It can really be annoying!
20 August 2003 | by (Memphis, TN) – See all my reviews

Aisha Tyler was great on the show (the set was great, too.), but when the YDKJ guy took over as the show's announcer, the annoying factor was about to go up and over it. The beginning went with all 4 ranting about themselves on video, (if you where in the van, you watched it on a flat screen, or if you where at home watching, you did the same thanks to some special effects screen) then took 4 out on a locale, (1 switch per segment), introduce the 5th wheel to the show with accompanying graphics to introduce him or her, (all 4 rant on the 5th wheel on that same screen you saw earlier) go out to dinner with 3 on one table, 2 on the other, make love...we think, and vote on who gets to go out with who again. BTW, one gets shot out of voting when some graphic escorts her out. This is pretty annoying but it's a fun show with graphics and sound effects.
