Inside track: Emmys race for best reality TV host

June 20, 2010 |  8:17 am

Tyra Banks, "America's Next Top Model"
Tom Bergeron, "Dancing With the Stars"
Phil Keoghan, "The Amazing Race"
Heidi Klum, "Project Runway"
Padma Lakshmi, "Top Chef"
Drew Pinsky, "Celebrity Rehab"
Jeff Probst, "Survivor"
Joan Rivers, "How'd You Get So Rich?"
Ryan Seacrest, "American Idol"
William Shatner, "Shatner's Raw Nerve"
Donald Trump, "Celebrity Apprentice"

SPOTLIGHT: Jeff Probst is a true "Survivor," having won both years of this category's existence. Three other contenders received repeat nominations and, thus, will probably return: Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum and Ryan Seacrest. That leaves two open spots.

Perez Hilton, "The Bad Girls Club Reunion"
Cat Deeley, "So You Think You Can Dance"
Cesar Milan, "Dog Whisperer"
Ty Pennington, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"
Tom Papa, "The Marriage Ref"

Chris Harrison, "The Bachelor"
Mario Lopez, "America's Best Dance Crew"
Marissa Jaret Winokur, "Dance Your Ass Off"
RuPaul Charles, "RuPaul's Drag Race"

It seems that Jeff Probst is in the running for being nominated for the third year in a row with a possible victory. How does he explain these continual nominations when he has publicly derided The Amazing Race for cosnsecutive wins and that the producers shoudl consider removing themselves from contention?

4 out of 5 of the nominees are completely obvious:
-Jeff Probst, "Survivor"
-Ryan Seacrest, "American Idol"
-Tom Bergeron, "Dancing with the Stars"
-Heidi Klum, "Project Runway"
For the 5th spot, I'd give it to one of 3 people:
-Cat Deeley, "So You Think You Can Dance"
-Tyra Banks, "America's Next Top Model"
-Donald Trump, "The Celebrity Apprentice"
Hmmm... I'll give the 5th spot to Cat.

Okay, so out of Jeff, Ryan, Tom, Heidi, and Cat, I think that Tom Bergeron will come out on top this year. He seemed like a better and more comfortable host with Brooke Burke, rather than Samantha Harris.

The fact that anyone thinks Perez Hilton has a shot at even being thought of for a nominations makes me queasier than eating an omelet made from rotten eggs and raw pork.

Why is Cat Deeley a longshot? She needs to be nominated and WIN this year! God knows she's everything Ryan Seacrest wasn't this year. Cat actually keeps the show moving, interacts beautifully with the contestants and judges, and always has a positive, selfless attitude.

Shatner should be in a different category, more like talk show! I love Joan Rivers, but they should create a different category for her and people like Kirstie Alley, Tori Spelling, Millionaire Matchmaker's Patti Stanger, and Clean House's Niecy Nash.
