Welcome to Reality TV Roundup -- a quick look at some of the reality TV-centric stories that have recently popped up across the fine, old Interwebs. Click away, my couch potato friends. But before you do...

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! One more time: SPOILER ALERT. If you watch any competition shows, the latest elimination for each show is probably revealed in the text below. The hope is that, if you missed this week's program and would rather clear out your DVR than watch the episode, you can get a quick hit here. But don't come crying to me if you find out something you didn't want to know. You've been warned. Also note: lots of non-competition reality info lurks below, too. 

COMPETITION REALITY SHOWS 
 
PROJECT RUNWAY 
It's the eco challenge, which results in some pretty awful "Project Runay" stuff. This shouldn't have been that hard, designers! Next week, you have to make something with Christmas decorations! Man up!
 
SURVIVOR
The "Survivor" dieters toss around muddy bags and plot against one another, which makes for lean bodies but dirty skin. 
 
Carter of "Survivor" tells HitFix about why he didn't step up into a leadership role and why he might have been better off playing a "stone cold" game. Regrets, he's had a few.
 
THE AMAZING RACE
 
TOP CHEF: SEATTLE
 
THE X FACTOR
The singers of "The X Factor" perform a song affiliated with a soft drink. Maybe it's better you read about it than watch it. 
 
We're not sure which is worse; that two singers are knocked off "The X Factor" or that Ke$ha performs. 
 
 
THE VOICE
 
You want some top six results for "The Voice"? Well, they're here. So there. 
 
 
 
NON-COMPETITION REALITY TV SHOWS
 
THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS
Yolanda is realizing, oh crap, these "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" women are nuts. And why this took her more than ten minutes, we don't know. 
 
THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA
 
 
MISC.
 
 
J-WOWW and Snooki will host a "sweaty, drunken" NYE special. Aren't you glad that motherhood hasn't slowed Snooki down? 
 
 
Rihanna is going to star in a new reality TV show, "Styled to Rock." Maybe she'll put a bunch of people on a plane for seven days, give them lots of booze, promise to dress them up and then ignore them? 
 
 
Liane-bonin-starr-sm
Liane Bonin Starr is an author, screenwriter and former writer for EW.com. Her byline has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Variety and a lot of other places. Her last book was called "a scandalously catty, guilty pleasure" by Jane magazine. Expect the same from Starr Raving.
