Shoot me in the head...

Dreadful, dull, pathetic, pointless, sensless, fake, and exactly what I would expect from MTV's desperosity to get viewers.

A double shot at awesome!!!

I looooove this show! These twins are so hot! It is filled with drama, and entertainment! If you need twice the guilty pleasure, this is the show for you!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Like its predecessors, A Double Shot At Love plays up the hedonistic behavior that viewers have come to expect from these types of reality shows, including drunken partying, endless cat fighting, crass language, and strong sexual innuendo. Many of the contestants' rather freakish behaviors add to the circus-like atmosphere. But rather than titillating audiences, a lot of the antics come off as contrived and silly.

The Ikki twins' rather wholesome persona adds to the show's awkwardness, especially when they seem to be trying a little too hard to enjoy some of the contestants' over-the-top behavior. As a result, the show is full of voyeuristic moments that seem uncomfortably forced, despite their best efforts to be entertaining.
