    I can just picture the guy in boxers sitting on the parents couch with a beater eating a huge bucket of KFC watching porno.

    I could totally do it for 1/2 million dollars.

    Hell, people have jobs where they are humiliated daily for a small salary.

    I think this show actually might be funny. I don't think they are mocking marriage at all as much as mocking the stupidity of reality dating shows and reality shows in general. If done right this show can be enjoyable.

    It's sort of a combination of Punked meats Joe Schmoe meets Trista's Wedding.

    It doesn't even sound like fun. I'm glad there are so many more choices then this

    Well, this is definitely Joe Schmo meets Trista's Wedding, and it sounds hilarious. My fiance and I saw the promo last night for the first time and burst out laughing. We're Schmo Show fans, and like Schmo, this looks like a sharp parody of the reality-TV show genre (in this case, the Bachelor ones). Given how appalling the Bachelor and other dating shows are, I cannot wait to see a series that skewers them.

    For the same reason any person goes on a "reality" show: To be on TV and get her 15 minutes of fame.

    I also don't get why a guy would be okay with being cast as a fat, obnoxious slob that no family would want marrying their daughter.
    A guy would be okay with it for the same reason John Belushi was okay with being cast as Bluto in Animal House. It's an acting job--in this case, a good one.

    Ok. I'll say it..reality tv is diving.




    I don't want them to dive, I just think they are.
    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    How could Reality TV be "diving"? Reality TV has always been a bottom feeder--it never could get much lower.
