Sexual activity in humans is an instinctive form of physical intimacy. ...


Typically, the contestants are very competitive and direct insulting comments towards the other competitors many times during an episode. There are rare cases where there is fighting, but "catty" bickering is the major draw of the show. The extremity of some of the cattiness sometimes points to fed lines or suggestions from the producers, and contestants respond "real-time" through cutscenes to their opponents' remarks. Most cuts are preceded by some variation of the phrase I liked everybody but unfortunately the name of the game is 'elimiDATE', so I have to make a cut. So I decided to cut ....

Like "Wild Kingdom," with hot tubs - Salon.com (779 words)
Punched his fist while he said it, too, for emphasis, because that's the kind of guy he is. That's also the kind of guy "ElimiDATE," which airs in syndication, likes: buff, suffused with a confidence bordering on arrogance, not necessarily bright and on the hunt for a mate.
Yet the pleasure of "ElimiDATE" -- and admittedly it's a guilty one -- is that it gleefully throws True Love and the One off the table.
That's hardly fair to Viji as a whole person, but the "whole person" doesn't mean much on "ElimiDATE." A typical episode starts with drinks, goes out dancing, then winds up making out in the hot tub.
