All around worst show ever.

Absolutely the worst show I've seen since Spongebob Squarepants. Megan is quite possibly the most idiotic and dull person to ever get a reality tv show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

While Megan makes some mild claims about looking for love, it's clear that her interest in money is greater, and she comes across as a stereotypically greedy gold-digger looking to be maintained by a rich man. (Ironically, the contestant group challenges preconceived stereotypes about millionaires, as many of them have earned their money working hard at blue-collar jobs.)

The series clearly sends the problematic message that money can buy love .... or at least a woman's attention. It also features all of the elements that you'd expect from a reality show like this -- including lots of swearing, arguing, sexual innuendo, and drinking. Bottom line? This one isn't for kids.

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.
