    Favourite Suitors who had no chance of making Top 10

    You know how when Lisa, Laura and Kimberly went to the 4 cities to pick 20 finalists?

    There were some real doozies there that had no shot with Lisa, but were entertaining nonetheless...

    Like the guy with the untouchable stick.

    Or Spike, the 48 year old gladiator.

    Or the guy who had his pictures ripped up and then did a handstand to defend himself.

    Who were your favourite losers from Cupid?

    Don't forget the recovering alcoholic, recovering gambler mailman.

    My favorite was the guy that claimed to be 48 but looked like a truly medieval gladiator fresh from an ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG.

    This was one of the few times that Laura's harsh comments were justified. The comment about the wrinkled knees were hilarous along with the Grandpa reference.

    Was that the guy from Miami who was a groundskeeper and brought a bunch of dandelions to give to Lisa? The host talked him out of it--the guy didn't even know they were weeds.

    I thought the selection process was very entertaining. Man, so many of those guys were losers....I'm glad I'm not dating.

    What about the guy who started breakdancing on cardboard he'd brought?
    Or the creepy dude who said he hadn't had a date since like 1982?
    Or the man who started off sounding nice but then began to talk about watching porn?
    And for the record, what's-his-name that did the freaky Cupid impression (hiding behind the chair and peeping out) made the finals but I still thought it was way weird.
    The selection shows were the most entertaining, the series has gone downhill from there.

    It was the groundskeeper guy who hadn't had a date since 1982--I had forgotten about that.

    I liked the format of the show as well as the selection process--although I think it went on a couple of episodes too many. I think 2 suitors should have been eliminated a couple of times. I liked the date formats--earning money on the street, buying clothes for Lisa, doing something with kids--it was different, entertaining, interesting to see the different choices, and provided much more information about the contestants than the usual fancy dinner/fantasy dates.

    Yeah, the format is really one of the best when it comes to reality dating shows.

    The only thing that needs to change for Cupid 2, if there is one, is not to have America as involved. I mean, occasionally, it'd be great for America to choose a couple of dates the suitors should go on...but they shouldn't be allowed to vote for who is right for Lisa or whoever else is in that spot...I kind of want it to be their decision, you know?

    I liked that too - I'm already weary of fantasy dates, yeah yeah yeah they're skiiing in Aspen who cares? Let's see some manure shoveling! (A fine Joe Millionaire moment.)

    My favorite reject was the drunk, gambling postman who came back for a second round of abuse. You had to hand it to him for being willing to face the shrews twice. Now that's gambling! (Or possibly the result of substance abuse. lol)

    Agreed. Maybe start the dating segment with 12...have America vote 2 off at a time until 4 contestants are left (that would be four dates)...then do a couple f dates where the bachelor/bachelorette does the elimination and makes the final selection.
