Latest small screen obsession: Age of Love!

Omg I could go on for hours about how much I love this show! I don't really know what it is about Age of Love (or Mark Philippoussis' Age of Love as it's formally known) that I love so much, but if you've never watched it I would highly recommend giving it a go (although those who are against all those reality tv shows involving large groups of women competing for one mans heart, should steer clear).
The basic plot is Mark Philippoussis is an Australian tennis star (not to mention notorious playboy) looking for love. At first, he thought this was going to be easy, believing that he was about to be sharing this experience with 7 hot young women. But considering this show is called Age of Love, we, as the audience, already knew there was more to it than that. Mark is introduced to the women who'll be competing for his heart. They're all in their 40s (except one woman who's 39).
And then, as if things weren't complicated enough, the second bunch of contestants are introduced. They're all in their 20s. And now it's survival of the fittest, with the 40s (aka the Cougars) and the 20s (aka the Kittens) doing whatever they can to sabotage their opponents chances at becoming the last woman standing.
Oh and I can't forget the heartbreaking way they've set up elimination. Well, I guess you'll just have to see it to find out. ;-)
It's trashy reality TV at its best.

Mark Philippoussis' Age of Love Thursdays 9.30 Channel 7 (Australia)
Mondays 9/8c NBC (US)
