Just when you thought reality television couldn’t possibly get any worse..

Along comes a show on VH1 called “The Pickup Artist.” Yes, worse than “Flavor of Love”, “I Love New York”, and even “Charm School.” The premise: a former nerd turned suave ladies man (pfftt..sorry, hehe okay let’s be serious now) takes 8 average Joes with no success in dating and promises to turn them into pickup artists too.

Okay first of all, I hate this “Mystery” guy (yeah your real name is Eric Von Markovik). I seriously think he time traveled back to 1998 and went shopping at Allston Beat where he obtained the faux-fur pimp hat, black eyeliner, black nailpolish, (umm it was cool when the Crow did it, but not when you do it), and that god-awful soul patch. And don’t get me started on how corny the whole heroin-chic skinny guys with long hair bit is..

Check out the doofy website here for a good snicker: http://www.venusianarts.com/sl/va/VenusianArts.aspx. And if you’ve got $5,000 to blow, you can take attend one of his bootcamps. Or you could give me $5 and I’ll give you my advice: get some exercise, develop your interests, be confident and be yourself. Oh and pluck the monobrow.

    You’re absolutely right, that many of the ways you can improve yourself to attract women are ridiculously simple — exercising, developing interests, etc.
    But even though it seems obvious to many men, there are some who need some hands-on ideas on how to do this — how to dress, how to groom oneself, how to spend their leisure time developing their own interests which as a result make them more interesting, etc. So while some of these ideas are basic, sometimes it helps to read what other sucessful men do, if only for inspiration in their own lives.
