Reality Tidbits – Friday

All the stories I missed this week:

A TV shows about Virgins on MTV – it sounds a little seedy, but apparently it is not as dreadful as it sounds. The show Virgin Territory (see above preview) follows 15 virgins as they decide whether to start their sexual journey. Probably won’t be on my must watch list but will definitely check out an episode. (Source: SMH)

Because of this show it inspired a columnist to draw up the list of the tackiest reality shows of all time. Chains of Love an Australian show made the list! (Source: Telegraph)

A blast from the reality TV past – My Restaurant Rules finalist Evan (Bella and he split up) and restaurant Pink Salt in Double  Bay Sydney has a good Living Social deal happening where for $49 you get $100 worth of food. I would get one but my rule is only have one voucher going at the one time due to having missed some due to them expiring.

Lisa Rinna to join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and I think it is going to put some of the other cast members noses out of joint. (Source: Daily Mail)

Neil Perry is continuing to expand his empire this time he is opening a burger joint in World Square. (Source: Business Insider)

Former Australian Idol contestant Axle Whitehead has landed a role in the US series Shameless. He was also in Home and Away. (Source: SMH)

Southern Charm which aired on Arena is getting a second season. However chances are Thomas Ravanel the middle aged former pollie, convicted crim and current heavy drink probably won’t be on it as he is running as an independent for Senate. Don’t think I am criticsing him he was one of the most compelling reality TV characters seen on our screens in the last few years. Oh and he the 50 year old managed to knock one of the 21 year old cast members up. (Source: Mother Jones)

There is going to be a movie based on Marco Pierre White life as Ridley Scott has optioned his memoir The Devil In The Kitchen. I am thinking Christian Bale would be a good person to play Marco. Who would you like to see take on the role? (Source: Cinema Blend)

A person in a court case is alleging that Simon Cowell is gay. (Source:

Jillian Michaels has quit The Biggest Loser due to some fundamental differences with producers. (Source: Huffington Post)

And another list – 7 Biggest Dramatic Upsets on The Bachelor and Bachelorette. (Source: Wetpaint)

Uel and Shanelle from this year’s My Kitchen Rules have shelved  a future in food and are working as youth workers at their local church. They say the show gave them a platform to speak to youth. They are lovely. (Source: Daily Telegraph)

Reality Tidbits – Tuesday Morning

There are rumours that Roxy Jacenko might be making another reality TV show and she could be interesting if this email exhange with Sarah Stavrow is anything to go by.

Reality Tidbits – Wednesday Night

The Voice Kids promo is out and there are rumours that the winner has already been annointed. It is the kid in the hipster beanie, Ethan Karpathy.

It is ironic that the promo features the Black Eyed Peas Let’s Get It Started as this was the sanitised version of the original Let’s Get Retarded. (Source:

Lauryn Eagle appears to be done and dusted with Todd Carney as she is now using dating app Tinder. She might meet Shane Warne on there as he is threatening to sign up.
