Show Concept The show focuses on the lives of five diverse men living together for six weeks while competing against each other in a variety of competitions to have their child support balance paid (up to $25,000) and a contest prize of $25,000. In their own words they will uncover as we discover some of the reasons they fell behind in the support of their child. Our Counselors will give assistance to each man in hopes to improve parenting skills and relationships with child and childs mother. The men will earn money by working various jobs and through weekly competition. Money earned will go towards outstanding child support balance. If there is no outstanding balance the money will go as credit for future child support payments. The contest begins with a series of contestant interviews and the issuing of five life-like infant dolls. The dolls has a computer chip and a hidden mechanism that makes the dolls wiggles, cries and keeps data to help judges determine if its being properly cared for. During the six weeks, the men will fill the role of custodial parents. This will allow men to share the experiences of most single mothers. As of yesterday, 543 contestents have applied. I'm not sure what to think of this. I think the counseling and such is a good idea, but wouldn't it be a better idea to do that for both parents? -or- is there some kind of screening process to ensure the 5 contestents chosen have a mother who is willing to cooperate with them? Is it somewhat condescending to men? That crossed my mind. But I guess participants would be doing so of there free will, so maybe not. Plus, not all single dads are attempting a relationship with a newborn. Why limit it to just newborns? Think of all the never married absent fathers, children and mothers who could benefit at an older age. Then there is the issue of cse ( child support enforcement ) including the winnings as income. Which it should not.... Wonder if the show got that straightened out. Do you think the show will fly? Will it get the ratings it needs to stay on the air? I didn't read/see it was picked up by any station. Thoughts/comments?
