I was just looking for a thread about this! I watched the first 30 minutes and cringed myself inside out for all of them. Why, just why would you appear on a show like that? The first couple who were matched up looked really good together and both seemed lovely, and it was nice to see that all was going well a month on, but still...... Ick.
In my honest opinion, yes it's a bit of a gimmick and very cringey BUT I think it can only be a good thing from an educational viewpoint. Like LOADS of people are going to watch it (especially teens and young people) because it's rude controversial. And they have normal people with normal bodies. People might realise that people actually don't look like the fake/airbrushed/perfect adonis' and godesses they see on the internet/in magazines. Genitals are NOT pretty and come in various shapes and sizes, just like their owners.
