Ewww. There’s this new show on TVLand called The Cougar. It’s a dating show with an older woman trying to find a date? a relationship? a something within a group of 25 younger guys. The whole premise of the show kind of grosses me out but not more than the end of the show, which I stumbled upon while channel surfing.
Anyway, It turns out that the kiss off for the end of this show is not the typical rose ceremony or whatever pseudo-romantic thing producers come up with. It is literally a kiss off. The cougar either gives the guy a kiss on the lips or a kiss on the cheek. The kiss on the lips is supposed to signify that a guy has made it to the next round. Now, I’m an avid reality tv watcher and even I balk at this move. Who comes up with this sh*t?? Seriously. Have these producers not heard of germs? Did someone miss the health class where they were forewarned about the spreading of germs??
By the end of the ceremony, the woman had kissed 15 guys on the lips. Again I say, “Eeeeewwwwww!” If I were the last guy standing, I would be like, “Umm. No thanks. How about a hug instead?… or maybe a Tetanus shot.”
