Despite turning down a proposal from George “Tailor Made” Weisgerber on the recent finale of her show, People is reporting that Tiffany “New York” Pollard recently had a change of heart. After selecting George at the end of I Love New York 2’s second season, Pollard, 25, told her suitor she wanted to wait before agreeing to any nuptials. Although he agreed to wait the requested 24-months, the
lovesick Weisgerber, 32, decided to try again anyway. Fortunately, it turns out the 2nd-time was a charm. (Let’s just hope the same can be said of this engagement; New York’s season one betrothal only lasted a few months.) Fans of the series can witness the awkward/romantic moment for themselves when I Love New York 2’s reunion special airs on January 6.
Meanwhile, another star familiar to the viewers of the cable channel has news of her own to celebrate. Fergie, 2007’s It Girl, just became engaged to actor Josh Duhamel. The Black Eyed Peas singer, 32, and star of Las Vegas, 35, have been together for three years. The couple started dating shortly after she made an appearance on his NBC show.

So evidently I’m really bad at predicting the outcomes of reality shows (which, I know, already happened). I mean, really exceptionally bad. Now, I could have just buried my predictions from two weeks ago, but a man has to face his failures, so here we go. (Oh, and blahblahblahSPOILERALERTblahblahblah.)
THE AMAZING RACE:
Just a few weeks in, and one of my finalists is already gone. Not only was I wrong about Lorena & Jason being one of the three final teams, I was also wrong about them not annoying me yet. Lorena’s camel-milking meltdown (and how often did you read that phrase?) was incredibly entertaining and also horribly, cripplingly annoying. Still, Azaria & Hendekea are running strong and maybe I’ll be right about who ultimately gets to hang out with Phil at the finish line. But most likely not.
AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL:
My pick, Heather, was in the Bottom Two last week. She’s still in it, but her not-great public speaking skills mean she may not be long for this competition.
Every week I watch ESPN and listen to all of the football predictions, but I only really watch a couple of the (sometimes up to) sixteen games. Sometimes I only watch one (go Steelers!). What I do watch though is a whole bunch of reality competition shows, and I never ever see programs predict winners on those. Maybe that’s because most of these shows have been pre-taped and their outcomes have already determined. But I’m going to ignore all that. So, even though I don’t have a television show (yet) (or ever, really), I’ll use this forum to make my predictions on all of the reality shows I watch (and a few I don’t). Here they are in glorious alphabetical order:
THE AMAZING RACE:
Two episodes in, it’s still hard to tell. You never know who’s going to get a delayed flight or rack up some bad taxi karma, but let me do my best here. Azaria & Hendekea appear to be doing well, so I’ll put them in the final three. Lorena & Jason did well in the second leg, and, most importantly, they have yet to annoy me, so they get to be there too. For the final spot…I say Kynt & Vyxsin. Yes, I know that before the show I hated them, and I still can’t stand the concept of Goth on principle alone, but they seem to be good competitors and more likeable than I would have guessed.
And the winner is…Azaria & Hendekea. They’re smart, in shape, and being brother and sister they can fight with each other without having everything come to a grinding halt. Congratulations, you two, in advance. Or retrospect. Or whatever.
As I type this, I’m listening to the new Radiohead album, In Rainbows, and I’m in a terrifically good mood. See, I love Radiohead like Tyra Banks loves … well, Tyra Banks, and so you would think that this good mood would make me put together a list of wonderful things about the new fall TV season.
Yeah, not so much. To be honest, I haven’t watched a lot of the new fall network TV shows. But it’s worthwhile to take a look at these shows and for me to say what I watched, what I thought, and why I didn’t watch a lot of them. Well, it’s worthwhile for me anyway. Plus it goes well with Radiohead (not really, but it’s not like I’m gonna stop listening). Here goes:
- The View (ABC, syndicated): Meredith Viera returns to her old-stomping grounds as a guest. I’m sure she prefers it that way.
- Total Request Live (MTV, 3:30pm): Watch the ‘official’ debut of Britney’s new video, or just watch it now.
- Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8:30pm): The reunion of Johnny Galecki and Sara Gilbert happens tonight.
- I Love New York 2 (VH1, 9pm): Season premiere. I’m sorry—what exactly do the winners ‘win’ on this show again?
