If you liked the Surreal Life reality show, where VH1 basically mimicked MTV’s The Real World, except with washed up celebrities, then you will love the Fame Game spin off. They took the most popular characters from the prior episodes and put them in house together again but this time they are facing challenges and eliminations based on their fame!
This show is simple they have two teams, the A List and the B List celebrities which was decided by the first few contests. Once the teams were decided then it was A List versus the B List. Although all the players are also facing off against each other also throughout the duration of the show.
B List celebs consist of Chyna Doll, Verne Troyer, Traci Bingham, Emmanuel Lewis and Bridgette Nielsen. The A Listers are Andrea Lowell, Ron Jeremy, Rob Van Winkle (Vanilla Ice), C.C. Deville, and Sandra “Pepa” Denton. Jordan Knight was in the first episode but left due to a death in the family, good riddance he is annoying anyway now we don’t have to put up with him.
I think that the cast is overall pretty good but I would have liked to see Corey Feldman, Dave Coulier, or Flavor Flav. They all were fun and interesting characters especially Corey Feldman if you can put up with his crying!
So what are these celebs vying for? Well $100,000 dollars is the grand prize and the chance to be the most famous washed up star. I think this show is great for people who were once famous stars many of them have had their careers revived. Look at Flavor Flav he had three seasons of reality shows with Strange Love and two seasons of The Flavor of Love.
I am not sure who to go for in the game, I personally like Van Winkle and Ron Jeremy, but I don’t know if they have what it takes to win the game. The show has already seen three celebs kicked off, Bridgette Nielsen, C.C. Deville, and Emmanuel Lewis in that order have lost the games and had to say good bye to their chance at the money. I wish that Traci Bingham would get booted she is a snobby, stuck-up, whiny, trick. She never wants to face elimination and always cries about how she isn’t ready and then once the others say they will go to the elimination round she says “I am sorry maybe I am being selfish”. You’re damn right you are being selfish, I would be so happy to see her go, I wouldn’t mind to see her and Ryan Star both get hit by a truck.
I also am not rooting for Verne Troyer he is always crying about something not being fair or someone being mean or some other crap. I don’t fall for the pity party man, just play the game and stop complaining.
I also want Andrea Lowell to stay on the show just because I like to see her and Ron Jeremy fighting. She hates him and cant stand his sexual jokes that he tells over and over, come on that is who Ron is you have to love the guy.
Rob is the best and probably my favorite on the show he is unpredictable and volatile he blows up and he isn’t afraid to tell anyone off! I love how he shut Bingham’s mouth and blew up on her for trying to protect the strippers he found on his bed. Rob doesn’t take crap from anyone and I think he might have the best shot at winning the game.
Pepa and Chyna doll I don’t really care for, Chyna is always acting stupid and not trying when she is in competitions. She deserves to be kicked off and Pepa is just boring she never does anything exciting on the show. These two should have been replaced with Flavor Flav and Corey Feldman, man the show would have killed with these two. Flavor would have bitch slapped Feldman and told him not to be a crying sissy. I also think that Flavor could have helped Feldman to act more like a man and not mope around all day crying on the phone with his wife.
It will be interesting to see what develops later on in the show and I can’t wait to see who wins. VH1 keep up with the celeb reality shows I personally love to see washed up stars doing stupid crap for money.
