I refuse to pay to watch my favorite show when it's a FREE local Network. This is absolutely ridiculous, how can you do this, take a free thing and charge out the yingyang for it. hope you fall short of making a killing for something that most can not afford. only giving a 1 star because you can not post without it.

too much back biting on the part of the contestants. kiss them and leave them. Who wants someone who just went to bed with someone else. every girl looks naked most of the time. I think it was a big deal to have a verging on the show. But I was saddened to see him fall off his pedestal for tv.

Here's a quick synopsis of Nick. This girl's awesome, it's so easy to do things with her my family loves her, she has so many great qualities, she's just what i need! And this other girl is really hard to deal with, and has a lot of issues, super insecure, lives in a completely different country, every time we hang out I'm arguing and never have true fun, it's basically conflict city and women I've chosen like her in the past has NEVER worked out and they even at least lived in the same country. I'm going to choose the one that has the most issues because the one I get along with, that my parents love, that I just have fun with all the time, that I could be myself, someone who'd have my back, be a strong support, can just relax and be a great wife, mom etc, I'm going to tell her all the wonderful things about her and then let her go because she just makes too much sense and who wants to do something that makes sense? Yup. That's basically the whole show. Waste. of. time. show. Never. Again. 😐
