I know this will not be popular with a lot of the British public, but I hate ITV1's Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one? I feel on a daily basis the only one. Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island was on and all my female friends and some of my family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend cried out "never?". They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one that would last around 20 minutes I will watch that I thought I can do twenty minutes, myself and my eighteen year old niece who had come to stay decided to settle down and see what all the fuss was about. what I saw was a blindfolded girl kiss each boy who were lined up waiting and give them scores out of ten, then the same the other way around were one blindfolded boy went along a line up of girls and kissed each one and gave them scores out of ten one girl got three out of ten, that would have given her loads of self esteem, I thought to myself what year are we living in again. These individuals who are staying in this villa are supposed to be in their twenty's, Oh I am sorry I thought they were about 14.
They are all carbon copies of everything that is wrong with society today and what the hell was a doctor doing on there and as I predicted none of the girls fancied him, he was far to intelligent for them, they did not understand anything he was talking about instead they all fancied the best looking beef cake. Funny that.
But what got me the most is they could not have put in a less diverse group of people not one ounce of fat on their tanned toned bodies not one person with disabilities or different body shapes. I was really bored. I related what I had seen to my friend on a later date and she said " you're thinking far too much about it". Am I really! do I really want to watch a programme that teaches me nothing, could give people body image problems, and listen to them only going on about who they fancy when that is the only thing that should be on your young minds. |I hope that the people who watch and enjoy the programme don't think to deeply about it and take it as entertainment and after the hour is over come back into the real world and live.
