you have to laugh. it's that or find the producers and STAB THEM TO DEATH WITH BLUNT INSTRUMENTS. how horrible.
Quite. I mean, even leaving aside the horrific misogyny and giving the benefit of the doubt that there'll be a version where the girls get to pass judgment on the chaps, how do you start going on this show?
"Hey, do you want to go on the telly as my ugly best friend?"
"Why, yes, I'd be delighted to."
I'm half tempted to apply, then give the glamour pusses - ew! - 0 out of 10 for everything, and their ugly friends who I imagine will be much more fanciable anyway 10 out of 10 on all the before shots. They aren't even going to be proper ugly are they, it'll just be TV ugly, ie normal. And nice.
Surely the best tactic is to surprise the best friend with the "opportunity" on camera, so that she feels unable to tell them to fuck off for fear of being thought ugly AND a bad sport?
Please do. I would (theoretically, if I were a bloke and wanted to) probably vote the same way. And they probably would be more fanciable, not just to ruin it.
this is a FIX i reckon, a la tool academy...
Please tell me this will only air on a tv channel I never watch.
It's the "don’t worry; you won’t have to meet the girls" that does it for me.
Yes, I know. "Phew, I won't have to stand face to face with these women I'm passing judgement on."
Also "comment on everything from their noses to their clothes". After all, what else is there?
a quick google reveals lots of people upset about this, but no actual link to an actual programme...
Don't interfere with my ANGER!
Maybe if enough people get sufficiently upset by it, the broadcaster might drop it before claiming responsibility.
I suppose there are certain advantages to have the slathering arseholes of the world gathered in one convenient location.
I'm not condoning violence, just the bricking up and detonation of the building.
That would be cordoning violence
Yes, my first thought was let's bomb the place.
Please let this be a set-up of some kind. If it's a real programme I will weep.
...nine am? What sort of self-respecting misogynist is awake and raring to judge at that sort of time on a Sunday?
One that's still awake, because he's been up all night giving it to some bitch, of course.
When did you receive this? Only, I'm on SRO's mailing list as well, but didn't hear about this and now I'm wondering if they deliberately haven't emailed women about this. Almost as though it were something we might be offended by...?
(Of course, ALL blokes want to pass judgement on women in such a manner, that list surely doesn't need to be filtered down any further than "Has penis? TICK!")
Everything else I want to say can only be expressed in hard consonants. FFFNNNGGGGHHHHHHHH.
I got it just this afternoon. Perhaps there's something in my booking history that made them think I'd like this. Christ.
What on earth have you been to before? :)
I suspect, going from the info you provide when booking, that all the "Mr"s got emails, but "Ms/Miss/Mrs"s didn't...
I'm on SRO's list, and didn't get it either...
(er, and am male)
Hmmm, well then perhaps ruudboy
's earlier comment is the more accurate. Sorry ruudboy
! Either that or our emails are held up in the ether...
I didn't get it either...
Eeeeeuw: am also reminded of US show I saw once of women trying to persuade their sisters/cousins/BFs who were very, very casual in their attire and not into gender display to dress more femme: it could well have worked the other way with sisters/cousins/BFs trying to get the women in question not to dress like v low-rent hookers.
Who are these glam women with their 'ugly duckling' friends, who surely are unlikely to remain their bezzies for very long once this proposal is put to them? Enquiring minds would like to know. (Surely there is only one Liz Jones?)
