Cancel 0 Miss Advised is one of the most terrifying reality shows on television. Oh, the delicious irony! By golly, I think there might be a show in here. Amy is… a little bit unhinged. She twitches with nervous energy and likes to wear ugly berets out in public. She also has a full-blown eating disorder, which comes to the surface when she goes out to dinner. On one episode, Amy is on a date with this dude who appears to have no interest in her, other than being on television, and nearly has a heart attack when he suggests they order the chicken pot pie.
Again, Amy nearly has a heart attack and beckons the waiter. I know this is strange to ask but can I not have whipped cream? When her hot chocolate arrives sans whipped cream, she sips it with blind terror.
In her eyes though, this is her making progress. We met at Whole Foods in front of the kale aisle. I need you, Jeff. Meet Julia Allison, one of the most hated girls on the internet, who naturally has landed herself a reality show. I have to admit that I only knew of her vaguely before the show aired, so I was going into the show with an open heart, mind, and blog.
Julia approaches men with fervor and they seem to be completely terrified of her. On all of her dates, she basically mauls them and begs for a kiss. Julia needs to behave extreme at all times, which means laughing maniacally and screaming things at her dates, as they start running for the exit.
She seems to display some manic tendencies. She hosts a radio show in San Francisco and doles out sex advice to strangers. You always need a Greek chorus on a reality show, someone who is thinking and feeling the same things as the viewers, and Emily would be that. For all of its progressive quirks and charms, Bravo has done a real disservice to women with this show. Julia and Amy might make for good TV but their antics reinforce the same, sad stereotypes about single women, and for that, this show seems sorely misadvised.
