The torture never ends

I don’t know how they’re going to do it – I’m afraid to even think about it – but Fox is preparing another Joe Millionaire. Not that I’ll watch anyway, but I confess the speculation interests me.

One of NBC’s top priorities for this summer and next year is to develop a successful relationship-based reality series along the lines of Joe Millionaire and The Bachelor, he said.

Meanwhile, ABC announced Thursday it was preparing a fourth edition of The Bachelor that “has the heir to a well-known family, a Dynasty-like family,” ABC executive Susan Lyne said.

Fox is about to debut Married by America, a series based on the idea that it can marry off two longing-for-love people who had never met, In April, Fox presents Mr. Personality, a series that “explores how looks effect love,” said entertainment President Gail Berman.

Obviously, our interest in disposable celebrities has not yet peaked. Jason Alexander’s quote about fame comes to mind:

I once went to speak at a school, and there was a 16-year-old girl… And the girl says to me, ‘You know what? I don’t care what I do, I just want to be famous.’ And I thought, you know, I should really just shoot her in the head because it would serve two things: It would make her famous as the girl that Jason Alexander shot in the head, and it would, you know, spare the world of the banality of the rest of her life.

Indeed.
