What have I got myself into?

I don't know what's worse... The Bachelor or American Gladiators? I'm not sure if it's the Gladiators, the dialogue or the spandex that keeps me coming back, but I've got it set to Tivo and do my thang after it records. I am watching it now and I think my favorite Gladiator is the 'Ken' doll, Titan. He wears more makeup than Carmen Electra and Jenna Jamison combined and looks straight out of a Disney Cartoon (or whatever company makes the Incredibles).
I watch this show, shaking my head in disappointment but I am sure I am not the only one. I blog my addiction to poorly made reality shows with pride today, I am an American Gladiator fan!

Saul and I were pumped when we heard this show was coming back. As die-hard old school AG fans, we were freaking stoked. Turns out, it's old AG with water. And Hulk Hogan. Barf. I am not impressed, and really disappointed in the way the producers did nothing to improve or update the show. Although, I will admit, I LOVE LOVE LOVE watching the contestants run through the Eliminator and try desperately to climb up the reverse-escalator thing at the end. They're so exhausted at that point! That is something I will give the producers props for...insane amounts of cruelty.
