Battle of the Network Reality Stars
« on: August 03, 2005, 01:56:34 PM »
Battle of the Network Reality Stars
Premieres Wednesday, Aug 17 @ 9/8c

Bravo's summer debut of "Battle of the Network Reality Stars" will take some of today's biggest stars - 32 leading men and women from 16 reality TV shows - and pit them against each other as they test their athletic limits in honor of the hit series from the 70's. The six episode one-hour series originating from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

Sideline reporters include Omarosa Manigault Stallworth from "The Apprentice," Bob Guiney from "The Bachelor," and Trishelle Cannatella from "The Real World," who will join the program's play-by-play host Mike Adamle, former host of NBC Sports and "American Gladiators."

The reality TV stars battling it out for cash and prizes include Chip & Kim and Charla & Myrna from the "The Amazing Race," Nikki McKibbin and Ryan Starr from "American Idol," Brittany Brower from "Americas Next Top Model," Heidi Bressler and Bradford Cohen from the "The Apprentice," Adam Mesh from "Average Joe," Tina "Fabulous" Panas from "The Bachelor," Will Kirby (winner) and Mike "Boogie" Malin from "Big Brother," Evan Marriott from "Joe Millionaire," Matt Kennedy Gould from "The Joe Schmo Show," Wendy Pepper from "Project Runway," Coral Smith and Mike "The Miz" Mizanin from "The Real World," Theo Gantt from "Road Rules," Duncan Nutter from "Showbiz Moms & Dads," Richard Hatch (winner) and Susan Hawk from "Survivor," Rachel Love Frasier (winner) from "The Swan," and Valerie Penso from "Temptation Island," among others.

The updated format of the much-loved series is complete with teams of sweatsuit and Speedo-clad reality stars that will partake in physical and aggressively competitive challenges reminiscent of the original program. TV's most cherished and loathed reality stars will compete in a joust, navigate a kayak race, and battle it out in the famed tug-of-war, among other challenges. In a nod to today's reality shows, twists and turns along the way force team members to vote each other off, create alliances, and generate unending drama and tears.

I am definitely in.  This could be like a souped up version of the Real World Road Rules Challenge.

okay i watched this and it was VERY similar to the old battle of the network stars.  NOt much drama  or house scenes like a RW/RR challenge.  But they do vote someone off each week.  **will not give the ending as some may not have watched on who got voted*** I will post on Friday the results.

I did not know some of the contestants.

Any one else watch the show?

Okay last week...the bottom 3 teams had to vote someone off....Kim volunteered for her team since her and Chip were a team....They voted off Heidi from apprentence since she quit during her josting  fight and then the other team voted off Charla.  In a twist these players were not going home, going to another team....Kim actually got to stay with her team as she picked the right color.  The other 2 were switched.

This week since no one went home, the last place team would lose 2 players..... The red team Team Coral lost as they were tied for last place but lost the last swim meet.  Two players volunteered to leave to help the team it had to be a man and woman...Charla and Duncan nutter

Well the twist this week was that they would replace the 2 players with new reality starts...and the 1st place team could pick what team they went to...and pick who came off another team.  Well they cose to mover Gervous and Tina fabulous from their team and put them on team Coral.  So the light blue team would get 2 new reality players....they got JEri from Survivor 2 and soem guy from average joe ~ he looks like Howard stern.

next week the team at the bottom ..... all go home 1 whole team will go home...Should be interesting to see  if they then compete with 3 teams or replace all 8 with a whole new team.  Competition next week is running, football and not sure the other one.

i record this and can fastforward through the commercial and the show is done in no time flat.

Yup!  I've been watching too (next day).  I'm getting tired of all the old flashbacks and stupid interviews though.  I can't stand bachelor BOB.   :/       )-**   I can't remember what the third event for next week will be either.   *(^

I watched the first two episodes of this show and enjoyed both of them.  My favorite moment was Charla eliminating Susan Hawk in Dodgeball.  If I were Susan Hawk I'd be a little embarrassed.

It premiered three weeks ago.  Sadly, Charla got eliminated from the show last week.  She did have some highlights though as she eliminated Susan Hawk in Dodgeball which was awesome.  Her lowlight was when she was used as a punching bag in the joust by girl from "The Swan".

OH MY GOSH I just watched the show!!!!  I am not sure which was funnier seeing him crash or seeing him whine about being beat at the end.  ((^   And too funny it was Gervaous that beat them!  I did feel bad for Jeri even though she did horribly  in the running. :]

But the question now is will they bring in another team or leave it at 3 teams?

My DH has blonde curly hair and we always called him the greatest american hero (for you youngsters it was  a TV show) and to see him on the show tonight I was cracking up!!

Well sadly I watched this week's show....the team taht got eliminated I liked.  :':')  Bye bye Geravase, Coral, Will, Evan, Melissa and Tina Fabulous.

They had them vote off 2 people in the beginning and those people became a team.  The water polo...several on Team Coral could not swim so it was bad.  Them Coral got hurt on Bull riding and the multi person legged race, the straps kept coming off.

Team underdog....I just do not like that Adam guy, he talks so much smack about everyone.
