Watch Online Dating Rituals

On it, he asked viewers if they wanted him to become "the most evil villain in the history of reality TV. Constantly referring to himself on that show as "Primetime Alex Stein 99," the wannabe stud he fronts on Online Dating Rituals is the most toxic kind of bachelor. He's lewd, shallow, and sexually aggressive, and is also clearly playing to the cameras because he knows the game. Marcus formerly a trainer on the NBC lifestyle series Starting Over is, however, everything ABC's long-running series The Bachelor should want in a star and they would be foolish to pass him up if he's still single.

Though married before, he claims to believe fervently in finding true love, and actually interacts with online dating in a fairly sensible way. He has a list of reasonable red flags, and labors over the depth of his messages to potential dates. When he meets the women, he's respectful, and he gives everyone a genuine chance, even if they don't exactly match their profile.

Over the course of the first hour, both men go on a number of dates, some of which are funny and interesting, with women who are mostly at least for Marcus off-beat, which feels forced. But as Alex sneers at the girls he meets, and rejects them for not wanting to sleep with him on the first night -- even grabbing at them and generally acting like a predator -- the series which aims to be lighthearted takes on an uncomfortable pall.

The "revelations" are not particularly groundbreaking: Men are looking at and attracted to breasts and butts.

Paid Grant, a year-old orthopedic surgeon, has a plan: With guidance from his roommate, Grant turns to online dating to find the woman of his dreams. Will he find what he's looking for or will every woman pale in comparison to the one he's invented in his mind? Keith, a 42 year-old cat-obsessed comic, began online dating to combat his shy and awkward demeanor, but now uses it to attract women who would normally be way out of his league.

Will he find a companion who can appreciate all of his quirks, or will his search for beauty get in the way of finding a perfect match? Paid Travis, a year-old virgin, turns to online dating to find his bride. This devout Christian has high expectations. His future wife must be beautiful, virtuous, love the Lord and appreciate his desire to remain a virgin until marriage.

Will his rigid guidelines keep love out of reach, or will he bend the rules for the right girl? Davey Wavey, a gay YouTube personality with over 4, messages in his dating inbox, has been on hundreds of online dates. But at 30 years-old, this self-proclaimed "queen of first dates" has grown tired of meaningless hookups and is seeking something with more substance.
