Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Beginning as a series of sporadically telecast specials in 1999, the cable-TV lifestyle program Wild On... was seen with more frequency as the new millennium commenced. Hosted by the lovely Brooke Burke (the original emcee was E! Entertainment's all-purpose female reporter Jules Asner), the series transported its viewers to the hottest "fun" destinations in the world, from Miami to Milan. The program reached its apex in late 2002 with a contest (which more closely resembled a beauty pageant, bikinis and all) to replace the soon-to-be departing Burke. The results of this contests were revealed in a two-part special, airing August 27 and September 3, 2002. Though advertised as a "finale," this special served only to hold out the promise for scores of Wild On... episodes in the future.
