However, social activist Sue Bradford said the competition took "commercial radio to new depths".
"It is unusual and somewhat disturbing that a commercial entity would commercialise what should be one of the most meaningful human relationships and actually offer it as a prize for a radio show," she said.Source: web.orange.co.uk
About Endless Love Agency (from here)
As the owner of “endless love agency” I have PERSONALLY experienced the search for a wife and soul mate worldwide.
Endless Love Agency combines Kiwi business ethics and morals with my own personal experiences and detailed knowledge of the internet marriage industry. I use trusted agents in the Ukraine that share the same business, personal ethics and morals. As part of our unique practice we even meet and personally interview every woman applying to join the agency, unlike most other internet agencies.
We guarantee that our ladies are 100% real, genuine and look as they appear in their photos. After worldwide research for over 10 years it is my experienced opinion that Ukraine women are the best ladies to match New Zealand men. There are many single stunningly beautiful and genuine Ukrainian women waiting to meet you.
I frequently travel to the Ukraine and have a vast knowledge of the languages, customs and differences between the 2 countries. I have in-depth knowledge of the pitfalls that many men face when going alone.
If you are looking for a beautiful, loving and caring woman to share your life with then welcome to Endless Love Agency!
The reason I picked the Ukraine for my agency was because of the high quality of the ladies. These Ladies are not only very very beautiful and educated but have high family morals, values and standards. There is, for some reason of genetics, a high female birth rate. The current ratio is around 6 females to 1 male. In general many men there want to womanise, not work and drink too much alcohol. As a result women in the Ukraine have trouble finding a good man. For these women their main goal in seeking marriage outside their country is to have a family, a man to love and cherish who will provide for their family and love her back.
How is it any different from "The Bachelor" (or "The Bachelorette") shows in US? But what if none of girls like the selected participant?
