Reality show with an, um, twist

here is the story

So, since we talked about that one female rider in canada once, I thought i'd share this here. So, should these guys win their lawsuit or not. I say they signed on to be on the stupid objectifying show and got what they deserved. Failure to read what you are signing is no excuse.

take care,

Jester

Yep, you got to be careful, besides they all picked her from a group. I really do not understand why people fall for these shows.

It sounds like a classic case of 6 men thinking with the wrong head!
Or...never judge a book by its cover.

I've not watched a single "reality-based" TV show since they've become all the rage.




However, I would watch this one!

You kidding? If they weren't thinking with "the wrong head," they wouldn't be men!

"Royal Marine commando, a ski instructor and an ex-lifeguard"

I can see why they're sueing. They're exactly the sort of men who would destroy you if you dared to question their sexuality. Big Girls Blouses they are, who've probably never experimented sexually in their lives.

I say big deal. If it looks talks, and walks like a girl, it's a girl.

The extra bit between the legs is secondary in this case, since they didn't get that far.

No, they shouldn't win the lawsuit, but they should be laughed at.

Sounds like it would be worth a look.


This reminds me of what some of my wife's coworkers said about "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy". They had never watched it because they thought it was about gay sex and attempting to "sway" straight men into trying it.

Are there any reality shows that don't have "twists"? I don't feel sorry for them.

That's hilarious.

They should take it with a grain (or shaker) of salt and laugh it off.

I wonder how many of them beat off at night thinking of her before they found out her "secret."
