Is it just me wondering what's with all the Take Me Out threads recently?
I don't see how the programme would work if it was a load of men and a woman was brought out.
If she was really ugly then all the lights would go out straight away.
If she was average or above then all the lights would stay on. They'd play all those video clips of her family talking about her or she'd sing a song or do her 'talent' etc and the lights would still stay on. So it would be the same concept in the end, the girl choosing a man, just out of the whole lot of them.
1. Because all the gays would switch off immediatley after seeing the person come down, making half the contestants useless for possibly an entire series.
2. The average person isn't gay. I don't have a problem with homosexuality but watching two guys judge each other and probably strip/dance on tv isn't my idea of fun. Watching guys/girls judge each other in the same capacity is though.
Men wouldn't watch it if it was men and men.
Women wouldn't watch it if it was women and women.
Atm its practically ITVs flagship, they're not going to mess with its established format.
