It would make for some fascinating TV if they did. I love trash TV, too, but "trash" is one thing and "garbage" is another, lol. The first season was believable and kind of sweet, but it's gone straight to garbage since then. Instead of putting out an open casting call, which is only going to bring out the famewhores, try looking on some of the dating sites like eHarmony where most people there are looking for something besides hookups and sometimes really do want to get married. Comb the site for any who might make suitable candidates and then contact them privately to see if they'll agree to be on the show. And don't limit it only to under-thirty hotties. Let in some older couples and some who might not look exactly TV-ready but are serious about marriage. And get some "experts" who are serious about it, too, and not just those who want to be on TV and are really just hanging around to see if they can get strangers to have sex for a TV show. That's all Pepper and the "sex therapist" do. Pastor Cal might be all right, but the rest are worthless. C'mon, Show! We haven't given up on you yet. We know you can do it! In the first season, they claimed to use people on dating sites. There was also Dr. Citronella's personality test. Of course, this is just a TV show and some people are not marriage material (David Norton). The big thing about this show is that it's about arranged marriages. If you went the historical route, you might as well draw names out of a hat. Using any kind of match maker is only marginally better. Some people lie, some people don't have chemistry. I think Jamie and Doug worked out because their common interest is being important and liked and this works for them. The fact that Lifetime picked this up means the television experiment succeeded but the social experiment failed. It looks like the old fashioned method of dating people and marrying them is slightly more successful then getting picked by TV experts. 2 Link to comment
