The Boston Globe notes that one of the females on the show, Nikki, 30, is the Snooki figure on the VH1 vehicle and calls her the “breakout character.” She essentially thinks that women should “keep their mouths shut” when their men are watching a sporting event, has a “peanut-buttered-colored tan, incandescent hair and shaved eyebrows,” the Globe writes.
The New York Times is even harder on the show, reporting “Wicked Single” makes the cast of “'Jersey Shore' cast look like geniuses.”
The Times describes one cast member, Rachel, 28, as an “airhead” who proclaims that she needs to either freeze her eggs or “have a one-night stand” with a professional athlete and get pregnant.
The rest of the cast includes Chrissy, 27, who is probably the most responsible of the lot holding three jobs; Chelsi, 24, who dropped out of law school because it took too much effort and put a damper on her partying; Joe, 30, a self-described party animal; and Chubs, 30, Joe's roommate, who is also out to party as much as is humanly possible.
VH1 has no qualms about how critical those who have seen the show have been on it, as the network features a video on its site featuring harsh quotes about the series.
One from Aussie Short 3390 via YouTube reads, “I just puked in my mouth VH1… RU serious?”
@LongHornsMMA tweeted, the show “…just set back Boston another couple decades, “ while @JoeyDurden wrote the “Wicked Single” spot made him “want to repeatedly hit myself in the genitals with a meat tenderizer.”
“Wicked Single” airs on VH1 Sundays at 11 p.m. ET.
