    TLC
    TLC's What Not To Wear is a spin off of What Not To Wear airing on BBC America. The reality show premise is simple: friends and family members nominate a candidate that they consider poorly dressed and ask the show to make over the "fashion victim." Fashion Police Stacy London and her partner, Clinton Kelly (or Wayne Scott Lukas in the first season) ambush the candidate and make them an offer-- they are given a $5000.00 budget for a new wardrobe, which they must purchase in New York City boutiques over the course of two days, but only on the condition that they allow Stacy & Clinton/ Wayne to critique, and in most cases throw out, their existing wardrobe. For grooming tips, hairdresser Nick Arrojio and makeup artist Carmindy help refine the candidate's look.moreless

    Bravo
    Top Chef's eleventh season travels to the "Birthplace of Jazz" where chefs will compete in challenges that take advantage of the local culture and produce, and the rich culinary landscape Louisiana.

    Top Chef: New Orleans begins with 19 chefs in contention for the title. This season, instead of a qualifying round, two contestants of the 19 are winners from the pre-season Padma's Picks web show, which had 10 local chefs compete in head-to-head challenges. Each round will have challenges exploring Louisiana and its different influences – both musical and cultural cuisine. Produce, proteins and industries unique the region will be featured; and guest judges who range from celebrities, musical giants and elite chefs will evaluate the chefs' dishes.

    Padma Lakshmi continues as host, along with returning head judge Tom Colicchio, and judges Gail Simmons, Emeril Lagasse, and Hugh Acheson. The Top Chef title includes a feature in Food & Wine magazine, the opportunity for the winner to showcase his or her skills at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Colorado, and $125,000 to help turn the winner's culinary dreams into reality. Top Chef is produced by Magical Elves Productions, whose Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serve as executive producers.

    Legends Of The Hidden Temple

    Legends Of The Hidden Temple

    Follow
    Nickelodeon (ended 1995)
    Legends of the Hidden Temple was a show that aired in mid-September 1993. Kirk Fogg, the host, would be introduced by Olmec, a large talking rock in the middle of the stage. Kirk Fogg would ask Olmec what legend they'd hear about that day, and Olmec would name a historical figure and an item used by them. (i.e. Galilleo's Cannonball, The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelley, the Lost Lion Tale of Little John, etc.) Kirk would then repeat what Olmec said and would then introduce the teams. ROUND 1: THE MOAT The Moat started off with all six teams (The Red Jaguars, Blue Barracudas, Green Monkies, Orange Iguanas, Purple Parrots and the Silver Snakes). Each team consisted of a boy and girl. The Moat was a small pool built into the stage. After the teams were introduced, Kirk Fogg (the first year) or Olmec (years 2 and 3) would tell the teams how to cross the moat. Sometimes it consisted of climbing across tire swings, paddling your way across and other creative ways. Falling into the water usually made the team go back to the starting line and try again. Once the first partner crossed, the second partner would usually cross the moat in the same manner. Once both partners got to the other side, they would hit their gong. (which was basically a small podium with a button that lit up and made a sound once the player hit it) The first four teams to hit their gongs would proceed to the Steps of Knowledge. The two other teams would be eliminated. ROUND 2: THE STEPS OF KNOWLEDGE The four teams leftwould be at the top of a roll-away staircase. Olmec would tell a brief story about how the Historical Figure came across and/or used the artifact that he mentioned at the beginning of the show,and after the story, Olmec would quiz the players on their memory of the story. If a team thought they knew the answer, they'd buzz in by stomping on an "ancient marking" in front of them. If they got the question right, they would move down a step. If they gave an incorrect response or took too long to answer, they would be excluded from answering the question and the other teams would get the chance to. Once a team got three correct answers, they'd move down to the bottom level of the stairs and move on to Round 3. Once two teams accomplished that, both would move on to the Temple Games. ROUND 3: THE TEMPLE GAMES The two remaining teams went on to the Temple Games. There were three temple games...one for the boys, one for the girls, and one for both. The first two would be played for half a pendant of life, and the third would be played for a full pendant. Each Temple Game required the players to do a physically challenging task, such as knocking down opponents statues, tossing a (fake) boulder to your teammate and having them catch it, and other things like that. Each Temple Game usually lasted for 60 seconds. Whichever team won or was further along in that time won the game and would recieve the pendant it was worth. If the game was a tie, both teams would get the pendant. At the end of the third Temple Game, whichever team had the most pendants went on to the fourth and final round. If both teams had the same amount of pendants, a tie-breaker question was asked and whichever team got it right went on to the Temple. No pendants could be won from a tie-breaking question. ROUND 4: THE TEMPLE This is probably the most exciting round of the game. The last remaining team would navigate Olmec's temple (which consisted of 12 rooms). Before they entered the Temple, Olmec would explain how to open the doors in all the rooms of the temple. However, there were at least two doors leading out of almost every room, and there was no telling which one would open once the objective to open the door was completed. The pendants of life earned in the temple games played a huge role in how the team could do in the temple. In three rooms, there were temple guards. If you went into a room with one, it would come out and grab the player. If the player had a full pendant handy, they could give it to the Temple Guard and the Temple Guard would back off. If the player did not have a full pendant, the Temple Guard would take them out of the Temple and their teammate would have to go in and finish the job. In one of the rooms was the artifact mentioned at the beginning of the show. If they grabbed it, all the doors to the Temple would unlock and any of the remaining Temple Guards would retreat. The team had 3 minutes to go in the temple, grab the artifact and come out. If the team had 1 1/2 pendants, the other half of a full pendant would usually be in a well hidden part of the Temple. Getting it would give the team an extra life and an invulnerability to temple guards and could only lose if time ran out. If the team got the artifact and came out of the temple, they would win the grand prize.moreless

