For the Love of Whiskers
24 Jan, 2013
Now being in the infinite age of reality tv you may be asking yourself what other shows can producers put on the screen. I can now say that I have found yet another, although it’s been around two seasons. My most recent find is an amazing reality tv show full of dramatic backstabbing competition; and no, I don’t mean The Real Housewives.
IFC‘s Whisker Wars, a reality tv show produced by Thom Beers, focuses on the ferocious and competitive world of facial hair growing. Interested?
Season 1 just recently released on Netflix and as Season 2 is wrapping up, Whisker Wars has gained quite a following. In Season 1 main squeeze Jack Passion (recently booed on stage in Season 2 and also accredited in the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival documentary Mansome) and other participants, including my friend and co-worker Myk O’Connor, compete to steal back the World Championship title from victorious Germany. Failing to win back the title as Team USA, Season 2 brings fierce competition as every man is in it to win it, completely alone.
Full of dramatic double-crossing and egotistical men, IFC’s Whisker Wars is certainly a must see reality show.
Check it out and be sure to catch my friend Myk O’Connor!
