Twilight Spawns Its Own Reality Show in Forks, WA

December 22, 2009 at 8:39 AM | by | Comments (0)

First, life imitated art when The O.C. became the inspiration for a little reality show called Laguna Beach. Then, Desperate Housewives served as the basis for the original Real Housewives, and now it looks like The Twilight Saga may be spawning its own reality show too.

Once upon a time, Forks, WA was a sleepy little town in the middle of nowhere, but thanks to Stephanie Meyers, who set the Twilight books in Forks, the town has become the destination for fans of the franchise. There is even a documentary about the community called "Twilight in Forks," which will be released on DVD with "New Moon." So its no surprise that reality TV execs have come knockin' on Forks' door looking for the next big reality TV stars.

Fox's New Reality Show Can't Wait To Fire You

April 9, 2009 at 1:32 PM | by | Comment (1)

Dastardly opportunists. The Fox Network announced this week it would be scouting ailing businesses for its next reality show, "Someone's Gotta Go," a layoff-themed TV competition. Employees will go over the books and decide who deserves to lose his or her job, which may be more fair than having one boss decide, but talk about setting up a negative work atmosphere! At least the cameras will make it obvious that they're all being watched and found wanting. We suggest the unluckiest employee get out of town on one of these reality-themed trips:

'Survivor' Is Coming To A Theme Park Near You

April 2, 2009 at 9:43 AM | by | Comments (0)

If you’re more of an attraction person rather than a roller coaster person, then you’ll be interested in some new television based theme park offerings. CBS is bringing Survivor to three theme parks this summer, so you can do your best to outlast, outwit, and outplay with a hotdog and popcorn nearby.

Starting this May, park visitors will interact with actors who play the roles of previous show contestants, while dividing the audience participants into four tribes. There will be clips from the TV show, along with a series of challenges, all in order to crown a winner. Unfortunately, unlike the American Idol attraction, winning theme park Survivor won’t get you an accelerated chance to audition for the real deal. In fact, it sounds like all you win is pat on the back.

'Peak Season' To Look at the Sexy Side of the Whistler Slopes

Where: Whistler, BC, Canada
April 1, 2009 at 8:46 AM | by | Comments (0)

Who knew that when we visited Whistler in January, that a documentary covering the lives of twentysomethings who work at the ski resort was under way?

MTV Canada, CTV and Free Form Productions have announced a new "unscripted" documentary series called Peak Season which follows the "true-life drama" of kids coming of age in the site of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. In other words, think of it as The Real World Whistler, except it's Canadian.

In the spirit of hit MTV real-life series, the production gives viewers a distinct, behind-the-scenes look into a group of real people living in a real community. This time, it's the high drama found in the unique geography of this world-renowned tourist town, where young people from across the globe congregate to work while the rich and famous come to frolic. A lot happens in this resort playground as Whistler's youth struggle to find love, friendship and themselves.

Send along tips, rumors, gossip, locations and spoilers to our map editors, become a member and comment on the stories below, and add to the Jaunted-Flickr photo pool to get in on the fray. Enjoy.

It's been an amazing thirteen weeks of television, kids! Alliances have been created and then broken, teams have been burdened with vehicular mishaps and tough physical challenges...some teams grew closer, and some utterly dissolved. As Phil takes us through the edited clips of the past thirteen weeks, a tear came to our collective eyes here at Jaunted. Remember those teams from the first episode? We don't remember half these people...and they're on the opening credits each week. Oh Vipul and Arti, what's become of you?

Rob and Kimberly have bickered their way through the race, all the while dealing with some pretty rotten automotive karma. Still, they're in the top three, and one could argue that all the divisiveness propelled them to where they are now. That, and Rob's hot Salt-N-Pepa beard. Lyn and Karlyn have persevered to become the first all-female team in Amazing Race history (and what a glorious history it is), while Tyler's and James' competitive spirit, physical prowess and awesome grooming propelled them into the final three. But, only one team will win a million dollars and THE AMAZING RACE. Join us for the final jaunt after the jump!

When we last left our intrepid racers, they were bedded down with some Bedouins just off the Road to Marrakech...literally. The models, Tyler and James, are off first admiring the Moroccan sunrise and plotting the demise of DuKat. Rob and Kimberly bounce back from their flat tire, while Bama gets sweet, sweet karmic revenge on DuKat, who yielded them. Will Rob and Kimberly pull it together? Will Lyn and Karlyn sass their way through the rest of the race? Will Dustin and Kandice succumb to bad karma after their botched yield? Will Tyler and James finally get busy? Answers, and more snarky comments, after the jump!
