Allow me to nominate The Bachelor Pad as one of the most provocative prime-time shows on television.

So that’s how it is across the fruited plains as I still ripple with glee that the roster for this upcoming season 13 has been announced, one either loves or despises Dancing With the Stars.

Big Brother is a show about human nature and I understand that sadness and tears are part of human nature. But Big Brother is also a show about winning.

I reserve the right to change these predictions as time, challenges and hideousness require.

I could not, even with a gun held to my head, describe rhyme nor reason about how all of this is done, what exactly comprises a semi-finalist and frankly I'm not even sure there is a top ten of so-called finalists as it's all way over my head.

One might smile in bemusement that a Sussex County resident who writes a reality TV column for a large and happening Internet site proudly advertised as the purview for the swanky would have her life suddenly stopped, stalled, thwarted, debated, and otherwise set to turmoil over an event involving ... duh, a REALITY SHOW!

Frankly I've never seen more fishwife behavior than that presented by Vienna. Even when she's not interacting with a man, Vienna comes off as a spoiled brat.

I reserve, as always, the right to change my prediction as sudden rule changes and events warrant.

The designers, many of them spoiled drama queens, immediately began to gripe when told of their challenge for this episode. Nina didn't help with her long list of fashion designs that would not do. By the time she got done expounding on her list there did seem to be little left save perhaps muslin or raw cotton.

What Not to Wear effectively, but with kindness, forces the subject of the week to stop and look in that mirror and see themselves as the rest of us see them.

And through all this angst, by coincidence or script, Vienna and Jake keep ending up in proximity to each other as the gods of serendipity shine down upon them.

Brendon had once been evicted but with a new quirk in the rules he was allowed to be voted back on by the American public. Well, of course we would vote to bring Brendon back. He's handsome, good at the house contests, and with Rachel the Big Brother house comes to life.

Who can argue with a sandwich king as The Next Food Network Star?

We've had outfits made from materials that could only be purchased in a pet store and fine designs for models on stilts. All to test creativity, but we've also come to see into the psyche of the fashion design contenders. Sometimes, it's really ugly in there.

It's not for any lack of publicity or tease that Love in the Wild hasn't managed to grab an audience. Goodness knows there's enough reference to sex, not to mention females running about in tiny bikinis for no reason whatsoever...

August has been given a breath of fresh air with the premiere of The Bachelor Pad, that bastardization of Big Brother and The Bachelor that has it all: love, gossip, politics, laughs, snark, betrayal, and lots of tears.

This past week's Design Star challenge required the remaining contenders to form four teams of two each. Using, of all things, tea kettles as their guide, the contenders were to create a stellar kitchen from its inspiration.

Just as soon as a Head of Household wins the title there begins a political game to rival any congressional cloak room as the contenders bombard the HOH with pleas to join their coalition, deals to protect against eviction, whispers of evil about other contenders.

America's Got Talent goes from city to city seeking talent with an edge that will entertain, amuse, beguile, frighten or astound us. This effort and the subsequent "talent" presented in the early stages becomes living proof that Americans have entirely too much time on their hands.

My suggestion to all would-be chefs desirous of obtaining their own cooking show (The Next Food Network Star), becoming head chef of a swanky restaurant (Hell's Kitchen) or just taking home a quarter of a million bucks (MasterChef), for goodness sake, learn your risotto!

Ashley did make her choice this past Monday night and, God bless, I was right on my prediction. Speaking of rivers of tears for the most innocuous of things, goodness, Ashley surpassed even herself on this Final Rose drama.
