This was not a good week for me and reality TV. First, the fabulous Natalie Reid got sent home early in the Vegas rounds of So You Think You Can Dance without so much as a chance to dance for her life. Hoping to cleanse my palate from that surprise elimination, I flipped over to Make Me a Supermodel, only to see Branden — admittedly hot, but my least favorite of the remaining three — go home with the modeling contract and the $100,000.
While I know it's silly to get upset over TV shows, I still experience what I like to call "reality rage." Typically, this affliction crops up when a contestant who bugs me wins, or when a favorite gets eliminated too soon (for example, I know people who still complain about Alison Kelly getting kicked off Project Runway a couple of years back). But it can also happen when something happens that makes me question why I devoted all those hours to watching the show in the first place, like Jason dumping Melissa for Molly on The Bachelor — or his Bachelor predecessor, Brad, choosing nobody.
I can't be alone in this, so I'm wondering: What reality TV victories, eliminations, or other decisions have made you mad?
