And a little model shall lead them?

So I wake up to my morning email, which is 105¬∫F, like everything else in my apartment, and find an item from online media industry rag Cynopsis saying that ‘the majority’ of the writers for America’s Next Top Toothpick n have signed with the WGA and walked off the show, demanding a union contract.

Now, I was not born on the turnip truck yesterday and I know all about the non-union TV ghetto, but it still surprises me that reality TV has been a force for so long and still, the producers haven’t succumbed. Could ANTM be the unionizing tipping point? Any of the reality TV writer crowd care to weigh in on this?
