PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

7. "RE: My interview with Realityshack...."
First: the Shift keys should be on the lower right and left of your keyboard. The taser charge normally carried through them has probably been disabled. Try it out.

Second...

Y'know, some of us did ask you to talk about your experiences and the behind-the-scenes stuff that went on during filming, taking 'you' as 'every AJ that's posted here so far'. Y'all shut up so fast, we'd swear Carson had just kissed you. That doesn't exactly make anyone likely to ask you or the others for an interview, because it feels like you're not willing, able, or contractually obligated to talk.

As far as being interested in the show and the people on it go -- that's a longer track.

Let's start with the show itself. It's been slow in here: I freely admit that. This is mostly because we're not seeing anything we haven't seen before. The three non-Adam AJ series have all played out to the exact same script. Model chosen. AJs come in. Model shocked. AJs do their level best. Model starts to warm to AJs. Hunks arrive. Hunks disrupt house life. Model starts to forget AJs exist. Model dons lots of makeup and goes undercover. AJs and models cut evenly until final two is reached. Hunk wins, for really low value of 'win'. Model and hunk break up two weeks later. Your crew is about halfway through the storyline and to date, we haven't seen one so-called plot twist that wasn't copied from a prior season, almost shot-for-shot. Do something original and you'll get our attention. As-is, the show's following has dropped off, and will continue to decrease for every iteration where nothing changes. As SilentJ noted, a lot of us watch to root for the underdog, but seeing the longshot come in last every time gets boring fast. If you can stand to keep coming back year after year for exactly the same result, you're either cheering for the hunks, a macochist, or a Cubs fan. Possibly the last two at the same time.

The people on the show -- for the most part, this is a site by the bashers, of the bashers, and for the bashers. We respect a few people, but it has to be earned, and no one's going to get universal acclaim. (Some forums have gay marriage, abortion, and the left/right schism to set them against each other. We have Charla and Rupert.) We will make fun of anyone. We don't even give free passes to our own. One of our nearest and dearest, or most feared and detested, made it through an entire season on FOX -- and one day, if he's very good, we may actually let him forget it for a whole minute. Right now, some of our denizens have applications in for Survivor and TAR, and if they make it, we'll cheer for them, throw a party, and then rip them into a very large number of very small pieces. It's what we do.

Now: we respect you for showing up, because that takes some courage. We're even willing to take you at your word for your identity. (Try showing up at Survivor Sucks without a note signed by the president of NBC and see how far you get.) But we're not going to fall in love with you on first site. You haven't done much here to distinguish yourself -- and let's face it: you have done almost exactly nothing on the show to stand out. Feel free to blame the editing if you like, but the fact remains that we've barely heard from you in airtime, and you haven't said all that much here either.

The more you put yourself on the line -- both in the present and the past -- the more we'll respect you. Some of us will probably start to like you, and you'll have a solid place here that'll last well beyond the show's duration.

But so far, you've been very quiet, waiting for us to make the first move.

It doesn't work with us.

It didn't worth with Anna, either.
