What's the story?
RELATIONSHEP is an unscripted series featuring Southern Charm playboy Shep Rose as he looks for a lifelong mate. Now 37, Shep has decided to be more mature and find someone to settle down with. He travels around the country to visit his best friends who, in turn, will each introduce him to various women they think will be a good match. Those he feels will be a good potential mate get invited to stay with him in South Carolina for a few days to see if they will fit into the Southern lifestyle he is accustomed to. It's not an easy process, but it's one that Shep hopes will help him discover more about who he is, as well as find a wife.
Is it any good?
From Los Angeles to New York City, this voyeuristic series features lots of superficial banter and awkward moments as Shep Rose goes on a whirlwind of cross-country dates and then tests a few matches at home. Viewers also get to watch as producers question him about his often narcissistic decisions. While these interviews are quick, they sometimes reveal one or two moments of honest introspection.
Nonetheless, what drives Relationshep is an undercurrent of competitiveness as the women he meets are made to appear as if they hope to be invited to his Charleston home. Meanwhile, there's also the question of who will fit in to his exclusive world, and be liked by his family and local friends. It's an artificial attempt at finding an honest and sustainable relationship, and one that only Southern Charm fans may find entertaining.
