Let me admit right from the start that I have never seen this show until today. Let me also state unequivocally that I was desperate.
I like to work out on my elliptical machine and I need the stimulation of reality shows. I have seen a lot of films in the past and when the action slows down, so does my workout.
Therefore, certain reality shows are paced just right. However, these shows have to be of the tackier variety, never ever Survivor or TAR or even Fear Factor.
Blind Date is almost too annoying to work out with because the "sleaze factor" is so very high.
The premise is as follows: Men and women let themselves be screened and set up with partners for a blind date. The camera and sound person follows them around and we are the lucky voyeurs that get to see the results.
I have only seen two shows in this series and I think it's awful.
There was one imaginative segment called "The Friend's Zone" where the guy who is not moving in fast enough gets relegated to the black and white "Friend's Zone."
The majority of men are blatantly sexual. They put the moves on the women almost immediately with no finesse whatsoever. One guy licked his date's arm from inner wrist to elbow and kept insisting that she come home with him at the end of the date. He even grabbed a huge handful of her butt at the end. The women try to laugh it off but are embarrassed and rightfully so. It almost always end up where the women say "never again" and the guys remain clueless.
There are also those annoying "pop ups" that tell us what the individuals are thinking and what we should be thinking they're thinking. Don't get me started.
Last and least, the host's name is Roger Lodge. Oh please, do you have to insult us by leaving off the final 'r'?
