Yes, this is my tirade on that show. It’s appalling to me that not only could someone conceive of this show, but there would actually be people willing to participate, and it would be such a popularly watched show.
I know those dating game and match up shows are entertaining and popular, but at least they have the virtue that they’re just a chance to meet someone. This marrying game is making a mockery of marriage. Now I’m not a militant traditionalist, but this just seems too much. “We’ll fly you out to participate in a contest and at the end you’ll be married to a complete stranger. YEA!!”
Don’t get me wrong - I’m not just against the women, but the men and the producers and the audience too. They should have called it “Lawsuits waiting to happen.”
I’ve been coming up with alternate premises following the format.
Who Wants To Marry…
A Street Bum?
A Crack Whore? (PurpleCrackWhore excepted)
A Wife Beater?
A Talk Show Host?
My Pet Hamster?
A Convicted Serial Killer? (That one would be very popular.)
A Rubber Doll?
A Can of Spam?
I feel much better now.
