I used to be a big Scrubs fan. In fact, I still am. The thing is, it’s always been on against other shows I like more: 24, Survivor, Amazing Race, etc. For three years, I was kept away from my beloved Scrubs (okay, I don’t like it that much. I’m trying to be dramatic here though). Luckily, with TVgasm’s lovely dual-tuner Tivo, conflicts are for the most part a thing of the past. So it was with great joy that I sat down to take in my first episode of Scrubs since mid 2002. Yes, finally I could sink my teeth into a funny, scripted show and not think of all that other trash I watch or observe.
So what should happen on the one time I tune in? My favorite of occurrences: a reality star extra. Yes, in last night’s repeat episode of Scrubs, none other than Bachelorette contestant Ryan Sheaffer popped up as one of Turk’s buddies.
“But wait!” you may say (if you are so inclined to be drawn into such stupid scandals). “Isn’t Ryan a teacher?”
According to his ABC Bio, yes. But seeing him on screen once again proves that these dating shows are nothing but staged circuses filled with aspiring actors, recycled reality stars, and the occasional gay man. Hmmm… I guess that’s really not that earth-shattering. Even so, can ABC even TRY to screen their bachelors? This is getting ridiculous.
Apologies for the grainy screenshots. The scene was poorly lit.
