Fall Reality Corner: Final Edition
First off, I'd like to apologize for the recent lack of attention to fall reality corner. due to various uncontrollable circumstances, i've kind of been slacking on it recently and i'm very sorry. i'll try to do better come winter reality corner. I don't really have much to say about this finale because i think it was pretty predictable and pretty anticlimactic. i've been rooting for caridee since megan was booted in the second episode, and i was not fooled by the editors (and tyra's) recent attempt to sway the fact that caridee was going to win by undeservingly putting her in the bottom two for the last few weeks. i was hoping eugena would come in second, but i knew that would never happen because it would be danielle and joanie all over again. i felt bad for melrose when she tried to get in on caridee and eugena's hug, but c'mon--don't be an idiot. she totally butted in on their moment and she knew they hated her. that's just weird. hopefully the second place prize was some therapy for that bipolar crazypants. i was also pissed by what a big deal was made by caridee ripping melrose's dress. it wasn't on purpose, it just seemed like it was a time filler. Fourfour made the very good point that the last three episodes of the cycle did not have writers (due to their strike and eventual canning) and you could really tell because the storylines were random and all over the place. and ten minutes were given to melrose throwing a shitfit about caridee accidentally stepping on her dress. ugh. all in all, the season as a whole was disappointing. i was glad that someone i was wholeheartedly rooting for actually one for once, but i really don't think there was a chance anything else could have happened. hopefully the next season antm will be back on its game. if anything, there will be less tyra since her show won't be on hiatus. so, at least that's something to look forward to.
