NBC has given a episode order to the first primetime unscripted series from Ava DuVernay, the network announced Thursday. These notions manifest in each of us in different ways, but nowhere more striking than in the privacy of our own homes. Her voice is perfectly suited for this moment in time.
And not always in a good way. Over a decade later, star Evan Marriott is still apologizing for deceiving those women. Personality" was weird. With a premise that had one woman surrounded by 20 smiling men in metallic face masks, it was downright creepy.
The twist was that at the end of the season, she was then given the option to choose between her average-looking suitor and a more conventionally attractive man.

But when the contestants were deprived of sleep, shelter and food, the show devolved into bizarre survival competition. For every successful and groundbreaking reality television show "The Bachelor," "Survivor"there have been dozens of short-lived and long-forgotten imitators, some of which were truly bizarre.
