Day 05 - A show you hate

Millionaire Matchmaker. I hate this show with the passion of a thousand fiery suns. If I had my way, I would never ever watch this show. Unfortunately my mother watches it, and sometimes in order to spend time with her, that means I watch it.

I don't even know where to begin. How about with the premise that if you pay this obnoxious chick enough money, she'll find you the person of your dreams? (And like, 49 times out of 50, it's a very boring looking guy who thinks he's hot because he's rich wanting a supermodel-looking woman. Please, spare me, your sports car does not make you any more attractive. And it wouldn't even bother me so much except usually these guys have really obnoxious personalities to go with it.)

The sexism in this show is beyond my comprehension. And half of it is the matchmaker's doing! I can't be bothered to remember her name, but there was one guy who sounded like he treated women the way I would want to be treated- he didn't understand why he should constantly be opening doors and trying to order for his date at a restaurant, he thought it seemed patronizing. I was like, "good for you, buddy." Then what's-her-face not only tells him this is completely incorrect, but goes on to say that any woman who felt that way is not the kind of woman anyone should be looking for, and was looking for someone to dominate like she was his mother rather than his girlfriend.

I thought my head was going to explode.

I. Hate. This. Show.
