Just a small tip: If you’re shooting a reality TV show based around convincing people to go green that also happens to be on a network dedicated to green themes, you probably don’t want to grab a private jet during taping to get to your next location. Even worse, you probably don’t want to be taped ordering this private jet.

Alas, such is the case of what went down during a recent episode of Battleground Earth starring Tommy Lee and Ludacris. I haven’t actually seen the clip in question, but based on what I’ve read online, apparently Ludacris orders up a private jet to catch up to Tommy Lee (who left early from a previous contest in New Orleans.) The two then arrive at the same time to greet Gene Simmons in a cemetery for a little lesson on green burial.

Nice move, Luda.

Also, what’s up with all the GMC Yukons in this show? They’re probably hybrids — but how about throwing these guys into some more sustainable transport?

    Quite frankly I don’t like him or what he stands for. As one of my friends said (who is African American) they’d be better of picking Forrest Whitaker or someone black with BRAINS.
