    The Mike "Boogie" Connection

    Yes, folks... I read in this weeks Entertainment Weekly, that contestant Alex Bell works as a doorman at Belly. The casting crew "stumbled" upon him during an unofficial visit to the bar!

    Wow, the Survivor producers spend WAY too much time at Belly. Why even bother with anyone else these days?

    Exactly, John. If you wanna be on a reality tv show, better get to Belly, fast. :rolleyes

    I think it's terribly unfair to all the people who actually apply. Their apps are just discarded, and 'talent scouts' pick 'hot' people off the streets (or should I say Belly barstools). Ugh.

    Anyone who potentially hangs out with Mike Boogie is going to be on Jeffy's sh&t list pretty quick...

    here is an bit of the article.... it's page two, so there is more on reality tv in general...EW Online

    Of course, CBS' ''Survivor,'' the granddaddy of the current reality TV boom, isn't immune from temporary amnesia. The net failed to identify ''Survivor: Thailand'' winner Brian Heidik as a former soft-core porn star and is similarly cryptic about one contestant on this spring's ''Survivor: The Amazon.'' Turns out Los Angeles triathlete-trainer Alex Bell is a doorman at the same L.A. bar that's owned and operated by Mike ''Boogie'' Malin, a contestant from CBS' ''Big Brother 2'' (and the spot where Gabe Cade from ''Survivor: Marquesas'' also worked as a barkeep). A CBS spokeswoman claims the net learned of Heidik's acting career, under the name Dave Roth, only after production had begun and that a casting crew ''stumbled'' upon Bell during an unofficial visit to Malin's bar. Seems they didn't need the nationwide casting net on that day.

    This drives me insane.

    They ask for video applications if you want to be on the show.
    Thise are the peoplethey should be considering, not people they happen to stumble upon when out on the town.
    It's not fair to the people who take the time and trouble to record a tape and complete an application.

    Yes.
    Her brother and Booger are good friends apparently.

    So we have Mike himself, Gabe, Chiara, Sean Rector and now Alex that have some connection to either Belly or Booger himself.
