While this Big Brother-like series is ostensibly a contest for money, the show is really about using sex as a way to stay in the competition and finding out who has sex with whom. The show lacks any real dialogue, and while the contestants may be physically attractive, their narcissism hardly makes them likable -- especially when they're sharing their thoughts about how good looking they are. Their constant drinking, gossiping, and other self-indulgent activities aren't appealing either. In fact, some of their behavior is downright sleazy, especially when they use sex as a way to avoid elimination.

All of that said, it's not just the endless sexual exploits and alcohol consumption that makes this show a poor viewing choice for kids. It's really how these activities are being used to gain a competitive edge that makes it a reality train wreck. While the contestants' underhanded maneuverings and strategic sexual exploits may provide some adults with a bit of guilty entertainment, there's no good reason to expose kids to it.
