    Oh yes...I'm probably spelling it incorrectly but I think his name was Twilley!

    I watched Average Joe but can't think who he is.

    Speaking of spegs/Stephenie Meyer, she recapped Manhunt. The host of that show posted here in response to her recaps.

    My first writing assignment was recapping a show I'm sure no one remembers, I Hate My Job, which was hosted by Al Sharpton. Frank, who was one of the contestants, used to PM me.

    Oh my gosh Mariner, I have no memory of that show whatsoever. It sounds like a real dog.

    The first show I recapped was "Trading Spouses." The people on those shows were usually happy to correspond with you and quite a few came to FORT to defend themselves. The family in rural Louisiana who run a swamp tour come to mind - the Loupe family. Just last year my sister and her family went on a swamp tour when we were there for Mardis Gras, and I realized when we met up again she had been at the Loupe's. So they are still going strong!

    Another family that posted was the "barefoot" family from Santa Cruz, CA. They had a dozen different instances of how the show was edited them to look silly. I remember the visiting mom asked if they have a coffee machine and they jumped to the main guy looking grim and silent. In reality, those people were big technophiles of every variety! The two boys had active blogs and the Buddhist dad had an active philosophy forum. But for some reason the show thought it was funnier to make them look like they lived without technology or shoes. The shoes part was real.

    A Bachelorette from Lorenzo's season posted a few times and a contestant from season 2 of Who Wants to be A Superhero has also posted.

    I remember that. He was quite funny.

    I watched it and wish it would come back. Amie was great when she posted.


    Loved the Air Traffic Controllers from TAR. They were great. Wish they would come back.

    One of the first shows I recapped was a dating show, it had four women working with dating coaches and they went out and had to find dates, etc. I believe it was canceled about halfway through the season. Anyway, some of the people on that show posted here and I pm'd with a lot of them as well.

    Also, LeAnn (I think that was her name) from Season 1 of Top Chef would post here occasionally as well.

    You mean Carmen Electra posted here? Whoa!

    I guess you could consider that a celebrity connection now. Stephenie Meyer and Carmen Electra... who woulda thunk?

    Whoops, I meant "lose." Stupid typos!

    I share the same opinion on both accounts! I loved the show actually. The DiSalvatores are one of my favorite winners ever.

    I didn't like them at first but they grew on me and I was glad they won.

    With all of these posts about PMs, that reminds me of something.

    Long ago, MTV had a show called Taquita & Kaui. It was a spin-off from Making the Band 3 and featured two rejects from the show (named in the title). It was canceled midway through the season, which was a shame because it was hilarious.

    Shortly after it was canceled, one of the show's "guest stars" (I guess that's what you would call them) PMed me. I think her name was Teresa or something. I made a comment in the show's thread that she came across as fake when she interacted with the girls. It could have been to play it up the the cameras, or it could have been the producers asking her to act crazy. I don't know, to me she was fake.

    But then I got an angry PM from her saying how she was genuninely herself and that she was not fake whatsoever. She also sent me another PM that directly followed the first one about a comment I made in the show's thread, about how I was sad the show was canceled. She said something like, "HA HA, your show is canceled now! Now you can't make fun of me anymore."

    I was angry since everything I see on TV is fair game. So I deleted the PMs. Now I think it's hilarious when I look back on it, and I regret deleting them cause now I can't look back at them and laugh.

    Watch her come back and PM me again.
