keys to the vip (a professional league for players) is a reality-television, comedy game show that aired on the comedy network and fuse tv from 2006 to 2008. it is fine tv, and regarding the totality of materials out there concerned with the player lifestyle, game and pick up it is the best in my opinion, and it is absolutely among the top 3. it is real, it is daring, it features both knowledgeable judges and some amazing contestants, it has humor and smart remarks, the mood is always lighthearted and the show is agile and enjoyable. this series had 3 seasons, with 12 or 13 episodes each. each episode pitted two self- proclaimed players trying to put themselves in the ladies’ favor and trying to get phone numbers from unsuspecting women in real life night clubs (all interactions being recorded with hidden cameras and microphones). ok, each episode presents three rounds, but really nine rounds or more were recorded over 4 or 5 hours for each single episode, then, the footage underwent massive editing and preparation in order to fit into a 22 minute long format, and more crucially, to create the impression of competition and suspense. each round commanded both contestants in turn to go try to pick up some girl, and normally it implied some handicap. if the contestant got the number or did well, he was awarded a point, if he failed, he got nothing; points were then added to determine the winner, but, as was said previously, the editing was structured to try and make the third round always decisive. so, contestants were in a separate room from the rest of the people in the bar, got their challenge, went out and executed, returned and so on for nine rounds or more. all this structure, the time limits and the number of mandatory rounds reportedly incredibly benefited most of the contestants’ game and results.
there were four judges in the show: chris, peachez, alen and sheldon. alen is the producer and creator of the show, the rest of the guys fell in place gradually. it could seem as if these were long time friends who went out together a lot and picked up women, but that’s not necessarily the case. alen got the show off and running, sheldon and peachez actually did use to go out together and it was them who started out with the idea of a game of handicapped pick up dares around the which the show revolves, chris was assisting with behind cameras work and was put in front of the cameras to balance out the panel and tone aggression a tad down. when i initially watched the show, i would side with and agree more with the colored gentlemen, but the guys with better game and who would get results are chris and especially alen, as you have more game and nous you can tell.
now, the contestants, in almost every episode, at least one of the participants has outrageous game. the show and the participants have a lot of very desirable traits for players to have, a can do attitude, the show is daring, fun, captivating and there is some perfect pick up execution on display. there are a handful contestants you will soon forget because they suck, but at least they had the balls to be there, and if we watch the show it is for the champs and to learn from the best.
i’ll comment briefly on the most notable and impressive contestants. tops is nick dundee hands down, the guy’s game is out of the charts. he is backpacking through north america and is already staying in toronto with some ladies he met in a bar, they take care of his dry cleaning and deliver it to him in time for him to get to the show, and they cheer him on to win the competition. nick destroys the three challenges he is presented, but even more impressive; before the rounds begin he has two of the show’s models eating from the palm of his hand and they want him then and still want him in the vip (i’m in love with the gorgeous model with jet black hair, green eyes, and black shorts with a pink top). priceless, the man is a killer. he is australian, so he has the exotic element in canada, he is tall, of good looks and build, but as has been mentioned and described in previous posts, he has the requisite masculinity down pat, and he has the element of wildness. a man that could rule the wild like in the times of cavemen; in australia the natural environment has not been modified as heavily as in the usa or europe. eddie vedder of pearl jam said in a live bootleg in australia i used to have – you guys in this island (the australian audience) have got your shit together, you still kill your own food -. not literally, of course, but people down under are in closer contact and better harmony with nature and the wild. as we observed with jeremy wade, that competency attracts women massively. nick is confident, moves around in no hurry, speaks in a loud voice, displays great non verbal communication and is unflappable. as i watched the best episodes again, some finer details kept emerging (as your own game gets better, you notice and understand deeper levels of interaction in the pick ups, and get a keener eye for detail), nick does face some token resistance and symbolic testing in some rounds and just keeps moving on dominant and unreactive. in the final round, some ladies approach him like women always do, facing the other way and bumping into or hitting the guy. once more, he is unmoved and finding he has a nice pitch in the strike zone proceeds to blast it out of the ballpark. watch and learn, young grasshoppers, model yourselves and your games after prime examples like nick dundee.
