    Despicable and morally bankrupt.

    God’s kingdom or heavenly government (Daniel 2:44; Isaiah 11:1-9) will soon put an end to all poverty and man’s corrupt political and economical systems (including greed) on earth so that the human family can finally achieve the “real life” we were always meant to enjoy (Revelation 21:3-4).

    The little woman on the first one was deplorable. She showed her selfishness in so many ways- after seeing the other couples home. The other couple’s wife was wonderful- showing selflessness after and before she even met the couple. I don’t think the the little woman actually deserves a child after seeing how selfish she is. Amazing.

    I won’t be watching anymore. Too deplorable.

    The real issue is most Americans have poor spending habits. I said from the first show, this program is hurting families, not helping! You can’t give someone with poor spending habits, a suitcase of money, just like you can’t give a drug head drugs. These families have a median income of $65,000 with debt of $150,000 plus.
