On #TheTraitorsCanada, Travon had thought #MikeDurzo was a Traitor for a while but then changed his mind and explained why to Mike. Of course Mike knew the truth and told us he didn’t care what Travon had to say! 🤣 1st TikTok today: https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT85Tmy7j/

It’s somewhat amazing to me that #RealityTV competitors, such as #GurleenMaan on #TheTraitorsCanada, make it to the end & decide “it’s not a team game” — it never was! It’s good that she realizes it now but she should’ve a long time ago. 3rd TikTok today: https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT85FLPGo/

The return of the debate on politicians in #RealityTV is highlighted by #NigelFarage’s participation in #ImACeleb. Previous political figures, including #NadineDorries and #MattHancock, have stirred controversy. A recent YouGov survey reflects mixed public opinions on the suitability of #politicians in reality TV.
Leroy and Gurleen plotted their path to the end of #TheTraitorsCanada as they want to take out “useless” Travon and “distraction” Donna — it doesn’t even matter if they’re Traitors, which is the right attitude! 2nd TikTok today: https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT85LoAN2/

It’s been about a year since I showed up here and so it’s time for an updated #introduction.
I'm currently living in #Mexico thriving on tacos and Modelo!
Things I will be talking about on this account.
#tv, specifically #realitytv as I'm a huge fan of shows like #survivor, #thechallenge, #amazingrace, etc... If someone can get voted out and go home, I probably watch it. Big fan of competition and artistic creation reality tv.
I think that's pretty much me in a nutshell. I look forward to expanding who I'm following here!
@PlaneSailingGames @dangillmor @TheAtlantic Trump understands the lowest common denominator with those who watch #RealityTV. Their daily lives are so impoverished they project themselves into the characters who live lives that are #Rich #Powerful #Privileged #Glamorous as #EscapistFantasy. It also comports with the #WhiteChristianNationalist #Persecution #Martyrdom and #Suffering complex.
Reality TV is watched by tens of millions of people around the world — but how "real" should it be? USA Today spoke to experts including @realityblurred about what audiences are owed by cast members, and how much privacy they're entitled to — for example, around new relationships or serious health situations. What do you think?
Why did #Netflix never make additional seasons of #TheBigFlowerFight, a delightful 2020 reality show about florists competing to create the most outstanding topiary? It was fun, low stakes drama and visually stunning! Plus I learned a lot of things about flowers and grasses that I didn't know before. I need more of this show in my life.
Marcy Wheeler says Trump's going to lose his NY trial, and she knows that because the judge has already ruled against him! But despite that fact — despite reality — he will still play his reality TV role "to create a reality in which he will have correctly predicted a loss that was baked in last week." And his gullible followers will flock right after him, claiming that he has prophetic insights and the media lie to us.
The new #Survivor45 #WhyXLost #podcast is here as Jessica Lewis & I are joined by #Survivor 44 runner-up Heidi Lagares-Greenblatt for a great discussion! Although Hannah quit, we have plenty to talk about! Some people are unprepared strategically, socially, or physically. Which of these most impacted her? What do we think about her decision?
Why Hannah Lost: https://robhasawebsite.com/why-___-lost-premiere-survivor-45/
oh no someone just took out their guitar, this should no longer be allowed on #RealityTV 😆
My new #BB25 #WhyXLost #podcast is here! Jared or Cameron will return to the game but they were evicted so we examine their games. They had a lot of mistakes in common. Did either follow ANY Rules? Why Cameron & Jared Lost: https://robhasawebsite.com/bb25-whyblanklost-week7/
Plus my cohost Ovi Kabir discusses his own experience as an evicted player in #BigBrother 21’s Camp Comeback. And we look ahead to how each needs to improve if they return: https://youtu.be/k63wzRtYrDs?si=Xlm3NCuWCeIGQJ_R
"The final tip of the casting trifecta is finding players who are simply good at… talking. 'You have to be able to tell a story,' says Probst. 'Because we task the players with a giant responsibility. They are the narrators for their season.'"
Dalton Ross goes behind the scenes of casting for Survivor's 45th(!) season: https://ew.com/tv/survivor-45-behind-the-scenes-casting-cover-story
Parenting influencer Ruby Franke was recently arrested on felony abuse charges, and she's just the latest in a long line of YouTubers, Instagrammers and reality stars to be accused of harming and exploiting their children. This @Flipboard Storyboard looks at some high-profile cases and how the laws are evolving to protect kids.
My new guilty pleasure, the investigative new TV show, "Caught In The Act." Don't judge me!

