I thought Unreal was going to be funny, but I couldn't stomach the first half hour.

I had seen Unreal on tv shows like Entertainment Tonight and Extra, and I thought, "cool, a piss-take of The Bachelor and other reality shows, I'll give it a go."

So it debuted here in Aus this week and I started watching it, and watched it off and off for the next half hour but that was all I could stomach. 

The girls peeing on the lawn was gross and I switched to something else, the ex boyfriend trailing his ex girlfriend around telling her she needed to stay away from him was bullshit. You were the one stalking her, dude, didn't you get that? You don't stalk your ex and tell them to stay away from you.

The whole Bachelor thing was the concept of the show I suppose, but it wasn't funny. I'm not sure why I thought this show would be a comedy, maybe because it's a piss-take of reality tv shows, but I certainly won't be watching any more.

What did you guys think of it?


  1. I have not heard of this show but now you have me intrigued.

  2. I watched it here in the US last season. I watched the whole season because parts of it were interesting. The idea of how scripted and manipulated the shows like Bachelor or Bachelorette could be was kind of interesting. Overall, didn't love it or hate it. The story had some entertaining twists but none of the characters were very likable. Everyone was pretty slimy in their quest to either win the game or get good ratings. So, while I watched all of it because of the cliff hangers taking me to the next episode...if it doesn't have a 2nd season, I won't miss it.
