'Labor of Love': Kristy tasks hopeful fathers with getting their sperm tested, fans think society has stooped too low
'I mean seriously a 41yo woman who goes on reality tv to find a baby daddy? How embarrassing,' a viewer commented
Fox's 'Labor of Love' aired on May 21, but the show was criticized on social media mercilessly. Even though many viewers find it relatable, there are the ones who didn't appreciate the premise of it. Kristy Katzmann, 'The Bachelor' alum, has everything going for her. She has a charming personality and is affluent, but that seldom makes up for the void that the absence of a child creates in one's life.
Kristy is ready to take the next step, and to fill that space up, she signed up for a rather unique dating show. In 'Labor of Love,' Kristy will test 15 men via tasks and challenges over eight weeks, before she can choose the one with whom she wants to have a family.
On hosting duties is Kristin Davis, who is seen guiding the hopeful mother in her journey on the show. She hasn't aged a day and is still the sweet and petite Charlotte York of 'Sex and The City.' Episode 1 shook the contestants when Kristy didn't waste time in moving along in her journey to motherhood. Before they could mingle, have a chat, the reality TV star gave them a task, in which they had to get their sperms tested.
Meanwhile, fans have questioned the concept of the show with some even calling it "embarrassing." "Just when I think society couldn’t stoop any lower. #LaborOfLove," a viewer commented, while another shared: "#LaborOfLove #FOX What a stupid show this, Labor of love is. I mean seriously a 41yo woman who goes on reality tv to find a baby daddy? How embarrassing."
"I love a good reality show but, #LaborOfLove is weird AF. Dude got a first-place award for having the highest sperm count and then forgets his possible baby mamas name," a viewer expressed referring to Alan, who won the first challenge, for which the men got their semen tested for count and motility.
"I’m watching this #LaborOfLove show and quite annoyed. It doesn’t feel authentic and some of the guy’s personalities are giving me a headache," another shared.
"Part of me is really confused. This is the craziest ish I think I've seen on "reality" tv. A dating show where the men have to whack off and do a fertility test before they've even really talked to the woman? What has my life come to during the Rona?" a viewer questioned.
