America's Next Top Bottom

Reality TV has introduced a competitive element into almost every realm of human endeavor, from top models, top chefs, and top film-makers to Top Idols, top singers and top dancers. It was inevitable that someone would introduce competitive sex. In this case, the title tells you all you need to know. If you find it amusing, you’ll probably love the show. If not, not. Most of the audience seemed to find it hilarious. It follows the contest show format, with a lanky, trailer-trash drag queen hostess, Trina Sugg (Drew Droege), and several contestants who must participate in talent competitions including belching, diva impersonation, and arm-wrestling. The only top in the crowd is Butch, played by an unidentified female with an ineptly bound chest. The humor is mostly anatomical, with references to Boy Butter and lines like, “I started out as a tight end and then switched over to wide receiver.” The contestants are listed only pseudonymously in the program, but audience members get to vote on which one should be eliminated. The show was created by Michael Matthews, Jason Moyer, Efrain Schunior and the cast. Fridays, 10:30 p.m. Starts: Feb. 22. Continues through March 15, 2008
