Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this reality show follows the formula of many Bachelor-type series, but takes it to a raunchy level. The women competing for the top spot as rocker Bret Michaels' girlfriend are, for the most part, infantile, catty, and promiscuous. Most have large, prominently displayed breasts (in at least one instance, said breasts are visible, though blurred, onscreen), and most rely primarily on their bodies to attract Michaels (in one scene, a woman straddles him, hikes up her skirt, and grinds against his pelvis). Most of the women get extremely drunk, and some are unable to form comprehensible sentences. Michaels lavishes praise on the women for their looks, while paying lip service to brains and personality. While some women seem friendly toward one another, most are meanly competitive, insulting one another and even engaging in minor physical battles.

Sexual Content

Most women wear revealing clothing and bare a lot of cleavage. At least one woman bares her breasts onscreen, though they're blurred out. One gives Michaels a lap dance, and her underwear is momentarily visible. Discussion of "cold showers," "beat[ing] my penis to a pulp," and wanting to "f--k Bret Michaels." Also scenes of women leading Michaels upstairs toward bedrooms. Pole dancing.


Cat fights with mild physical contact. Angry confrontations and hurled insults.


Constant stream of profanity, with the strongest words (like "f--k," which is used frequently) bleeped. Words like "ass," "crap" and "hell" aren't bleeped. Lots of sexually oriented language like "slut," "whore," "bitch," etc.

Social Behavior

The show teaches the lesson that it's OK to be mean to other people in order to win a competition, reinforces stereotypes about women as sexual objects, and downplays women's intellect. It offers a confusing message to younger viewers, who might wonder why these women are disrespecting themselves in such a public forum.


Promotes Michaels and his band.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alcohol use is rampant. Some women get so drunk that they can barely hold their heads up and can't form coherent sentences. One rule announced by the security guard is "no puking in the pool." Jokes about being alcoholics. Some smoking.
