The Bachelor

So I was bored tonight, so I watched the season premiere of The Bachelor.

I have never watched this show before. I know, I've been living in a cave for the past 4 years.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but...Is it for real?

It's so awful!

This season they decided to set it in romantic Pareeeeee.

First, even though the Bachelor was 33 years old, I think only one of the 25 perspective girlfriends was over 28.

Second, he was a doctor, and they were mostly secretaries or kindergarten teachers or professional cheerleaders - not that there's anything wrong with any of those professions - they're all noble and good, and yes, underpaid.

So the show's producers definitely went for maximization of economic and educational disparities, didn't they? Probably to make the Bachelor that much more attractive. And the women that much more desperate-looking.

There was one token doctor (she was the one over 28, and she ran around telling everyone how she really wanted to have babies NOW, and when he didn't pick her at the end of the episode, she went off the deep end and cried and yelled).

The episode went like this:

Girl 1: Omigod!! He's a doctor!! I'm so excited!

Girl 2: He's a doctor? Oooh, that means he's my type.

Girl 3: As soon as I heard that he's a doctor, I thought, "Wow, I know he's the One!" Besides, my eggs are rotting.

Girl 4: I've focused on my career until now, but now I'm ready for the next phase of my life. That is, the reproductive phase.

THB: (rolling my eyes) I'm so appalled! NONE of these people can speak any French!!