So #TopChef has been filming in #MadisonWI over the past few days. This morning, they were at the Dane County Farmer's Market; all the contestants had to buy some ingredients from the vendors for a challenge, which was held in the building that houses L'Etoile/Graze. It's so interesting reading about it on local social media. I can't wait to watch this season.
My latest #BigBrother25 #Podcast is here! Hisam went from being King to getting thrown out, so we’re back to figure out what happened. He said, “they were looking for a reason to evict me,” is that true or did he provide the reasons easily? How did his emotional play connect all of his game issues together? And do we think it was the right move for the other players? It’s time to figure out Why Hisam Lost: https://robhasawebsite.com/bb25-whyblanklost-week3/
The new #BigBrother25 #WhyXLost #podcast is out! Reilly was 1st HOH & should’ve consolidated power/made good relationships. Ovi Kabir & I are here to talk about what happened instead. Where’d she go wrong & why couldn’t she avoid Hisam’s wrath? We figure out Why Reilly Lost: https://robhasawebsite.com/bb25-whyblanklost-week2/
morning musing: #RealityTV has been a major player in training the general public to think of people in terms of #hero or #villain Producers film for hours then edit it down to make the audience #love or #hate someone. It seems to me that this "formula" has infected our #news and #politics and created a dystopic society.
Wow. Watching this and for fans of Love Is Blind & Reality TV the sets sounds just horrendous.Completely abusive conditions. And it looks like Netflix committed tax fraud around this as well.
We're honored to be joined by Gilles De Coster, host of our favorite Belgian reality TV game show - De Mol - to talk about the process, inspirations, and execution of the sublime game design behind its thrilling, subversive challenges
We spend the first hour giving all the context you'll need to follow along, before diving into the interview. This is a special one for us, check it out!
The all-conquering #realityTV format; competitors do tasks each week, one wins (happy face), one leaves the show (sad face);
from the new wedding planning show, to the established #pottery throw-down, from the now (I think cancelled) dog grooming to the frankly weird #makeup series; from the long established Aprentice, to any number of #baking & #cooking shows.... and the great woodworking one.
my only Q. is: is there *any* professional (or amateur) activity the format cannot be applied to?
#BigBrother25 premier sucked up until the end.
It was slow, boring and blah. Unnecessary bits.

