I ask myself Why? Why?? Why??? WHY do I still watch The Bachelor?!?!?! I know, believe me I know, this show is dramatic, mindless, and just ridiculous television, but maybe that’s what I like about it.
This season in particular I do not like the bachelor himself, I do not really care for any of the girls, I don’t see any real connections… yet hear I am , 10 weeks in, watching these crazy women scream at each other about screaming at each other. The funniest part is that Fiance is sitting next to me because he too is 10 weeks in…
Every week Fiance says he does not want to watch, yet every week he sits next to me and asks “How can they all be so dumb!?” and “Why doesn’t that guy ever say anything?!” We, then have our continuing conversation about what would happen if I was on the Bachelor. I’m pretty sure that I’d win. I mean I’m very competitive, and it would definitely be a competition for me.”I’m not here to make friends!”
Fiance says that I’d be the girl everyone hates… I don’t care though, as long I get that final rose. I’ve tried to convince Fiance to be the bachelor, and I’ll be one of the girls. But he won’t go for it.
While watching the Bachelor, I do like that I can sit hear, use my laptop to pin items on pinterest, pick up the clothes I left all over the floor this morning, eat dinner, and organize my purse. That’s why I enjoy the mindless TV shows I am now addicted to. I do not actually have to watch them. I can just listen every few minutes, look up once in a while, and still be able to have a full conversation about how crazy and mean Courtney is at work the next day.
Ben’s, the bachelor’s, final choice comes as no surprise. At this point, we all know that he is just as crazy as his new fiancé. I am relieved it’s finally over because now I will not have to skip the last half of Zumba to run home and find out who gets the date card. However, I am really going to miss waking up to watch Kelly Ripa reenact scenes from the show with her guest host.
Side note: Next season, Fiance and I have deceided to turn the Bachelor into a drinking game. So evertime someone says “vulnerable” or “guard up” we’ll just take a shot. (I’m pretty sure that just “vulnerable” was used 52 times in the last episode.)
To bring this blog post to an end I just have one question:
Wait….WHAT?!?! A commercial for Dancing with the Stars just informed me that it premiers next Monday. Damn it. I guess I’ll never get to finish a Monday Zumba class…
