Verne Troyer: Goldenstream

I didn’t know if The Surreal Life could top the Brigitte Nielsen/Flavor Flav hook up, but it seems they have. Courtesy of a urinating Mini Me.

Two-thirds of the way through Sunday’s 9 p.m. launch of “The Surreal Life” on VH1, Verne Troyer, the pint-size actor who plays Mini Me in the “Austin Powers” movies, urinates in the corner of a room. In a scene that will surely get critics arguing – again – that reality television marks the end of civilization, an inebriated Troyer rides a scooter, nude, into a room at the “Surreal Life” house and oblivious to his surroundings, relives his bladder.

Rounding out the cast is “rap star” Da Brat, Amercica’s First Next Top Model Adrianne Curry, Christopher Knight (Peter Brady), pro wrestler Joanie Laurer, model Marcus Schenkenberg and Jane Wiedlin from The Go-Go’s. Why anyone in their right mind would choose to do this show is beyond me.

  1. Oh my God! I CAN’T WAIT !!!! Thank God I have a TiVo.

  2. OK…civilized TV ended with the introduction of Dynasty (not that I did not love it, mind you), but this new craze of “reality” TV is just too much to take. I’ve never seen so many people so willing to humiliate themselves to achieve or extend their 15 minutes (and I do mean literally 15 minutes)of fame. What’s next Scott Peterson as The Bachelor.
