• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"You're unconscious."
Sylvester Stallone, when asked what he'd tell a losing contestant on a boxing-based reality show

Reality series have their own Stock Phrases to be used when contestants are eliminated.

Examples of Elimination Catchphrase include:

 Clyde: This whole thing is stupid! You don't pick people you wanna be with by making it into a game!

Cartman: Ooooooo, somebody's a sore loser! Clyde, I believe I said, "Get the fudge out!" Which means, kiss mah fudgin' ass! Go fudge yourself! Fudge ya! Get the fudge out, Clyde!

  • Tough Enough: "You're not tough enough."
  • "You are not The Biggest Loser."
  • Top Shot "You have fired your last shot."
  • Platinum Hit: "Songwriting is hit-and-miss...and you missed."
  • Master Chef Australia: "Any one of you could be Australia's next Master Chef. But for one of you, the dream ends here." And when it's down to two, "Name and Name, it comes down to you two, and it comes down to the food you cooked.". Thankfully, the actual statement was fairly generic, usually, "Name, you're safe; you're still in the competition. Name, I'm sorry, it's now time for you to leave the Master Chef kitchen."
  • Design Star: "I'm sorry. We will not be producing your show."
  • The Sing Off: Some variation of "Now please raise your mics one final time for your swan song."
  • The Joe Schmo Show: Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. <Name>, you're dead to us.
    • In the second season, "Your neck is bare and so is your place in Austin's heart" for the women and "Your wick is cold and so is place in Piper's heart."
  • Worst Cooks in America: "Please turn in your apron."
  • Sweet Genius: "In that test, you were no sweet genius."
  • The Next Iron Chef: "You will not be the next Iron Chef."
  • Around the Horn: "You're the low man on the totem pole, any last words?"
  • Inverted in America's Next Top Model. Sometimes, Tyra would say this to the contestant when she gives out the photos:

 Tyra: "Congratulations. You're still in the running for becoming America's Next Top Model."

  • Inquizition: "This round's time has expired, Mr. ________, and so has yours. PLEASE LEAVE NOW!"
  • Canada's Worst Driver: "You are not Canada's Worst Driver." (Contestants are happy to hear this one.)
