Yes, I told you so!
I could not have written a better obituary for the marriage of Jaimie and… what was his name, if I had seen the script! Was it a lift from an old Woody Allen movie, surely?? Burly and rugged Queensland ‘fifo’ turns out to be an ‘alleged’ drug trafficker and ‘alleged" serious organised crime member and the defendant in proceedings commenced by Queensland authorities before the show went to air. He was such a charmer... I knew it the minute I laid eyes on him!
Yes, they could not see a future together... hummm...
Any man who ‘allegedly’ doesn’t wash his hands after ‘allegedly’ going to the bathroom has to be! Right?? On a serious note, how many celebrity commentators were quick to fly to his defence and troll Jaimie, accusing her of PPS, “Precious Princess Syndrome”. Get real, this match was a prefabricated train wreck from its very inception.
Well done to the MAFS production team for their impeccable due diligence.
Let’s face it, the real gong must go to the clueless trio otherwise known as the “Experts”. Matching a well educated and successful marketing executive with the Neanderthal boofhead who is now an unwilling participant in the Queensland criminal justice system. This will go down as one of the great MAFS fuck ups of all time. Yes, and do you recall the sage advice offered by chief schmuck John Aiken on the couch of commitment, to ‘get vulnerable’?
I recently asked convicted mobster Paul Vidi about his experience with John Aiken (who was a Billy Crystal look-a-like before the plastic surgery). Apparently he matched Paul with a science professor at Harvard. He was very impressed with John so it's not all bad news.
I must confess that it is getting harder and harder to write about this series. The appalling plot, mixed with the dialogue of the uneducated mediocrity has almost overwhelmed me. Am I the only one who is shocked by the incredible fall in the standards of grammar and English expression? Why are these programs so popular? Are we obsessed with voyeuristic curiosity compelling us to explore the intimate and private relationships of complete strangers. The social equation seems to be MAFS participants allow themselves to be exposed, embarrassed and or humiliated on National Television in return for achieving “C Grade” celebrity status, complete with blue ticks and insta discount codes.
This feeds into the Daily Mail’s narrative and insatiable appetite for bikini clad space cadets and tattooed beefcake gossip stories. This is a truly sad indictment of popular culture and taste.
Oh well... dinner is served... you tell 'em Agador Spartacus!
As with other reality TV offerings, it's about this stage of the proceedings that I take the opportunity to assist those who speak English to more readily understand the dialect that is used in the MAFS series. I have prepared a “Glossary of Terms” and phrases so you will be able to follow the bouncing ball much more easily. Remember most of the participants including at least one of the ‘Experts’ speaks English as a second language.
