Jews in Television #2: Hitting on Bubbie.

You heard me. Hitting on Bubbie.

Ever see the show The Pickup Artist? Or to be more exact, The Pickup Artist 2? It’s a show hosted by a man named Mystery, who claims to be an expert on picking up women.

In the show, 8 men who have no idea how to talk to women go through “grueling” competitions and are transformed into the next “Pickup Artist.”

In last week’s episode, the men were given their first challenge: To go to a bingo game and flirt with old women.  At the end of the day, the women would choose who their favorite was.

Of course, the winner was the resident Jew, Matt Radmanovitch. Why do I say of course? Because Matt credits his win to visiting his bubbie at her old age home and flirting with all of her friends.

You can’t make this up.
