The Villain Edit: what people traditionally blame when they discover that their time on a reality show was spent being a huge jerk on camera. Also a podcast in which Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall talk about the reality shows they’ve been watching lately.

Totes Dyslex

All the reality shows are back! Well, probably not absolutely all of them. But The Amazing Race, Ink Master, and Project Runway have all made their 2017 debuts, and the Curse of Oak Island continues to do…whatever it is that show does. Monty and Rhias are here to catch you (and each other) up. There’s also a special bonus update on My Big Fat Fabulous Life, which has some drama you will want to hear about.

Going Off-Topic

Monty and Rhias momentarily ran out of interesting shows to talk about, because apparently television is too busy showing good shows instead. The nerve! So after wrapping up Ink Master: Angels and talking briefly about RuPaul’s Drag Race (coming back on January 25) and The Curse of Oak Island (they haven’t found anything) they talk about whatever comes to mind instead. It mostly involves movies.

Drag Race All-Star Rundown

Project Runway reached its finale, which kind of took forever. And the winner was a nice surprise, which is always…nice? That makes sense. And as the cycle of life is always turning, The Curse of Oak Island is back to its old tricks. Seriously, exactly the same tricks, where they dig holes and don’t find anything. So we spend most of the episode talking about the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, which is a lot of fun.

Another Win For Poopy Pants

Two episodes of Ink Master: Angels, which is proving to be a pretty fun show! Two episodes of Project Runway, which continues to be very professional! And one episode of American Beauty Star, and we were lucky to make it all the way through it. That is a terrible show. Also, we shared some preliminary thoughts on the Project Runway: All Stars 3 lineup and geeked out about the Templar swords on Forged in Fire.

Dumpster Fire at the Fabric Store

Two episodes of Project Runway contain a total of three eliminations. And another elimination that gets rescinded. Ink Master Angels goes to the biggest cowboy bar in the world, I think. And Halloween Wars…just isn’t very good.

The Tragic Wigs

Face Off: Game Face ends with a weird episode that was intended as the pilot before they made some changes. Monty and Rhias liked it more than the regular episodes. Halloween Wars is a weird show about a hyper-specific kind of pumpkin carving that somehow has a spinoff series with exactly the same title. And Ink Master: Angels manages to get rid of a lot of the annoying stuff about Ink Master, which was a delightful surprise.

Season Finale Week

The return of real television means that some of these garbage shows have to wrap things up. So Monty and Rhias get to talk about the live season finale of Ink Master and the (not-live) season finale of the Great Food Truck Race. Face Off: Game Face isn’t a season finale, but it’s got four Face Off champions going head-to-head. Face to face? Whatever. And Project Runway also happened!

Acetone on a Bald Cap

We are late, but we exist! That means we cover TWO episodes of Project Runway, in which someone gets home that we wanted to go home, and someone goes home that we didn’t. But both were pretty much justified.Ink Master and the Great Food Truck Race both limped toward the ends of their seasons, so we talked about spin-off shows like the Great Food Truck Rally and Ink Master: Redemption. And Face Off: Game Face had another fun episode of monster and alien makeup.

A Greener Thor

Project Runway goes to the top of the Empire State Building, but it still can’t escape the Twins’ shouting. Ink Master does what it always does, but at least it involves sending home someone we’re sick of. The Great Food Truck Race has a bad business day in Nashville. And Face Off: Game Face has George! We love George!

Something With Pecans

Project Runway takes inspiration from a new dance movie, but also from pretty much every “fancy dancer meets a hip hop dancer” movie ever. Ink Master packs so many different rounds of challenges into one episode that there’s almost no room left over for people to be jerks to each other. Face Off Game Face continues to be almost too pleasant to talk about, except that we like seeing Rick Baker every week so we’re going to keep talking about it anyway. And the Great Food Truck Race did something with pecans.

Game Face Truck Race

Project Runway has an unconventional materials team challenge with the entirely conventional result of making one of the designers melt down. The Great Food Truck Race somehow walks the line of having the most flamboyant, theatrical contestants also be the ones who are most businesslike and no-nonsense. Face Off: Game Face brings back some old favorites who are also current favorites. And Ink Master has some actually good tattoos across the board. Good for them!
