Last night on TV, racist or not? was the question on both Survivor and American Idol, while Dance Crew had some dance karaoke for us. Come on in!
Ripen that banana.
After the last tribal council, things are glossed over quickly at the Heroes tribe, as if nothing ever happened, which is kind of disturbing. Meanwhile, Parvati is getting her sexy on at the villains tribe, and people are noticing that Russell seems to be getting a little too close to her. When the immunity challenge ends up being a wrestling competition with no puzzle component, the Heroes unsurprisingly run away with it, because they’re all brawn and no brains. The Villains try to choose between sending Randy home for being too old and sending Parvati home for being too sexy. Randy keeps trying to tell everyone that the Amanda/Cirie/James alliance is going to join up with Parvati and run the game, but no one listens and they send him home, even though I’m kind of afraid that he’s right this time. Either way, he’s going to have to go be racist somewhere else.
American Idol: Flipit
It’s a season of some seriously crappy talent, but the eliminations last night we just downright bizarre. Janell, Ashley, Joe and Tim were sent packing while Lacey and her Ronald McDonald hair stayed. HUH? I knew Joe was in trouble cuz he looks like a monkey and America generally doesn’t like that look. Also, he spoke some Spanish, which America also apparently doesn’t like. I have no idea if we are a racist country or not, but when he started giving his family shout out on the performance show I turned to my friend and said “Americans don’t like Spanish. It’s like a secret language. You know you’re being made fun of but you don’t know about what and ‘sticks and stones’ in Spanish doesn’t rhyme, leaving you defenseless.” Sure enough, GONE.
Kris and Cholaheta performed, and Chola in particular reminded us what this show can bring if you just give it a little time to become a ripe banana, as Ellen would say. I’m sticking with it!
America’s Best Dance Crew: PottyMouth
On last night’s America’s Best Dance Crew, Omoron continued to live up to his name, Lil Mama has turned herself into a Lil Meemaw, and JC got booed a lot by the audience. Shut up, audience.
This week’s challenge was the Music Video Challenge where crews had to incorporate moves from, you guessed it, a music video into their routine. But wait! There’s a twist! When they perform the moves, the video play on a screen behind them so the judges can see how well they do. Or don’t.
Come back for the full recap and we can talk about each crew, and my disappointment over one of the crews in the bottom. Betcha know which one!
