Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4):

From building rafts to fighting off snakes in the jungle, this eco-dating competition offers viewers a voyeuristic chance to see how folks get to know each other in rather extreme circumstances. It uses teamwork as a way to help contestants connect with potential mates, and it also highlights the awkwardness that comes from being rejected.

The location may be exotic, but the show looks a lot like any other dating competition thanks to challenges that require couples to kiss and cohabitate, plus suggestive images of couples in bed under the covers. Occasional catty behavior and arguments between contestants only add to this. If you like this sort of thing, it's decently entertaining, but overall it sends confusing messages about dating and relationships.
