The Vortex of Reality TV: The Bachelor

I’m a busy person. I work two jobs, sometimes a third that pops up every now and again. I’m a single mom of a very busy kiddo. I have pets to feed and care for. Groceries to purchase; bathroom to clean. etc., etc. So I’m a bit ashamed to say I’ve been caught up in this season of The Bachelor. I didn’t even realize it was on again (I watched it a couple of seasons, then lost interest at some point.), but I stumbled across an episode a week or two ago. Now I can’t seem to look away. I caught up on a few episodes on Hulu. It’s pitiful; I have no self-control.

It’s not that the bachelor is all that fantastic.

Ben, The Bachelor

I mean, he’s cute and all (not entirely sure I like his hair, but that’s a workable problem), but what’s more interesting, and I hate to say this, is the girls and all their histrionics. Tonight’s episode had two girls going home, crying, wondering what they did wrong. Ladies! Seriously?? If I were on that show being sent home, I think I would be crying because, Oh my Lord, the whole world has seen me act like there’s only one man left on the planet.

I know, it hurts to not be the one. But it’s also got to be hard to seriously think you’re the one, when there are so many other girls spending just as much time, or more, with the same guy. I’d be crying that the vacation was over, the adventure in all these different places – over; the slumber party atmosphere – over. Who knows, maybe that’s what they’re really crying about, but the producers won’t let them say that. Be sure you tell the camera how fab he was and how much you wanted to be here until the end.

And then there’s always the crazy chick. Enter Courtney.

Don't let her cuteness fool you!

She shows a sweet, sexy side to Ben and her psycho kitty side to the girls. Nevermind last week when she said she wanted to rip someone’s head off and verbally assault her. I have a feeling if she’s capable of verbalizing that, she’s physically capable of dishing out much worse. Look out ladies. This week she pulled a Vienna, taking her alone time with The Bachelor to intimate heights. Let’s hope Ben watched that season of The Bachelor and goes to school on Jake’s dime, if you know what I mean.

See, I told you. I’ve watched a season or two too many of The Bachelor. I thought I had recovered from my reality weakness, but looks as thought I’ve relapsed. I don’t think I’ll hit rock bottom until this season is complete because judging from the previews, Courtney gets called out by Ben, and I can’t miss that, can I?

Time to get my own reality.
