Now, arguably, being selected by Brett Michaels is actually the consolation prize with the real reward being able to go back to one's own life and whatever a contestant actually has going for her.
The framing of Bret's decision to be with Taya sent the not-so-subtle message that a man won't buy the cow if he can get the vagina for free, and I expected a different message from good ol' Bret Michaels.
This message is made all the more unsettling by the fact that Rock of Love Bus is the number one show on VH1, and that I can only assume its target demographic is young women.
Never, ever is the girl who most blatantly offers her sexuality the winner.
On tamer shows like the Bachelor, never is the woman who pursues and declares her love before he's declared his the winner.
I never thought I'd say this, but I think I'd prefer vagina shots.
