Update: What we’re watching next! The Challenge: Rivals, Big Brother & Love in the Wild

Happy Monday friends. We all know the only happy  thing about Mondays are the 8 pm start time of The Bachelorette (okay. that may be debatable). But since we are all a little disappointed with our girl Ashley and the constant blabbering about Bentley, I thought I should go ahead and dedicate myself to another show.

No worries (not that many of you would be that worried), but I will still be faithfully covering The Bachelorette but I am going to attempt to add a couple new shows to Secondary Embarrassment. Lord knows there is plenty of material out there – it simply came down to choosing.

Based on feedback – I am going to try these three shows: MTV’s The Challenge Rivals, CBS’s Big Brother and NBC’s Love in the Wild.

Wait this show is still on?

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve watched the Challenge but it was one of my most favorite shows before I made the switch to HD and lost track of MTV. Now that MTV is in HD, I’m going to try to get back to my 20-year-old TV viewing roots and get back into The Challenge. Hopefully there will still be some familiar faces in the cast of characters. I’m guessing yes since those people (like our friends on The Bachelor/Bachelorette) make a career out of that crap. I’ve DVR’ed the first episode so I can catch up in anticipation of the next episode. (Update: Judging from the 2 minutes I spent looking for pictures online, I can confirm that I recognize about 80% of the contestants. I guess it hasn’t been THAT long since I watched the Real World regularly. That or these people really need to get lives.)

I’ve never been a Big Brother fan but multiple readers have said I need to check it out. So that’s what we’re gonna do. I’m hoping to drag Drew into this one although since this one is on multiple nights a week,  I’m not sure if I’ll be able to. We’ll see when it starts on July 7th.

Last but not least, I’m committing to seeing what this Love in the Wild is all about. I am guessing it will be a mix of  The Bachelor/Bachelorette rain forest/rappelling/jungle dates and Bachelor Pad/Paradise Hotel. We’ll see on June 29th when it kicks off. Here’s a preview of what we’re in store for. Love in the Wild – Preview: Welcome to the Jungle – Video – NBC.com.

I just noticed that by committing to these shows, I have all the major networks covered with the exception of FOX. This is me officially putting them on notice to bring back Paradise Hotel and/or Temptation Island. I’m watching you Rupert Murdoch.

I hope you all are prepared for tonight’s Most Vomit-Inducing Episode Ever of The Bachelorette (how’s that hyperbole Chris Harrison!).

Until then… stay tuned.
