new reality shows
« on: July 04, 2007, 20:28:51 PM »
just stumbled onto these whilst googling...some are funny, some are only amusing in USA but thought i'd post anyway...

Cure Eye for the Straight Guy: What happens when Robert Smith and his band mates perform makeovers on unsuspecting Middle Americans? Be prepared for scads of black eyeliner, Aqua Net, wispy scarves and blood-red lipstick. And tears. And maybe some voodoo.

Tears for Fears Factor: We all know these guys can create catchy music. But just how good are they at commandeering an oil tanker, scuba diving in sour milk and swallowing handfuls of live bees? Viewers will fall head over heels for this adventure series, where real people battle members of the platinum-selling '80s group for fame, prizes and a music video directed by McG.

Boy Meets Boy George: Watch the drama unfold as a batch of straight and gay fellas try to woo the pants off of Culture Club's ex-front man without tripping his gaydar.

Depeche Mole: Each member of the group will do anything to win the show's $1 million prize (especially since they've made little dough in recent years). Problem: One of them is working for the other side, conspiring to ruin every move!

Colonial Bauhaus: The 17th century goes goth when Peter Murphy's seminal rock group sheds its pasty makeup, moves into a cozy cottage and is forced to bake muffins, attend church services and use the word "ye."

Average Joe Jackson: He may have ruled discotheques in 1982 with Steppin' Out, but underneath it all, Joe Jackson really is an ordinary guy. Viewers following lanky, 49-year-old Joe's quest for a buxom soul mate each week will surely ask each other, "Is she really going out with him?"

Survivor: Survivor: In the hit series' best season yet, '80s icons Survivor are plucked from the States and planted on a deserted island, where they put their lives and the name of their band on the line. Most heated moment: episode three, when lead singer Dave Bickler comes face-to-face with a real-life "eye of the tiger."

Mrs. Mr. Mister: Inspired by The Bachelor, several women vie for former lead singer Richard Page. Who will take his broken wings and teach him to fly again?

Go-Go Schmo: Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Coffey and other members of the Go-Go's think they're taking part in an American Idol-style competition, worth more than $2 million in royalties and record contracts. But as viewers quickly learn, the joke's on them: The entire show is a setup, and all of the contestants are actors! Will Jane Wiedlin throw a tantrum once the secret is out? Our lips are sealed.

The Simple Minds Life: Since topping the charts with The Breakfast Club's Don't You (Forget About Me) in 1985, these Scottish lads have been keeping a low profile. On this series, watch them get ambushed at home, put on a plane and sent to live with a middle-class family in Alabama.

Who Wants to Be a Maniac?: At last count, the band 10,000 Maniacs had about 9,994 openings. Needless to say, the competition on this series won't be too fierce.

Big Country Brother: Are pain and truth the things that really matter to Big Country? Once the band is locked in a house and recorded 24 hours a day, we'll find out for sure. (Appropriately enough, one food challenge will ask members to grow flowers in the desert.)

Extreme Makeover: Gary Cherone, Nuno Bettencourt and the other members of Extreme come on, you loved More Than Words back in the day subject themselves to rhinoplasty, liposuction, hair implants and an excruciating exercise regimen for three months. The most beautiful man goes on to compete in a pageant alongside revamped members of A-Ha, Duran Duran and Wang Chung.
