Ladette to Lady – Episode 1 –
What in the hell is sexual incontinence? Mrs Brewer the etiquette teacher in an interview with Sky asked about her sexual incontinence.
I thought what is that? Did I miss something when the girl was urinating behind the bus? But apparently the sexual incontinence occurred when Sky pashed Zoe at the cocktail party. It means lacking in restraint.
I think I will try and drop it into a sentence this week.
Now who was the girl peeing behind the bus with the full stream seen on camera? She will never live that down.
Ladette to Lady Australia premiered tonight on Channel 9. It is an exact replica of the english version, where the teachers at Eggleston Hall try to turn ladettes into ladies. Each episode a girl is eliminated until only three are left and they participate in a debutante type ball and one of them is named a winner. I think the only prize is the title.
With the English version of the show I had a love hate relationship due to a couple of factors.
Firstly do the people at Eggleston Hall really think they can adequately treat girls with severe alcohol problems? Some of these girls are alcoholics. Which is probably why they are picked as the producers know as soon as the booze comes out they will get some great footage eg Sky pashing Zoe.
The other reason I have an issues with the show is the assumption that knowing how to arrange flowers, mixing the right cocktail and cooking and serving food to men is what a lady should aspire to.
Having voiced my objections I know I will still be tuning in each week, if this episode is anything to go by, and really it is just a reality TV show with all the normal manipulations that occur within this genre.
Tonight’s episode was really Sky’s show as she showed just how bad she could be. Now if this had been a genuine “worst girl goes home, Sky would have been the one to leave.
But you knew she was not going to be gone due to the amount of footage they are getting out of her. Zoe one of the girls with a drinking issue was also kept in because of entertainment value.
After all the screen time Zoe and Sky received we barely got to see the other ladettes. Sarah Brunton the electrician wanted to go on the show to learn more feminine ways. She is the eldest of the ladettes and I wonder how she handled being stuck with out of control early 20’s girls. The Sun Herald reported that Sarah had been coached in the ways of reality TV by former Big brother reality star Tom Brunero. So I don’t expect to see excessive drinking, chundering, stripping or making to much of a dick of herself. She will leave that up to the other girls.
Maria the girl who was eliminated tonight barely received any TV time. In fact I find it a bit ironic but the best behaved ladette was sent home. Hopefully in tomorrow night’s episode we will get to see more of the girls we did not see tonight.
Channel 9 are on a winner and they know it. That is why they are advertising for contestants for series 2.
