If you were alive in the mid-2000s, chances are you remember a little show on MTV called Next. The concept of the show was that daters would get off a bus to meet their "datee," and if the datee wasn't feelin' it, they would scream "NEXT!"
And it turns out, not only was the concept of the show pretty cringe, but it also had A LOT of problematic moments that really didn't age well. Here are the worst ones:
1.When Allison nexted Eddie for liking fashion and made this joke:
2.And when the guys on the bus hounded Eddie about his sexuality:
3.When these guys took pride in the fact that they'd slept with multiple women who'd never had sex before:
4.When this conversation that fetishized and made generalizations about women’s bodies happened:
5.And when Mike was fetishized/stereotyped because of his race:
6.When Chris’s response to being nexted was pulling his shorts down and chasing around the girls with his penis out.
7.And when this jerk threatened to next a girl unless she kissed him, even though she didn’t want to:
8.When this was one of Brian’s “fun facts”:
9.When Eric got nexted because he didn’t speak Spanish and this was his response:
10.When Adam started off the episode by objectifying the woman he’d be dating before he even met her:
11.When these contestants put down a guy because they all thought he was too “girly”:
12.When this guy essentially compared a girl to secondhand clothing:
13.When this fellow gave us some TMI that absolutely nobody asked for:
14.When a contestant was riding a skateboard and Levi decided to give these words of encouragement:
15.And when this guy nexted a girl because she had a boob job.
