MARRIED BY AMERICA

Indecent proposal? "People usually find love and marriage in the traditional way. You meet, fall in love and tie the knot...What if there's a better way? MARRIED BY AMERICA (tentative title) is a groundbreaking reality-based show that invites the viewing audience to be your personal matchmaker." How else would you expect beautiful people to meet?

They'll be doing a secondary virginity show next. What you do, see, is...

This isn't necessarily a terrible idea. In relationships, our friends and acquaintances often see things that we're too twitterpated to notice -- things that could make us miserable once things become real.

It's possible -- assuming that the audience was given the real scoop instead of the dramatically edited half-truths of most "reality" shows -- that people would be able to make a pretty good match.

Let me know when they do the show to find a guy a smart, funny, well-read woman to bum around the world on a sailboat with.

There's already a show like this in the UK, I forget what it's called. It's actually quite good! Suitable partners are chosen by friends/family, who then move in with the protagonist for a short while. Very entertaining.
