OK, maybe I actually need to rethink this Jewish thing. The opening weekend's gross of Mel's Passion is obviously the first sign, and now tonight, courtesy of Mike Fleiss and the great Satan itself (a/k/a the Fox network) we now have Forever Eden. Not that there were any great expectations here, but why isn't this show still called Paradise Hotel. The only thing different is that the producers aren't making any pretense of the idea that they know where this will end, instead making the claim that this is a big experiment to have a show that never ends. Otherwise, it's the same show. Every event is still the most "shocking" yet, and we have the same overdramatic droning announcer to tell us so. The "host" is some hot british woman whose only distinguishing feature from the hot british woman who hosted Paradise Hotel is the brunette hair of the latter.
But most importantly, they still managed to find the dumbest people in America to argue with each other over absolutely nothing. Take Mary, the blonde from Scottsdale, Arizona who apparently has never seen black people before. She walks around like Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense with absolutely no understanding of the world around her. She even asked the one black male cast member, Michael, what was on his feet, except there was nothing on his feet. She meant his dark skin You see, she had never seen a black man's feet before. No ... I'm not kidding. Crying ... not kidding.
Then there's Jordan, the short neurotic New Yorker who wears his short-sleeve,pullover Polo shirt-collar up behind his neck like he's Andrew McCarthy in ... well ... just about any of his 1980s masterpieces. Then he shows his class by agreeing with Michael about Mary's comments being racist, but then letting us all know that he is so gracious that he "still might have sex with her." Luckily for us, the very same Michael, so offended by her ignorance about other races starts laughing, and says, "Right," then gives him a nice little macho buddy slap as if to say, "Hey bro ... let's hit that ass together!"
Nice!! Can't wait for tomorrow.
