NBC using models for game shows too much?
Does anyone think the eye candy is getting out of hand? It seems that almost every game show I see now has models dressed up scantily clad, with push up bras and short skirts exuding sex appeal.
Is it now MEN'S television? ...come on.....50% of the viewers are women.....
Women shouldn't have to "not mind" it or tolerate it by looking the other way. They should be able to enjoy tv shows and not feel uneasy about public television game shows. There is "SPIKE" tv for chauvanistic tv and for males viewing pleasure.
Maybe just either dont have excessive amounts of female eye candy, or ....here's a thought, make it equal and have male eye candy for the female viewers as well. Sometimes women enjoy looking at sexy men. Why can't they be in tight tank tops, showing their biceps and pecks? Why don't we ever see that, and only sexy women? I feel that is unfair and sexist.
The only show I can think of that doesn't have sexy models is "Family Feud" LOL
and there are shows like Wheel of Fortune that aren't sexist in my opinion.
Vanna White is dressed like a lady and wears evening gowns looking very elegant.
But one show that I think is totally sexist, has uneccessary provacatively dressed models, and that I don't watch because of it is "Deal or No Deal" http://www.nbc.com/Deal_or_No_Deal/playwin/dondregister.shtml
Is this a TV game show, or a competition for Playboy Magazine? Their advertisement shows 3 women wearing tight clothes showing a huge amount of cleavage. Then 3 other featured models with quotes "meet the models" "meet the upcoming models"
It doesn't look like a tv show, it looks like an adult modeling agency or dating service that has a game show on the side. Anyone kinda turned off by this sex sells image when it comes to family game shows? I know sex sells a lot and probably more so for men. But it doesn't sell me. I love game shows, but I don't watch this one cause of the objectification of women. I thought families liked to sit around and watch these type shows? Since when does family and sexy models go together?
Here is another show that I can't bring myself to watch. When it debuted, once again it was hard for me to focus on the game because they had what appeared to be go-go dancers wearing bikini tops, and short skirts. http://www.nbc.com/The_Singing_Bee/
I read that there were complaints. Viewers felt it was not only unappropriate the way they were dressed but also the way they were dancing. Hello.....we aren't in an 18+ club with go-go dancers in cages. It's a game show that families watch. Do we have to bring sexuality into everything?
The "interview with the honeybees" video made my boobs hurt just watching it. The tight skimpy outfits are so clearly meant to "enhance" their figure. The woman on the left looked like her boobs were squeezed together so hard that they were going to pop out and hit the girl next to her giving her a black eye. Does anyone that watches that video actually look at her FACE? .....I was too distracted myself. I just wouldn't feel comfortable and dont think others would either watching that show....especially say, with your 7 year old daughter. When the girls are dressed like NFL cheerleaders which are known for being over the top sexy, go-go dancers, or people say they look like "Hooters girls"....I think people will agree....its a bit MUCH.
any shorter of a skirt on honey bee"Ferly", and you can see her Kootch. Great example for young girls....as you can see on the website, there is praise from the men (of course DUH, cause its a "mans world" and the pervs need tending) and then there are complaints from the women saying the "bees" look like hooters girls with too short of skirts.
Lame show, Lame Lame Lame......I would have liked to watch this show but it blows because its yet ANOTHER show that uses sex (women) to sell.....
I watch "Dont forget the Lyrics" Instead. They are able to have a fun game show without sexy models, go go dancers, eye candy, big boobs, and short skirts....who would have thought that was possible!?!?!
