Buzz In: What Unusual Ways Have You Gotten Spoiled?

I was busy with TCA reporting (read: ABC's Dancing with the Stars party) last week and missed the start of the Project Runway season premiere. I decided to go to Bravo's website to see when the repeat would be airing — and right there on the front page, before the West Coast broadcast was even half over, was the name of the person who'd been eliminated that night! Maybe it was silly of me, but I figured Bravo would at least wait till the show was over in all time zones to put that up.

No matter how hard you try to avoid spoilers these days, some are bound to creep in. A couple of months ago, one of my East Coast friends updated her Facebook status to congratulate the last winner of Top Chef two hours before the show aired out here. And another friend recently told me a story about studiously avoiding all spoilers relating to a particular episode of Runway a few years back — but then walking past a Banana Republic store window that happened to display the week's winning outfit.

What are some unexpected ways you've had a TV show or a movie spoiled for you?

I'm a spoiler addict. I hate suprises so anytime I can find out an ending or watch an episode of something before its aired I will. I watch Degrassi (its a show on The-N, Im sure a bunch of u have heard of it or even watch it). It's a Canadian show that airs on a channel called CTV. Canada always plays the episodes before the US so I always download the episodes waaayyy before The-N airs them. I wish every show was available like that for me...lol.

I would be grateful if yumsugar didn't post the Hell's Kitchen and Top Chef spoilers LOL. They don't show in my area until a couple of days later, and my husband hits the roof when I log on and....there it is, the ending of a show we haven't watched yet. I still watch the shows though.

buzzsugar was asking for unusual ways of spoling, not the elementary ones.

Legally Blonde: The Search for Elle Woods. My DVR somehow failed to record the finale, so I went to MTV's page to see the next time they were showing it. And right there on the front page was the winner.

The Sixth Sense...someone told me the ending before I saw it. Needless to say, I didn't really care to watch the movie after that.

I always say to people, who dont want to be spoiled about TV shows they either missed watching, or TIVO'd that once it has aired, its fair game for anyone to talk about it, Websites or in Blogs or Comments. Its not up to the rest of the world to save its opinions and recaps just because you havent watched it yet. So stay away from blogs, or websites that recap those shows. I have never had anything spoiled for me. And I watch LOST, BSG, All the Bravo shows, Heroes etc...

I would say that the previews have gotten much worse at giving away information. I mean get that it's supposed to make you wanna see the movie, but on a couple occasions, its made me not want to see it because they show so much I get the jist of the movie. I also hate this play by play that they do with movie making now... I mean, I know everything about a movie before it's even finished. I hate that.

Wikipedia... I only wanted to see if someone else was considered for a movie role before the person who actually had it and although I was able to scroll past the plot "summary" as fast as I could, someone had major details to the movie in the section I was going for.

I record many shows on my DVR (awesome device,lol) and I do not catch up with the recorded show until the weekend or day after it aired. So I made the dumb mistake of going onto People .com before watching the Hell's Kitchen finale and ended up seeing the winner posted on the site (same thing happend when I was watching Biggest Loser last season.) Also the people that post on IMDB tend to put spoilers right in the headline of the post. So I now have to make sure not to check the boards until after I've seen the movie. Which doesn't help when you are waiting to rent a film. Annoying people like to ruin watching a movie. :irk:

Just last week I was reading through the comments on your SYTYCD Wednesday rundown (I love your thoughts, btw. It's a little eerie because it's like we share a brain). Anyway, I was reading everyone else's thoughts on Thursday before the results show aired here on the west coast and someone posted a comment about Kherington and Gev being kicked off. I was so bummed!! (For multiple reasons, clearly)

my friend was wearing a threadless shirt called "spoilt". the time he first wore it, i happened to be reading through the harry potter series. needless to say, he "spoilt" a major plot twist for me. i haven't let it go yet. he isn't allowed to wear the shirt anymore.

Or tv commercials. The CW spoiled the entire plot for every Reaper episode in advance through their commercials. Blah!
