The road rules/real world challenges are really fun to watch too. All the crazy personalities pent up in one place=entertainments.
Did you watch last week's episode? The Inferno preview? Yowza, looks good.
I've been watching the Apprentice too. I like it.
As for the Littlest Groom, I dunno, I think it's good for people who are "different" to get exposure as long as it's not done in a condescending way. The more we see people like that the less we'll whip our heads around every time they pass us in public.
