Lifestyles of the Rich and Superficial
I never believed that anyone could come up with a TV show that I would despise. Reality programming has accomplished what I thought impossible. The Millionaire Matchmaker is (apparently) paid big bucks for her expertise in matching up clients. Does she use some kind of personality assessment, measure of compatibility, or even consider informally the background, education, or goals of the client and potential mate? Nope...it's all about hotness. This is bad enough but for the Matchmaker of this series to give some sort of lip service to the notions of long term relationships, marriage, and stability when the true goal is obviously nothing more than brief liaisons between the rich and the beautiful plumbs the depths of hypocrisy in a way that few other reality series have. I realize that reality TV is an oxymoron but the world being reflected by this program, be it real or not, is a completely repugnant one.
