What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that sexual innuendos and references are common. There are power trips between the men on the show as they prey on an unsuspecting female -- which makes this dating show very animalistic. The game is won when the date is invited in by the young lady.
What's the story?
In WANNA COME IN?, guys who have trouble getting dates are coached by dating gurus who help dress them right and set them up with girls. The \"duds\" often lack confidence, which the \"studs\" promise to give them when they offer direction during the duds' dates via an ear transmitter. All of this is done in the name of a cash reward and the \"status\" of being cool.
Is it any good?
Wanna Come In? champions a certain type of creepy guy who believes a few smooth words and all the right moves make him a stud. Granted, some people are more socially graceful than others, and the advice given to the duds isn't always terrible. But what about the women here? True, they volunteer to go on dates, saying things like, "I'm a really fun date because...," which sets them up to be categorized.
The fact that the dates are being lorded over by a hidden "stud" who watches every move, listens to each word, and does it for money, makes the skin crawl. It's a less-than-desirable introduction to the world of dating for young teens. Wanna Come In? is beyond awful -- it's dangerous. Getting into your date's house -- or, worse, allowing your date into your home -- doesn't represent cool, and it certainly doesn't guarantee safety.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the objectification of women and how this is glorified. Who really wins in a game show/dating show like this? Does this set up help or hinder confidence and self esteem?
