The meet-cute: • The women take turns meeting their suitor for a brief speed-dating round on a wooden veranda.
• By the way, if you’re thinking this walk-left-walk-right thing feels a lot like Tinder, you’re right, because — zeitgeist alert! New couples are formed and sent off to the villas, to live happily ever after and/or fight, cheat or breakup (in which case the women stick around and the men are sent home) as the producers see fit. • We learn that “host” Terrence J is actually a shipwreck victim and this whole show is an elaborate fever-dream he is narrating to a beach volleyball (this doesn’t actually happen, but would be a good twist). Will the women’s taste improve as the show goes on, or will desperation drive them mad? Will anybody find true love, or at the very least, a lucrative book deal?— they all have cell phones, with which they can text each other totally candid things like, “There are certain times where I 2nd guess my decision,” that are in no way written or crafted by producers after the fact. “Y’all know how relationships go: Power can shift quickly,” says “host” Terrence J. I don’t know, but, for reasons I cannot explain, I’ll be watching.• The suitor then heads over to the tiki bar to see how many girls deemed him worthy of boning in a luxurious and presumably air-conditioned “couples villa” on the other side of the island. Now it’s the man’s turn to choose which two of these women will come back to the villa with him to exchange awkward death stares while pretending to enjoy horseback riding. There is a seemingly endless cycle of men in brightly colored slacks ready to be funneled into the island’s gaping maw. This, by the way, is the extent of the female agency on the show. • Meanwhile, in the bungalows, the women coexist happily in a matrilineal society free from the leering gaze of men. For all The Bachelorette’s shortcomings, at least it’s easy to understand what’s going on.One woman is introduced to a group of the finest douches from across the United States, and, if we’re lucky, Canada.
Each week, she sends a few of the less-telegenic douches home, with the hope of finding one perfect douche to spend the rest of the media cycle with. Fox’s new dating show, Coupled, from reality TV maven Mark Burnett, is a liiiittle more advanced.
Let me tell you, I have watched three episodes, and I’m pretty sure you need an advanced mathematics degree to understand the game theory at work here.
I am just a simple blogger, so there’s no guarantees I’ll get this right, but here’s my best attempt: The setup: • Twelve single women live together in bungalows on a tropical island, along with this man.
I think he is the host, or else he wandered away from the Anguilla Club Med and is lost.
• One by one, men are airlifted onto the island via chopper.
Think of it like an emergency rescue helicopter, only instead of extracting victims from a disaster zone, they are delivering them to one.
