Way Too Scary
For Me - October 13
Today is Friday the 13th.
Ooooooohhhh. Aaaaaaah. Last year at this time, I did a
movie review for the reality horror movie 'The Scorned'
and I found that it wasn't that scary. What was much
scarier was to see a Bai Ling performance on But Can
They Sing. So with that thought in mind, and with tongue
firmly planted in cheek, it's time to talk about some of
the scarier things that have happened so far this
Tyra Banks as a Diva, America's Next Top Model -
It was great to see Tyra Banks back, and her impression
of a Diva was hysterically funny on the first episode.
Her 'evil' face would scare me if that's what answered
the door while Trick or Treating.
Hans going over the cliff, The Price is Right -
There are some pricing games that are ridiculously easy
if you've seen them before on The Price is Right. Hit
Me, Ten Chances (The last number is ALWAYS a zero) and
Cliffhangers. Make the three prices 25, 35, 45, and you
will almost always win. What do we get instead? 50 for
the first guess, and 55 for the second guess - and we
don't even get a third guess. Hans goes flying over the
cliff as he decides to dress up this year as buzzard
Brigitte Nielsen, Midnight Money Madness - She
wasn't scary as frightening, or even bad-scary. She
reminds me of the new mistress of late-night, if she
gives it a chance. She could be someone like...oh I
Cheech Marin, Celebrity Duets - In every talent
show, there always seems to be one underdog singer who
just doesn't belong. The trend started with Nikki
McKibbin and has moved to the celebrity shows, where Bai
Ling took the stage. This year's version? Cheech Marin,
who decided to be Leatherface and butcher almost every
song he performed.
Call-in Contestants, Midnight Money Madness,
Playmania, Et Al. - When you're watching a show at
1:30 am, does it feel like you're a zombie? Apparently,
you're not alone, as we get callers who insist on
repeating wrong answers (maybe in the hope that when
they say it, they will be right) or saying ridiculous
answers that won't be remotely correct. This show is
perfect if you want that 'Night of the Living Dead'
Fat Joe on Wild 'N Out - He acted like he was on
Mars and it seemed like he didn't know where he was. Is
it just me, or did it look like Fat Joe, before
appearing on Wild 'N Out, attended a Paris Hilton Girls
Gone Wild party before-hand?
$196,000 down the toilet, Deal or No Deal -
Amounts have been lost before, but usually, even when
you lose over $100,000, you've dealt for something
decent. not this time, as the contestant tried to press
her luck with $300, $750 and $500,000 left...and found
the $500,000 in a suitcase that wasn't hers. She winds
up with $750, but at least that's more than enough for a
bald cap to dress up like Howie Mandel. Frightening,
Clay Aiken's hairdo - Now you know that I am a
Clay Aiken fan, and although I may not enjoy his music
as much as Clay Nation, I will stick up for him and
defend him with the situation that he is dealing with
right now. That being said, with that hair cut, he
looked like he was going to a Rocky Horror Picture Show
party dressed up as one of the creatures of the night.
Flava Flav as...'The sexiest person alive'???? -
Until Saw 3 comes out, This is probably by far the
scariest thing out there right now. According to the
aforementioned Tyra Banks, Flava Flav is the sexiest
person around. That alone would be scary enough, but
what's scarier is that the producers could easily find
20 women who will fight, spit, and defecate in the hopes
of making Flava Flav their man. Yikes.
GSNN at TPIR, October 5, 2006 - The most twisted
horrifying images may have come on that day, when the
whole lot of us appeared on your television set. Urban
Legend has even suggested that the sight of us has
caused some television sets to crack. EEEEK!!!!!
So that's 10 scary things that I have seen so far this
year. Join us next week to see some more treats...though
if you know me, you should be prepared for a trick or
If you see Gordon Pepper dressed as Tyra Banks this
Halloween, do yourself a favor... give him all of your
horror DVDs and run. E-mail
