There’s this thing I say, which is both a joke and a serious belief: I’d love to go back to the UK just to watch the many reality shows around the country. It looks like they’ve bottled up the magic of what makes a reality TV show harmless, to the point where they collectively produce some great music videos. Here’s the latest, courtesy of Channel 4 The trap of love.
This is just a perfectly constructed clip, and my applause goes to everyone involved in the production. Shock is obviously the goal, and David’s reaction is priceless. There was no way he knew this was going to happen.
It’s such a crazy thing to do on a dating show. If all you know is this clip, you first spend some time thinking about how David has to guess who is a “love trap,” which is already one of those concepts creative enough to be new without being. inherently interesting. (It’s still inherently better than the new Netflix show Sexy Beasts.) The fact that one candidate literally fell down a hole is such a twist in the story and the genre! I just can’t get over it.
tl; dr: Please watch this clip from the UK reality show The trap of love.
