    That was very refreshing, wasn't it? Which only adds to my frustration at not being able to get a better take on who these people are.

    Anybody care to share their favorites?
    I love The Amazing Race. There is some bickering, but it's not quite as pervasive as in other shows. It also has the aspect of providing challenges that are fun to watch, with the bonus of seeing vistas from around the world.

    I also watch Survivor and The Apprentice, but there is that that does go on. I have been enjoying the newest entry, The Contender, much more than I thought I would, and in that show there is most definitely going on, but the backgrounds they provide about the contestants is wonderful (which made the void on The Entertainer that much more obvious to me).

    Edited to add: After reading my post, it's quite obvious my name is Roseskid, and I am addicted to reality tv.

    I've never watched AI - all singing all the time doesn't appeal to me. One other show I really liked was The Mole. Unfortunatley, it looks like I was the only one.

    I only found this board because of the Entertainer. I watch almost anything about Las Vegas. I like American Casino on the Discovery Channel but I havent seen any new episodes in awhile.
    I used to watch Survivor but just don't get into it anymore.

    I don't watch much TV either. I only watched the Entertainer because I was flipping through channels and saw Jennifer who reminded me of someone I went to college with, so naturally I was hooked. I loved the show. I never missed it, I wish I would have known about this forum earlier. I stumbled on this site because I was trying to find out what happened to every one. I'm supposed to go to Las Vegas and I wanted to see where Jennifer, Joe, and Dave were appearing, I thought I knew where Delisco was, but now I'm not sure.

    FITC - Joe, Dave and Jennifer all have websites (you can find them under their threads) that's probably one of the places to check for upcoming dates where and when they will be performing.

    Interesting update about Wayne in the lvrj today here is a link.

    http://www.reviewjournal.com/lvrj_ho.../26247500.html


    Delisco starts at the LV Hilton in September. My take on the article is Wayne is really cutting back his show schedule.
    Good luck Delisco.

    This is the article Lasvegasfan refers to in the post above.

    Two key questions remain unanswered in the aftermath of Wayne Newton's announced April 20 departure from the Stardust:

    • Was it Newton's last stand as a Las Vegas headliner?

    • And how does his exodus from the Stardust effect Delisco, the winner of Newton's reality show "The Entertainer?"

    No one in Newton's camp is answering questions, but Newton filled in a couple details after Sunday's final episode of the E! Entertainment series.

    "I will feature him (in Newton's show) and he will start at the Hilton in September," Newton told me during his surprise birthday party in the Hilton's Glimmer Lounge.

    "We'll be writing his act," added Newton, who replaced Bob Hope as the USO's ambassador in late 2001.

    A bigger question is what Newton plans for his next act. Voice problems have dogged him for years, and crowd counts have slipped dramatically.

    His relationship with the Hilton on "The Entertainer" project, at a time when he was under contract with the Stardust, raised eyebrows, and it is no secret that the Hilton's new ownership has been hinting quietly about more big moves, in the manner of the Barry Manilow signing, being in the works.

    Given Newton's role as co-executive producer in "The Entertainer," there's been speculation that his next step might be as a talent producer.

    This is the first time I've actually read what we have been saying all along...he has had voice problems for years. Thanks, lvfan, it was an interesting read.

    Since I have too much free time today here is another article I found this one was witten when the show started and was about three cast members from Vegas

