@cbgg:  GUILTY!!!  I find it to be a fascinating social experiment, in all honesty.  Sure, it is on MTV, and sure, probably pretty skewed (as in, they tell you that they underwest extensive testing on who is their ‘perfect’ match, but do not tell you exactly what the tests were, and/or is there ever really a ‘perfect’ match?!).  But, the idea in and of itself is prette interesting!

For me to name whom I think are perfect matches is tough, because honestly, I am still learning names, but I can say that I think Kayla and (what’s his name?) SEEM pretty awesome.  WHY THEY DID NOT SEND THEM, or even crazy Brittany and the guy whom hates her into the match box is beyond me?!

For all intents and purposes, they house mates are not playing the game smart…at all.  I liked how the one girl was trying to convince them to keep the two couples together whom they thought had the most chemistry for the lighting ceremony, because they had two matches last week, and then mix it up from there with everyone else.  But, they did not.

I think what will make me happy – as far as a reality show outcome – is for their perfect matches to be so ‘far off’ from whom they are or were initially attracted too, because that is what I think they should be doing on the show…date outside their box. This show has ratings, afterall 🙂

@cbgg:  Completely and totally agree.  I mean, in listening to them talk/interact as a viewer, they seem to be a bunch if immature and horny ‘real world wannabes’, and not people that are legitimately into finding ‘true’ love!!  Sheesh..the exes of the guys made that pretty clear when they are pretty much saying ‘IM NOT GOING ANYWHERE ladies’, and the guys reaction is klinking beers and laughing.  

Also a reason this show seems so skewed 🙂  (Again, enter my love of Kayla and Nick maybe…they seem to be COMMUNICATING as well as flirting).

I totally want to see a truth booth match, but they need to send the RIGHT person.  Why send a couple whom have barely talked, or interacted into the booth – just because one chose the other for a date to ‘get to know them better’?!

IDK. We shall see, but I am so excited you started a thread 🙂

One of the girls on the show, Paige, went to my high school, but I haven’t watched it yet. She had a boyfriend before going on the show so I’m not sure if she was still with him during the show or broke up right before filming, but the whole ‘reality TV dating’ thing is not my cup of tea anyway. Its all too scripted. A good friend of mine starred on the TV show “Downsized”, and she told me often of how directed the entire thing was.
