In case you're really bored and there's just nothing new to watch on tv tonight, you're in luck! The newest reality show to hit your screen starts tonight, with a grand prize of $50,000 for the champion. In case you're wondering what sort of fearless sportsmanship, indomitable spirit or idol qualities the contestants must exhibit to win, here's a description from A&E:
You probably played rock, paper, scissors when you were a kid, but we bet you never played it for $50,000. That's the big prize that awaits the winner in the Rock Paper Scissors Championship. Bud Light sponsored local competitions in bars throughout the country to find the best players, who advanced to the exciting national finals in Las Vegas. This special captures all the excitement of the sport, focusing on both the intensity and the insanity as players are eliminated and a victor is crowned. But this isn't just a blood sport, it's also high comedy as the program reveals the history of the game, the finer points of strategy and you the viewer can become a better rock paper scissors player.
Seriously, what will they think of next? Hop-scotch championships? Maybe tic-tac-toe? Someone point me to an audition, please. I think I've finally found my way to fame.
