The Pick Up Artist VH1 [2]There are few things in this world that I loathe more than cheesy reality TV, but like a bad car wreck, I couldn’t help but watch The Pickup Artist. I mean, imagine if VH1 created a reality show that completely butchered and made a fool out of your profession? You’d probably watch it every day too. Here are some of my random accumulated thoughts, from a professional pick up coach’s perspective:

To be frank, I can’t recommend the show. If you haven’t seen it, you’re not missing anything. If you have seen it, realize that it’s a cheap bastardization of what real pick up coaching [4] looks like, and that 90% of the advice and approaches done on the show are either piss-poor, or just plain wrong.
