Mystery VH1 Pick-up Artist Episode 5 Review
Well, now were getting down to the nitty gritty of The Pick-Up Artist show. I was entertained throughout this entire episode so for entertainment value it definitely gets up thumbs up. I do realize now that the show is not an ample substitute to bootcamps,books, or videos for guys looking to learn the material. The guys on the show are being taught a lot more than is being shown on tv. If you watch the VH1 behind the scenes clips are their website you’ll see that.
The opening body language challenge was interesting to watch. It reminded me of some of the pool parties I have had. Although you wouldn’t catch daddy dead in a speedo. Even in Brazil where they are the norm… i refuse. Fat Joe definately commanded the show at the pool party and deserved to win that challenge. Although I think Joe is far from being a pick-up artist it is nice to see him becoming more and more confident in himself. You can tell he really is proud of himself.
The day game challenge was alright. All the guys succeeded in opening sets. I guess when you’ve got mystery watching you have no choice. Although Pradeep got the number I don’t think he deserved to win. Anybody can get lucky and get a number. I remember when I was out learning this stuff years ago, sometimes I would revert back to my old ways and still get a number. I was always dissapointed in myself though. If you want to learn the method you have to commit to it. Pradeep is not committed to anything. But it is a show and he’s a Drama Queen, which producers love.
It was painful for a moment watching Kosmo sit quitetly. It is just another reminder that you have to engage right away. I repeat engage right away. The longer you wait the harder it gets.
Brady really loves that dental floss opener, huh? He is spewing out lines but just doesn’t seem comfortable enough with himself. He has their interest but needs to learn escalation.
Joe W. reminds me of a bitchy gay guy. His emotions seemed staged. He is a theatre guy so maybe it was an act. His pick-up was alright, but Mystery is right, he seemed to have plateaued.
If I was Mystery, and the producers were forcing me to keep Pradeep, I guess Joe W. is who I would have elminated. If Brady don’t get some physical escalation soon he’ll be gone next. Fat Joe is hanging on by his friendliness. He needs to make some stuff happen. Feeling cool will only get you so far. Until you kiss a girl you’ve got nothing. He needs to kiss a girl before the show ends for me to think he’s got player potential.
