VH1 has given creepy guy Mystery his own show titled "The Pick Up Artist".
Remember him? He's the one I wrote about recently, the one who recommended isolating a girl from her friends and family, and keeping her away from any kind of support system, so you could use her confusion and lack of sane people to tell her to stay the hell away from that psycho to your advantage:
Mystery claims that these four are defining all social interaction, and that there are natural phases that every sexual relationship goes through, and that most people aren't aware of those phases. If you buy their book, you can learn what those phases are and get ANY woman you want into bed!!!
Mystery goes on to say that by using their system, every woman is available to you, taken, single, married, whatever. She'll never say no, and she'll never want to. It's like a superpower, he says. And if you buy their book, you can, too!
Excuse me while I snort in disbelief.
Upon doing some research, I found this interesting little snippet (emphasis mine):Frances Whiting, writing for The Sunday Mail, also criticized Mystery Method tactics used by Mystery. She writes: “Mystery advises would-be wooers to: ‘Take the victim down from their friends, family and home. Once isolated they have no outside support and in their confusion are easily led astray.’ Oh, I'm sorry, clearly I'm reading from that other well-known book about male/female relationships, Dating: A Stalker's Guide…and why any man would follow Mystery's advice I do not know.”
On VH1, he's also bringing fellow video creep Matador along, as well as some new creep named J Dog. VH1 describes the show thusly:
The VH1 series, THE PICK-UP ARTIST, is a tale of transformation. For these eight lovable losers, "socially awkward" is the understatement of the year. And when it comes to this lonely hearts club, desperate times call for desperate measures. Enter Mystery, best-selling author and ultimate pick-up artist--a former nerd from the Great White North who has discovered the secret to wooing women. Under his expert tutelage, he'll guide this group of hapless horndogs through the rough waters of romance and help them find the courage to overcome their biggest fear--talking to women.
In THE PICK-UP ARTIST, eight misfits will live together, learn together and love together as they compete for the title of "Master Pick-Up Artist." Over the course of eight episodes, the men will learn the ins and outs of the Mystery Method-- "how to open a set," "the number close" and "the kiss close" among others. Aided by his faithful wingmen, Matador and J Dog, Mystery will teach these average guys how to turn the women of their dreams into the women of their reality.
But this seduction school isn't confined the classroom. After each lesson, Mystery's awkward apprentices will put theory into practice, hitting bars, clubs and coffee houses in an attempt to make a love connection. Via hidden cameras, Mystery is always watching to see who's got potential and who's got to go.
In each episode, one contestant will be declared the winner of a challenge and granted immunity from elimination, while one sad sack will be sent packing. At the end of the eight weeks, one winner will be named "Master Pick-Up Artist" and awarded $50,000.
What are these challenges? Who can slip a roofie into a girl's drink without her noticing? Who can make out with a girl while she's holding her bodybuilder boyfriend's hand without him beating the crap out of him? I mean, with Mystery, who knows what you're getting into?
One of my favorite parts of this show is the gigantic, black, fuzzy (yes, fuzzy) hat that Mystery is wearing in one of the show's promo photos. It's like something out of Alice in Wonderland that an emo kid might have picked if he was the costume designer. Another picture shows him looking like some kind of weird pilot wearing black eyeliner, complete with goggles.
God help these poor guys. They're going to go on this show, completely normal men, and "graduate" weirdo date rapists who think they're smooth. All the while, it gives this creep the illusion that he now has credibility, and that his methods are legitimate.
I shudder at the thought.
