oh god, evrytime i see that commercial for it i cringe. what a horrible thing to EVER opt for! those ppl r stupid if they think it is a good way to test their relationship--things do no twork like THAT in real life to THAT extent all in one BLOW like that! but you know who's dumber? the ppl who give in and fall for the act! THESE ARE PAID ACTORS! THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO WANT YOU! im soorry, im just really upset that t.v. has decided to televise live deaths of relationships! *huff* :P

they arent actors really. they are real people that are acting real. their purpose there is to get to know the guys...

yes, they are being paid (not much though)... but they arent being paid to hook up.. they are being paid for their time that they spend there on the island.

argh. i don't like the idea as much as you do. but ya... for media purposes they have these shows about "real life people" in "real life situations" and they know the ratings are going to shoot sky high because all "The Real World," "Survivor," etc. shows brought in the $$ so as long as people keep watching, they'll keep having these "real life" shows. Argh... so now they are really playing with human interest. I mean, what do humans like to do best... than GOSSIP (in our real lives) about who's dating whom, who's cheating (or having an affair) with whom, basically anything related to relationships, sex, lies and deceit, etc... basically anything that plays with HUMAN EMOTION. So they got this idea...and boy they really hit the big one this time.
so people are out there thinking just like you... yet people will still glue there eyes to the box because even if they don't like the idea...we're all curious... we want (unconsciously) our human emotions to be played with, to be CHALLENGED...

ya, and, though i'm not a television watcher (the box makes me restless, i can't help it... so i dislike watching tv), those people are real people (real couples in this case) being plopped there together. If they used actors and staged it like WWF wrestling (haha...off-topic, but true), then people will watch.... but it's not as...*eh-hem* "tempting" as using real people coupled up and "testing their love" and temptations.

hehe... i'm saying all this and i haven't even watched the show. =) Not really planning on watching either. of course i'm curious like everyone else, but i'm not really that interested. hehe. hrmmm... *raises an eyebrow*

I may have to watch it, but purely for scientific reasons.

seems like some of them were already dysfunctional... reminds me of that song .." if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife..." Not that that's true but if a huge part of a relationship's identity is that you're both knockouts, and kind of wild, you're already focusing on the wrong things... I think you can be hot, flirty, wild, married, and completely devoted to your spouse and not ever take it a step further when tempted by sex from someone else... Isn't that what it's supposed to be about? People forget how strong marriage vows should be. I'll get off my soapbox now... Maybe I'm just bitter that my fiance turned it off halfway through the show... ;)
