Dont get me started on "Take Me Out". No likey! No lighty!

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Don?t get me started on Take Me Out. No likey! No lighty! Are the few most annoying words to pierce my ear drums on a Saturday evening. Guessed what I?m talking about yet? Correct, ITV?s ?Take Me Out?. Evening television in the UK is already deteriorating dramatically, though we have now officially hit rock bottom. This show is nearly as full of fake tan and big hair as ?The only way is Essex?, though it?s slightly odd how the producers decided to send the couples, to a make believe island: The Island of Fernado.

The only ones who benefit from this show are the saloons and make-up companies which are extremely popular when the girls are getting ready. Apparently the camera makes you look pale, so how much fake tan are they actually wearing? Anyway the day we see 30 orange crayons walking around we will know where they are headed; to the magical, though make believe ?Island of Fernando?! ...read more.
