Bates Family on Good Morning America

The Bates Family Shows an Impressive Lack of Pop Culture Knowledge

They've got 19 kids, choose to homeschool, and don't let their children watch TV. No, we're not talking about the Duggar family, but the Bates family, the stars of TLC's new United Bates of America. The family, who are longtime friends of American's favorite large brood, have scored their own prime-time reality show that will follow Gil and Kelly Jo Bates's adventures with their 10 girls and nine boys living in the hills of Tennessee. The family, who live without TV, Internet, or even credit cards, appeared on Good Morning America today to promote the show. Watch how they respond when they are asked about some pretty well-known pop culture figures, and tell us, do you think we'd be better off if our kids were shielded from today's entertainment stars?

I think it's good in the sense that the girls won't be comparing themselves to models/actresses.  But otherwise, how will they relate to people in the "real world" who know who these people are?  No matter how insignificant reality stars and their ilk are, it's sort of a combo of refreshing yet strange when people don't know even mainstream pop culture!
