance and the Susie immediately starts going into the ugly cry. Wow. It was great.

I think Derrick is a TOTAL pitbull. He was in the gauntlet with Ace this week and it was like watching extas on the set of Troy. He was getting so low that Ace had to get on his belly practically. Derrick was foaming at the mouth big time. He's aggressive, angry and drunk. He totally has short mans complex and would have no hesitation in head butting some guy just to prove he can. I like him. Everyone needs one of those guys on their team. Just incase. He's like your wild card. As you can see, when you pair him with Landon, you're pretty much covered. You pull him out when no one expects it and BAM! Headbutting ensues.

You can check out insider info from Katie at some blog she's keeping pretty updated. Did anyone ever see her on that other show where they made a movie and all the actors from different reality shows. She was insane. She got completley hammered and was such a total bitch. She was whatever the complete opposite of classy is.

Ok, I think I have gone on enough about all this. Now that I think about it, this post is pretty much to Erik since I don't know anyone else that likes this show. So Erik, hope you enjoyed it!

Gina, I loved this. Wow. We SO need to have some TV watching parties. We are like practically the same person, it's crazy.

Okay, also--I thought that whole alliance thing was really sketchy. I can't tell if those girls are telling the truth or not (it feels like they are lying and they DO have an alliance), but what confuses me is: if they DO have an alliance, what do they get out of it? If the other team wins, then the other team gets money. Those girls in the alliance on the losing team don't get money. So why would they do it? Just to be MEAN????

Or am I missing something?

Hottest RW'er ever?

Danny from New Orleans and Colin from Hawaii.

Erik? Gina?

Danny is almost TOO hot. I can't believe I am saying this but I am kinda hugely attracted to Derrick and I think he might be my #1. How crazy is that? Wait, I think Derrick was from Road Rules, though. (I only know him from the spin-off shows.) Okay, so, since I am disqualifying Danny for being TOO hot and disqualifying Derrick for being from Road Rules, I am going to say Jason from Boston. Hunky Jason! Come on, people. Give it up for Jason.

Erik-two of my favorite things rolled into one-TV watching and parties. Yes, it's on. And I don't get the alliance. I don't think the girls get it either. they're dumb.

Ok, your response to hottest RW cast member ever is Jason? Um, yea, he's ok, but I most definitly think you can do better than that. He's a bit of a drip, you know?

I like David from Seattle (i think it's the accent.) Although the fact that he sobbed like a lil bitch over his girlfriend is a bit of a turn off. Ok, he's out.

I like Steven from Vegas. He's hot and reminds me of a young Ryan Reynolds, who's totally hot. But Steven's not the hottest.

CT from Paris is hot. But he's a bit of a meathead.

Ok, well as you can see, I'm horrible at making decsions. It's a toss up between Alton from Vegas and Danny from Austin. DOn't make me flip a coin...

I don't know why I liked Jason so much. But the heart wants what the heart wants.
