Please Marry My Boy – Some Of Those Mothers Look Like Nightmares
It is the chicken or the egg question for the contestants on Please Marry My Boy, is it the mothers or the sons that is the obstacle in their ability to find a partner?
Take Melina for instance who appears to have swallowed the Cardamones Handbook on how to raise your son and does everything for him. Vlad who is thirty is still living at home and it does not appear to be for financial reasons. Seriously this guy is not a catch he will have really bad expectations on what a wife does for him. Also Malina would be a nightmare mother-in-law.
Also she is fixated on hooking him up with a Serbian girl so I suspect she is going to be very blinkered when it comes to picking the dates for her son.
The other mother who would be difficult to get on with would be Karen Kenny and you wonder if the reason her son Matt has not found a girl is that her domineering personality has meant he has not developed his own. What is interesting is that Karen in the speed dating appeared to want a daughter that was similar to her.
At the My Kitchen Rules launch yesterday I asked both mother and son why this was. Matt said his mother wanted a friend to get on with. Not sure two strong personalities would gel.
Also Karen said she wanted someone like her with strong morals and values which also included good manners. I did query where the “sex” question fitted into this considering it was quite rude and she did admit it was a “mistake”.
Anyway the episode started off with the mothers and son’s speed dating ten women each, and they could not complain about the quality of the girls the majority were good looking, articulate and personable.
Malina and Vlad – Vlad does not appear to be a catch, sure he is ok looking but the overbearing mother has clearly had an effect on him.
Also if you are not Serbian chances are you are not going to be good enough, and she does everything for his son. At thirty he still lives at home. He has never been in love.
Like a lot of guys Vlad’s eyes were boggling at the over the top sexy girls. He particularly liked the girl who could do some clenching manoeuvre with her breasts.
Also there was the catholic topless waitress who said she was going to “wait” until she was married. Would you really want to be with someone who was flaunting to everyone but yourself? Also appeared to be a strange set of values. Milena was probably right in saying no way to that one.
Vlad liked Liz the best.
However Malina picked the Serbian Andrea, Contanza, and Jackie. Jackie showing she was on the show to find love not to have her 15 minutes of fame had picked up the vibes about the mother and son and wanted to get out of there fast. She declined to go to Adelaide. A very wise decision.
In the end Malina selected Liz to go to Adelaide.
Elva and Tony – Tony is 35 year old man-child. Even his mother admits he is shallow. In fact I wonder how Tony turned into such a tool with a mother who appeared to be very likeable indeed.
Tony was like a little kid anyone one with a bit of sparkle, well in this case peroxide blond hair and a mini skirt would attract his attention. Thankfully his mother is scathing of this approach.
However he did have the kooky Alex, the 40 year old tarot card reader who had never been in a long term relationship to contend with. She told him he would be moving away from his mother and he looked shocked.
Tony picked Tammy-Lee the 30 year-old model as his favourite. Her childhood ambition was to be barbie doll so just maybe he can be her Ken.
Elva picked Sarah, Magadalena and Tammy Lee.
Karen and Matt – Matt is a cute guy, but he does have a touch of the bland about him. His Mother thinks he attracts floozies. Karen appeared to be enjoying being on a reality TV show experience and was making it all about her. She would think of herself as scary I would probably just call her brash.
One of her questions she asked was how many times one of the girls has had sex. Koa answered more then five less then ten. I take it that was the number of guys she had slept with. I am not sure what that information tells you about a person. It may indicate that Karen has a bit of a double standard in this area.
Amand the Swedish student is smitten with Matt. However Josie is on a student visa and Mum was worried that she would take off back to her homeland. What she did not add in was the possibility she may take her son with her.
Karen picked Lydal, Amanda, and Koa to move in with her.
Anne and Brendan – This was the nicest pair and the pick of the mothers and the sons. However he was having a hard time being seen as a love interest by the girls as his nickname is Frendan. Yes nice guys do finish last.
Anna fitness instructor charmed Anne and she selected her as one of her three. The other two were another Anna, and Edwina.
Brendan just be the one who may find love on the show.
Who did you like? Who do you think has the best chance of finding love? And would you marry any of these boys?