    ABC (ended 2008)
    Fifth Season: The Mole 3.0 The Mole, the "smartest reality show ever," returned to ABC on June 2, 2008. This is the fifth run of the program and the first time the program has produced new content in over four years. The program returned with its third batch of regular, non-celebrity contestants who are trying to win up to $500,000 by avoiding the machinations of a saboteur in their midst. The show has a new host -- Jon Kelley (ex-anchor of Extra) and features new challenges, locations and an exciting new interactive element on the official website. Stone & Company (formerly Stone Stanley) continues to produce the series. The new season has been picked up for ten episodes, with twelve contestants. The return of the program was generally greeted warmly by both fans and critics. Unfortunately, the show fared extremely poorly in the ratings and will not be returning again. Past Seasons: Celebrity Mole: Yucatan Yucatan, Mexico was the home of the second celebrity edition of ABC's reality series, The Mole. Eight celebrities: six new and two returning from the previous celebrity edition are competing for a pot of $250,000, which can be earned by successfully completing challenges. One of the celebrities, however, is the mole, a double agent hired by the program to secretly sabotage the games. At the end of each episode, the celebrities take The Quiz - ten questions regarding the mole. This knowledge is important because the celebrity that scores the lowest on the quiz is executed and sent back to their previous show business existence immediately. The celebrity left standing at the end of the game that isn't the mole and scores the highest on the final quiz takes home all of the money in the pot. Can you figure out which celebrity is the mole? Celebrity Mole Yucatan won an Emmy in 2004 for Outstanding Achievement for Enhanced Television. "Celebrity Mole: Yucatan" came to an end and ABC declined to renew the series for a fifth season -- until 2008 (see above!) Check the guide to learn all about past seasons. Celebrity Mole: Hawaii - The first celebrity edition of the series. Anderson Cooper has left to pursue television news, so Ahmad Rashad, known for his work as the host of RealTV, takes over hosting duties. Seven celebrities come to Hawaii, where they face challenges designed to test their mettle and maybe even disprove traditional notions about celebrities. One of them, however, is the mole, a secret agent hired by ABC to try to secretly sabotage the games. Celebrity Mole: Hawaii ran in January and February 2003. Season Two: The Next Betrayal - A group of strangers, working together to earn up to $1 million, that in the end only one of them will win. One of these players is the mole, a double agent we hired, working for us against the other 13. At the end of each episode, the players take the quiz, ten questions about the mole. The quiz determines who stays and who goes because the player who scores the lowest on the quiz is executed and sent home immediately. Up to $1 million hinges on discovering who is the mole. - Anderson Cooper's introduction. The Next Betrayal began in September 2001, but after airing only three episodes, it was placed on "hiatus" by ABC. Its original broadcast run finally ended in August of 2002. Season One: A Saboteur - The first season of the program introduced viewers to this brilliant program, which was hailed by MENSA as the "smartest show on television." There were only ten players in this series, but as always, one winner and one mole. This edition ran in January and February 2001. On March 16th, 2004, cable/satellite's GSN (formerly Game Show Network) began showing repeats of The Mole. The fun began with "Celebrity Mole: Hawaii" and continued with the first season, "A Saboteur." Unfortunately, GSN did not continue airing the program. Instead, you may now catch repeats at various times (watch listings for special marathons and other airings) on FOX Reality.moreless

