We will be reviewing The Pick Up Artist, a short lived VH1 reality show about turning "dorks" into studs as they are taken under their wing by a "pick up artist" The show will eventually showcase other such bad reality programs on a range of topics surrounding people getting bad dating advice. We will occasionally be doing random off the cuff episodes unrelated to the main theme. Feel free to start on Episode 4 if you want to get to know both of us before you dive into The Pick Up Artist discussion, as that episode is just a really fun and weird introduction of both of us and our relationship to the audience.
Episode 1: The Pick Up Artist
The first episode of Helpless Romantics, to begin we will be reviewing The Pick Up Artist, a short lived VH1 reality show from the early 2000's about turning "dorks" into studs as they are taken under their wing by a "pick up artist" who's name is just "Mystery". The show will eventually showcase other such bad reality programs on a range of topics surrounding people getting bad dating advice, or just other "pick up artists" in general, as there appear to be hundreds more than just Mystery, each more ridiculous than the next. If you'd like to watch the episode before you listen, it is streaming here on Vimeo.

We also received information from someone who was involved with the show! So listen to this one to see what secret they revealed to us....
A simple fun and humorous listen
I never imagined I would have any interest in anything related to the Pickup Artist. Helpless Romantics is a hilarious experience covering this topic. The hosts chemistry is on point, and the humor lands at the right moments. I can’t recommend this show enough.
This Is How You Podcast
These two mostly stick to a specific topic. That’s the smartest and best way to do it.
I love the concept for this pod. Andrea and Sam are a blast to hang out with. Their banter and chemistry is so enjoyable to me. I’m especially a fan of Andrea’s quirky voice and Sam’s contagious laugh!
