The Pickup Artist on VH1 – Filmed in Austin

pua_trailer_111x71.jpgVH1’s latest reality show is called The Pickup Artist. From their description, it’s about “eight lovable losers who’ll be tutored on how talk to and romance women”. They’ll be learning from a guy named “Mystery”. Try to hold your laughter. It gets better once “Mystery” actually appears. He looks like a goth Bob Schneider.

Why am I even talking about this show?

Well, my friends, it’s set in Austin. It looks like they’re living in a sweet pad out on Lake Travis. There are several shots of downtown and the first episode takes place at a club called The Foundation, which I guess is where Element used to be?

I don’t think I’d recommend watching it, but if you want to be able to watch a show and say, “I know where that is!” then be my guest.

Anybody know if they’ve completed filming? I’m guessing that most shows finish filming before they air.

Update Oh yeah, you can also view a preview for free on iTunes.
