Please Marry My Boy which had a lacklustre season one is coming back to SEVEN. The producer of The Amazing Race Australia must be peeved thinking “I won an international Emmy and I can’t get it renewed but this dating show is”.
But let’s face it this is cheap TV to make.
Please Marry My Boy is a dating show where the mother gets to pick the women he should date and eventually marry. First there is the speed dating where three girls are picked to go live with the mothers. Over the weeks they go on dates with the son and in the last episode the mother picks the girl for them to “marry”.
There were no lasting relationships from season one.
This series there is only three guys and their mothers in it down from five last year. It must be difficult to find mothers and their sons both willing to go on a show.
The three contestants are:
- Brad King 27 – a buyers assistant for a camping store. He says he gets tongue tied around women. His mother Margaret King 59 who has been married for 40 years is going to help him.
- Carlo Cimino 41 – is a small business owner who previously has been married and he wants a wife to give him children. His mother Maria who is Italian is hoping he will settle down soon.
- Nathan Secomb 30 – is a model and a tradie. His mother thinks he picks the wrong type.
You get the feeling Nathan is going to be this series Tony.
Ada Nicodemou will host the show.
Please Marry My Boy is coming soon to SEVEN.

In I didn’t see this one coming but it looks like Channel Seven are considering going ahead with a second season of Please Marry My Boy.
They have announced they are looking for mother’s and sons, and single ladies looking for love.
The show rated OK for the network but maybe because it was cheap to make – no big prize money, people staying in the family home, and sponsored dates so maybe that is why they decided to have a crack at another series.
They applications are open for nearly three months until 1 March 2013, there has been no official announcement, maybe they are waiting to see what type of applicants they get before they give it the official go ahead.

Magadalena who Tony’s mum chose over Tammy Lee to “marry my boy” on Please Marry My Boy was presented as a yoga instructor on the show.
However Magdalena must be doing some modelling on the side, as she appears to be the face of Danielle in the eHarmony ad here. For those that don’t know eHarmony is a dating website.
I wonder if this means she is still single.

I received an email for a casting of the show in 2010. At that stage the show was named the dating show, at which point I was single, so I decided why not I have nothing to loose.
2. What things did you like about being on the Please Marry My Boy?
Definitely! I find it hard for people to take me seriously at times because of the way I choose to look.
I have been extremely lucky, after the show I received an endorsement deal with a clothing label. I’ve been offered contracts with sporting companies to represent them in ring sports, I’ve had small parts in movies, as well as interest with music and offers for photo-shoots for magazines.

Tony from Please Marry My Boy found himself under fire yesterday when it was revealed that he and Tammy-Lee Gluyas were doing the wild thing while the show was still filming.
Well it is a dating show, but is it fair play. I managed to have a career highlight yesterday and got to call Tony a tool on ACA.
Magdalena spoke out yesterday stating her displeasure about the hook up and also revealed that after Tammy and Tony split, Tony then rang her to ask her out. Lucky the girl has dignity and said no way.
During the final week of filming, one of the show’s “sons”, Tony Turco, was secretly sleeping with contestant Tammy Lee.
But it was not Tammy that Tony’s mum, Elva, chose. Instead, Elva had her heart set on Gold Coaster Magdalena Sujecki (pictured) and selected her as the best possible bride for her boy.
Unbeknown to Magdalena, Tammy and Tony were sneaking into each other’s hotel rooms while the last episodes were being shot in Sydney.
“It’s just wrong, they should have waited until the last episode was filmed and everyone knew their place,” Magdalena said.
Magdalena found out the pair were intimate after another contestant revealed the news to her when the show was over.
“I felt a little betrayed by Tony as I believed, coming into the family home, we had all built a great deal of respect for each other.”
Although Magdalena technically “won” the show, Tony made it clear he would not pursue any relationship with her.
“I went to talk to Tammy when Tony’s mum picked me and as soon as I sat down she said ‘You should talk to Tony he has something to tell you’.”
“So I went up to the bar and asked Tony and he said he didn’t want to talk about it.
“But I was really thinking about giving it a go with him after the show until he said ‘My mum might have picked you but I chose Tammy’.”
The rejection was a blow to Magdalena but not as much of a disappointment as learning they had been sleeping together.
Although Tony and Tammy dated after the show, the relationship did not last and Tony was quick to get in touch with Magdalena.
“I think he has learnt a big lesson from all this,” she said. “I won’t play second fiddle to anyone.”
Personally I think Magdalena dodged a bullet.
