B&B Vol Love's Joy Hears Herself After Viewer Criticism: "It Touched Me Deeply"

Die-hard viewers aren’t afraid to voice their opinions on social media. Joey is often said to be “selfish” or “not showing any interest”. On the programme, he is approached by Zoë, one of the single ladies who have visited him, about the fact that he would not show any interest. Single Babette also notices this: in a conversation with Joy, she notices that it’s rather one-way traffic.

However, there is one reaction that “touches him deeply”, because “there is a grain of truth in it.”

I am grateful that I have now been able to learn this lesson,” he finished his letter.
