These were all very insightful replies, and I think I actually learned a little bit about the immigration climate in your country. Given what I've learned, why anyone would attempt to fly this particular flag in mainstream media - is beyond me. I don't think we have near the same types of issue that you do though. (Which is probably why I said I'd probably watch it before really knowing what I was talking about).
Would you watch if each participant was verified to be completely self-sufficient. Not neccesarily a millionaire or anything, but a hunky foreign bachelor who had a sizeable savings account and a good profession/income, like a doctor or something? Again just curious if it would make a difference... I wouldn't want to see anyone (immigrant or not) who would end up being a leech on the lady or the government.
I can see it being reeeeeally hard to know if he had actual feelings for the gal though, no matter his income or profession - the premise is still to get a VISA.
Hmmm... good discussion, thanks so much for your replies
And thanks, Nemeses, for your insight into the process - they certainly make it seem a whole lot easier huh?
