I will admit it proudly: I am a reality tv junkie. I don’t know how I fell into this trap, but I hate it about myself. Well……maybe not hate…strongly dislike. I think it started back in college when I became obsessed with Ethan Zohn on Survivor, but I can’t be certain. All I know is that between all my Housewives, The Millionaire Matchmaker, and the Kartrashians (of course there are more shows I am not naming), I have a pretty full tv lineup. Throw in a Hardcore Pawn marathon or anything related to home improvement or cupcakes, and my day is shot. I really need an intervention.
And then there’s this stupid little trap called The Bachelor. Man, do I haaaaaatttteeeeeeee it. I really do. Yet, every season I tune in like an idiot, get annoyed by the people on the show, and feel I have to watch to the finale because I’m not a quitter. And at the end of every season, I always say the same thing……”No more. I’m never watching again!” Then the new season begins, I tune in, and the cycle begins all over again.
This season was by far the worst. I cannot stand Shawn (Sean, however he spells it). It probably has something to do with the fact that I’m not into blondies….or guys that prance around with their shirt off all the time….or guys that cry like babies on national television…or schmucks that have to go on a tv show to find love. It’s stupid. And don’t even get me started on Chris Harrison earning his dollar. What a chode. Three hours for a finale? That’s way too long for the finale. That’s way too much Chris Harrison. I did as I have done the last several seasons….tuned in for the last 15 minutes to see the man/child cry and act like he is heartbroken by dumping a chick. And then I proceed to cry when the fake proposal happens because I am a hopeless romantic.
I am super competitive….even with dumb shows like this, I like to make bets to see who will win. I’ve been on Team Katherine from the beginning (probably because she was the only girl who I thought wasn’t a sneaky, two faced garden tool) and am pumped that she is the winner. I feel bad though that she ended up with a fairy sprite like Shawn.
For the record, No More. I’m done and never watching again.
