TVXOHOF, JUNE 2016 - THE KING AND QUEEN OF REALITY TELEVISION



Celebrating the League of Themselves for 2016 in the Television Crossover Hall of Fame, I wanted to also hew closely to the tradition of a double induction for June, the month of Gemini, the Twins.

And who better as people being themselves on TV to be the best representatives for TV "reality"?  It doesn't matter who.  I'm going with two people from reality TV: 

TRISTA REHN & RYAN SUTTER

From Wikipedia:
Trista:
Trista Nicole Sutter (née Rehn) (born October 28, 1972 in Indianapolis, Indiana) was the runner-up on season 1 of the ABC reality television show The Bachelor, before becoming the star of the first season of its companion show, The Bachelorette.

Trista has also appeared on ABC's Dancing with the Stars and NBC's Fear Factor.
  

Ryan:
Ryan Allen Sutter (born September 14, 1974) was the "winner" (final bachelor) chosen by Trista Rehn on the television show The Bachelorette. Sutter, a Colorado firefighter, and Rehn were married in a televised wedding on ABC on December 6, 2003. The miniseries was filmed at "The Lodge" luxury resort in Rancho Mirage, California. Prior to that, he was a star college football defensive back with the Colorado Buffaloes football team, and was eventually drafted by the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League in the 1998 Draft, but lasted only a couple of seasons as a professional football player mainly due to injuries.



So they met on 'The Bachelorette', had their wedding televised by ABC, and then continued their televised existence in other manifestations of "Reality" Television.

Welcome to the Television Crossover Hall of Fame, Trista & Ryan.  If this stretches out your fifteen minutes of fame, I think I'll still be able to sleep at night....
