Portia Freelove a contestant’s of TV3’s Date Rush show has told Counsellor Lutterodt to go and have his head examined.
The contestant, made this statement following the counsellor’s suggestion that shows that sought to help people find suitors were only promoting prostitution.
In a recent interview , the controversial counsellor opined that the fact the participants of the show hurriedly hook up without taking time to study themselves implies that such shows are platforms for glorified prostitution.
“You meet a guy on TV and all of a sudden on TV you ask the guy and he says I like you, what are the things you know about the person? I think that it is prostitution glorified if you ask me. That we are glorifying prostitution but using other mediums to invite people to practice ‘ashawo in disguise” he said.
According to Mr George Lutterodt, the physical appearance must not be the only means by which a boyfriend or girlfriend is selected. “Just by looking at the person, you like him or her. These people come on TV in their best-dressed attire. The guys who come there don’t know you well,” he noted.
Portia , who was obviously upset by the counsellor’s utterances blurted out that he needed to be checked because it is clear he has a mental disorder.
The contestant opined that Counsellor Lutterodt needed to get woke and stay woke because, women have choices and it is up to them to choose whichever avenue they deem fit to find love, television and date shows included.
She was also of the view that going on the show as a woman doesn’t in any way portray prostitution since they were not selling their bodies on set.
