Making Mr. Right mixes advice and awkward dating scenes with reality drama as the fake matchmakers help these men find potential love matches while building a pool of eligible bachelors for themselves. As tensions begin building between the cast as a result, you can't help but wonder if you should be feeling happy for these men, or be disturbed by the fact that they are putting their faith in trust in women who aren't being honest with them.

Some folks may find Making Mr. Right entertaining, while others may find some of what they see here useful when pursuing their own love lives. But the overall show feels more like a voyeuristic guilty pleasure than anything really helpful. It also offers a rather convoluted portrayal of what matchmaking is really about.
