Mystery J Dog kosmo and Matador of the Pick up artist on vh1You heard it here first! It has been a long time coming but a second season of “The Pickup Artist” is finally confirmed with an article by Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts on the Washington Post web site.

Apparently Mystery and a VH1 producer were scouting out Washington D.C. bars on Saturday night to see if it could be the potential setting for the second season of The Pick Up Artist on VH1. If you recall, season one was based in Austin, Texas.

Maybe after seeing the Halloween Saturday Night Live skit, Mystery should hit up Bill Clinton in regards to the sarging potential of the Nation’s capitol.

Here is the full text regarding Mystery of Venusian Arts:

Hey, isn’t that “Mystery,” a.k.a. Erik von Markovik, that creepy guy from the VH-1 show “The Pick-Up Artist,” exercising his charms in the second-floor bar at Madam’s Organ Saturday night. The 6-foot-6 swordsman (who also inspired the seduction how-to book “The Game“) came in wearing aviator glasses, a full-length fur coat and his hair in a bun; left shortly before closing “with four to six women,” said a spy. (Lucky girls.) His wingman, supposedly a VH-1 producer, told folks at the bar they were checking out D.C.’s pick-up potential.

There it is! I may have crossed the t’s and dotted the i’s but if that isn’t proof that there will be a season 2 from a reliable source I don’t know what is.

I have a feeling it will shoot in late Spring or early Summer and air about the same time it did last year. If they do not have their contestants already I would expect them to have auditions real soon.

    I think that gives a favorable indicator, but keep in mind this is coming from an unnamed “spy”, and the guy he is was with is described as a “supposedly” being a VH1 producer.

    If true, I’m curious to see if they pick DC. From everything I’ve heard about the place from my buddy who lives there, it doesn’t have a lot of the club/party girl types, more intellectuals. It would be a different pool of women than the ones in Austin!

    I’ve heard rumors of a second season continuously since back in October.

    If you are waiting for VH1, Mystery or anyone related to the series to give a definite yes you are going to be waiting until filming wraps.

    This is because of the nature of the show. It is like when Ashton Kutcher claimed there would be no more seasons of “Punk’d” in order to catch celebrities off guard.

    Similarly, production of the second season of “The Pick Up Artist” will be easier if women are caught off guard.

    I’ve been to D.C. as a teen. I haven’t heard anything good about the city. It would be interesting to hear what other cities they are scouting out.

    They need to do some serious reinventing to keep the show interesting. Cuz truthfully if its the same as last year i probably won’t even watch. although i admit im happy its coming back.

    From a PUA standpoint, another season is bad for business. From a seduction blogger standpoint, another season is good for business.

    There’s sure to be changes. Watching it will be at the very least a good “defense” if you went through what many of us did last fall.

    Yo, I was excited as heck by this news but Rio is right, they have got to change some things. I’ve got to see some more from the coaches infield. I’m sick of hearing of how Matador cavemen’s all these women or how J-pup is a day game master. We have a saying in the midwest,”put up or shut up.” No more credit boys, it’s time to see what’s in your bank account besides some Afc’s summer mowing stash! I also believe they may want to get rid of the stupid reality show procedure of eliminations. I think for season 3 we should all audition with weakness, isn’t that right Tight?. Look out for the lucky one!

    I’m curious to see if DC is going to be picked. From everything I’ve heard about that place from a friend who lives there, it doesn’t have a lot fun over there

    “From a PUA standpoint, another season is bad for business. .”

    I was reall y wishing it would die a quiet death, but I have feeling the show will end up like fuckin’ COPS…. “see Mystery in DC…see Mystery in Denver…See Mystery in St,. Paul…etc” …..Realistically, I can’t see them doing the show in Los Angeles, New york or Chicago or San Fran, too many PUA communities there (although DC has a pretty strong one)

    I think what will happen is that Tony Robbins will team up with Mystery and form this massive self help conglomerate (why not, they damn near look the same) that will be traded on the stock exchange or something… then Mystery will come out with some PUA clothing line they will sell at Target… when that happens PUA will be truly dead….

    The only way this exposre will end is if mystery got busted for doing heroin or something, or got AIDS from banging some uber whore from Thailand..

    I’m from the Midwest too (Milwaukee). Our saying here is “put out or get out” :) Anyway, I like your idea of us being on the show all crippled like Harrison Bergeron.

    Your comment is fucking hilarious. Love the Cops and Target PUA clothing references.

    Is there something wrong with me that I don’t know what Tony Robbins looks like?

    In addition to the location question, some of the other open questions I’m curious about include:

    - Will Mystery again have wingmen and who will they be?

    - Will they be teaching the exact same routines and lines as the first show?

    - Will they pick a rag tag bunch of AFC’s as the contestants like last time, or will they maybe take some guys experienced in the game? (The latter would be far more interesting to me)

    - Have Mystery’s teachings evolved to incorporate natural/inner/direct game principles?

    Here’s my input about your questions:


    Matador was used in the show because he is a good speaker, relatively good looking and adds ethnic diversity. I’m sure he’ll be back.

    J Dog got very little air time on the show and it will be interesting to see if they bring him back.

    I would like to see Lovedrop. He is rumored to be the brains behind VA’s operation. Sure he is not the most photogenic PUA but I think he deserves some camera time nonetheless.

    Same routines-

    When you look at season 1 they really didn’t go too deep into the MM. I’m sure they’ll go a bit deeper this season with new material.


    It is obvious the final two for season one (Brady and Kosmo) were “ringers”. I would expect a couple more ringers for season two.

    Because of the nature of VA and the show I doubt they will bring in established PUAs. VA wants to make names for these guys and put them on the VA seminar/bootcamp circuit to make money.

    You are not going to see instructors from different pick up camps competing against each other especially when the show is hosted by a instructor of a particular camp. There is too much for them to lose and Mystery would be dumb to even give them the opportunity to shine.

    It was nice to see Cajun on Keys to the VIP but you have to remember it was him versus his cousin. No matter what MM/LS wins.

    I could see a Pick Up Artist All-Stars after a few seasons though.

    Mystery’s Teachings Evolving-

    Mystery would be smart to slip in a few natural game techniques. The natural game gurus have been hammering at him for some time. If he added a few simple natural game elements it would take away their ammunition.

    Either that or he should retaliate against natural game on the show. In a recent interview I heard Mehow defend routine based game in one simple sentence by saying that ALL game, even natural, uses routines if you want to call them that or not.

    Mystery is the man and he can do whatever he wants with the PUA community being how he was the one to build it from the bottom up, its only right he cashes in.
