While it is known to many of us through seductive tourism brochures showcasing the state’s pristine wilderness, gourmet magazine articles celebrating its burgeoning food culture and newspaper stories gasping at a world-leading art museum, the recent devastating bushfires serve as a stark reminder that all is not as it seems.Each person is hit with spotlights, while the other remains in the dark, protecting the lit person from the dark person’s reaction.Which is fine, but being on display like that is where the show went from arguably credible and somewhat respectable to being all about looks.
August 16, at 4: The couple, who live in London, met on the hit dating show but ended up going on dates to the Isle of Fernando's with other people.
I’m sure it would save some nice scratch to notify them via e-mail, flyer, or even carrier pigeon. Anyway, step one was a group date, where the six singles met for the first time in the dark room. You can imagine what people cut from that show must be like.
Let me explain to you what my “book by its cover” judgment is based on: have we been reduced to scraping so low on the “finding love on TV” scale (already a low bar itself) that we’re matchmaking in the dark? The show takes three guys and three girls and matches them up for love in a dark room, where looks are taken out of the evaluation equation. In the season two premiere we met Joey (a straight shooter from New Jersey), Dave (insecure about his looks but all about his personality), Storm (a former player looking for love), Natasha (admittedly superficial), Jessica (fat as a kid), and Kym (picky about looks). Oh, and there’s a host, who does absolutely nothing save for directing the groups to their next destination.
In the end Kym overcame her hesitations and went to meet Storm (update: the two are not dating but are in touch), while Dave picked Jessica, walking right past Natasha’s room with her (they’re no longer dating either), but by then the good will the show had built up over the course of the episode was lost for good.
I wasn’t about to pick the show up, but at least I could have walked away thinking I’d misjudged it.
