If you watched any of Kill Reality, then you probably knew what you were getting into with The Scorned. But unfortunately it seems like all the drama was on the behind-the-scenes show and little made it to the actual film, which ended up looking like a bigger-budget college film. There is a reason most of these people are reality stars: They just aren't actors. The only two people who showed any range were The Amazing Race's buffed up Reichen, who played straight almost convincingly, and Survivor's moptopped Ethan, who just landed the best role as a nearly incomprehensible crazy person. Did you catch the "witty" dialogue? "The keg has spoken." I love Rob C., so I expected a little better, but I got a Halloween trick instead of a treat. — AC

Question: I know it was total cheese, but I was addicted to Kill Reality and was looking forward to seeing Scorned. Did I miss the airing of the movie? I haven't seen a listing for it. If I did miss it, do you know if E! is planning on replaying it?
Answer: Sorry, but I needed a bath after reading this question. Really, Kill Reality? How disgustingly low-rent can you get? But in the spirit of accommodating all tastes, I'll pass on the news from E! that The Scorned will be screened as a Halloween-night special on October 31, following the final one-hour episode of Kill Reality. Watch and just try to keep from upchucking that Halloween candy. And yes, this is a poor substitute for The Simpsons' annual Halloween episode.

For former reality stars, competing for acting gigs is a kill-or-be- killed scenario. Survivor: Borneo's Jenna Lewis is determined to come out on top, so she was thrilled to land the lead role in the reality spoof movie The Scorned and its accompanying behind-the-scenes unscripted show, Kill Reality (Mondays at 10pm/ET on E!). The mother of twin girls had a brief glimpse of unwanted notoriety when a sex tape from her honeymoon got distributed last year, but when TVGuide.com gave her a ring she seemed to have recovered quickly from that (and her marriage) and is moving on.

Jon Dalton, better known as Jonny Fairplay, became one of the most notorious reality contestants ever when he lied on Survivor: Pearl Islands that his grandmother had died. It was an underhanded move that earned the disrespect of his fellow tribe mates, yet apparently helped him land a part in The Scorned. The upcoming movie's cast is filled with former reality stars looking to extend their 15 minutes of fame, and their behind-the-scenes antics were filmed for the new E! series Kill Reality (Mondays at 10 pm/ET). TVGuide.com called up Mr. Fairplay to find out what to expect on the show and to see how his grandma is doing.
