    David Jacoby

    The Grantland Reality Fantasy League column covers a huge swath of the intellectually barren reality TV landscape, but there has always been one format, one group of alcopsychoholics, one host, one show that stood head, shoulders, and genitalia above...

    David Jacoby

    I tried hard to get into Couples Therapy and do a deep dive into the dynamics of the duos for this week's GRTFL, but halfway through the second episode, a weird thing happened: I realized I didn't care about any of these people. No way wou...

  4. Grantland Reality TV Fantasy League: All About TEASOP

    David Jacoby

    Since I'm not particularly passionate about any show that's on the air at the moment, there's no true anchor for the GRTFL mega-yacht right now. So this week's column will hop around the reality TV landscape, looking at a selecti...

    David Jacoby

    I can't lie, the first week without Bachelor in Paradise was tough. No Khaki Chris Harrison, no vandy handys, no AshLeeeeeeeeee, no talking raccoons, none of the delicious delusion that made this summer so special. All good, though...

    David Jacoby

    Good news! We may have sipped our last cocktail on the secluded beach/prison of Bachelor in Paradise for this season, but we have not seen the last act of show-sanctioned ocean coitus - this brilliant piece of important art has been renewed...

  7. Grantland Reality TV Fantasy League: Y.O.P.O.

    David Jacoby

    Even with two love triangles, a talking turtle, and a vandy handy, Bachelor in Paradise felt a little flat this week. But fear not! I ventured off BiP's coitus coast on the glorious Ohana yacht with the Below Deck crew, then settled in Beve...

    After watching so many reality shows over so many years, this was the week I finally found love: I'm in love with Bachelor in Paradise. Over the last few days, Farmer Chris was confirmed as the next Bachelor, J.A. Adande continued live dating o...

    David Jacoby

    The key to savoring the brilliance of Bachelor in Paradise is to recognize and appreciate the delusion that's running rampant all over BIP's secluded Mexican sex den headquarters. None of the people on this show share the objective reality...

  10. Grantland Reality TV Fantasy League: Nearing the Naked Network

    David Jacoby

    This week of reality TV was dominated by the introduction of Bachelor in Paradise, a show so lowest common denominatory that we at Grantland were compelled to give it the full Shootaround treatment. ABC's new psychotic sexfest in seclusion wasn&...

    Flying legs. Handcuffs. Bloodbaths. Bottle shots. Pageant gangsters. Boners. Sirens. Death threats. Gun shot, gun shot, air horn, gun shot, siren, gun shot, air horn, gun shot, gun shot. WHAT A FUCKING WEEK! With the stupid The Bachelorette...

    David Jacoby

    Here's a novel concept: If a reality TV show airs a two-hour episode built around the idea of show-sanctioned coitus, IT SHOULD ACTUALLY FEATURE THE SHOW-SANCTIONED COITUS. Once only three suitors remain, every season of The Bachelorette boils d...
