You know Take Me Out. A bit cheeky, a bit terrible.
Well, now Channel 5 has got its own version. It is called Stand by Your Man. The format is eerily similar to Take Me Out (a load of girls decide which guy to go on a date with), but trust me, Stand by Your Man is so so so so SO much worse.
If you watch an episode I guarantee that you will end up considering Take Me Out the Waitrose of British dating shows. Here’s why.
On Stand by Your Man the bloke who gets the most girls queuing by him gets the date at the end of the show.
This reinforces the idea that the only way you’re going to find love is by being the hottest, dropping the right sexual innuendos in the right fashion, and being the one other people seem to find the most genuinely attractive.
Is there any room for finding love with just that one person and not giving a toss about what anyone else thinks? No. There is not. And this makes you mad.
Stand by Your Man is on Channel 5 on Fridays at 11.30pm.
You have been warned.
