What is happening with the Bachelor this year? I thought that I was in for some good old fashioned trash TV especially after last season with Charlie O’Connell being all snarky and in on the joke. Apparently the good people at ABC didn’t think the joke was all that funny and went straight back to bland stat. This new doctor guy makes me cringe all through the show. He’s got the dialog from the producers down pat already and the show’s just started. “Oh, it’s starting to be real.” “It’s really real now”. “The realness is setting in.” “I’m going on a journey of realness.” “I think I’m really ready to get real on my journey to find love.”
Okay, so then the one crazy chick lets loose with her “I’m ready to reproduce now” spiel and the doctor looks at her like she just took a double dose of crazy through an IV and kind of laughs smugly. then he, naturally, cuts her at the “most dramatic rose ceremony ever.” And she gets mad. Of course. And goes a little bonkers. So that could’ve been interesting. BUt now she’s off the show!! So we’re left with the dead eyed ex beauty pageant queens. Has anyone ever been as boring as an ex pageant bitch? Is there some sort of pageant rule that they all have to wear their hair the exact same way? Are they allergic to sarcasm or humor in general? Why can’t anyone have a hint of personality?
I’ve never hated anyone contestant as much as Trista of Bachelorette with her baby voice and passive aggressive “I’m going to be a fucking star if it kills me –but I’m the super duper nicest gal who’ll ever step on your head on her way to the top.”
But this season is looking like it’s just going to be plain boring. And American Idol isn’t exactly helping matters. They’re just going for normal crazy. People in costumes we already know are going to be crazy. Note to producers: go find the ones that the crazy lies just below the surface. It’s much more interesting to watch.
Baby angst is only cured by really really good/bad reality TV and I NEED ME SOME.
