    Does anyone here ever watch these stupid reality type dating shows? I know my wife and I do. Not because we like them, but because they are...stupid.:biggrin1:
    Here's a few you may have heard of:
    1)Blind Date-This one really sucks because all throughout the date, the writers/producers of the show make these stupid cartoon bubbles that are supposed to be the people on the show's talking/thinking/etc. These are supposed to be funny, but alas, they aren't.

    2)Elimidate-This one is pretty crappy,too, but it's funnier because it's stupider than Blind Date. The premise goes like this: a guy or girl is paired with four "daters", either four guys or four girls. Every seven minutes or so in the show, the main guy/girl "eliminates"(hence the name of the show, Elimidate) one of the daters. The one at the end, of course, has "won".

    3)NeXt-This is by far the dumbest BUT funniest one of all.:biggrin1: This guy/girl is on this "field date" with five daters, who are on a bus. One at a time, the daters come out and do some activity with the main guy/girl. If the main guy/girl doesn't like that dater, he/she says, "next!" and the next dater comes off the bus. If the main guy/girl likes one of the daters, they will ask for a second date with them. Here's the twist of this show,though. Every minute the dater is on the date with the main guy/girl, they get one dollar. So, if they last, let's say, 45 minutes without getting nexted, they have 45 dollars. It may be confusing until you actually see the show.:biggrin1: What makes this show so laughable, though, is that they(the producers or whoever makes the decisions) pick the most airheaded, shallow, and dumbest friggen people to be on the show!:biggrin1: Still, my wife and I watch this show sometimes if we are bored.

    I watch this stuff almost nightly...in fact watching it now. Prefer blind date because i find the balooney stuff funny. elimidate depends on the people on the show. don't get "next" down here, but do watch something called "shipmates" ("blind date" on a cruise ship). also used to watch something called the 5th wheel. lots o laughs.

    Elimidate isn't even about a date, just about who will fuck at the end of the evening. Most of the time I think it's unwatchable but I can't look away, like a gory wreck.
