“The Big Loser" is already the name of a reality TV series, but many other reality shows really do end up with big losers when actors seeking their fifteen minutes of fame in Hollywood are cancelled or disqualified from reality shows by the producers. Sometimes the losers on these shows come back to the set to stalk and threaten the cast and crew, or sit at home firing off libelous and slanderous internet blogs in an attempt to destroy the reputation of the shows, producers and cast.

Dallas Tanner, producer, creator, and director of "Destination X" an adventure reality show announced that their production company had to get restraining orders and file civil and criminal complaints against several members of the tv production who were cancelled off their reality show. Tanner claims that when he was directing and filming his show in Hawaii in December, several cancelled members who were kicked off the reality show and who did not make the cut to complete the reality series, threatened the producer, threatened cast members and even contacted a local violent gang in Hawaii attempting to extort the producers. According to the attorneys representing Tanner, several cast members attempted to extort and blackmail the producers of the show by threatening to ruin the reputation of Tanner and show by posting libelous and defamatory comments on internet blogs unless Tanner agreed to bring two of the cast members back on the show and pay them thousands of dollars.

According to Shapiro, unfortunately these threats and even the posting of defamatory internet blogs can lead to severe legal action being taken by producers to protect themselves, their cast and their reputations. Under the circumstances, such remedies for producers in the past have included obtaining restraining orders against the spurned actors and losers of the shows when they ignorantly break defamation and libel laws and sometimes even can be arrested for extortion and blackmail in certain cases. Shapiro feels his client Tanner's case is very solid, as they have uncovered evidence that spurned members went as far as breaking anti-terrorism laws when the disgruntled cast contacted a notorious gang to go and threaten the cast and crew while filming.

The producers are seeking damages in excess of $1.0 million from the scorned participants who were cancelled off the show and from an outside former associate and employee of the producers who violated libel and defamation law. Shapiro added that an additional party or two who did not work on the show, but acted outside of the production might be added to the restraining order, defamation lawsuit and criminal complaint pending an ongoing investigations. Shapiro's and his team is heading up on behalf of Tanner, a complete investigation and evidence is being turned over to both Superior court in Los Angeles as well as the Local District Attorney's office for further criminal prosecution.
