How DOES that rose get from the grower’s field to The Bachelor’s hand just in time for the all-important rose ceremony? What do people, like Tila Tequila, really keep in their storage lockers? And how deep does the “Beliebers” dedication to their main man run? Host Joel McHale and our investigative reporters will be working around the clock to get to the truth by probing, penetrating and thrusting themselves into any and all forbidden places, shady sources, and promising leads. The hot topics being covered in The Soup Investigates include:
The Journey of a Rose –
Correspondent Michael Kosta traces the dramatic path of one of reality TV’s most enduring symbols: the rose from The Bachelor. From a manure-caked greenhouse to its ultimate destination at a picturesque rental mansion in Agoura Hills – we follow a lone rose from humble beginnings, to its moment in the spotlight… to its bittersweet end as a stagehand scoops it out of a pool filter and tosses it in the trash.
Packed Full of Crap –
Recently, a former star of A&E’s Storage Wars sued the production for allegedly faking the results of the show’s reliably profitable dumpster diving excursions. And frankly, we were shocked – shocked that it took this long for people to realize it’s not all real. Our correspondent Sarah Tiana now goes inside to examine real-life storage space exposés – only to find out that in the real world, it’s just a lot of water-stained newspapers, long-forgotten lawn furniture, and old pornography. Lots and lots of old pornography. And to cap it all off, we’ll unveil the contents of a storage locker belonging to none other than Tila Tequila – a once-in-a-lifetime television event sure to burn its way into your memory, and also your soul.
Beliebe It… or Not? –
Canadian pop wunderkind Justin Bieber has made headlines for being late onstage, and – once he gets there – either vomiting or losing consciousness. Have any of these antics put a dent in tween girls’ adoration for Biebs? And just how deep does their dedication run? Our correspondent Eli Olsberg will sit down with a focus group of teenage Bieber fans, and – using the latest in age progression technology – proceed to educate, enlighten, and horrify them with a glimpse at the haunting visage of Bieber future.
