VH1 “The Pick Up Artist” Ratings and Reviews Update

Previously I was concerned about The Pick Up Artist ratings, but things are looking better based on Thundercat’s recent post.   Apparently there is already talks of another season and/or a spin-off.

I personally am having a problem getting into the show.   90% of the screen time is devoted to the contestants and I find them all quite annoying.  Mystery is a very captivating speaker and is truly a leader in the field of seduction if not the best but he is watered down in this show.  Matador and J Dog seem like they would be interesting if they were allowed to speak.  Instead we get an hour of Pradeep whining like a bitch and Kosmo acting like a fucking spazz.

Each episode Mystery introduces a new pick up concept that I am already familiar with.  You get random bits and pieces of the students learning the technique but you get more of the students talking to the camera about how powerful and amazing the technique is.  No shit.

The show is basically the The Apprentice but with pick up artists.  I guess I am a dumb ass for expecting anything different.

Some may enjoy watching these AFC’s progress to PUA’s in front of their eyes.  I just feel like Pee-Wee Herman when he leaves the drive-in movie about his own life at the end of Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure; I don’t have to watch the show because I LIVED the show myself.  I learned and went through the same struggles and progressions these contestants are going through.

There are some good reviews online for episode 4 by other bloggers.  I specifically enjoy reading Thundercat’s reviews.

Also the Venusian Arts, the company Mystery and Matador are a part of, just released the Venusian Arts Revelation ebook and DVD program. Check out our review…

    Hey Mack,

    Agree that the show could be MUCH better! Instead of opting to create an interesting show about 8 guys PUA journey, they decided to showcase things which really don’t help anybody.

    Maybe we can hope if they have a season 2, they’ll eliminate the stupid “contetst” angle of it!

    Thanks for the comment Scott. I agree.

    Bobby Rio,
    I couldn’t find the mention in the post either now, somewhere in that post it mentioned the Venusian Arts guys talking about a season 2 and/or a spin-off.

    I have heard within the past week from one of my insiders that they are considering a season 2 but there is nothing set in stone at this time. Apparently the ratings did go up since the first episode. It overall doesn’t sound too promising based on my interpretation.

    My insider also knows who wins but would only tell me that “who wins will surprise you”. I thought Pradeep immediately but I was obviously wrong.

    Yea, I think the show would have been much better had they focused on the journey and transformation more than the competition part of the show. I realize this the standard reality show format but I don’t think it fits with the community.

    Also, I have to say that the best part about the whole series are the field tests with the commentary by Mystery, Matador and Jdog. I could honestly watch hours of that. By far the best part of the show.

    Hey Matt, thanks for the comment!

    I agree, other than the annoying disclaimer in the beginning, the field tests and the commentary is by far the best part of the show. It is too bad that they don’t show more of it.

    It’s casual,
