We can always count on FOX to deliver us continuous 'guilty pleasure', trash-style!
22 May 2002 | by (Providence, Rhode Island) – See all my reviews

Yes, FOX is up to no good again. If you thought the one-off reality 'events', "WHO WANTS TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE", "BOOT CAMP" and "LOVE CRUISE: THE MAIDEN VOYAGE" weren't trashy enough - wait till you see "CELEBRITY BOXING"!

A 'ratings extravaganza', six washed-up former celebrities are united to headline this sporting farce where they will couple off in pairs of three to box for cash. I kid you not. Former Patridge Boy, Danny Bonaduce battles it out with former Brady Boy, Barry Williams for title of 'Best career move for former child star of a 60's sitcom'. Bonaduce deals a few good blows and mops up the ring with Williams, claiming the title after three two minute rounds.

Next up is former "Diff'rent Strokes" idol, Todd Bridges who is up against Vanilla Ice, or Robert Van Winkle to be exact. One might expect the former 'Ice Ice Baby' star to take home the trophy in this round, but it is in fact Bridges who sends the MC Hammer wannabe packing.

Last but not least are media pariahs Paula Jones and Tonya Harding. What good would a celebrity boxing match be without a good cat-fight between two strapped-for-cash ladies? Harding plants a few shiners on Jones and halfway throughout the second round, Jones quits and Harding takes home the championship and title for 'Most embarrassing stunt pulled by a former Olympian for this week's rent check'.

Unfortunately, "CELEBRITY BOXING" does not end here. It is graciously followed by "CELEBRITY BOXING 2" in which we get to see not THREE couples, but FOUR battle it out to the death - Dustin Diamond, Olga Korbut, Dava Conger and Ron Palillo to name a few. I can't *WAIT*! Not.

I don't know exactly who deserved to take home the crown for winning their match, but FOX definitely deserves the award for 'Network to count on for producing trashy celebrity reality shows'! Well done!
