I know I'm in the minority - but I find this show amusing. I don't think any of them have bad hearts or bad intentions - I just think they don't know any better. They are just living the life they know - although I realize it has become hugely magnified by the MTV experience (and ca$h). Unless the people they bring into their lives have been living under a rock, these hookups know what they are getting into, and I believe they are looking for some MTV exposure. Bragging rights - "I slept with the Situation" - or any of the other guidos may impress some people. (Am I just stating the obvious?) Of course I have my favorites, and skeezy Angelina isn't one of them.
I live in white-bread Utah, so these people and their antics are foreign to me, maybe that's why I'm amused and entertained by them.
