  1. Grantland Reality TV Fantasy League: Introducing a Real World Ang...

    David Jacoby

    The onset of the new year has brought plenty to GRTFL headquarters, including: bear-suit sex; hot lawyers; hamburger-grease assault; professional dog lovers; and a woman who transports herself exclusively by straddling men to hitch rides. The Bachelo...

    David Jacoby

    The Friday before Christmas week is no different here at GRTFL headquarters than it is at your office: We can't wait for what lies ahead. The next GRTFL column will be the annual GRTFLies Award Show, and the following column will feature not only The...

  3. My Social Media Victory of the Year: Hip-Hop Hashtags

    David Jacoby

    Now more than ever, pop culture is about the small stuff — an obscure TV show, a few notes in a pop song, a tweet. To celebrate a year of micro moments, every day a new Grantland writer will highlight one specific thing — a Big Little Thi...

    David Jacoby

    Huge column this week. We've got the annual "Bachelor Broads Breakdown" and the latest on Survivor as the show's finale looms. I knew it was going to be a great week for the GRTFL when I walked into my house and saw my wife watching a show called Aft...

    David Jacoby

    I. Can't. Take. It. There's. Too. Much. Reality. TV. Tremendousness. Seriously, I don't even know where to start. OK, that's a lie. I totally know where to start: When MTV drops its "Real World will never be the same ever forever, forever eve...

    David Jacoby

    Wait wait wait ... CLIFF ROBINSON IS GOING TO BE ON SURVIVOR? The Portland Trail Blazers' headband-wearing, 3-point shooting, weed-smoking Cliff Robinson? This Cliff Robinson? Actually, let me rephrase that: Cliff Robinson might be on S...

    David Jacoby

    Real World has stopped being polite and stopped being real. When news first broke via a super press release–y post on EW.com that the MTV show had adopted a new format for its upcoming season, it felt like hearing that Bruce Springsteen had bec...

    David Jacoby

    Finally, some reality TV worth discussing! Bravo gifted us with four premieres this week: Shahs of Sunset, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules, and Real Housewives of Atlanta, all of which mercifully added a little flair to the GRTFL's...

    David Jacoby

    The Internet is the best. Being old and dumb, I rarely discover the fun little corners of this vast web wasteland, but that changed last week when Juliet sent me a link about The Challenge cast leaking. The leak was posted on Vevmo, a forum site that...

    David Jacoby

    Things are just so bleak for the GRTFL. There's no Bachelor or Bachelorette in sight; MTV's Wednesday 10 p.m. slot, the most coveted of "10 spots," is currently occupied by Girl Code; and Bravo will air four hours of 2 Fast 2 Furious tonight. What ha...

    David Jacoby

    I was worried there wouldn't be enough meat on the GRTFL bone with only Survivor in the rotation, but I was wrong. This week, Survivor gave us Zen mountaintop yoga, hellish attacking insects, and the revelation that Brad "Not Daunte" Culpepper is a l...

    David Jacoby

    We're in crisis mode here at GRTFL headquarters. With only Survivor in the rotation, I'm in desperate need of some new shows about which to make tacky jokes. It's gotten so bad that last week Bill was all, "Yeah, I saw that your column was all about ...

    David Jacoby

    Good news: The Challenge is coming back! Bad news: There's nothing but shitty reality TV on right now. Full disclosure: I'm just vamping until the return of Grandma's favorite arranged marriage/divorce vehicle, The Bachelor, returns, but I need s...

  14. Grantland Reality TV Fantasy League: We Hope You Like Vomit

    David Jacoby

    This was a super weird week for reality TV. It was emotional, it was uncomfortable, and it was gross — but it was also enjoyable, kinda. On the Challenge finale, everyone puked; on Survivor, everyone cried; and on The Challenge's first (and lik...

    David Jacoby

    Survivor is back, which means we finally get to introduce some new blood into the GRTFL waters this week. (Don't worry, you'll get your Challenge scoring update, too.) Survivor: Blood vs. Water immediately gave us a hot doctor couple probably head...

    David Jacoby

    As summer stumbles out of the bar and fall saddles up, it brings with it chilly air, back-to-school bullshit, and some good ol' lowbrow television programming that may or may not merit GRTFL tracking. GRTFL stalwart Survivor washes ashore Wednesday a...
