Sunday Reality Tidbits – Masterchef Australia, Dancing With The Stars,

Masterchef Australia contestant Dominic Corrigan appears to have fallen off the wagon at a recent function at Star City Casino. The now eliminated Dominic has said he was in rehab for alcohol issues previously but said he did not abstain but had it under control. At the time I thought that sounded  a bit like Dicko who stopped then started again, and has now stopped. (Source: Sunday Telegraph).

Dancing With The Stars commences tonight with Pamela Anderson as a guest. Awesome. Apparently Jo-Beth Taylor is on with her partner, Rachael Finch has denied she is on with hers. Jason Stevens dance partner is injured so he has a new one. I suspect he will be the first to be eliminated, unless he gets the sympathy vote.

Tamara Jaber who will also be on Dancing With The Stars has again denied that her and Kyle Sandilands marriage is on the rocks. Both camps have said they both are busy with their careers therefore have difficulty spending time together at the moment. However their house will be featured on Better Homes and Gardens this Friday. I have to confess I will be tuning in.

Rumours are the Masterchef Australia might be filmed in Melbourne next year. TV Tonight thinks that this would not be a wise move.

Hells Kitchen on GO has been moved to Tuesday at 10.30pm. This will be up against a new series of The UK Apprentice on channel 7 at this time (thanks Wurstsemmel).

Shortly after Dominic was eliminated he used to come here and rant about how we didn’t know what we were talking about, we were being too hard on MC contestants, etc. Well if story in today’s paper is accurate, his rage here was not out of character. Perhaps he would have several late night tipples and come here and rant?! The story also confirms what I thought: the guy was very new to cooking and didn’t have much depth or range, outside BBQ’ing …not that there is anything wrong with that as Seinfeld would say.

No I had not seen this. Interesting. Also noticed in this week’s Woman’s Day a big article on Joanne and the negative comments about her.

There have been a lot of stories about the apparent online hate campaign against Joanne. Although I do not necessarily agree with the treatment Joanne has received, I have allowed a online hate monger a right of reply here </.

YEAH! for UK Apprentice. Hope it is UK season 3 or 4 as I saw season 1 and half of season 2. Season 2 is a ripper tho and I wouldn’t mind seeing it again. Wish ch9 would give Aus Apprentice another go. Must be one of the cheaper reality shows to make. Mark Bouris was just getting comfortable in the role at the end of the first season.

Well I watched the entirety of Dancing with the stars – what a marathon. They really need to speed things up a bit I think, it just goes for far too long, and I had to read the paper in between the bits where they actually dance.

Anyway – I wonder what Pammy made of our contestants – almost all footballers (and wives) or young tv glamour women. I like the older contestants – Dicko, Derryn Hinch, Pauline Hanson etc – perhaps they couldnt get anyone over 25 to sign up this time.

I forgot how annoying Todd McKenny and Sonia Kruger are. Sonia has no shame at all. More front than WWI. she would ask anyone anything. And Todd – sometimes controversial and funny, but often just pointlessly rude. Telling JoBeth Taylor that she was trying to look like a sexy Mummy and it wasn’t working for her was just rude and uncalled for – and not really constructive advice.

and did Tamara J really kiss her partner on the neck during the interview bit after their dance!!

What happened Todd Kenny? Did the Tango guy turn you down, you could barely contain your anger when you bagged him out. Why have frustrated angry gay guys, why not a nice gay like Graham Norton. Todd Kenny is always bitchy, this year, last year, whenever!!
