The Bachelor, Season 297

Okay, so Jason is cute and all that. He has a son who he seems to totally dig. He says it wasn’t his choice to end his marriage.

But, Ladies, let’s think for a minute here.

His ex may very well be watching the show and cackling, saying, “You dumb girls! Just wait until he gets the ring on your finger. Then it’s all Neanderthal Man. He’ll expect you to do all the housework and caring for his son Ty (every other weekend … ooh, now THAT’s a hard task) and to quit your job and have no hobbies. DeAnna made the right choice!!!!!”

I’m not saying he’s a bad guy. I wouldn’t know. But how can thousands of women apply to be on a show to marry a guy based only on some (heavily edited) TV show? His digging his son could all be an act. Why the hell would you leave your kid for weeks on end to find LOVE? Try Match.com or Chemistry.com or the local Gymboree, for God’s sake.

These women are fantasizing about an instant family, and it just doesn’t happen that way. Ty may hate you, darling! You may have fist fights with the ex-wife. The in-laws could turn out to be real jerks.

I have an idea: let’s get engaged after getting to know someone for WEEKS with cameras in our faces and the guy kissing a bunch of other women.

And, yes, I continue to watch and love the show, just like The Housewives series on Bravo. I’m sad and sick and wrong.

  2. LOL Everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame and some don't care how they degrade themselves to get it. Did you see the version called The Farmer wants a Wife (or something like that) You got this bus full of supermodel wannabees heading out to a real working farm (in high heels no less) and they are all complaining about the hard work they have to do... What exactly were they expecting :P

  3. I'm only watching if a meeting with the ex is part of the process. Though I have to say that I have two great ex's. One didn't want kids. The other wanted to live in western KS. This made both of them incompatible with me, but still good decent guys.

  4. Too too funny post. I used to watch this a then just gave up. But I have my sick little pleasures like Cops. I guess I can feel superior to people who think they can outrun a cop with a radio, an evil dog and a helicopter.

    Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

  5. Isn't reality enough? Why do we have to entertain ourselves with "reality" tv...which is about as far from reality as one can get. When is our world going to awaken to the present moment and understand that the only thing "real" is the here and now? Why are we always trying to escape what is available to us EACH MOMENT? Just something to consider...
