The Tujuane TV show is a lot of hot air, just like BBA. The only difference is that the former is a phony. No single second of that show is real, not even its name. It’s as pretentious as the characters that embarrass themselves on live television every week. That is probably the reason why I only follow the show via Twitter. I got a chance to meet one of the ladies who once showed up for the show- she is from my campus, and I asked her why she signed up for the show. I wanted to know why she would seek for love in such a hopeless place. Her answer? “The food was awesome, and I was doing my friend (one of the organizers of the show) a favour.” Those are her words in verbatim. Even South C’s finest Susan Mirfat herself who got her ego deflated,that the show is not real, and that not everything you see therein should be believed. Now, if the show is scripted as she says, and the actors are merely marionettes, then the show owes a big apology (and/or compensation) to Ms Mirfat for the humiliation she went through for the sake of their ratings. The sham aside. Assuming that there are people honestly looking for a serious relationship, and did not give a toss about the food, why would anyone want to find love in a TV Show? Those peeps are out to make money and care for your love life as much as our MPs care about the Occupy Parliament brigands. We have evolved to looking for love in all the wrong places. We toss and turn in bed because our Facebook status reads ‘single’. So we join dating sites and shows like Tujuane out of sheer desperation and call in to radio stations for hook ups. My question is, if you have a problem, why not approach a friend or aunt instead of airing your desperation on national television? Furthermore, how many of those people on Tujuane ever made it past the free lunch? How many of those hook ups on radio ever make it past the phone call? If these people ever cared about love like they say, then perhaps they would do a follow up on the couple once in a while, right? But you know what? They won’t, because no love sparks have ever been created out of a camera. Perhaps the organizers of Tujuane proceed on the notion that that the fastest way to a person’s heart is through the stomach. I am pretty sure that they are happy about the current ratings that the show has received. But if I were them, I would put the champagne bottle down, and lift the veil they have masked themselves in. Perhaps in doing so, I would notice that the couch potatoes who tune in every Tuesday have Twitter handles- and memes. And believe you me, they are nasty. Aki I swear- if I cheat I hate God My lady friend who went to Tujuane for their free food is still happily engaged to her boyfriend. Everyone in campus knows her soul mate- the one she met ages before Tujuane was even an idea. Without the show, she met a guy she loved, but on camera, she was forced to endure a schmuck. Notice the irony?