#TheTraitors Australia has been out a while, but The Traidar #podcast wrapped up its Season Finale coverage with me as the guest again! We discussed the winner & other finalists, plus the season overall! Hear my thoughts compared to the US & UK versions!
Plus, if you follow me for science/pseudoscience topics, you can skip to ~1 hr 25 min in to hear my thoughts on Chloe the supposed #psychic, including my experiences with others like her!
My name is Justin, I'm a Television Freelancer in Southern California. Long time presence on the 🐦 app, lukewarm presence on Threads. Returning to Mastodon (now on a new instance!) because I think this place gets my ✨humor✨.
I guested on the #RHAP podcast “You Thought You Knew” to discuss #Survivor Jenna Lewis & ask whether she took a “heel turn” between Season 1 & All-Stars. Did she discover strategy & become a villain or were seeds already there? We don’t only look back today but use our memories/thoughts from the time & contemporary articles like those I wrote back then! People usually focus on big characters in her seasons so it was fun to look back at her!
"Lately, the creators of everything from celebrity gabfests to car racing competitions — the realm of so-called "#UnscriptedTV" — have been finding ways to slip information about human-caused #ClimateChange and sustainable living onto our screens."
Why does this thing exist? (Podcast)
Episode 51: “Little stinking old worm”
A dive into celebrity culture this week, as Dean wonders why he's on a gossip site and Simon is irked by feeble reality TV merch, before they explore an antipodean radio station
#Survivor44 is over & it’s time for one more #podcast to wrap it all up as we are joined by special guests Tiffany Seely & Dr. David Voce from #Survivor 41! We look back at the season & answer listener questions as we cover topics ranging from why the Tika 3 were so successful & how other players could’ve countered them to which Tika 3 best represents each of the Three Stooges! And much more, both lighthearted and more serious: https://robhasawebsite.com/survivor44-whyblanklost-postseason/
It's #Newstodon Friday again and today we have something very very special! We have 3 new or newly awakened accounts from folks in our newsroom...follow them & give them all your best #fediverse tips!
Please welcome all these folks as they make their #introduction!
#Survivor44 has come to an end & we have our winner, meaning a Finale podcast! The Tika 3 controlled the postmerge & made it to the Finale with Heidi & Lauren. Why did Lauren & Carson end up on the jury? And what were the differences among the Final 3 that resulted in the last vote for a million dollars? It’s time to determine Why Yam Yam Won and Heidi, Carolyn, Carson, and Lauren Lost: https://robhasawebsite.com/survivor44-episode13-whyblanklost/
The Truth Unrestricted #podcast has returned from its break & I’m back as a guest! In this episode, we discussed fandom, including aspects like finding out you disagree significantly with the opinions of someone you were a fan of! This took us to compare stars from years ago up to today’s social media, and we also of course talked about #Survivor / #RealityTV fans & finding out the real views of some players we liked on TV but not so much in real life: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1947369/12888601
Time for another #Survivor podcast! Jaime made us laugh in #Survivor44 , sometimes with her & sometimes because we knew it wasn’t true. But contagiously-happy wasn’t her whole game. We saw hints of more & now with additional info, we look back to put together the puzzle & see the game she was playing, what she attempted, & what she did/didn’t figure out as we determine Why Jaime Lost: https://robhasawebsite.com/survivor44-episode12-whyblanklost/
I'm so excited for Johan Svenson, one of my friends, who's a host in Peacock's upcoming "The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning", produced by Amy Poehler:
I think this has potential to be a mega-hit, considering how much Americans tend to hoard …
This "Physical 100" reality tv show is fun to watch. Unfortunately, only 2 new episodes per week. It's kind of like squid games, except no dying if you'e eliminated. They're really working hard in those challenges! 👏👏👏 It's interesting to see when they're up against each other which type of athletic capabilities and strategies will win.
Maybe I'll have to watch some of "Ultimate Beastmaster" to fill in the time while I wait for new episodes.
These grifter stories are about leveraging and weaponizing white femininity.
We discovered Love Without Lies on Netflix! Having to read subtitles means my brain and eyes are sufficiently engaged to not second screen the whole time, which then means I'm keeping my elbows still. Also, we figured out today that our neurodivergent household is 100% watching this show and others like it as a sort of anthropological study of neurotypical behaviour. 😂 Win/win.
Thank you for all the great heist film recommendations! New question:
If, like me, you love watching cooking competitions (e.g., Great British Bake Off, #Masterchef, Chopped), what have been some of your favorite rivalries? Who are the contestants who brought the drama?
I'm interested in #programming (esp. #rust, #PlaydateDev, #OperatingSystems, #DevTools), #gaming (esp. #RPG, #incremental, #MMORPG like #EverQuest), #electronics, #TechHistory, #philosophy, #grammar, #craft, #health, #GenerativeArt, #pets. Ok, ok... and some #RealityTV.
Hatred is not strength. We don't have to "live with it." Reject selfishness. Support health, housing, and education. Mask up.
I've decided that infosec.exchange is where I'm landing so dropping a new #introduction.
Professionally, I’m a Director of #Engineering at a #startup building cool things in both the ticketing/live event space as well as diving head first into #web3.
I'm currently in Mexico thriving on tacos and Modelo!
Thing's I will be talking about on this account.
I think that's pretty much me in a nutshell. I look forward to expanding who I'm following here!
I've been lurking for a while, so I suppose it's time for my #introduction!
Let me introduce myself via hashtag interests—
I got the idea from @AllysonShaw
Okay… I better stop! 🙃🤣

Hi everyone! #Introduction time!
Most of you know me from Twitter but since I'm going to be on Mastodon more often, I figured I may as well (re)introduce myself. I am #biologist who instructs #robots to create assays for #DrugDiscovery. I completed my degree in and am still very interested in #neuroscience. Hobbies include #TTRPGs and other board games, philosophy of science, and watching #RealityTV. My partner is @john and here is a goofy photo of us!
