Why do we watch a show in which men and women set themselves up for rejection? Falling in love is risky, but what makes it even riskier to fall in love with someone that ten other people have fallen in love with and in front of everyone across the nation.
We all know that the show just isn’t realistic, but it is nice to dream of helicopter rides, evening gowns and dates on a secluded beach. And thanks to the producers they are able to live out these fairy tales.
In some ways, the show promotes the concept of falling in love with romance more than it portrays true life. True life includes financial difficulties and hectic work schedules and communication struggles and just plain work that a good marriage takes. You don’t see any of that on the show.
Why do we watch? Because we love every minute of it.
There have been 13 seasons of the Bachelor and 4 seasons of the Bachelorette. Has any good came out of it for these lucky contenders? Yes, Season 1 Trista and Ryan Rutter married in December of 2003, and Byron and Mary Delgado are still together despite their Thanksgiving fight back in 2007 that landed Mary in jail.
I have a feeling this season is going to be a little different. I’m still not sure what is going to happen with DeAnna supposedly coming back to ruffle some feathers with Jason. – He better not take her back. She was an idiot to choose Jesse over Jason to begin with.
I absolutely looooooove Melissa from Dallas and Stephanie is beginning to grow on me. I can’t wait to see who he chooses and we already know she accepts his proposal but hopefully this couple will make it down the altar.
