There's Now A TV Show Where You Have A Night In With Your Ex And It's Crazy

WHY WOULD YOU AGREE TO GO ON A TV SHOW LIKE THIS?

Posted on

So there's this new show called One Night With My Ex where exes meet for the first time since breaking up and stay in a flat together. It features moments like this:

Why are exes spending time in a flat together? Well, apparently they have questions about their breakup they want answered and they need closure.

The couples are alone (apart from these cameras and a TV show that will broadcast it afterwards).

Ultimate privacy.

Ultimate privacy.

As one of them arrives before the other, we get to see them seeing each other again for the first time.

These two people haven't seen each other in two years.

And, well...it's pretty awkward.

Just so you know, it's going to get more awkward.

And then they have drinks together.

Some of them hit it off right away.

And some of their conversations make me want to run into the middle of the street screaming.

They then read out cue cards about their relationship.

"Do you remember the first night we met?"

What a joker.

What a joker.

Some of the questions are rather intense.

Fuck.

Fuck.

"How would you rate our sex life out of 10?"

Fucccckkkkkkk.

And then they ask the slightly more serious questions on their cue cards.

OOOOOHHHHH EEEEEEEEEEE.

OOOOOHHHHH EEEEEEEEEEE.

"Did you stop finding me attractive?"

I can't even begin to tell you how uncomfortable it is.

Oh, and I swear 90% of the show is basically this.

The weird thing about this show is why would you agree to talk about the most hurtful part of your life, on television.

Especially when they have to make the choice at the end about whether they want to spend the night together. In the same bed.

"Do you want to spend the night with me?"

Mate.

Mate.

But heck, I might be wrong. At the end of an episode, some of them agreed to give it another go.
