I admit to watching the occasional episode of Singled Out back in the day, but I can’t say I was really a fan. The first round of the show operated on absolutes; they’d ask the guy if he preferred “wash and wear” or “high maintenance” and of course the guy would pick wash-and-wear, because really, who wouldn’t? I would, and I’m not really a wash-and-wear girl—nor am I high-maintenance.
This 1995 ad for tapings of Singled Out at Kings Dominion seems to operate in that same world of absolutes—the girls don’t have dates so they have no choice but to do laundry; the guys have little to do but lift weights together. Subtext, anyone?
