Pradeep is featured as one of the members of the cast in the VH1 reality television series The Pickup Artist. He is 22 years old, and works as a researcher and a mathematician. His typical pickup line is straightforward though slightly dull, consisting of “Hi, my name is Pradeep. What’s your name?” Though this sort of opening might work for places such as college parties, he remains averse to such social gatherings and tends to stay away from them. He has directly stated that college parties are full of alpha males, and that alpha males tend to intimidate him greatly.
Each time he tries to hit on a girl, he finds himself driven to anxiety by his facial expressions and his own body language. He also claims that while he makes an effort to be engaging and humorous, he more often than not winds up offending others instead. He also thinks that maintaining a certain level of disorganization in his life will keep it surprising and interesting. One of his most memorable experiences was placing his hand on a girl’s leg during a movie, and finding that she was squeezing it tightly and favorably between them. When his fingers unintentionally wandered further down, however, that was the end of that relationship.
