Tila Tequila apparently wasn't joking around with that MySpace post about how A Shot At Love is ruining her everything, because she's turned down MTV's offer for a third season. Not to be dissuaded by a little thing like not having a bachelorette for their bachelorette show, MTV is planning to go ahead with a third season with a yet-to-be-decided bi-sexual famous lady. Yet-to-be-decided? That's a cry for TWoP casting suggestions if I've ever heard one. MTV, I got two words for you: Anne Heche.
This week Dating in the Dark debuted and it pretty much reinforced everything you'd imagine about the superficial nature of people (particularly those willing to go on reality shows). Then next week, More to Love, or as we like to call it, The Fatchelor, debuts. We've seen it, and it's not really much worse than The Bachelor franchise, but it does torture the poor hopeless women by giving them diamond promise rings (in lieu of roses), and making them return them in the hopes that their dream guy gives it back at the end of each episode. So many of these women have never even dated before that it's more than a little bit depressing, especially when the bachelor asks them for kisses and they oblige. So much desperation on one show that it got us thinking about the other dating shows that are more than a little bit gross... when you think about it.
