New Reality Show Gadget or the Girl Forces Men to Choose Between Women and Electronics

Gadget or the Girl: Really?!

Thought The Bachelor was silly? At least the guy from The Bachelor doesn't tell you that he'd rather hang out with his HDTV.

That's basically the premise of a new reality show, called Gadget or the Girl? where contestants choose between a mystery gadget and spending a weekend with a hot lady. I don't know what I feel the worst about — comparing a woman to a piece of electronic equipment or the self-esteem of the participating females ("objectified" doesn't even begin to cover it).

I mean, don't we already deal with boyfriends who pay more attention to their video games, computers, and cell phones (although I know I dish that out too sometimes)? The show is on Playboy TV, so I don't know about you, but I probably won't click past it in my regular rotation.

What do you think? Is Gadget or the Girl where our all-encompassing gadget love has gotten us, or is it just a misogynistic display of boys and their toys?
