S01.E01: Chemistry 101

Recommended Posts

I didn't even know about it but I stumbled upon it and like the first half- hour! I like the beach porn and it seems much lighter and "normal" than any of the Bach's- I've watched them all since Trista's season!

I've been watching for less than 5 minutes. No thanks. Trying too hard to both be like and not be like the bachelor. I don't like it.

wait ... where is the forum for this show?

I expected to hate it, and in 5 minutes was thinking this is a scripted piece of garbage, but I stuck it out and was pleasantly surprised. The places where they are staying are gorgeous and there seemed (so far) to be less "drama" "drinking" schenanigans, and the women actually seemed intelligent. By the end, I am waiting for the next episode. Even if this is just a fluffy summer show, its good for a tv tune out.

Here it is! I finally requested it after Episode 2 and realized I need to talk more about this :D.

I am slightly confused on the format. So each guy meets all the girls.  He goes to the pavilion where those who chose to meet him are there.  He chooses 2 of them.  They hang out for I don't know how long but he chooses one.  Then what?  What is the end game here?

the end game?   Love, I guess.  

Cause it's not connected to DWTS, or PEOPLE magazine, so I guess it's just TRUE LOVE.

I meant is there more to this than every man ending up with a woman or not?  Any option for the women to change to another man or anything like that?

We haven't got that far yet. So far only 2 couples are coupled. We did see both couples ride horses in the beach and a preview looked like one guy thinks he picked the wrong one but I don't know what happens with that?

ETA: Yea I really said "in the beach"! I never seen  nothing like it.

I thought the first episode was like pulling teeth, but the second seemed to move a little faster.  We'll see.  I despise the crying shock jock--"Boo hoo, I'm 23 and will never meet another guy who watches Fox News like me every night."  The others seem ok.

I don't watch The Bachelor or any of its spawn, so I'm not burned out on this type of show. Like the review says, I did literally have it on in the background while surfing the net and paying bills, lol. And it was good enough to set my DVR to record for some summer fluff. The island is exquisite. I like the variety of new couples being formed each week. Not sure what happens after that. The first pair seem like a natural match.

So far, the guys seem pretty nice and not too narcissistic, and the women seem not crazy. Except for the crying "radio personality." Maybe she just needed a snack. Day drinking doesn't go well for everyone.

I assume that at a certain point there will be a moment when the couples have to decide if they want to leave the island together.  What happens if they don't is unclear.  I assume the man just leaves but i don't know if the woman could return to the bungalows.

I'm thinking that the first few couiples have an unfair advantage of knowing each other longer before the end of the show. They also have a bigger selection of women to choose from and find the right one. The 8th or 9th man to arrive will only have about four eligible girls. that's a veyr small selection. Unless some of the other couples will have decided to break up by then....

So while I've only watched a bit, this show seems really unfair to the women.

So, the only decision they get to make is yes or no to the guy based on a few minutes of conversation.  And if you say no, it seems like you're cut off from the guy forever.

On the other hand, the guy gets to go to the tiki bar and spend time (hours) talking to all the women, and then he gets to pick two based on having more information.

And then he further gets to pick again based on even more information who he wants to take to the couples quarters.

I know I shouldnt think too much.

I don't get it either.   The guys keep coming, choose two, discard one and she goes back in the pile. When the girls are gone or down to the point where the guy has no choice but the 2 left is it over?  Usually shows state what happens at the end at the beginning of the show so we know what to expect.
