    That is freaking ridiculous! I don't demand much of these shows since I understand their need to be profitable, but to call someone a fan who has never seen the show is downright immoral.

    I think they have been living under a rock not to have seen any of the show. Not sure I buy that

    According to the After Buzz people who did the interviews that was what they said to them. Not sure why those being interviewed would lie about it. Even though I love Survivor and have watched from Season 1 I have many friends who have never turned it on. I also love AR and there again my same friends have never watched an episode of that. I tell them they are missing out on two great shows, but they have no interest.

    Your reaction and mine was echoed by the people on After Buzz. Even Jerry who has played before mentioned someone (I think a family member) said every casting call this person who is a true fan who watches the show has always been first in line and never received a call back.

    Maybe, but how many seasons has this been on. Maybe they haven't seen a whole one- I guess they have no reason to lie, or do they?

    Maybe they were too embarrassed by their game play or lack thereof.

    I think they were especially upset because they called the season Fans vs. Favorites. If it was a regular season then I don't think it would bother people as much. If casting wants certain personalities to be on for show purposes then don't call it that making people believe these are all die hard fans like Cochran certainly was. I guess one of the commentators who is a true fan has been trying season after season to get on and another one who did, but now has given up. Along with the person Jerri Manthey (finally had to look it up) mentioned who has been first in line for several seasons for casting call.

    On the show Jerri called out Eddie, Reynolds and Shamu and she got the entire list from Sherri at some point. TBH I am not sure if Sherri herself did or did not watch the show. There were interviews they did after and I missed the one with Sherri or they took it down.

    Sherri said she was fan, maybe they lie to get on the show.

    I just watched a preview ... and I can't get past Margo Martindale as a KGB handler on "The Americans" ... and now as a sort of crude Mother to Will Arnett.

    I hope John's writing will improve it some.

    Good for him. I would never have read anything he did for Big Brother, a show I can't stand. Now, he's getting started in scripted tv and will hopefully build a reputation there as a writer.
