I'll say this. Reality TV is not meant for straight men. But, every now and then, they really do try to make a push into guys-who-dig-girls territory. It's generally a big fail because their hearts not in it, and guys really don't care much for overly-made-up drunken middle aged train wrecks (well, okay, some guys do love that drama), but they keep pushing, and occasionally we do take note. Like Gretchen Rossi from Real Housewives of Orange Country.
When Bravo found out that not a single guy who watches football was watching their show, they brought in Gretchen who is ten years young and has a hotter body than anybody else on the show. Then they put her in lots of skimpy outfits and called it a 'male strategy'. Is it working? Not so much on the TV numbers, but when they do their promotional shoots by the beach, I must admit, I still peek. I'm a guy. I have reflexes. Enjoy.
