As hosts of a podcast about reality television that makes no revenue (yet….looking at you sponsors…) you can imagine that we are not at the front lines when it comes to charity work. When we found out about Reality Rally, we wanted to attend because of the large amounts of reality stars and thought “we can get some good exposure here”. At the end of the day we got not only good exposure but new good friends and a new respect for what charity can be. When most people think of charity they think of running a marathon (something these out of shape podcasters could never do) or of the junk mail you get every day asking for your cash that inevitably ends up in the recycle bin. Reality Rally changed our lives because it showed us that charity can have a light-hearted and fun side. Everyone at Reality Rally was so helpful and in such great spirits that it was infectious! What we were met with at Reality Rally was a wonderful group of stars and volunteers all working towards the same goal and having fun doing so and everyone had to entire weekend to enjoy the experience. This isn’t your typical charity event. Everyone’s passion for Michelle’s Place shined as you could see how every detail for an entire weekend was planned out and the amount of respect everyone had for the cause and eachother. Since our trip to Reality Rally, Allison has attended multiple “Say No To Drugs” races and even participated in one of their 5k runs (though she doesn’t want to reveal her time out of embarrassment). All proceeds of Reality Rally go to Michelle’s Place, a breast cancer research foundation. While we never personally have had much experience with breast cancer in our lives (thank goodness we are lucky) the more we learned then more aware we became and since Allison is female (duh) this awareness could be life saving one day. Breast cancer can hit anyone at any age and research and awareness is critical. Reality Rally sparked in us the spirit of fun charity and showed us that every single one of us is a Survivor in our own right and every volunteer and every small action matters.
If you haven’t checked out the reality rally website, please do so! It is an awesome event for a great cause. This is all in support of Michelle’s Place which supports breast cancer research. Check out Kalia’s PSA for the event!

This is the most fan centric event we have found and it really is a super unique experience. Don’t believe me? I’ll let Gillian tell you
Seriously, I kid you not, mark your calendars because you will regret it if you miss this wonderful charity weekend.
Allison and Bryan let you in on what went on for them at this weekend’s Reality Rally. It was a good time had over a 3 days. Running around with, and trying to keep up with reality tv stars is harder than you’d think, but they’re also all such nice people that it makes the tiredness all worth it! All proceeds went to Michelle’s Place to help fun breast cancer research.
On the final day of the Reality Rally there was a morning breakfast send off. We got the chance to talk to Gillian Larson from Survivor: Gabon and the creator of the weekends Reality Rally festivities.

We get a chance to talk to Bea from Solitary 4.0 while she and several other racers sign autographs for fans. After that, see some of the fun that the teams got up to on the race running all around Temecula CA. You’ll see Ragan from Big Brother worn out but chipper mid-race and we then hear from Mark, Bill & Mark from the Amazing Race about their experiences. All proceeds went to Michelle’s Place to help fund breast cancer research.
We got the chance to talk to some reality celebrities at the Reality Rally Celebrity Cocktail Mixer. We talked about what they thought about the event as well as what they were doing for the race the next day. All proceeds went to Michelle’s Place to help fund breast cancer research.
