As far as reality dating shows, this one is certainly not the worst. The bachelor, 30 year-old Mark Philippoussis is certainly no slouch when it comes to the appearance category. Personality, however......well, that is still up in the air. Mark is a formally top-ranked pro tennis player, and has been linked to certain celebrities. He has also only dated younger women in the past. The premise of the show is to pit older women against ladies half their age to win Mark's affection. Kittens vs. Cougars. Predictable? Absolutely.
Mark has no idea that "Age of Love" is anything but a normal reality dating show. This comes to an end when Mark meets the first seven women. All of them are at least 9 years older than Mark, ranging from 39 years of age to 48. Mark's first impression can only be described as stunned.
In an "extraordinary twist", the twenty-somethings are brought in. Hot, self-absorbed, and not very bright. Stereotypical editing by the producers has you rooting for the Cougars. Other than the age factor, "Age of Love" could be mistaken for "The Bachelor". There is definitely no shortage of cat fights and tears with this show. If you are extremely bored, and have nothing else to watch on Monday nights, then this is a good way to pass the evening.
