Monica the Medium is a brand new one-hour unscripted show that is scheduled to premiere Tuesday night. Monica the Medium follows Monica Ten-Kate, a 21-year-old college undergrad and spirit medium who loves to give readings to almost anyone she feels strongly about. In the new reality show, some of her readings are given in the strangest places, such as a retail store, where she speaks to a sales clerk in Episode 1, entitled “Blind Date.”
Aside from doing her readings, Monica the Medium is trying her best to find a nice guy to date. Dating can be a problem for her, since most of the guys that she meets end up being freaked out by her special powers. ABC Family viewers will get to tag along with Monica Ten-Kate as she readies herself for her blind date.
According to Monica, her social skills can sometimes be a bit off because she spends most of her time with dead people. Originally from Northern Virginia, according to her mini-bio, Monica Ten-Kate always knew that she had a special gift, a gift that didn’t really start to blossom until her teen years. Now that she is a college girl, attending classes at Pennsylvania State University, she has fully accepted that she has a special gift that is meant to help people. In a previous interview with Onward State, she made the following statement.
“The best part of being a medium is the gift I get to give people that I read … Just being able to see their face change from sadness to tears of joy from hearing from their loved ones is probably one of the best feelings I could ever have.”
In real life, people can book private reading sessions with Monica, though right now she is booked up, according to her Facebook page. Monica’s clients report that she has helped them in unspeakable ways, such as connecting them with their loved ones, and relaying positive messages that help bring closure to grieving families. Best Psychic Directory, a site that reviews psychic mediums, appears to have given the talented young lady a good review. Many past clients report that they enjoyed their session with Monica, and that her readings were spot-on. Her warmth and caring attitude is also something that her clients noted.
Despite Monica’s so-called success rate with the general public, there are many skeptics who don’t believe Monica has any special abilities, and they don’t believe that she should be given her own show.
There are also some ABC Family viewers who may not be sure if this kind of show is appropriate for a family channel. Here are some comments from ABC Family’s Facebook page.
“No thanks. I will be watching switched at birth tomorrow though. Scripted shows and less reality please.”
For others, this looks like a great show that many are planning to watch.
“Can’t wait to watch.”
“I am going to check it out.”
Monica the Medium is a show that is sure to connect with ABC audiences. Watch Monica in action tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC Family. The Inquisitr recently reported on ABC’s Katrina 10 Years After The Storm.
