are we human, or are we douchebag?

The modern douchebag has been peppered in reality TV for years now, probably starting with Eric Nies on the original season of The Real World. There have been douchebag industries born out of this pop culture fascination, stuff like Girls Gone Wild or douchebags-in-training like the series Pick-Up Artist. While Pick-Up Artist held the honor of being a douchebag in high regard, the contestants were at least sweet guys who were just ill-advised.

Now, the world has a television program that celebrates all that is douchebag. This is Brody Jenner's new MTV reality show, Bromance. Modeled after Paris Hilton's My New BFF series, Jenner's program revolves around a competition where douchebags from around the country compete for the honor of being his new bro. One of the expert judges is called "Sleazy T." Some of the competitions include a "bro-athalon," where they do things like use inflatable dolls to race across a swimming pool. They challenge each other with who can out-douche the group, and it truly is one of the stupidest things to ever make it to television.
