Wow, Andy Dick really just isn't very funny or creative. I always kinda thought he was. He seemed funny on Newsradio, and when he took his pants off for that Entertianment Tonight interview, but give him his own show and this is what he comes up with, just a one-note joke of acting like a primadonna celebrity. The joke was old after one episode, and after struggling through the second I really have no desire to see any more. It was even edited to drag out the boring parts (the rose ceremony) and compress the funny parts (the quiz). He could have given the contestants all kinda of funny tasks to do, but he mostly just subjected them to pointless menial labour, to position him as a cruel dictator and continue the primadonna celebrity joke. The most interesting thing is the contestant's to-camera responses about his behaviour. I can't work out if they're really taking him seriously or if they were just told to pretend to. In addition to being unfunny a lot of it just seems staged. If the whole thing was in fact scripted and the show was marketed/presented as a scripted show I would have had different expectations and maybe accepted it for what it is, but spontaneity was what it really seemed to lack yet what they seemed to be striving for.
