Who is afraid of cowboys?

I am looking forward to this.

Any chance of explaining what the fuck he is on about ?

It’s a show called Joe Millionaire and it’s one of those 15 women (or men) in a house and the guy (or girl) kicks people off the show until he is left with one person whom he (or she) presumably wants to marry. Joe Millionaire has an extra kick- the women all think he is a millionaire when in fact he is just some shlub construction worker (in the American version). The last episode of the last Joe Millionaire was the highest rated tv program ever, 1 in 3 American households that were watching tv that night were watching it. It should be pretty funny to see the European version, particularly because they are making ‘Joe’ a oil cowboy guy.

“Whorish”? What do they actually get to fuck on television? Nice stereotypes shining through again, did the American version have grotesquely obese tramps with hybrid mullet weaves? The British version is using a brickie from Hackney with 2 years previous for ABH.

K, you explain it a bit better than the yeti guy. I religiously avoid the plethora of reality TV in this country, but I do like the sound of this one. What was the womans reaction when she found out that Joe was not a millionaire ?

Let’s just say that the woman and Joe are no longer together (and she got 1/2 a million for winning). The runner-up was found to have starred in fetish videos where she was tied up and such. It was pretty entertaining.
There wasn’t sex, per se, on the show, but in one episode the fetish girl mentioned above and Joe go into the woods so they can’t be seen and the subtitles read things like ‘mmmm slurp mmmm’. Whorish can be American too, Kweli. No one has any doubt that the women on these shows are all whorish.

The runner-up also appeared in Playboy approximately two months later (of course, she did this for some charity she feels strongly about LOL). Fantastic body, but that hard, evil face lets the air out of the balloon pretty quick.
I see Kweli’s interpreter is at the methadone clinic again.
