    The Seven Circles of Reality Hell

    Not all reality television is garbage, much of it is much worse than garbage. Here's a breakdown of the severity of garbage-ness that Dante would be proud of.

    • Was this a "hair" show, or an art show? Seriously, how many people will not watch this show next season? I for one will not.............

      I must say that I did not enjoy the season and only watched it to the end to see who would finally take it all. Camila Alves is a boring host whose accent may be cute to some, but irritating to most. I was shocked that Brig was declared the winner!!!! She should have been eliminated when she made that three tiered pom-pom mess, but instead she comes back at the end with an entire collection of "do's" that had nothing to do with creating styles from the hair on the clients she was given. Instead, just stick everyones head in a bun (and not all neatly done) and slap on some plastic coated extensions and call it good. I understand the concept of having hairstyles be edgy and different, but what she did, in no way, showcased any real "styling" talent. I think the judges should have gone back and reviewed ALL the work done over the entire season and then come to a conclusion as to who the real "winner" was!!!!!! It wouldn't have been Brig. I will not watch this show when/if a next season comes up.moreless
    • Camila Alves is the worst host. Can she even speak english? she has the worst accent.

      This show has gone down hill and it starts with the host, camila Alves. She has the worst accent and an awful tone to her voice. Every time she talks I want to mute her out. It is very painful to watch. I know she is from a different country, but she really does not have tv presence. This show needs a more powerful, vibrant host. I'm sure there are many of you out there that will not watch next season if she is still on. As far as the hairstylist, what a bunch of babies. Some of them are so full of them selves, yet they couldn't do a simple color or cut. what???

      I rate this show a 1- 2 and that's being nice.moreless
    • yuck!

      What happened to Sheer Genius? The new 'host' is unwatchable - she is so stiff, cold, mono-tone. The contestants all look like they just woke up - still dressed from a weekend long rave. YUCK. I used to love this show. I really miss Jaclyn Smith. That woman oozed class. This whole season seems so trashy and classless. I have watched maybe 30 minutes total this season and plan on not watching again - unless they bring back the old format. I guess they wanted to 'freshen' up the show. If you ask me, they went to the extreme. PLEASE bring back Jaclyn!!moreless
    • Where did they find horrible new host?

      What happened to Jaclyn Smith? She was very classy - and you can understand her. This new gal isn't even pretty and you cannot understand her. In addition to no annunciation her tone is flat and she has no animation. Is/was she a model gone wrong? Doesn't seem to know anything about hair - although I don't think Jaclyn did either - but at least she could fake it. I am sure I am late in commenting - just saw that it was on again and watched it. Indian wedding episode - is this new host from India or is she Latin?moreless
    • What did they do to Shear Genius?!

      Where do I begin to describe how bad this season of Shear Genius is?! The new host, Carla, is terrible! She has no personality, no warmth, no charm and she's not expressive. She's no Jaclyn Smith that's for sure! One of the stylists commented about Carla's accent, she doesn't have an accent, she has a speech impediment. Her voice is very distracting. As for Jonathan – he doesn't give constructive criticism, he just criticizes to show that he can and there's nothing the stylists can do about it. He was so obnoxious on his show that viewers stopped watching – what possessed the producers to use him on this show? Kim Vo is his usual gay overly-smiling self. He was annoying on the previous seasons and he's annoying on this season. I guess one thing about SG didn't change. I won't be watching anymore. I wonder how long before Bravo pulls the plug on Shear Genius…moreless
