Default So I was watching MTV's Fast and the Gorgeous

and is it just me..or do the girls on that "Fast and the Gorgeous" show have absolutely zero knowledge about anything remotely to do with cars??? I mean in one of their challenges they had to match the correct name of the part with the part...one stupid girl put "radiator" on the battery! come on, its not that hard!

I don't think technical knowledge has ever been the selection criteria of Pit girls in the history of motorsports!

roadies at least did better scolding and fights.

These girls even can not do that. I watched it yesterday. They labeled Fuel tank as radiator.

hmmm... most of my early evenings are spent on the road.

Even VH1 has now started hosting a lot of non-music programs... G to Gents, Yo Momma, Punk'd and what not.

EDIT: I was so happy when i heard that they will air SouthPark on VH1 though. But, my happiness was shortlived. SouthPark is horribly censored. "Oh my god. they killed Kenny." "You beeeeeeep"

I know but refrained from posting that as I didnt want to invite a flack from the ladies on the forum! well, yes - they aren't fast and not at all gorgeous. The only one I liked was voted out last week (don't remember her name but long curly hair). She was voted out as she was very "polished" as compared to others!

You guys actually take the pains to watch that program?!
Roadies was somehow bearable, but this one is seriously the pits.

. Ok there are a couple who are good...like that divya girl...i think thats her name (tall, brown hair). The rest are just trash though... At least on splitsvilla there were some halfway decent girls..with joanna being the yummiest!

Note from the Team-BHP Support Team : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

The problem is when ever you switch to MTV, they are either showing splitsvilla or F&G. Can't help it apart from changing the channel

Ugly. Plus they blame each of not having the class. Its sometimes fun watching women talking about how someone looks so bad when she herself is "ugly".

Not pointing towards anyone but talking in general.

Edit: I suggest we lock this thread as its going to lead nowhere.
Edit 2: Refrain from using words like "yummy" etc for members from the opposite sex. You might just invite an infraction.