    The People's Court

    The People's Court

    Follow
    The People's Court - a throwback to 1950s syndicated courtroom fare such as Traffic Court and The Stand Accused - was set in a small-claims court. The litigants had both agreed to bring their grievances to a California small-claims court, where retired Superior Court Judge Joseph A. Wapner heard the cases. The plaintiffs could file a claim for up to $1,500, while the defendants sometimes filed a countersuit if they felt they were due compensation. While most cases were run-of-the-mill complaints over poor service, broken contracts, ownership rights and malfunctioning merchandise, others had odd twists. For instance: * The overweight stripper who was not paid because the bachelor party-goers thought she was unattractive. During the arguments, she reveals she had gone at the request of her friend, the bride-to-be who found out about the party. * The mother who refused to pay a clown after he came to a birthday party dressed as a towering purple monster (he was supposed to play a Smurf); the clown ended up terrifying the party-goers. * The woman who requested a male friend make good on a verbal contract to pay half of the cost of her daughter's abortion, when she thought he was the father. He had backed out when he was sterile. * A woman who sued the owner of a pitbull after he jumped on the hood of his car. The pitbull's owner claimed she struck the dog and requested payment for the dog's injuries; and even suspected the resulting damage to the car was from a prior accident. And the list of odd cases went on. Each litigant (who, as the announcer reminded viewers each day, were not actors) stated his case before Joseph A. Wapner . After he was through asking questions, he retreated to his chambers before rendering his decision. More than once, he refused to support either side. Each litigant was then interviewed by the courtroom reporter (originally Doug Llewelyn from 1981-1993); sometimes, he gave the results of how courtroom spectators would have decided the case. Usually two cases were heard per show, though some longer cases took up the entire 30 minutes. If time permitted, Wapner fielded questions from the gallery; or legal expert Harvey Levin gave advice on handling that episode's legal scenario (i.e., confronting a car dealer about a car suspected to be a lemon). Each episode ended with Llewelyn admonishing viewers with some variation of the age old advice: "When you get mad, don't take the law into your own hands ... take 'em to court!" The original version of The People's Court ran for 12 years. When The People's Court returned to syndicated TV in 1997, the show expanded to 60 minutes, with Judge Ed Koch (the former New York City mayor) now presiding. Koch lasted until 1999, when Judge Jerry Scheindlin took over in 1999. Judge Marilyn Milian has presided since 2001. The format of the revised The People's Court was essentially similar, except the small claim's court limit was upped to $5,000. Sometimes, the interviewers also asked spectators on-camera their thoughts of a case before the judge's verdict was announced.
