BUT there is one problem with the best show in the universe. The dates are unrealistic. They're too fancy schmancy. I can tell you that my husband has NEVER taken me on a helicopter ride. Ever. Not once. Not even on a wedding anniversary. He also doesn't take me on boats and where does this endless supply of champagne come from? I didn't even know you could get massages in a creek. So, The Madisons have devised a list of real dates the Bachelor should take his girlfriends on. We think that these would provide a far greater insight into the compatibility between two people.
The Real Flight Date - Two people, one baby, economy class for fourteen hours.
The Real Wealth Date - Two people, twenty bucks between you, a day to fill.
The Gastro Date - Two adults, two kids, vomit everywhere.
The One Drunk Unit Date - Two adults, only one allowed to drink. That one must drink until completely inebriated then the other one has to look after them. Switch for the next date.
Setting up a Tent Date - Two people, one tent. No instructions.
The Monopoly Date - Two people, four relatives, one Monopoly board.
The Ant infestation Date - Two people, one cupboard, three thousand ants.
The Dog has Diarrhoea Date - Two people, one house, one dog with diarrhoea.
The Grocery Shopping Date - Two adults, four children, two goats, one supermarket in peak hour, one list and a strict budget.
The In-laws live in England Date - One house, two people, two in-laws, two months.
Cleaning the House Date - Two people, one shithole of a house, one hour until dinner guests arrive.
