Blog Post: Please Marry My Boy – To Marry Do You Have To Be A Housewife?

Please Marry My Boy reinforced gender stereotypes last night with the girls competing to get a date with their guy in a cooking competition.

Apparently to get married you have to want to be a good housewife. I must have missed THAT memo.

In Milena even reiterated the point by saying Vlad can’t cook cabbage rolls so needs someone to do it for him. What Vlad needs is a housekeeper, also won’t Milena be around at his house all the time anyway probably bringing the said cabbage rolls, as no one will know how to look after him as well as she does.

Little Anna won another date with Brendan, which went very well,  and she crept out to spend the night with him in the granny flat. I really like his mum Anne she was trying not to laugh about it.

Magadalena won the meatloaf cook-off to get a date with Tony and they had a bit of a snog.

Even though Milena was trying to prod Vlad into picking Andrea’s cabbage rolls he chose Liz and they did appear to get on.

Also Matt picked Lyndle and he took her to his caravan which was made up to be a Morrocan Tent, however the dinner he cooked was chicken stir-fry and chocolate fondue. This guy is a bit bland, maybe because he has been brow beaten by his mum, Karen. She appears to have particular ideas of what a lady is when in fact she is not one herself.

What is the next test for these poor girls?

Whether they can endure a drunken thrashing on Friday night?

Ah a bit harsh BDD!

Yeah this show is an absolute joke, I mean why would Vlad even NEED a wife to cook that, he has his mum and its obvious she does not want to be replaced.

What I dont get about this show is that its not like these guys are ‘The Bachelor’ quality (good-looking, rich etc) they are just really average. I mean what girl is going to want a guy living in a caravan or shed? Is anyone seeing what I cant see about these guys?

When’s the ‘devil in the bedroom’ competition start?
Plus the child-bearing hips competition?

Huh? Meatloaf competition? Did I read that correct?

Hands up which guys out there actually like meatloaf – the greyest, saddest meal ever created on both an aesthetic and culinary basis.

The ultimate passive-aggressive revenge dish of the disgruntled housewife or mum. A form of spousal abuse (or if served to kids, child abuse). Probably best served cold. Smothered in packet gravy (no jus please). With a side of cabbage that’s stewed in its own juices for over an hour.

You’ve lost me….was this show supposed to be something other than misogynistic?

Yes Rob, vile – up to producers/writers – not so romantic mocking women to do a cooking competition – very childish – noted, 3 had nice dates out and one in a caravan under tarp on mum’s yard, yuk

Vlad Milat and his mum – Serbian Chetnik’s
Brendan Nancy – would feel better if he came out
Tony Hedonist – as self-centered as a bullseye and no-one has ever said ‘no’ to him
Matty Lad – may find a woman after Karen passes away

My God Milena get a life! And pluck up the courage to cut the umbilical cord before we all expire from cringing! Seriously are there still mothers out there in the 21st century like her? And if that Andrea had any self-respect she would have high-tailed it out of there tonight with how Milena humiliated her! Fancy any mother thinking they have the right to choose their son’s partner! Yuk!! But anyway going by the previews of next weeks show Andrea finally leaves the old girl high & dry, thank goodness! Run girl & don’t look back!
