Binge watching TV: can your favourite TV show make you more attractive?
As it turns out, Aussies think your choice in TV says a lot about you: not only do 60% think that putting your favourite shows in your online profile is a great way to meet a like-minded date, 67% feel that being a fan of the right shows can actually make you more interesting!
Is it you or is it me? Actually, it’s Neighbours!
So what are these ‘right’ shows? Opinions are divided but, ultimately, the show that grants the most kudos is The Big Bang Theory. Indeed, 30% of singles agree that being interested in The Big Bang can make you seem more attractive. Second place goes to Game of Thrones, with 23% thinking that fans of that series are automatically more intriguing; while Criminal Minds takes out third place with 22%.
Of course, there is a flip side to this coin: the survey also revealed that there are TV shows that are seen as off-putting. Leading the pack (by a slight margin) is Neighbours: 54% of Aussie singles think that being a fan of all things Ramsay Street makes you less attractive. Other TV turn-offs include loving Home and Away (a no-no for 50% of singles), and being mad for Doctor Who (a repellant for 19%).
