Normally, I don’t watch reality TV, but I watched two shows for the first time this year. They are actually in their second seasons and I fail to see how they got renewed. But I guess everyone likes to watch a train wreck.These programs stood out as shows with characters that I just couldn’t connect with. There are many others but these two just did it for me.
Married at First Sight. This one also deserves an OMG And a what the??? Like, seriously? I thought the whole dating-thing was the FUN part in a relationship. My husband and I dated almost a year and believe me it’s a time of learning about each other. Even in arranged marriages the two know their future partner’s name. This is sort of a matchmaker experiment where the couples answer a 6 hour questionnaire and a psychologist, sexologist, and sociologist determine through the questionnaires, algorithms, and interviews who would be best together. No one knows how the other partner looks or their name until the wedding ceremony. Now these subjects are being followed for a year if they agree to stay married after a month. This is just another reality show. For more information go to: http://www.aetv.com/married-at-first-sight
Southern Charm gives Charleston, S.C. a bad name with some of the old family names gone bad. Fifty three year old, Tom Ravenel who has made 36 mil in 10 years with a history of drug abuse, jail time, and failed political history had an affair and unprotected sex with a 21 yr. old with a wild child history. She had supposedly had sex with three other men on the program. Of course, she gets pregnant and T-Rav doesn’t marry her. First smart thing he has ever done. The baby is adorable and is now walking. The rest of the cast are half T-Rav’s age except for the mother of Whitney Sudler-Smith who sits up in a gigantic mansion sipping Martinis and hiring butlers. The wealthy young cast seems to be part of a party scene where they have no purpose in life except going from party to party, drinking and partying. It’s like they don’t have a moral compass. Bottom Line, it’s a bad reality show soap opera. Too bad it’s in Charleston, S.C. For more information on this show go to www.bravotv.com/southern–charm
