NEW YORK – The Bachelor, The Rock and MTV in the harsh glare of The Foxlight.
How could the next edition of The Bachelor be even more humiliating for 24 of the 25 women? How about making it more like Fear Factor? Those who make the cut have to have a valid U.S. passport, and are being told the activities could expose them to "the risk of death, serious injury, illness or disease and/or property damage." They have to be willing to skydive, snow and water ski, ice skate and parasail. The Bachelor 2 will be taped from July through the end of the year.
The guy who directed The Rock in Scorpion King says there's no limit to how far headlock boy can go in Hollywood. The film was No. 1 again over the weekend, but Changing Lanes was No. 2 so there wasn't any real new competition. That all changes next week when Spider-Man should turn the Rock into gravel.
How popular is The Osbournes? Now other celebrities are starting to pitch MTV on their own inside stories. Sean Puffy Combs says, "Sign me up." He says he can be just as raw and uncensored as Ozzy. But will he show us the gun room? Probably not. P. "Duddy" wants cameras in his offices but not his home. Well that's not the idea. We want to see everything or nothing at all.
