Married at First Sight
Married at First Sight
The new season of this train wreck reality TV show is starting.
“Married At First Sight”, where four couples are chosen by three relationship experts to be married without ever meeting.
“Why”, you ask, “Do I watch a train wreck reality TV show?”
Because it is a train wreck reality TV show, why else?
I make no claim to having any class. My cable company does not, to my knowledge even carry PBS.
One of the things I love about this show is the three experts who sort through hundreds of applicants seeking to make perfect matches. They seem to have the theory that physical attraction is not important, nor are certain habits or behavior.
They believe they have a perfect match because both applicants think family is important, they like children and they both bathe at least once a week.
Well that sure narrows down the field!
The experts believe that any couple can grow to love each other if they learn to “Communicate” and don’t “Put up walls.”
How is that working for them?
They have in several seasons matched up about 20 couples. Five couples have stayed together. I don’t think a 25% rate is particularly impressive, especially for “Experts” matching up people who REALLY, REALLY want to be married!
I am not an expert, but I take one look at these couples and can tell instantly which ones will fail simply because there is no way they could have physical attraction. The experts think physical attraction is only superficial…OK, sometimes, but it is a damn good start.
I had a hunch this match with Captain Obvious wood not work.
One year the experts matched an obvious pot-head with someone who only admitted to being tolerant of the weed. It would not have taken much digging to find out this guy loved his weed, one look at his droopy eyes and both Mrs. C and I said,
“I hope she likes dope, cause this guy smokes A LOT!”
That match lasted about three weeks.
Last year the experts made the minor mistake of matching a gay man with a heterosexual woman. Talk about not having a physical attraction!
Once again, after the first episode, Mrs. C said, “Is it me, or is the guy gay?”
I wasn’t sure until the next week when the guy refused to kiss his new wife because it made him feel “hollow inside” …and his wife was very, very attractive! Surprise, that match ended in a divorce.
It should be an interesting season. So far, they have matched a five- foot nothing woman with a six-foot eight basketball player. It could work, but logistically there may be some issues.
Oh yeah one of the women is a 30-year-old virgin. What could go wrong?
