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

Pitting women against women in competition for a man and basing everything on whether or not the older ones are as attractive as their younger counterparts sends some pretty questionable messages about body image and what matters in a mate. In some ways, the show is designed to favor the older women, who -- while contending with wrinkles and kids (one has a son almost as old as Philippoussis) -- come off as much more intelligent and secure than the silly, catty twentysomethings. But all in all, this show doesn't accomplish much besides perpetuating sexist stereotypes, and kids, teens, and probably even adults should stay away.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
