    Why are there no women?

    I'm just curious, looking over this list, why there are no women on the show. Did they do it on purpose, or are there no women who hate their jobs?

    John, I wondered the same thing. I think that's odd.

    I think it's Spike going after their core audience, men. Apparently, who ever cast this show didn't realize they'd get more male viewers if at least one or two of the contestants was a hot woman.

    Wow...I think that is very odd that there is no women on this show.
    Maybe all the women were to busy working, to sign up.
    I never saw the sign up sheet or I would be the one woman on this show.
    Nevertheless, I'll watch it.

    Or the 2nd woman on the show.

    Like Mariner said, Spike's core audience is supposed to be men. They unveiled themselves initially as the first "network for men", although clearly they haven't been successful in conveying that to the general public.

    So in that sense, I'm not surprised that there are no women participants on the show--after all, no one questions why "Starting Over" has only women (although what man would want to live with that much estrogen in the house?).

    I do, however, think it is a stupid move. I agree with Mariner that they would probably get more male viewers if some comely ladies were cast--say, bored librarians who wish to become hot strippers?!!

    I can see it now. A Marian the Librarian type who starts out the first episode with a bun and quickly lets her hair loose and starts dancing around a pole. Now that would capture Spike's target audience.

    I guarentee the viewers would double under that scenario.
