If you've known me for a while or have read some of my previous posts, you know that my biggest guilty pleasure is The Bachelor. It is honestly one of the worst shows on television.
As well as the best.
I haven't watched the past few seasons. One, because I don't have too much time. Two, because many of the past seasons have been The Bachelorette, and I just can't bring myself to watch a whole bunch of dudes vying for the affections of one woman. Not to mention the fact that the last woman they used (Emily) was the most fake and boring woman who constantly used her sob story as a crutch. I mean, who wants to waste their time with her, amirite guys?
Anyway, I've committed to watching this season, and tweeting nonsense during the show (when I'm not working). If you don't follow me on Twitter, you probably should. Just one click on the thingamajig on the right side of my blog*.
If you haven't watched The Bachelor before, maybe this is your chance to watch it and understand why people love it so much. It is one of those shows that looks terrible before you watch it. The people on the show are terrible. The drama is terrible. The buildup is terrible. The way the competition even works is terrible.
But there's something about it that makes you embrace all the terrible things and keep watching to find out if it really will be "the most dramatic rose ceremony ever." Or to find out which girl faints or cries or gets drunk or leaves the show, even though the excessive previews pretty much explicitly tell you how it all goes down.
And if that's not enough to entice you to watch, might I interest you in joining...
KIANWI'S BACHELOR FANTASY LEAGUE!!!!
Yea, you read it right. A Bachelor Fantasy League.
Pick three girls.
One of your girls cries? Two points.
One of your girls gets drunk? Three points.
One of your girls warns the Bachelor about another girl? Five points.
One of your girls returns after being eliminated from the show? Ten. Fucking. Points.
There are many other ways to get points, and I'm helping Kianwi with some ideas, but the coolest part is that you get to pick one of your girls as a quarterback each week, and she gets double points.
Anyway, head on over to the league to get all the deets.
I meant for this post to be one, maybe two sentences, just to promote the fantasy league. But look how I've ranted.
I dunno. I guess that once I start talking about The Bachelor, I just can't bring myself to stop.
I'm such a loser.
