Flashback Friday-Room Raiders (2004-2006)

One’s home often speaks volumes about the person who lives there.

Room Raiders aired on MTV from 2004-2006. The premise is as follows: three men or women have their homes raided by a potential date. The contestants watch from a van as this man or woman visits their home. The residents either have pictures of themselves removed or covered. After the room raider has visited all three properties, their three potential dates inspect their homes. Then the room raider makes a decision on who to go out with.

Among the dating reality shows that littered the MTV schedule in the early 2000’s, this show was one of the more interesting ones. It was interesting because it felt more organic (well, as organic as a dating reality show can get) than some of the other dating reality shows that MTV aired at the time.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
