It seems like the summer is the time for dating reality shows to pop up with VH1’s “Dating Naked” and Bravo’s latest, “The Singles Project.” Bravo says it’s the “first real-time dating docu-series in the U.S. – viewers will be able to help the stars overcome their hang-ups, manage their expectations, and broaden their dating horizons. Each episode will be shot and aired in the same week.”
It has a heavy social component where viewers can vote on what they should wear or who they should date. Not sure I’d want viewers participating, but it would be cool to have your friends be able to watch you and provide feedback.
I think the benefit is that they watch themselves.
I’m sure I’d learn a lot watching myself on a date. A show that I will confess to actually learning a lot from was “Tough Love.” Yes, it got super dramatic as the seasons went on but Steve would show the daters what mistakes they were making and then give them advice. So far none of the daters on ‘Singles Project’ seem to have any serious mental issues lol.
