'Footballer Wants a Wife' is a parody reality show that follows three young football stars on their modern-day quest for love. Our three footballers, drawn from three different codes, are matched up against fourteen women who will stop at nothing to become a WAG.
Were the only good reviews by the people who made the show?
I feel like I'm being generous giving this a 2/10. The 'drama' in this show is absolutely absurd. In one show I saw what I presumed to be someone buying a scooter, someone else getting into a scooter accident, someone finding a DNA test for a baby created through cheating someone having their 'dark past revealed'. I could go on but I think it was close to 60 dramas in 60 minutes. And the only reason I kept it on was because I couldn't find the remote.
I'm no reviewer but I just needed to set the story straight that this show doesn't have people from 'all walks of life' it's set in a beach-side apartment building... The series is not even remotely relatable to 90% of the population.
The writing is just beyond me some of the lines actually made me cringe (definitely not the writers intention). It is infuriatingly pretentious and the characters in the show can't possibly exist in real life because they're all too narcissistic to realise there are other people in the world outside of their own problems.
I am so saddened that this is what Australian television has come to.
