love the guy or the money?

A new reality TV show has been dreamed up to test the sincerity of a woman’s love for a man they are led to believe is rich. In reality, he’s only pretending to be rich. As far as the women know, it’s another “Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire.” At the end of the show, the man is revealed to be a construction worker who moves dirt for $20K a year.

I fear the guy is likely to be dumped like a sack of bricks, but it may open the eyes of rich men to a potentially unpleasant thought. Their woman’s love may not be inspired by dashing good looks or lovable personalities. I wonder, if a man knew of the motivation for his mate’s love, would he end the relationship? Who knows, the guy may be in it for his wife’s good looks.

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got dumped not because he was poor, but because he was a lying, manipulative SOB. Why expect the woman to be sincere if the man’s not going to be? Sounds like an altogether rotten way to start a relationship to me. And yet another in a long line of uninteresting ‘reality’ shows. I won’t be watching.

  2. A very wise observation. I find some of the reality shows mildly interesting, so if I’m surfing channels and happen to this show, I’ll tune in for a few minutes.

  3. I think the bottom line of this show proves an obvious fact of life, and I believe these women are going to get what they deserve when the bomb is dropped on the lucky ‘winner’. The guy may want to take cover!

    I may watch bits and peices just for that!

  4. Let’s face it. No matter how we meet or why we marry, it all comes down to what we’re willing to put up with. From looking at the statistics, we pretty much have a 50/50 chance of making our marriages work, some of us have even worse odds. I agree with Levi though, I have about 100 other things that I’d rather do, 90 of which involve my wife. I find no joy or thrill in watching the misery and embarrasement of others.
