MTV Splitsvilla - Reality Bites

As soon as I saw the promos for this show, I knew I was gonna hate it on principle. The concept of the entire show has to be one of the most insulting ones I've come across. The basic idea is this. There are two snooty guys who are convinced that they're god's gift to females everywhere. They can do and say whatever they want 'cause hey, they are the catch. Then you have 20 girls. I still cannot believe that they got even 1 girl to be a part of this show, let alone 20. These girls will resort to anything and everything to grab the guys' attention which includes prancing around in minimal clothing and cheap, attention grabbing stunts like dancing atop tables. All this insanity for what? A chance to find their "Mr. Perfect", earn 5 lakh rupees and host a show on MTV. Pathetic wouldn't be an overstatement here. It looks like these girls have left every last ounce of dignity and self-respect they had back home and come to be a part of this dating reality show. I think it's an extremely demeaning concept for a show, no less coming from the makers of Roadies; a show which I really enjoyed. Even though I think it is sexist, I would be equally offended had it been 2 girls and 20 guys. The basic idea of the whole show is stupid.

The only thing I like about the show is Ranvijay who is really cute and wears great clothes *grins* I used to like Varun (one of the two arrogant guys) too in the good old Roadies days, but that was before I read on the official MTV Splitsvilla website that he had once had the audacity to use this so called pick-up line "Nice pair of mountains, when will I get a chance to climb them?" It is things like this that make me lose faith in the human race.

Nicely put and I agree with you that the concept isn't an appealing one,unless its watched by as stupid a guys or girls to grab attention.If you have to make it,make it rather interesting like Channel V had a show where guys would do sweet things for the girl like cook,write a poem and my favourite was when they gave them Rs.10 and they had to be creative and get something romantic.
This is just trying to change the order of how in some previous shows the guys would try to woo the girls.
I can't believe he used that line,so pathetically cheap.Awful!

@Shiva,its a blog post not a website.There is a difference you see.
Also is it necessary to have a blog post only about the things you "like" and not just views in general on anything?

oo, i totally agree. Though i did watch the show towards the ending coz i like Ranvijay too(!) and Vishal as well..but the concept definitely sucked. And now they're starting Season 2 with eight girls and eight guys - a teeny bit better than the earlier format but still equally putting off.
