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.

I love love and like to see shows that helps other find love. I feel with this show it could help their contestant more as they don’t really develop the skills they need to have the relationship they came on the show to have. Also grammatically, when the host says, “the number of matches is”, isn’t correct. It is, “the number of matches are”. I think he could also show more empathy. It is great that the contestants so far have won the money as it helped to ease their suffering around their lack of relationship growth. Contestants on this show are trusting this process and it is awesome to see development in them. It is upsetting to be witnessing domestic violence. I wish the best to the contestants and hope the process has helped them.

Brainless mind gunk

Don't let your children ever watch this unless you want them turning out a mindless unintelligent individual, driven by sexual endeavours and the lust for irrelevant gossip. I'd instead recommend a good book or factual documentary.
