The Death of Reality TV?

Rock Star: INXS is a reality show on CBS where popular 90’s rock band INXS is looking for a new lead singer to replace Michael Hutchence who hung himself in a hotel room a while back. My guess he was doing something else (no not drugs) before he actually hung himself, but that’s a story for another time. They bring these singers into LA and have your standard run of the mill competition to name a new lead singer. I’ve never seen a minute of the show until last night when I was flipping around the channels and caught a peek at in on a rerun on VH1. First to set up the singers that are left had a competition where they were interviewed by Time Magazine. One of the guys (well call him Guy A) said something bad about anther one of the guys and he felt bad about it. I have no idea who the first guy is but the guy who may have killed reality TV is this guy, JD. You can see JD right here: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/rock_star/performers/jd/ JD has a lot of tattoos and on one forearm he has the word “HUMAN” tattooed from his elbow down to his wrist. On the other forearm he has “BEINGS” tattooed from his elbow down to his wrist. They are on the back part of his arms so if you were walking behind him you could read it. Okay that set up is to describe this scene that may have killed reality TV. Imagine they are sitting next to a pool after having some drinks just the two guys.

Guy A: When we were interviewed by Time Magazine today they asked me some questions that I felt bad about answering

JD: Yeah so what happened?

Guy A: Well they asked if I had any problems with any people who were living in the house and I said that JD can be pretty hard to live with.

JD: That’s nothing big so what?

Guy A: I don’t know I feel like such a Judas now.
(Here’s where it gets good)

JD: “Well you know we spend so much time in our lives”
*raises forearms in front of him so that the tattoo “Being” is on top of the “Human” tattoo*
“Being human” that things get in the way.”
*As he says “Being human” he moves his forearms ever so slightly for dramatic effect*
“And we should really spend more time as just”
*puts his two fist together so you can see both tattoos*
"human beings.”

Its easily one of the worst things I’ve ever seen on TV it was so corny and the tattoos of this on the guys forearms only made it only that much cheesier. I have no idea what number episode it was on but it was so off the unintentional comedy scale its scary. Swear to God I was smiling but it was so so bad.
