Top Model Contestant Storms Off Set and Makes Physical Threats Against Judge + My Top Ten Reality TV Tantrums & Meltdowns!

A contestant on America’s Next Top Model‘s current cycle has left the competition after throwing a fit on set while standing in front of the show’s judging panel. It’s not surprising, as she flipped out earlier in the competition when she didn’t respond well to a makeover.

British-born Louise Watts, 25, ran off the set after hearing criticisms of her photos from the judges and threw a tantrum outside the building and requested to leave the show immediately. She even made a physical threat against guest-judge, publicist Kelly Cutrone, who was involved in that week’s photoshoot.

It’s definitely something you want to see for yourself, so check out the video below:

Surely, some contestants would be cheering inside, with a fellow model out of the running for the Top Model title!

Did you think that was great flip out? Check out my Top Ten Reality TV Tantrums and Meltdowns below! Some real shockers in this list. Reality television is amazing.

10. Nilka getting fired by chef Gordon Ramsay on Hell’s Kitchen (US)

It’s not a massive outburst from aspiring cook Nilka, but you really feel for her when she begs to come back into the kitchen. Of course, Ramsay says no again and again. And she’s eventually kicked off the show. You can’t make judgements about her cooking just based on this clip, but you do feel her passion, and seeing her leave was a real downer. Something nice does happen in the end though!

09. Water throwing  tantrum on The X Factor (UK) – but is it too over-the-top?

This one is almost too theatrical for me to take it seriously, but let’s give ’em the benefit of the doubt that it’s not a set-up! It’s really fun to watch the drama unfold and how judges Sharon, Louis and Simon react! I must admit it is a shame that we don’t get to see the contestant sing in this video. Please take note of the dramatic music, which definitely adds to the comical nature of it all!

08. Wanna count the number of f*cken beeps coming out of this contestant’s mouth? Again, from The X Factor (UK)

Judge Simon Cowell described auditionee Rachel as one of the rudest, deluded and untalented people ever to grace his competition. You can feel the delusion when she admits to being bigger and better than Madonna. It doesn’t get physical, but it sure does get verbal! She definitely has attitude. Talent? Less so.

07. Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa throwing a double-tantrum on The Celebrity Apprentice (US)

Joans Rivers sure is a piece of work! And she sure has a thing against poker players! After daughter Melissa is eliminated, Joan has a go at the two responsible contestants. Melissa is even more pissed off as she grabs her things and leaves the building immediately with her mother. Don’t miss this one!

06. Farmer Dave threatens to leave Big Brother (Australia) after an argument with intruder Perry

Having been accused of playing the game, Dave gets into a hissy fit and threatens to walk out of the reality show to prove that he isn’t in it for the money. There isn’t any wall punching, but you can tell he is really upset and angry. Of course, he doesn’t go through with the promise and stays in for a few more weeks until he finishes fourth.

05. Thirteen year-old Rachel Crow has a serious meltdown on The X Factor USA

OK, so this is where it starts to get crazy! After hearing that she’d been eliminated from the competition, Rachel drops to the ground and starts screaming and sobbing uncontrollably! She’s inconsolable, but it does make for fantastic television! This could only happen on reality TV! It’s a real moment caught on tape. She’s clearly distraught. And judge Nicole Scherzinger feels the impact too.

04. Tyra Banks goes apeshit on contestant – America’s Next Top Model

Sure, you get lots of crazy contestants on reality programs, but here, you see the tables turned with host and judge Tyra Banks really having a go at one of the modelling hopefuls! She’s been known for being outrageous at times, but this is really a shocking moment! You might feel sorry for the girl getting yelled at and I question if it was necessary for Tyra to speak to a contestant like that. You judge for yourself!

