I have seen it and your assessment is spot on...

Hmm. So they say that:

"The premise of the show is to carry out a social experiment. . .. We will couple together beautiful, socially savvy women with highly intelligent males, and through a series of challenges, see what they learn from each other. The idea is to embrace and celebrate the talent and individuality of each contestant."

I confess I've never seen the show, but the promos suggest a completely different proposition, namely: we put socially awkward nerds and outrageously stupid bimbos together and humiliate them all for your viewing pleasure!

They don't make it look like much 'learning', 'embracing' or 'celebrating' are going on at all . . .

Does anyone have any experience of the show besides my cynical observations from afar?
