Krom, thanks for starting this thread. I am totally going to enjoy this show from MsFroggy's Snark gallery and boy does it just scream with snark materila from the get-go. I so hope it has enough ratings to keep it alive through it's eight week run. Thanks, Wiccan for doing the reseach. When I heard about this show last week, I did some quick googling on Mr. Philippoussis. It's not going to shock too many people that one tennis publication has already speculated that Mark's somewhat 'waning' career, especially after his injury and his attempted comeback could be a big reason, he is doing this show. The article I read said that Mark tried to get into a preliminary Wimbleton club tournament, but wasn't invited. They speculated that Mark might be hoping for the show to stirl up publicity and that might get his name back into curcuit talks!! Now, are we shocked??? Wouldn't be the first time a Bachelor on any of these dating shows, used the position for a little media attention.
Another article stated that he has a notorius history of dating much younger women (or should I say girls). Wiccan's article posted above, lists that his last girlfriend (and fiance) is a teenager! So, who here, thinks that those beautiful and fabulous 40 something " Cougars ( I almost spit out my drink the first time I heard the announcer call the 'older' women that! grrrr! ), will have about the same chance as I do making the cut at Wimbleton?? (Not likely!! ) It should be tons of fun to get some great laughs.
I was thinking when I saw the previews, that if this were the Bachelor, we'd be tearing those preview caps apart looking for clues, here, but I can't stop laughing long enough to tape and replay them!
I'm in this though, for a great summer passtime!!