03. Gretel Killeen losing all professionalism while interviewing evictee Michael McCoy – Big Brother (Australia)

This interview has since been labelled ‘The Gretel Incident’. The way Killeen treats Michael in this video is absolutely horrendous. In a heated discussion about the editing of the show, she becomes extremely defensive and hostile towards her interviewee. It’s all centred on Michael’s perception that he was being portrayed as having been intimate with openly gay contestant, Dave. Michael claims that footage of him speaking with Dave seems to suggest that the pair may be kissing. And Killeen is quick to brush of these allegations in the most unprofessional way.

She’s the host of the show and her behaviour, in my opinion, was completely unacceptable! She paid no respect to the evictee, who was actually calm, polite and respectful towards her throughout the whole ordeal. I shook my head when this was going live to air, and I’m still shaking my head now watching it on YouTube:

02. Contestant Tarisai Vushe shows her true colours backstage and has a real go at judge Mark Holden – Australian Idol

This outburst is one of the few that I remember clearly in my mind, despite having only watched it on air once. And the reason is simply because of how brilliant it was to see a contestant really take a verbal swing at a judge! It all started on stage, with Tarisai receiving generally negative reviews for a performance that was suppose to show the angry and ‘true’ side of her personality.

In the weeks leading up to this, she had been accused of being fake and little support was given to her by the judges. And then on performance night, she is panned by all of them and especially Mark, who admits that he thinks she isn’t showing her true colours. You should watch how she reacts when Mark comes backstage to see how she’s doing. And she really lets it rip! The footage was shown during the results show, and you can hear the crowd cheering her on. It was definitely a great moment in Aussie reality television!

Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to save Tarisai from being eliminated that night, as she finished fifth overall in the competition. Her singing career doesn’t seem to have hit off, with a short appearance on The X Factor Australia last year, where she was quickly booted off after meeting the four judges.

01. A near punch-up in an extremely heated argument between Bianca, Renee and Alice about Bianca’s body – Big Brother(Australia)

Here’s my number one! It’s a really tense scene, with a real ugly atmosphere. Things were absolutely uneasy in the Kombi van that night with the discussion being a possible breast reduction for Bianca. The chat is mostly between Renee and Alice going up against Bianca about the issues of having large breasts. And everybody gets defensive. It’s really hard to watch at times, especially knowing how it all ends. It’s gets real ugly!

I personally am on Bianca’s side because it is her body and regardless of how the discussion has progressed during that short time, I think Bianca was right to feel ganged up on. But then again, if you watched the last season of Big Brother, you definitely know how short her temper is! She gets fired up really easily and things could have really gone pear-shaped here.

I picked this as the top tantrum/meltdown because it’s centred on a really sensitive issue and the way the tension grew was really unpredictable. And when you watch this, especially when it was on air, you don’t know what could happen. That’s what’s special about reality television. You just don’t know what’s going to happen! It’s not scripted. It’s real. And it’s about real people and real emotions. If Big Brother is coming back for good, then I hope we’ll get to see more of these shocking, unreserved moments.

I hope you all enjoyed these videos! Tell me what you think of them. Which ones really shocked you? And what are some of your Top Reality TV Tantrums and Meltdowns?

Two Reality Babes In Town At The Same Time. Can You Cope?

Good news for the male reality TV fan with news Kendra Wilkinson is in town promoting the fourth series of her show. Personally I don’t think the show about her everyday life is that engaging, the former playboy bunny does appear to be quite sweet.

A cocktail party was held in her honour Monday night in Sydney.

The other person in town is the thinking man’s babe and host of So You Think You Can Dance, Cat Deeley. She is in town to spruik a Playstation 3 game, and guys she is single. She recent broke up with boyfriend Michael McMillian. (Source: Daily Telegraph)

Now regular readers of this column might know I have an unhealthy obsession with Johnathan and Victoria from Season 6 of The Amazing Race.

Anyway they have continued living off their notoriety doing reality TV related stuff, but also they have had a daughter. How many ways are they going to screw that girl up? She is already doing commercials. She is very cute. Go to the Johnathan and Victoria website

Also MSNBC have an interview from 2005 where Johnathan and Victoria talk about their time on the race. “I never was going to hit her”. It is a great read as he tries and justifies his behaviour.
