Big Baking Show news, Survivor's missing Ponderosa, Holey Moley Muppets, and much more
Dear newsletter friends,
Another month, another week, another onslaught of emotionally challenging news. It’s a lot! Whenever I need a break, reality TV is there for me.
As usual, there’s a lot of reality TV!
And here’s what I wrote about:
A new true-crime show that invites us to identify the liar(s)—and has some incredibly inventive visual imagery
I answered a question about Survivor’s Ponderosa web series, and discuss why it disappeared
Reality TV news
A new Jackass is coming thanks to "the success of Jackass Forever," Paramount Global's CEO said.
The new The Circle has two Spice Girls, Mel B and Emma Bunton, who are playing as "Jared." The Los Angeles Times talked to producers about that.
Amazon Freevee announced its order of three new reality shows, including a Play-Doh competition.
🤩 I recommend
This show, especially if you just need to laugh
Past seasons of this web series, which can be hard to find but are worth it
This website, if you or anyone you know or love needs it, now or in the future
Thanks for watching along with me, and reading my stuff this week. I hope you have a terrific weekend.
🌄 This is Reality in Focus issue 289, first sent 6 May 2022, and it hopes The Muppets can figure out who they are now.
