Forget the Bachelor, watch A Basement Affair
There are two reasons this is my favorite dating show in a while. First they are not in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills or a resort in Hawaii. Instead all 15 women are staying in Frank's parents house. They ladies are crammed into three guest rooms: the blue "boys" room, the pink "girls" room, and "grandma's" room. The girls and boys rooms are decorated like a model home, while grandma's room is lacy and very Jesusy.
The second reason I love this show is the real star: Frank's mom. She's a ball-busting New York Italian mother who is very loud and opinionated. She is around all the time and sits by during elimination, when Frank gives out keys to his basement to those who stay around for another episode. This is was Mama's Boy should have been, but it kinda sucked. I love Frank's mom.
So if you think about watching The Bachelor, check this out instead.
