I have a confession:
I HATE the bachelorette. I should probably clarify by saying that I don’t hate the actual female participant, Emily (we all pretty much know who she is -from our old stompin’ ground here), but I hate the show.
It’s cheesy. It’s embarrassing. It makes me want to cover my eyes and vomit.
I should also admit that I have actually only seen 3 episodes of this show EVER. The only reason I started watching it (which was about 3 weeks ago) was that there is a rumor going around that Emily picks the host of the show (sorry if I ruined that for you) and I find this to be super scandalous and potentially entertaining.
Other than that I find the show and its participant’s interaction quite painful to watch. Even Jef, whom I find the most charming of the guys, gets major eye roll from my living room couch.
Here’s the thing that bothers me- why do they always have to get engaged?! Does this bother anyone else? Seriously, what are the odds that this relationship, that has up to this point been non-monogamous, will last?
Almost none I’d say.
Furthermore, if a man were to propose to me after 6 or so weeks of “speed dates”, there is no way I would ever accept….especially if I was making out with another guy the night before!
You know what would impress me if I were Emily? If in that first weeks rose ceremony, or whatever the hell it is, a guy were to come up to me and say,
You know what? I won’t accept your rose because this whole thing feels a little ridiculous. But, I think you are beautiful and seem really down to earth so here is my phone number…you can call me when none of these douche bags works out.
For now I just hope that Emily is in on the joke and she realizes that fame and love are not one in the same.
Take the money and run, gurl.
Off my soap box (for now).
