Jake contacted about BONRS; Kyle and Lori are back together; Frankie does an interview with Prick Magazine

Here's some interesting fodder for the weekend. I got an email from a former castmember who was approached to do Battle of the Network Reality Stars, the show we mentioned the other day that will appear on Bravo. Well, the castmember (link) actually let us in on the show's secrets. Most importantly, he said he wouldn't be appearing on the show because of the fact that the show's title becomes BONeRS when condensed.

Anyway, here's the information:

  • The show is slated to be filmed at Pepperdine University in Malibu from June 2 to June 11.

  • There will be six teams consisting of six team members.

  • Three events are held each day and everyone participates in at least six of the eight days.

  • Challenges will include a tandem bike race, a relay race, a kayak race, a swimming relay, a ping pong competition, an obstacle course and more.

  • Everyone takes home $3,000 just for coming. The winning team receives $10,000 each, or $60,000 as a whole
  • .

    Here's another big item: I'm getting word that a Real World power couple who were on the rocks for sometime have just recently got together. Kyle (Chicago) and Lori (Back to New York) are back together according to one insider.

    Here's an article on Frankie (San Diego) from Prick Magazine.

    And if those previews of Derrick (Extreme) hasn't gotten you all riled up, I'm hearing that this next episode will be good, so don't miss it. Derrick apparently gets stiches as a result of his fight.

    Cara is not the Playmate of the Year 2005

    Although Cara (South Pacific) was Miss November 2004, she did not make the status of Playmate of the Year 2005. She is in the June issue of Playboy (p.12 photos 3&7). Be sure to check her out.

    I got an email about the Battle of the Reality TV Stars that Bravo is intending to air pretty soon. Nothing real concrete, but various Real World and Road Rules alumni are being approached to appear on the show. The show is slated to be taking place at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and will air in August 2005. Other reality show personalities invited? Omarosa from the Apprentice and Richard Hatch from Survivor.

    The latest Pit Stop in the Amazing Race was the site of the Battle of the Sexes; Coral, Mike, Melissa spotted doing a photo shoot

    For those of you who are Amazing Race fans and caught the finale last night, you might have recognized the 11th pit stop in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Why is this Real World/Road Rules news? Because that hotel and villa was the site of Battle of the Sexes I. That's right, the Race had the Round Hill Resort as their pit stop for the 2nd to last leg of the race.

    Also, I'm getting emails from several different people saying that they saw Coral (Back to New York), Mike (Back to New York) and Melissa (New Orleans) on Hollywood Blvd. doing a photo shoot. It's unclear what it was for, but it appears not to be directly related with the shows. More info to come on this soon.

    Also, here are several different articles on the Austin season:
