Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

We're not sure whether the members of this group are truly the "Most Eligible" singles in Dallas. But they're definitely in the running for "Most Vapid," "Most Shallow," and "Most Narcissistic." And the not-so-funny thing is, the men are among the worst when it comes to body image, physical insecurities, and potentially dangerous dieting.

Want examples? Just juxtapose NFL punter Glenn's preferred method for slimming down ("I'll just basically starve myself for a couple of days and do three, four cardio sessions every hour," he admits) with weight-conscious Drew's complicated regimen of daily hormone injections and what he describes as a "500-calorie-a-day-diet," combined with gastric bypass surgery, a tummy tuck, and a chest reduction. Whatever's fueling the trend of reality shows set in Texas, we sincerely hope Most Eligible Houston isn't next.

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.
