MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCE is the beacon of reality TV. Unlike a bunch of people scrambling for wood in Africa or couples bickering on a remote island in the South Pacific, its contestants are caught in the throws of a painfully agonizing courtship.
The Coy family truly suffers when they meet Randy's fiance Steve Williams (eloquently played by Steven W. Bailey).
Steve's antics are always entertaining, making one amazed the Daddy Coy didn't come after him with a sledge hammer (or some type of large mallet).
Unfortunately, this presentation had to be rigged. The Coys, on the brink of complete emotional breakdown, pay no heed to the omnipresent cameras surrounding them. Furthermore, knowing the amount of initial money FOX probably shelved for their participation, I'm surprised the brothers Coy allowed themselves to be filmed wearing kilts.
In fact, the program leads me back to square one: reality TV is anything but reality.
Nonetheless, FIANCE'S entertainment value had me on the edge of my seat for many a Monday night. So, with full confidence, I declare last night's season finale to be the greatest moment to be broadcast on an American network since Neil Armstrong graced the lunar surface over 33 years ago.
