Please Marry My Boy – Well The Plot Line For Milena Was Predictable
Well one plot line was predictable on Please Marry My Boy last night with Milena picking Andrea to be her son’s Vlad wife. It would not have mattered if Andrea had said to her “I am in fact a lesbian”, the mum would have picked the Serbian 22 year old.
Props to Liz for having a crack at Milena by saying “you opened your house but not your heart”. It does raise the issue of reverse racism, because as many commenters have raised if an anglo had said something like that on national tv they would have been villified for it. Perhaps Milena has been also.
Whether marriages between people of the same cultural background more successful then mixed ones is a debate that could be had. However I think in Australia in 2012 her views are definitely out of step with what the community thinks.
However the reason Vlad is still single could be him as well as his mum. He appears to have communication issues with women if this fracas on Facebook is anything to go by.
Matt’s mum Karen picked Amanda, and this could be the one relationship that does last. It was the bland meeting the bland.
It was surprising that Anne picked little Anna for Brendan, which shows that bold saucy girls don’t finish last after the nice girl. Edwina was what a lot of mothers might pick for their sons. She was beautiful, sweet, intelligent but just slightly contained. As mother-in-law’s go Anne would be a good one.
Interesting to know if Brendan and Anna are still seeing each other.
Lastly the delightful Alva picked Magdalena for her superficial son Tony. However I thought Tammy-Lee nearly got herself over the line with her speech about how she should not be judged on how she looks and that she did like Tony and would be a good wife. I suspect Tony who sees himself as a player will remain a player.
Fans of the show will have to wait to see if any of the boys have stuck with the girls. This should come out in the mainstream media in the coming week.
