Ask The Swag Gal (July 8, 2009)

Posted by on Wed, July 8th, 2009 at 8:05 am

Hi Guys & Gals!

I hope everybody had a wonderful and safe holiday. I am definitely still feeling the effects of a fun-filled 4th!

Before we jump into today’s question I wanted to congratulate Tara G. of Upper Darby, PA who won the Mariah Carey Perfume Package Swagstakes! For everybody else, there are still many great Swagstakes you can enter, including our Celebrity Gift Package (which I wrote about last week) and the just-announced Incubus Ticket Swagstakes. And yes, TSG, most young ladies that I know would love the chance to get close to Brandon Boyd!

Let’s get to today’s question, which comes to us from Shelly McCabe in Chester, VA. She asked:

What is your favorite reality TV show?

Shelly, I am a HUGE fan of reality television. I’d have to say my favorite reality TV show is Real Housewives of New Jersey (the newest season and cast, for those of you who don’t watch!). Not only are they outspoken, dramatic and just non-stop entertaining, but they seem to be the most genuine of the Real Housewives casts. (This is not to say I couldn’t easily watch an entire season of Real Housewives of Orange County in one session–Talk about the opposite of genuine!)

Coming close in my number 2 spot is Project Runway. I could watch artists design clothes all day long and, of course, I love seeing the finished products! The “hissy fits” they throw don’t hurt either. Tim Gunn, one of the hosts and judges, is my favorite part of the show. He is hilarious and is a fashion genius- he always has spot-on things to say to the designers.

If I were to pick a third show, it’d have to be Top Chef. Though I normally don’t follow the entire season, I do happen to catch it on once and a while and get totally sucked in! I LOVE food and love watching the preparation and effort that goes into cooking it. I must admit, my mouth does begin to water and I find myself heading to the fridge for a snack quite often! A few weeks ago I actually had the opportunity to eat at Jax Fish House in Boulder, Colorado. The head chef there is one of the past winners of the show. I highly recommend going if you ever have the chance (and get the crispy ahi rolls!)

Looks like Bravo’s got my vote for best reality TV network. What are your favorite reality shows? Leave a comment and let us know. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Keep sending in your questions to and I’ll be back on Friday!

It’s a big week here in Swag Bucks Nation! I’m not much of a video game person (though I do have a soft-spot for the Wii) but even I have to admit that I’m impressed with all the new games in the Swag Store. Plus later today we’re going to be introducing a new feature ... Read More »

The Swag Gal Returns

It’s the first Wednesday of June, and The Swag Gal senses summer in the air! Of course, summer means different things for different people. For The Swag Guy, it seems that summer means old guys with funny beards, and gross burping habits. Do all guys like this stuff? Or is it just the 2 dimensional ... Read More »
