What do you ladies think about A&E's new show "Rodeo Girls"?

This show seems to be stirring up some controversy. It hasn't aired yet, not until January.

A&E's write up- A&E Network Greenlights "Rodeo Girls" (Working Title) to Series - A&E News

You can read some of the comments about what people are saying about the show just based on the show's poster art here- Rodeo Girls: Check Out the Eye-Popping Key Art for A&Es Barrel-Racing Docu-Series - TVLine

What do you guys think? Will you be watching it this winter?

Well, the guy in me suspects her legs will be rubbed so raw that SHE won't be good for riding for a while...although at my age & with my looks, most of my 'saddle time' is like this :

It's my wife that says, "Neighhhh!"

I can manage riding in shorts but not in any saddle except my barrel saddle. Lol

I'm definitely on the fence about it. I will probably watch the first episode or so just to see what its like. From the look of the poster, it will be nothing like the real world.

Like this quote from there promotional site-

"Rodeo Girls" goes behind the scenes and offers a glimpse into the lavish and glamorous world of the women of the pro rodeo circuit. Proving that these competitions are more than just cowboy boots, chaps and spurs, these prominent and privileged rodeo queens are the exception to the rule."

I want them to come to my place and see how "lavish and glamorous" this world is. Sure, when you are in the Thomas and Mack on the horse of your dreams, then you are really feeling like that. But you can't forget the blood, sweat, and tears that go into it beforehand.

Another quote-

"Hailing from backgrounds as diverse as their credit card purchases, these women are in the center of it all and have the big rigs to prove it. Whether coming from million dollar mansions, carpools and inheritances, or working nights to make ends meet, the fierce opponents give it their all as they compete each weekend."

I don't know that I would go so far as to say that we 'are the center of it all.' And the big rigs to prove it? There are many girls and women on the circuit who are a long ways from a big rig and million dollar mansions.

I don't want to bash it to much, because it may end up coming around and being a great show. But people need to remember the other side of it two. Like when, for example, Charmayne James started, she had an old rusted out bumper bull trailer that Scamper rode in. Granted, now her hard work and long hours have paid off and she has a beautiful rig, it took her many years to get there. But who knows, it may end up being a decent show. This is just my first opinion, based on the promotions and posters.

The show itself I don't think is the controversy it was that announcement poster that has everyone spun up. IT was done in very poor taste. The show has a FB site that I looked at when this first came out..the pics of the "riders" are indicating, at least to me, they took six of the, let me use the term, "barbie doll" types, to portray. Somehow I don't think this "reality" show is going to have a whole lot of reality other than maybe the actual barrel racing.

Wish they would make a show about rodeo girls that actually looked like they are at a rodeo. Then I might just watch it.

I'm interested in seeing how it all plays out.
