    The show on the last couple of airings has turned into filth. It is all about sex and the pelvic area and is sick, no one here will ever watch again. Too bad the can’t film a clean show about dating and finding the right one. Makes you wonder about the person that decides what is going to happen on the shows. Should be rated XXX. Filthy, just filthy. It sends out the message that it is all about the sex and how to do it. Hate the show.
