    OK – I will admit to watching ……….

    MKR

    Married at First Sight

    Bride and Prejudice

    I “flip thru” ………. with a smile …….the following ………

    Undressed

    Age Gap Love – (seen one you seen ’em all)  – all the same – almost …..

    Did watch for the very first time “Celebrity Jungle” when Kiera (ex. Bachelorette) went into the camp …….ugh – revolting!  Getting “stars” from behind “paintings’ – boxes behind were full of spiders – snakes – chilli’s etc. – hideous!  Not into that at all ……

    “Hunted” is really clever ……..

    “Celebrity Apprentice” – still to see …….

    Stick these shows between my favourites of  – Four Corners – Q. & A – Insight – Dateline etc.

    ……………….. never anything “not” to watch in the evenings –  when home ………. 🙂

    You have just reminded me that I have been forgetting to watch “Bride and Prejudice” Foxy. Saw the first few episodes and loved it. The episode where the gay guy told his homophobic parents that he was getting married had me in tears of empathy for him and anger for the parents. How could any mother disown her child in favour of religion? And the father who thinks his gorgeous son is “not a man” was showing himself up to be the most piss weak man of all men. I would love to have given them both a piece of my mind in real life. Great reality show.

      Robi – yes!  I was amazed that it was so “heart-wrenching” – I thought “wow” – even “real actors” would have a problem pulling that one off – it was so “real” and obviously very honest?!  Awful!

      His partner has wonderful parents who flew in from the U.S. (where the guys are getting married)… they have even offered his parents air tickets and accom. to go to the U.S. and be part of his wedding ……maybe they will go?  They are copping a lot of ‘flack” from people in Oz to the point they are almost “prisoners” in their own home!  Bizarre.

      It’s on Mondays at 9.00am Chn. 7

    Makes you wonder why people would go on such a show?

      …..yes – was thinking that?  Surely the parents would not like the intrusion of a camera crew into their home when such “raw emotions” are being felt ……I “googled” to see if they received any money from the network….don’t appear to be ………. 

      … blurb on Google just says they did it to bring to attention what “families” go through in their lives  …blah blah ….weird…….

      I reckon those parents did it because they are wanting the world to know they are shaming their son and indirectly all homosexuals. It’s just another homophobic action, driven in the mothers case by religion and in the fathers case by immature macho BS. They obviously want people to know that they don’t accept their son and probably imagined they would have the majority on side. Good to hear they got a negative public reaction. Yes the other parents are beautiful. Talk about good and evil…..

      Robi, or it could be the son wanting to shame his parents given that he has had very little if any contact with them for years before the show. He knew exactly what their reaction would be yet he did it anyway to embarrass and shame them on national TV and place himself as the ‘victim’. How convenient then to have his Aunt (Mother’s sister) and future ‘in-laws’ be the complete oposite.

      And how predictable of people on this site to criticise his parents for having their own opinions and faith and sticking to them.

    I agee…”weird”…there is enough intrusion in our lives as it is without putting yourself out there under public scrutiny.

    OK – well – much to my dismay – lol (kidding) I caught up today with the MKR shows …….cold and rainy here in Melb. so what better time ……… thank heavens I recorded them – there is exactly 5 mins of ads. between each segment of the show ….cuts it down to like a 35/40 mins. per show ……. lol

    The married so called young “Hipsters” from Melb. – the chick that “cries” all  the time?  Spare me the pain!  lol 

    The “screeching/giggling” sisters from NSW – Arghhhh  – nice people but their voices??……hideous!

    The “Seafood King”  from Broome W.A.  – well – what a “loser” he turned out to be – all talk and no action!  Lowest score ever ……   lol lol …..

    Am now in the mood for MKR tonight – yayyyyyy  –  the gals from Qld. I think???

    I admit to watching none of these shows. Even playing Spider or Rummiecube or Sudoku, or reading a book is more entertaining than watching that crap. The power button gets very handy for switching the tele off after watching the news.
