Is it the fast car you just came across on a glossy or the hot girl in your neighbourhood? Is it a lonely adventure trip around the world or a Zen-like stay on slow-clad mountains? Whatever it may be, predictability is incongruous with male fantasies.MTV’s new reality show, Eristoff MF 101, fulfils every imaginable male fantasy for four lucky guys who live in a souped up pad in Bangkok. While fuelling fantasies for Rohan, Ankit, Harpreet and Sahil, the show also throws challenges that lead to life-changing perceptions. Sahil admitted, before the show went on air, that "it’s not easy to please the hottest girl". With gorgeous girls as attendants, an in-house pool area to have a party at, a private bar, a golf course and a lake right outside the balcony, you’d think that these guys are having the time of their life. Indeed, they are.
But fantasies know no bounds. Ankit says, "I want to go swimming with sharks in the Bahamas. I love deep sea diving and I’ve done it in Langkawi, Malaysia, and Andaman and Nicobar islands." Harpreet is an adventure junkie too: "It was a thrill to go on a bike race on the show. I’d love to go party with my buddies in Ibiza next." Sahil wants to go skydiving. "It was simply awesome when I went partying with girls in the middle of the ocean on a deserted island in Pattaya. Next, I want to have a drunken night out in Las Vegas with all my pals!" he says.
Our city boys are no less adventurous. VJ and actor, Gaurav Kapur says, "I want to spend a whole day on my own yacht in the middle of the Mediterranean with a couple of friends and jet-skis." Actor Karan Singh Grover too seems to share the fascination for yachts: "I want to buy a yacht and sail around the world!"
Model and actor Milind Soman takes it a step higher, literally. No skydiving or jet skiing for him. "My fantasy will be fulfilled the day I successfully climb Mount Everest!" he exclaims.
But if you thought that the men are only looking for an adrenalin rush, think again. Actor Rohit Roy says, "My ultimate fantasy is to start looking like Tom Cruise, get the talent of Aamir Khan, acquire the stature of Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) and get marooned on an island with Elizabeth Taylor. She won’t be able to resist my charm and I will finally be able to do what I’ve wanted to do her since long… ask her why in the name of God did she marry Larry Fortenski?"
