Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Creating a false identity on a reality show isn't particularly new, but the fact that these millionaires are going out of their way to lie for purely selfish reasons makes them difficult to like. Although they aren't malicious in their intent, the fact that they justify lying to someone who doesn't have money to learn how to trust them sends troubling messages.

There are some eyebrow-raising moments, especially when these rich singles appear completely out of touch with how the average person lives. Some of these folks aren't very good at keeping their covers, either, which creates some odd tension. Overall, this series offers few positive messages about honesty, trust, or building positive relationships.
