Hi all. I am new to reality tv shows, having cut my teeth on talk shows to begin with. I caught the finale of Mr Personality and a teaser preview for FLOM though, and I was hooked after that.
First of all,congratulations to all of you for making watching this kind of bizzare, highly commercialized, and glitzy programming 10 times more entertaining. I have been catching the posts after each episode of FLOM throughout the series, and I think I've recovered a few IQ points in the process.
I have to admit, I'm ashamed to watch this stuff. I certainly don't admit to anyone I know that I have a new reason to actually look forward to Mondays...
I think the reason I do is the reason some people watch Jerry Springer: to see relationships/lives that, however scripted, are undeniably much worse than their own. The same reason people rubberneck when driving past car wrecks. But you can bet I'll be watching FLOM 2. Probably Cupid as well.
And I'll be glued to the TV tonight. My money's on Paige, by the way. Rob'd be an even bigger idiot than I already figure he is to pass such an easy shot at the woman AND the million up.(Side note--does it suprise anyone else that Erin's lasted so long without a typecasted role, or indeed, any real definition of her personality?)
Happy watching, everyone. I can't wait for Caligirl's recap of this one.
