The Bachelor

I recognize it's a little sick that I'm about to sit down on my couch for the next 3 hours watching the finale of "The Bachelor" and then the "After the Final Rose" show.  What have I become?

I don't watch it, believing any of it is true.  I don't believe anybody's falling in love, let alone that one man is falling in love simultaneously with about 4 women at the same time.  No, that's not love.  I know better.

I'm not sure why I'm watching it.  But I've devoted many television hours the last several weeks to this sick little reality show.  There's no one on it that I've even liked.  If Jake, the bachelor, would keep his beautiful mouth shut, I might like him.  He's very good looking (AMAZINGly so, as a matter of fact), but once I saw him cry on Vienna's shoulder when he was scared about his upcoming bunjee jump, he just became a little too wimpy. 

All this crying, week after week, and all this drama has me yelling at my television set.  And maybe that's why I love it.  I can direct my anger at people and issues I don't even know or really care about. 

I've heard the ratings are up this season-  Higher than they've been in 5 years.  So I'm not the only one watching.  I just wonder, are there people out there who really believe Jake and Vienna or Jake and Tenly are going to live happily ever after.  And do they find it a little curious that it's down to the final rose ceremony and he's just not sure which one he wants to marry and which one he wants to break up with??!!

It starts in less than 10 minutes.  So let me make my prediction now.  Jake isn't going to end up with either girl.  Or he's going to call up one of the girls he's already ditched and beg them to come be his wife.  Who knows?  One thing is for sure tho... THIS is going to be the MOST DRAMATIC ROSE CEREMONY EVER!
