Rock of Love spin-off is predictably sexist.

Definitely not an equal rights show

Well, there are several chauvinistic, outrageously arrogant boys on this show. They are very demeaning and very under educated. The use of the word “faggot” alone should have the show canceled or never even aired. Those guys who think that saying words like that makes them ignorant. Role models- hahahaha not sure if I’m the only one who has watched the show, but the only reason to look up to any of them would be because you are shorter than them

Total crap!

Don't even bother with this "reality show". This show is for idiots.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Like its reality TV predecessors, Daisy of Love perpetuates sexist stereotypes about men, women, and relationships by highlighting -- and sometimes rewarding -- the contestants' obnoxious behavior. Although Daisy slightly challenges this formula by clearly telling the men what she wants and what behavior she won't tolerate (like being called the "b" word), she still comes across as a ditzy blonde wearing sexy clothes designed to attract men. Worse, sidekick (and former Charm School judge) Riki Rachtman acts as her guardian of sorts, attempting to "protect" Daisy and her wounded heart from contestants who may not realize that she's serious about finding love.

The series also features the predictable strong sexual content, excessive drinking, endless arguing, and other over-the-top activities that characterize these kinds of reality shows. Some of the challenges are pretty violent, too. Bottom line? This show offers little more than some indulgent voyeuristic pleasure, and even that is best left for adults.
