MySpace Meets Reality TV

Social networking site MySpace hopes to attract Internet users with a new reality TV-style show called Married on MySpace. The show will chronicle one couple’s journey to their wedding day. MySpace members will drive much of the decision-making in the planning event.

The process begins with users voting on videos submitted by couples to determine who should be featured. After a couple has been chosen, MySpace users vote on other aspects of the special day, such as selecting what the couple will wear, the location of the bachelor and bachelorette parties, and even the wedding location. (If you think the concept sounds a bit familiar, NBC’s “Today” show has hosted an annual wedding contest for almost ten years.)

There will be 13 websidoes of Married on MySpace in all. The final episode will show the couple’s wedding day. The episodes will include information from MySpace profiles of the wedding party, behind-the-scenes video, and blogs. Of course, the wedding itself will be streamed live on the Web site.

The series is being produced by Endemol USA which is the same company behind popular reality TV shows like Big Brother, Fear Factor, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and Deal or No Deal.

Even though MySpace may not be the top social networking site, it still has a place as one of the more popular entertainment destinations on the web. Original content such as Married on MySpace that involves its community of users and keeps users on the MySpace page for longer periods of time could prove to be a good thing for the site overall.

um...I don't even know what to say? Could people generally be ok with something as important as a marriage being decided by a bunch of 13 yr old girls (sterotype im sorry) across all of myspace? I mean if they really help "plan" the thing how much would it fit into one's own dream (my g/f has everything like all planned out and we're not even engaged...I think she'd be upset if this was taken away from her..)

Agreed.  The only couples that are going to sign-on for this are attention-whores.  10 will get you 20 that Tila Tequila is already in the running.

I dont think I trust myspace users to pick anything for my wedding. Might as well call on 4chan.

Maybe its for those that can't afford anything at all so they just hope for the best and put it in the hands of myspacers? that is the only feasible thing that I can think of...

In my opinion, people that can't afford to go to the court house and sign the papers shouldn't be getting married (presumably so that they can have children).

And, I'd rather have a little nothing of a wedding than let it be planned by a hundred thousand anonymous idiots.
