You know what I thought was a little odd...when Jay Mohr reacted to Brett...and said "Brett!!!!!" It all seemed a little staged to me...probably for ratings...Did anybody else think that also?
Fool... but no pity.
There's some truth to that. I was asking myself why he didn't just think she had a sudden bladder problem. Maybe it was dubbed?

Controversy makes reality tv, otherwise there wouldn't be such a craze about them now a days. Look at what we are doing right now, we're discussing controversy b/c it's what makes reality shows interesting and more popular.
I always wondered how much careers would change if there wasn't any controversy in reality tv. What if Clay Aiken came in first? What if Dat Phan lost to Dave Mordal early? What if John Stevens never even made the top 12? What if Latoya, Fantasia, and Jennifer were the top 3? What if Melana picked Adam and Larissa picked Brian? What if Dan Naturman made it to the house? Think about all of these and you'll know why controversy is very important for entertainment.

Actually, I would love Reality TV all the more if all those happened, well except for Average Joe, cause I would have picked the "hunk" too, and Dan N. Reality TV would still be popular. We'd all cheer for "The Divas" and talk about how great it is that America knows how to vote. We'd all be glad to have a really talented "Last Comic Standing".
For me, it's about the strategy and the relationships on shows like Survivor and Big Brother. On American Idol, I'm listening to the voices and rooting for my favorite. The 1st season was great even before the Tamyra "controversy". And there's not one show I think where tantrums make it a good show. Bad sportsmanship isn't part of any show. Bad comics or bad singers are funny in early rounds, and in a show like LCS the challenges are sometimes interesting to watch, but it is like BB where I like to watch the dynamics of the HG's and the conflict there rather than any voting contreversy or people throwing tantrums.
