The Bachelor

Imagine dating what seems to be a really awesome guy. You get to go on extraordinary dates and you get to literally have the greatest time ever! But WAIIIT. Turns out, there’s other girls dating him. And while you guys date, he is picking his favorites and one by one letting girls go. This is what the show The Bachelor is like. Recently, I just started watching this past season of The Bachelor out of pure boredom on a saturday afternoon. To my surprise, I actually found it quite interesting.. But it can get kind of annoying to watch as well due to the fact that it just seems extremely fake. This one guy is essentially saying the same things to each girl, taking some out individually and then the rest on "group dates". I don’t know about you, but I would like to be the only one dating the same guy at a given time… And plus, the way "the Bachelor" says good bye to each girl is so cliche and the same every single time. The girl is standing there bawling her eyes out because she didn’t get an oh so sacred rose and he says anything along these lines: -"This is by far the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make" -"You’re so special" -"You just aren’t the one for me" -"I want you know how great I think you are" Don’t get me wrong, all these factors make the show 1092384 times more fun to watch it. But I say, why can’t you people just be normal and go out and date like a normal person?? The experience may be great but how do you even know if you can learn who a person is from super extravagant dates on camera, let alone want to spend the rest of your life with them?
