Why is noone talking about this? There have been some surprisingly good moments on this show.

Lots and lots of girls crying, is what I get more than anything else. Pulling for the child star with the enormous breasts, but not because of her breasts so much as she's not as annoying as the others. Gunn does a decent job, actually, even though he's pretty much going on Slither alone. He did write the DotD remake, though, so hats off to him for that.

I have been watching this as I make Christmas presents (sewing, embroidering, ...) and it is an ok show.

I mean, the final prize a part in Saw 6, so we can't expect the bestest of the bestest actresses out there trying out...

As they got rid of my most annoying one last week, I will say that I kinda want the local chick to win (the one from SD), pretty, talented to a level (not the best all the time but good) and not so full of herself and her technique as some of the others.

Upon further review, I think big boobs also has the most talent, and clearly the most experience. And while I'm here, I might as well throw up-her-own-booty-without-a-clue, 21 year-old "pretty face" under the bus. The other girl is decent, but I had to agree that she lacks creativity. Not that we really see anything they manage to do, natch.

Still sticking with big boobs. Cool

I agree that she has some great "real" moments, but I think she lacks a professional faculty for creativity and, from what I can tell anyway, the ability to build a scene. But she's got a lot of natural ability to "go there", no doubt about it.

Gee, a bunch of catty women competing to win a reality show contest. I can barely tell it apart from "Rock of Love Charm School."

That's why no one's discussing this.

All in all, the challenges surprised me if youw atched the show. Where other shows had challenges like "make Flava-Flav want to hump you" or "try to make Brett Michaels feel like he isn't washed up"... this show had them covered in bugs, swimming in blood, jumping out of warehouse windows, and learning their own fight choreography. Oh, and Gunn always gets a nice bath/seduction/lesbian hot-tub scene in there every now and then.

My favorite just got booted... but for all reasons i agree with. What does kill me is that the girl I hate the most clearly is the best choice for this genre of film. She is shallow and self centered, a pampered little conceited brat. But she is just cute enoguh, looks like a teen, and is willing to do most of the crap without complaining much... which is every directors dream package for horror i think.

if you are new to the show however, and looks sway your decisions heavily, look back to the first few episodes (you can find em all online). Kylah Kim? WOW! But coudln't act her way out of a wet paper bag. She was so bad (and so gorgeous) that she might even be boring starring in porn.

Spoilers ahead:

I think the girl who won did the best job on the last test, from what they let us see, anyway. I can't help but think that some of this is orchestrated somewhat ahead of time by the producers. Clearly, Big Boobs didn't really have the kind of figure they wanted, and she never dolled up.

It also got me thinking: if she's the lead in Saw VI, I'm hard pressed to recall a black woman really carrying this kind of popular franchise horror film before. Halle Barry was in Gothika, which I guess sort of qualifies, and then there was Sanaa Lathan in AvP. Naomie Harris from 28 Days was one of the leads but not THE lead. Alliyah in Queen of the Damned was the lead, but not really a "scream queen".

Anyway, it was more interesting than I expected and congrats to Tanedra.

I only caught the first episode, which I enjoyed, but if you liked the show, check out James Gunn's blog on Myspace. He did behind the scenes blogs for every episode, and talked about the judge's decision making process and everything. Pretty good stuff.

Ah, James Gunn.

He goes from being married to Jenna Fischer to this. Wow.
