There's Now A Tumblr For Every Contestant From MTV's 'Next'

Lane Moore is a comedian who is famous for her Tumblr collections, like Male Feminists of Instagram. Somewhat obsessed with romance and dating, it seems obvious that she’d be attracted to the early reality TV show Next, a show where sexy singles basically Tinder swiped each other before such a thing existed. Except it was in person. On MTV. 

Why would anyone subject themselves to such a situation? Probably so that years later, someone could remind them what their three “interesting” facts about themselves were:

In an email with Distractify, Moore explained why she took on the daunting task of screen-capping all these lonely hearts for her new Tumblr collection, “Hotties of MTV’s Next,” 

“I’ve always loved shows like Blind Date and Next so much. I grew up on them. In late 2015, I started rewatching Next obsessively and I’d forgotten how incredible those three facts on there were and started posting some clips on Vine, etc. It was a show I forgot I loved and I wanted to remind others of its joy. 

Whoever took that interview with the daters and boiled it down to like ‘loves bees named Gabe, wet himself at his mom’s wedding two years ago, wants kids’ is an unsung hero. I can’t wait to post the like 200 screen caps I have.”

She’s right. They’re glorious.

After reading so many of those in a row, I’m starting to suspect the producers of Next didn’t actually want to help these kids find love! You can watch an episode below and decide if this was all for our entertainment or not:

17 Times Tumblr Had Too Much Fun With Benedict Cumberbatch's Name

Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t just a great actor, he has a great name. Sure, it’s a bunch of different syllables and it sounds like something out of a quirky British novel set in Victorian times. He has the name of a guy that the girl in the story is engaged to but doesn’t really love, he’s just a good “match” for her.

Trust me, as someone with an unusual name myself, I get the flak that Cumberbatch gets for his moniker.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy all the ribs he gets on the internet for being blessed with such an original name. And neither does Tumblr. So they’ve started a little game that the rest of the internet’s adopted of making fun of his name in the most absurd ways.

23 People On Tumblr Who Are Asking The Tough Questions

If you want honesty, comedy, drama, or whatever it is you’re looking for, then you don’t need to look further than real life. Sure, your life may be “boring” but who’s fault is that? Our minds are infinite, and we can come up a billion different ideas, scenarios, games, or just thoughts to dwell on.

And even if for some reason we don’t feel like sitting alone with ourselves, then we’ve got an entire world filled with people to interact with, and the best part: you don’t even need to leave your house to do it. There are plenty of social sites where you can interact with others entire for free and get as weird, introspective, or totally silly as you want.

Or you could just creep on other people’s statuses and see the hilarious stuff they come up with, like these Tumblr users.
