BINGE WATCH. Naomi Kempcke watches the TV show “Dynasty” during her free period with Ayla Rivers talking to her about it.

In a world that is all-consuming and overwhelming, some individuals find solace in television, and senior Naomi Kempcke is no exception.

While many may know Kempcke by her performance on the basketball court, a lesser-known hobby of hers is watching TV shows that show a life beyond the ordinary. One of her favorite pastimes is discovering new shows to watch, such as most recently, Dynasty.

Kempcke’s TV show ritual is a casual escape into the complex narratives that define shows like Dynasty. With a passion for the unpredictable and chaotic, she immerses herself in the dramatic saga with the protagonist, Fallon, whom she describes as bold and fearless with a captivating personality. The allure lies in the intricacies of the plot—a tale of power, wealth, and the pursuit of building a dynasty.

Kempcke revealed that she is committed to two TV show episodes daily. The COVID era marked a turning point, leading her to discover a newfound appreciation for the intricate and complicated narratives that reality TV offers.

I started with Too Hot to Handle, Love is Blind, and other reality TV shows during COVID.

“I started with Too Hot to Handle, Love is Blind, and other reality TV shows during COVID,” Kempcke said.

Kempcke’s love for TV extends beyond her personal viewing habits; she enjoys sharing her favorite shows with friends. From getting them into watching a few episodes of Dynasty to exploring other series together, Kempcke sees television as a communal experience—a source of shared laughter and enjoyment, especially with Ayla Rivers and Julia Taylor.

“I got Ayla hooked on Dynasty, and [talk about] Love is Blind with Jules,” she said.

Kempcke’s journey into the world of TV shows is a testament to the interests that shape individuals beyond their public personas. Through the chaotic stories and larger-than-life characters, she finds a space to relax, connect with friends and explore the complexities that make each show a unique experience.
