Seriously, what is up with reality shows and this whole need to try and conquer Japan? Or Asia I should say, since Miss New York can't tell Asians apart?
A while ago "America's Next Top Model" had its girls do a Japanese Campbell's soup commercial for a challenge (yes, I remember). And please, allow me to say that they made them look like freaks. What the hell is up with the whole pink on the eyes and cheek look? Is this the new Asian look?
Then, just a few weeks ago while I was catching up on my trashy television shows, I noticed that "New York Goes to Hollywood" did pretty much the same thing.
Of course, they just have to put her in a geisha wig, with a karate outfit. And seriously, when speaking about Koreans, New York said, "Is that the same as being Japanese, or, like, not at all?" Damn.
Oh, and we absolutely cannot overlook "G's to Gents'" episode 7 (scroll down to the video clip), where sushi was eaten off of a live human being, female at that. Is anyone else noticing this? Or to quote Will Ferrell in Zoolander, "I feel like I am taking crazy pills!"
Honestly, I am just so sick of reality shows always making contestants eat Japanese food, or do Japanese whatever, as a challenge. Please, find something new. We get it, it's weird. Ew. Raw fish. Need to spit this out. Japanese language. Weird, and hard. Bow. Bow. Bow. Why can't there be a commercial in German and make that the challenge? Go eat some snails, or guinea pigs. This whole getting Japanese people on the show (and of course none of them EVER speak English) and doing all kinds of Japanese crap is getting out of hand.
It's just pathetically old.
Stop obsessing over Japan. STOP IT!
