Reality Bites (posted by jill brady)

Real Housewives of Orange County/NY
The Orange County ladies have their finale tonight - let's hope they dump Lynn next season. Will we see Jeff pass away this week or are they saving that for next season? A newly single Gretchen might be interesting to watch too - that would drive Vicki nuts! The NY group is back tonight with a new addition - Jill is really the only one with any zip to her - the rest were so bland last year. http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-york-city/bio/kelly-killoren-bensimon
The Bachelor
The 3 overnight dates this season were in New Zealand which looked amazing - obviously ABC is not feeling the recession. Jason's enthusiasm for Melissa is so obvious - all the girls run to him and he runs to her. I think they are editting it to look like he cares more about not meeting her parents than he really does. Feel so bad for Molly's dad - they keep showing the clip of him in the beer mug hat! The fact that this week's decision was between Jillian or Molly was obvious - I think he likes them both but not like Melissa. Molly will be the long shot to walk away with a ring. But regardless - they all got an amazing trip to NZ, right?! http://tvwatch.people.com/2009/02/17/bachelor-jason-blogs-about-the-toughest-cut-yet/
Sober House
Why would Amber go to that party? Totally an insane way to test her 30 day sobriety! The guy she went to see blew her off until she was wasted and then charmed her with a cheesy line. And they just skimmed over the fact that she blacked out for like 6 hours! Isn't the house mom supposed to ground her now or something?
Millionaire Matchmaker
Patti claims to have 90% success rate - do they just show the failures on this show? Last season, I can't remember any couples staying together for more than 2-3 dates. This week - they barely made it through the cocktail party. It would have been fun to see both guys pick the same girl - and then have the girl not be interested in either. Wonder what Katie did with the weird picture of the little boy that David gave her. The "big twist" this season is that she is going to have a female millionaire - not a very dramatic twist. Maybe I'm just not a fan because she dissed red heads last season saying "red heads aren't the freshest produce in the aisle." I beg to differ!
Survivor: Tocantins
Started out harsh at the get go - with Sandy and Sierra thinking they were voted off before the game even started. Nice twist to send them back to camp - at least Sierra made progress building a shelter to get some brownie points, Sandy wasted the time and didn't even find the idol. Love that Carolina was voted off and they saw Sandy added value in the challenge - usually the first couple of votes aren't so strategic.

Is anyone watching the Real World Brooklyn this season? I'm behind about 4 episodes - let me know if it is worth catching up on!
