Les Moonves On 'Big Brother' Racism: 'I Find It Absolutely Appalling'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The rampant racism, homophobia, and anti-Semitism on "Big Brother's" current Season 15 has created a firestorm of controversy. Houseguests Aaryn and GinaMarie have already been fired from their day jobs for their offensive comments and behavior, but they remain on the show, intolerant antics and all. At the Television Critics Association Summer 2013 press tour, CBS CEO Les Moonves addressed the "Big Brother" issue, calling some of what he's seen "appalling." "It was established as a social experiment. Clearly, this happened this year. I find some of the behavior absolutely appalling, personally," Moonves told the press. "What you see there unfortunately is a reflection how certain people feel in America. I think we've handled it properly. Obviously, it made a lot of people uncomfortable ... We did not comment on some racial things that were being said until it affected what was going on in the household, and I think we've handled it the way we should have." Moonves ad ...

“Naked and Afraid” not nearly as sexy as it promises - almost 4 years
“Naked and Afraid,” the new reality show that premieres Sunday night on Discovery, would more honestly be titled “Cynical and Earnest.” The show takes two trained survivalists, a man and a woman, drops them into an extreme, unpopulated environment without food, water or shelter, and leaves them there for 21 days. The twist — or rather the reveal, pun intended — is that the participants are also naked. “Naked and Afraid” is not, however, some Playboy bunny version of “Castaway.” It’s more like an extreme version of the parts of “Survivor” in which Richard Hatch took off all his clothes. On-screen nudity has rarely been less sexual, but it’s also rarely been used as brazenly to sell a show. Anyone coming to “Naked and Afraid" for titillation — or camp or absurdity or over-the-topness, all things suggested by the title and premise — will find, instead, a focus on the difficulty and spirituality of the experience. "Naked and Afraid" decidedly does not belong in the Hugely Exploitative Rea ...

Why Are We Obsessed With Reality Show Villains?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
PHOENIX -- Arizona restaurateur Amy Bouzaglo became an instant Internet celebrity last month after demonstrating an impressively short temper on a reality TV show that helps reform struggling businesses. The episode of "Kitchen Nightmares" drew more than a million viewers on YouTube, and Bouzaglo's vitriolic rants became popular fodder on Twitter and Facebook. So it should surprise no one that her next step was to announce she was shopping around her own reality TV show. These days, head butting, table flipping, belly slapping, hair pulling, smack talking and other behavior generally considered impolite have become a tested strategy for reality TV fame, as seen in the proliferation of such shows as "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," `'Basketball Wives" and the "Real Housewives" franchise. Some reality "stars" have become brands of their own after churning out self-help books, hair products, cocktail lines and flavored water. And the next generation of more shockin ...

Jonah Platt: The Greatest Show in the History of Television
Huffington Post - about 4 years
What if I told you there was a show on TV that gave you an up-close and personal view into the real essence of the human soul? A show that strips away the trappings of everyday life, the walls and weapons and words we hide behind, and exposes our true strengths, weaknesses and core identities on a primitively human level. Sounds pretty cool, right? What if I told you this show holds a magnifying glass up to all of our most admirable qualities -- bravery, intelligence, compassion, perseverance -- as well as our most pitiable -- fear, greed, ignorance, stupidity? That this is a show where race, age, gender, sexual orientation, wealth, and religion play no part in determining individual success on any level? Where strength refers to your inner spirit and mental toughness, as well as your physical body. Where those with patience, loyalty, forthrightness, insightfulness, and courage are rewarded, and those possessed by selfishness, deceit, arrogance, and intolerance are doom ...

    In 2000, Hatch had a cameo as a patient in the Becker episode "One Wong Move" where Ted Danson's character received him as a patient, discussing the bizarre eating habits of the people on Survivor, and mentioning that he didn't mind if he had to take his clothes off.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2000, Hatch competed in Survivor: Borneo, the first edition of the show in the United States.
    More Details Hide Details He initially competed with the Tagi tribe, and quickly aligned himself with former Navy SEAL Rudy Boesch. He often demonstrated a preference for playing the game completely naked. Hatch and Boesch formed a voting alliance with the two female members of the tribe, Sue Hawk and Kelly Wiglesworth. When each tribe was down to five members, they merged into one tribe, Rattana. Further into the game, due to a rift in the relationship between Hawk and Wiglesworth, Wiglesworth became the new target of the now three-way alliance among Hawk, Boesch and Hatch. Wiglesworth had opted out of the alliance, a move Hawk considered cowardly and simply a way to show off to the jury, thinking this assured her of winning. When Wiglesworth won immunity twice, Colleen Haskell and Sean Kenniff were voted off. Down to four contestants, Wiglesworth won immunity yet again, ensuring that one of the alliance would be voted out. In a two–two tie, Hatch and Hawk were both in danger of elimination. On a revote, Wiglesworth opted to eliminate Hawk. At the final immunity challenge, Hatch eliminated himself early, trusting both Wiglesworth and Boesch to take him to the end regardless, and not wanting the option to go back on his word to Boesch if he himself won the challenge. When Wiglesworth won immunity, she voted out Boesch, making him the final member of the jury.
