Sunday Newspaper Reality TV Wrap Up.

The Block’s host Shelly Craft is almost due to have her second baby. She says she won’t be taking much time off. I really like this photo of her.  Her views on why The Block is so popular is:

“There’s something for everyone,” she said. “If you’re a renovator you get a lot of the drama and action of that, we have a great kids audience and if you love reality there’s a lot of that going on.”

Sass and Bide are one of the few fashion designers who don’t want to get their designs on The Voice. They say “they only dress international celebrities”. However the stylist of the show, Gabe Robinson, says he’s been swamped with offers from a lot of designers. (Source: Sunday Telegraph)

Grant Bowler from The Amazing Race Australia will play Richard Burton opposite Lindsay Lohan. Dlisted gives his amusing view on this pairing.

Reality TV alumni of Christina Anu, Anh Do, and Vince Sorrenti are all touring at the moment, not together but separately.

Network Ten has scored the format of The Audience where the concept is 50 people 50 ordinary people from all backgrounds following one person who is at a crossroads and has a life-changing decision to make. Not sure how it works at all, though a quick Google search these 50 people offer counsel. Not sure I would cope with that… Anyway apparently very popular and the concept has been sold worldwide.

Really looking forward to the start of Amazing Race this week – really impressed with the Aus series last season …. even more so than the US one! Except for Phil’s eyebrow of course!
The preview ads have looked very good – there certainly seems to be a great cast line-up
Will be interesting to see how they portray the fianle ……….

Assistant stylist to the C-list Gabe Robinson seems to dress people with his eyes closed so someone must have read aloud that quite sensible email from Sass & Bide.

And Ricki Lee > Lara Bingle….get on that Eyeworks.

Pretty sure I saw the Fevolas on the front of a weekly trash mag recently telling us “Why I took him back” etc.

That Lindsay Lohan thing looks so ridiculously terrible, right down to the casting of “Border Security’ Bowler.

Wot’s dun ‘appened to Ricki-Lee is a national bloody tragedy, in my opinion. FFS, she now looks like a cross between Delta Goodrem and Tania Zaetta and is neither sexy nor interesting. She used to look like an individual and this made her both interesting and hot. Now she looks like a bleached, lip-syncing, plastic mannequin.

“Grant Bowler from The Amazing Race Australia will play Richard Burton opposite Lindsay Lohan. Dlisted gives his amusing view on this pairing.”

Wasn’t her next movie meant to be as Linda Lovelace in Deep Throat Redux? Has someone told Grant?
