Real & Chance’s Legend Hunters Is A Horrible Show
What do you do when you have two brothers who had several reality shows but have exhausted all other ideas? You give them another one! Perhaps trying to milk Real and Chance‘s “celebrity” to the last drop, VH1 recently debuted Real & Chance Legend Hunters a couple of weeks ago. The show’s premise is like an urban version of the Crocodile Hunter. Allow VH1 to further explain the wacky concept.
Man has always been fascinated with Nature’s Animal Tales. Some are real: the man-eating Catfish of the Kali River, the Mega Shark, Hogzilla, Super Crocs, and the Giant Squid. Some may be only myth: Bigfoot, the chupacabra, the Loch Ness Monster and the Yeti. But two men believe in the stories and they intend to find them all. Their names: Real and Chance. That’s right, Real and Chance: Lovers, horse-breeders, recording artists, Stallionaires. Neither of them are scientists, nor investigators. And despite their claims to the contrary, they’re no outdoorsmen either. They’re scared of bugs, bats, frogs and almost anything that slithers or crawls. They can’t take a fish off a hook because slimy things scare them. But they are believers and by the end of the show, they may even make believers out of you.
As if the show’s premise isn’t bad enough, actually watching the show is far more painful. Real and Chance were never intriguing to begin with, so watching a show centered around them chasing nature is a bit of a snooze. Sure, the brothers spew occasional funny lines. Aside from that, the show is just plain stupid. What made VH1 think people want to see Real and Chance on an adventure as they swim with sharks and scream at the silliest of things. Perhaps it’ll get better as the season progresses, but I just don’t have time to waste when there are a bunch of other good shows to watch on TV. This one is about as bad as New York Goes To Work. Don’t remember? Good.
But you may need to see it to believe it.