    Having premiered this past Sunday, and now continuing on for the next nine weeks, The E! Entertainment network is presenting "The Entertainer," which is a reality show starring Wayne Newton in search of the next great Vegas performer.* The exposure on national television will be tremendous, and the winner will secure a headlining gig at the Las Vegas Hilton.* Of the ten finalists, three are from Las Vegas—Joe Trammel, Nathan Burton, and Jennifer Joseph.
    *
    ** Over the course of the series, ten performers--including male and female vocalists, illusionists, comedians, and specialty act performers--each take a gamble on their talents for a chance for the "gig of a lifetime." The group, all of whom must possess a unique combination of raw talent, creativity, teamwork and stamina, will endure grueling performance challenges, as well as tasks that take the participants behind the scenes at the most exciting locations on and off The Strip.
    ** Each week, Newton, along with his mainstay team of judges and a celebrity guest judge, cut the deck of finalists until only one shining star is left. The last one left on the stage will perform alongside the legendary entertainer during the grand finale episode.
    *
    ** "I am so excited about working on and seeing this project through to fruition with E!* I believe this show will fill a much needed void in the training ground of onstage performers that no longer exists," said Newton. "It is a win-win for our audience, talent, our town and entertainment. What could be more fun and worthwhile?"
    *
    ** "I am not a dream killer. I certainly wouldn't do anything that would even remotely seem unkind on national television. But I also am the kind of person that if I have something to say, I will say it so that we can move on and put that behind us. So in terms of trying to characterize myself with Simon or Donald, I really don't fit into either of those categories."
    *
    ** Prop comic Joe Trammel said, "I was in shock when they called me to go on `The Entertainer.' They looked at thousands of different people. When I went to `E!' it became so real because I was down to the top 25. It started to be a reality to me. I wasn't allowed any contact with the outside world for 35 days. It was like entertainment boot camp. I was able to see Las Vegas outside the suite through the window but I wasn't allowed to touch it. The hardest part was being away from my daughter. I began conforming to this new life in a new world. It was like a dream, and when I was released I felt like I woke up out of a dream."
    *
    ** "When I got out I was in tears because I missed my family so much," says Trammel.* "It was like entertainment jail. We're not allowed to talk about it so I couldn't tell anybody about anything that happened on the show. It was strange when I got out because I would wake up and feel that there were still cameras on me. It took time to adjust. Wayne Newton treated us with respect, like the professional talent that we are. He was truthful and honest and never degraded anybody. He taught us so much. As long as I've been in this entertainment business, I thought I knew it all. Once I met Wayne Newton, I learned that I didn't know half as much as I thought I did. I'm high on life right now three days before the reality series begins. It's strange because it seems like it was just yesterday. There are so many stories, and I'm interested in seeing what stories that they used. They could have made 100 episodes. Variety entertainment is a dying breed and "V!" is the only venue in Las Vegas where you can see it and now I feel like Wayne is giving that venue to the world via television. My mom danced on the Luke King show in Phoenix while his brother played the steel guitar and he sang."
    *
    ** Magician Nathan Burton said, "My wife saw an LA casting web site and talked me into sending my press material to them. They called me for an interview after I went to the Las Vegas audition. They called me in a week and said, `Come to LA.' I thought I'd take my best illusions to perform. I was in the top 25 and made the top 10. I'm the general manager of the "V!" show, the nightclub and restaurant. For now I'm cutting back a little bit because I'm doing a world class stunt with being in a box hanging in front of the "V!" Theatre in the Desert Passage. It will be seven days, with seven showgirls in a box from March 9-15. Las Vegas is a hard city to be in and lots of dirty stuff happens but Wayne Newton assured me that positive stuff would happen. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I had to live with 10 other people in a $45 million suite. It potentially could be the big break. It's a $1 million headlining contract, a reality show so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. I was really ready to go back to work. I lost a lot of money doing this show so now it was time to go back to work. I'm preparing for the stunt right now. I'm excited and waited my whole career for a shot like this. You're going to see the best and worst of Nathan on this show. It's going to be an explosion putting the stunt and the reality show together. It's not always about winning."

    ** Jennifer Joseph grew up as a shy child in an outgoing ethnic family in southern California. Overweight and uninterested in school, she would escape to her room singing at the top of her lungs to an imaginary audience. When she was 13 her fate would change (little did she know) when her parents moved her to Las Vegas, NV. Still shy, she spent her afternoons and evenings belting out songs by Whitney Houston, Linda Ronstadt, Barbra Streisand, and Aretha Franklin. In a chance encounter at 18, a friend would hear her sing and suggest she get in shape and fulfill her lifelong dream of performing in front of a real audience. That vote of confidence was all it took. She lost a total of 100lbs, and at age 19, she started singing in major casinos all over the Las Vegas strip and eventually became the principal vocalist in major shows such as Folies Bergere and Legends in Concert. After a while, Jennifer went on to perfect a tribute to one of her favorite singers, Linda Ronstadt and appear in Atlantic City, NJ; Branson, MO; Myrtle Beach, SC showrooms, just to name a few. In 1995 she won the title of Miss Nevada and went on to win the Talent Award at the 1995-96 Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City. With that title she was able to mentor thousands of kids about how to raise their self-esteem and overcome hardships. She has been in many plays and musicals and in 1998 she braved the Harlem audience to get a standing ovation at the historical "Showtime at the Apollo". This multitalented woman with a huge vocal range and a big voice has sang, danced and acted her way through stage, television and screen yet still manages to stay a bit shy like the girl next door she'll always be.
    ** We hope for the best with our local stars.* We want them all to win that contract.
