W00t! I just thought of another reality TV show that is in no way related to the fashiony-bitchy-girly crap that I posted about yesterday.


Now I’m sure this is not the first time I have posted about this shows supreme überness but to remember that you’d probably have to have been with this blog from pretty much the beginning which I KNOW you guys have not. Anyway, the show is basically about two best friends called Kenny Hotz and Spenny Rice who have a need to compete. Every week, they challenge each other to a bizarre competition – for the winner there is glory and for the loser… A terrible forfeit. But you know it’s gotta be so much more than that for it to even register on tomsbrain. Those who’ve watched it from the start know Kenny has a niche for cheating right in front of Spencer sometimes, and it’s hilarious when he gets away with it and even more hilarious when he doesn’t. Like last week (Wednesday 10:35PM, FX) Spenny made him lick fresh bird-poopy off of a car windshield. That thing is glass and the camera went inside to show you it. It was comedy, and the greatest kind of comedy at that. These guys basically humiliate themselves for our sheer entertainment, and you can’t say that about many of the zelebrities on reality shows.

It’s also worth mentioning that Sky did of course try to jump on the bandwagon when this first came about. They fashioned a UK version called Ed vs Spencer. Almost as funny had it not been for the complete carbon-copy of the American version, right down to the two “best friends”. Short lived (what isn’t these days on Sky) but I would not turn it over if it were repeated. Hint Hint FX!
