Doomed to fail

ANOTHER myth bit the dust when Dave and Ruby went their separate ways this week.

ANOTHER myth bit the dust when Dave and Ruby went their separate ways this week.

South Africans, hungry for fun and any romance that would help them escape their dreary lives, latched on to the Two Strangers and a Marriage reality show on Kaya FM last year.

Ruby was chosen from among hundreds of would-be brides and matched to three grooms. The show was awash with prizes.

Ruby, who listeners now accuse of a mercenary streak, chose Dave, who was not her type. The romance failed to gather steam.

Everyone blames Ruby because right from the start "she was just not into him". Shades of Adam blaming Eve in the garden of Eden.

No one questions whether the eager Dave was suitable husband material.

In IsiZulu a man who relies on the whole country via the radio to help him get married is an isishumane - a loser.
