A guilty pleasure
I love this show, because I enjoy seeing the men take their clothes off. My major complaint is that they get too many close-up shots of the women wearing skimpy thongs, when I'd like to see more close-ups of the guys in their boxers.
Now I must admit, the show itself is pretty stupid. The gender-based questions are sometimes insulting, and Graham Elwood makes way too big of a deal out of the losers having to come down to the center of the stage at the end of the show to strip off whatever else they're wearing. It's really pointless making the losers strip off the rest of their clothes, because no matter which team (the two guys or the two girls) wins or loses, all the contestants end up voluntarily stripping down at the end of the show anyway.
And they don't even take off all of their clothes. The guys always strip down only to their boxers, and the girls strip down to their skimpy lingerie. In my opinion, I think the losers should have to strip completely naked at the end of the show, while the winners admire, tease, and/or laugh at them (besides, the censors could/would blur out the contestants' genitals/private parts, since this is only a cable network).
And even though I'm a gay male, I like watching Jennifer as the dealer. Granted, I'm not attracted to her, but I still think it's amusing how she's always showing off her body (usually sticking out her chest, to arouse the hetero male viewers) and thinks she's so sexy. The best episodes are the ones where Graham and Jennifer start dancing with the contestants at the very end of the show (and the episodes where at the very end of the show the guys are wearing boxers with cool designs on them).