there are other equally notable players. i love kyle the diesel’s game as well. he’s got the looks, the physique, the steady demeanor, he’s fun, he’s charming and also has the masculinity and sexual threat at the ready. he has a game based on firsthand experience, on pushing his limitations, on continuing to grow, on overcoming weaknesses, in sum: the only kind of game there is. there is josh the matador, he’s also outstanding, he projects all the right traits and never faces even the slightest resistance, brilliant. there’s anthony the boy wonder, who in his episode is too good for his own good, jaja, he has women chasing after him because he decides to go for a more attractive target. there’s claymax, a guy whose looks and physique actually overcome some weaknesses and stupidity in his game, something i’ve never seen anywhere else. there are a lot of other great players: bruno, andrew, justin, mark sparks, hot body jason. there’s eyal the egyptian prince, that guy could not be any smoother and experienced. there’s even a guy with massive retro game, christian the keeper; his game is old school, about romance, about compliments, about niceness, and he is fucking brilliant. there’s derek cajun, an instructor for love systems and he actually goes with a structured and scripted approach just to demonstrate that what he teaches works (in interviews he says his actual gaming style is way past structured stuff or canned material, and he has also filmed some instructional videos we’ll recommend in posterior posts).
these guys are mostly self taught players, as it should be. you can witness every kind of gaming style in action, there are contestants that play nice, or charming, fun, upbeat, direct, some go with canned crap, dominant, silent, loud, scripted, spontaneous, everything. what the successful guys have in common is confidence. and as has been discussed in other posts, masculinity and nice. game is just that, everybody generates a response in the rest of the people, guys with game just generate in women a response that is conducive to enjoyment, trust, compliance, sex and emotions. in some interviews out there, the judges on the show actually tell that the structure focused and helped many of the contestants.
now, those are all attractive guys, and the weak minded men without game could mistakenly think attractive men have it easy (it is never easy, rather a little more straightforward). but still, there are many contestants that prove beyond all doubt that game, the response you generate, is not solely dependent on looks. you can build yourself and your game. mark the karaoke kid is huge, the guy doesn’t have the looks, not by far, but he is great. he is super confident, smooth and articulate, masculine, dominant, determined and realistic enough. he adjusts and goes for ladies not that stunning, but the game and the results are there. he’s an example for those that don’t dare yet. donnie danger is great also, great attire, great grooming and beautiful game. illya the ill kid is huge also, kudos to the man. mike the magician, well, he gets the numbers and is ok all around, but i don’t see him bedding the ladies because he never brings the sexual threat; he’s also an example though. little / big john, man, this guy is pure heart, pure drive, pure overachieving, my hat’s off to him and everyone who is as inspiring. blake the chef is really good also, making the most of what he’s got, as should we all. and then, cobra commander phil, that guy is special. that’s the no game game. ladies are startled, they don’t know where are they left standing, don’t know what to make of things. he goes in, goes for the girl, is meekly rejected, turns the tables on the lady, isn’t going for her, isn’t being rejected, points out the lady is being rude and mean, ladies apologize, he has them, he once more turns the screw, he doesn’t accept the apology, ladies never been there before, he points out their helplessness and turns the screw once or twice more just for effect. amazing. and his confidence is pure, his game is pure, he doesn’t depend on possessions, earnings, his job, his clothes, his genetics, his grooming. the guy is pure and free of all constraints. a true artist. and the judges acknowledge his prowess and reward him as should be, truly inspiring and deserved. it takes one to know one.
there’s not many shows like this one. there is a nice interview with three of the judges in mark sparks’ – men’s room -. there are a couple other interviews out there, with cajun and others. but the show in itself, and especially the contestants’ game is where the learning lies. i love this show. i think it’s the most straightforward way to watch self taught players in action and learn from them. this is a show that i can say changed my life and was among the materials i’ve checked out that most helped me improve my game. i love it, even the victory song when in the vip, i play it to get in the mood to go out and hit it (red carpet – alright domain pettigrew remix). so, check out this show, enjoy it, study it, and hit the clubs to reenact it. set your goals, build your game, get out and get in the game. make things happen.
