They thought they were competing for the title of "All-American Man." They couldn't have been more wrong.
This fall, eleven manly men will compete to become...the ultimate lady. And the winner will take home a quarter of a million dollars!
Uh, yeah. When I read that description on the website, my first thought was, wow, are they competing to get a sex change operation? (No doubt I was heavily influenced by last week's episode of "Veronica Mars," in which a sex change figures prominently.) That might be worth watching. Okay, not really.
But simply watching 11 guys get make-overs to look like female impersonators . . . . I won't be watching. Even I have my standards when it comes to reality TV.
UPDATE: Prof. Althouse put more thought into reading the website than I did. But the conclusion's the same: she won't be watching either. (By the way, just to be clear, like Prof. Althouse, I'm not offended by the show. I just have better things to do than to watch.)
