飛黃騰達 (名人版)



名人效應梗系好野啦,否則不會今天每張報紙的頭條都有呀Edison出現,想不到我一向追捧的"飛黃騰達",也要來個名人篇來挽救收視。

Apprentice 一直是我喜歡追看的Reality 電視節目,而每一季的比賽,香港的明珠台亦一直有轉播。參賽者主要分開兩組,以商業形式般,做一個兩至三天的project來比賽,要鬥贏對方,在比賽的項目當中:sales, marketing, leadership,都要做得出色。 當然吸引人追看的元素,還有兩隊之間的爾虞我詐,戲劇化的競爭,隊員間的勾心鬥角等等,都是十分精彩。

由上一輯開始,比賽地點由紐約轉到洛杉磯,形式亦有所改變,輸了的一隊,除了有人會被炒魷之外,大懲罰還包括要全組人在屋外露宿,對一班本身也是business executive的參賽者來說,其實含不少的侮辱成份,我想是希望加入一些生存者之類的受歡迎元素吧。結果呢,當然是適得其反,節目遭人大罵之餘,收視率還跌至有史以來的新低點。

去年年中在明珠台播出第六季的最後一集,Donald Trump在挑選勝利者的時候,竟然揀了一位從未擔任過project manager的女孩,而放棄了滿腦子都是好idea的亞裔男子,完完全全叫人摸不著頭腦。和很多的FANS一樣,連我這個追了六輯的忠心粉絲,也覺得慘不忍睹,壽終正寢最為合宜。

不過世事無絕對,當我以為The Apprentice會被電視台大喊: “You are fired!” 的時候,新的一輯竟然又無聲無息地在年初登陸NBC。

新一輯節目以”名人”參賽作招徠,不過我覺得其實很多位都是半紅不黑的”奀星”而已,而且名氣不大,除了美國的觀眾外,並不太多人認識。不過看了NYT的報道,好像新一輯的反應不錯,成為NBC今年其中一個hit show,似乎名人效應真的能幫Donald Trump起死回生。

看了首兩集,比較吸引的名人,有前Kiss樂隊的主音Gene Simons,除了他的舌頭較一般人長之外,以乎還有很多connection。

其他的參賽者包括: 
影星Alex Baldwin…….的弟弟,Stephen Baldwin,
(多年前)電影劇Taxi的名星Marilu Hennar,
(前度)體育名星哥曼妮茲(wow!! 走晒樣),
(前度)拳王,
(前度)Playboy Playmate,
(前度) super model…
American got talent 的評判 Piers Morgan
還有在apprentice第一集中的討厭女人Omarosa等等(zzz…)。

首兩集由男子組對抗女子組,全由男子組勝出,原因很簡單,一隊善用他們的名人效應,另一隊似乎忘了他們參加這個遊戲叫celebrity apprentice, 只是默默地做好他們的project。 唉,真系唔輸都好難。

首兩集被炒魷的,有前度playmate同哥曼妮茲,雖我覺得兩次輸都不是她們的fault,但這節目的考慮便是要留低一些比較controversy的人物,所以炒一些無關痛癢的人物也是見怪不怪。Given美國的writer strike仍然未解決,似乎這類的reality show仍會是長做長有。

Gosh, is there still people watch this show?!! I know it's on now but I hardly heard anything about it. Yup, because of the writer's strike, a lot more reality shows are coming out. A new survivor (Fans vs Favs!!!) is coming out soon. (Usually survivor only on once a year starting in the Fall.)

That Omarosa, what a crazy woman. I can't believe the things she did in the first episode!!!
