What a lucky gal--NOT!
19 March 2004 | by (Illinois, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

So let me get this gay, a bunch of men are going to behave like boors in order to convince each other that they are NOT gay, and the woman in the center of all gets to PICK one? Sheesh.

They ALL come across as mean spirited (this is a Fox reality show after all), and prove without fail that looks aren't everything. The sad thing is, Jackie (our hero) does not even seem to be looking for a man with whom she genuinely has chemistry, she only cares to find a man who flaunts that he is clearly heterosexual, and that is never a good sign.

It may sound like good cheap thrills, but all that ridiculous macho posturing got old REALLY fast. I looked at the clock and noted the exact time during the second episode I stopped caring about any of it (7:28).
