What do you think? I think the concept of the show is good, but I think the big flaw of it (that is becoming more readily apparent with each episode) is that a guy is trying to give advice to the girls and it’s causing some misinterpretation.

YES! I totally love this show so I’m glad some one else besides me watches it. I think you’re right about the misinterpretation, but I’m not sure if flaw is the right word. What he says is (mostly) true, I just think a lot of the women are delusional. As with every VH1/MTV/E!, etc. reality show, I take editing into consideration as well. So much is edited for entertainment value so I’d love to see what gets left on the cutting room floor. This guy is clearly playing into the "tough love" concept of the show, and I’m not sure these girls have ever had some one talk to them like that before. (Especially gold-digger Taylor. Lordy…) I’m curious to see how the show evolves. Wow…I have no life.

My FI would totally agree with you on most women being delusional! However, I think that the problem is that while Steven is being blunt and totally honest with his advice and just telling it like it is, the girls are reading between the lines and completely overanalyzing his advice. Two good examples in episode two are Jody ("Miss Lone Ranger") and Arian ("Miss Party Girl"). When Steven told Jody that she was sounding too career oriented, he really meant that literally she was just talking about it too much and that she should display that she does not work all the time. But she seemed to interpret his comments as though he were saying "you ARE too career oriented" and even though that’s all she talked about, she seemed almost surprised when Steven brought it up, because she knew that she wasn’t all about that. However, she did seem to understand once she heard it for the third time from the guy she went on the date with.
It’s going to be really interesting to see how the girls turn out! Haha I want Taylor to get something good out of this.
