I watch The Bachelor. And not just off-handedly while flipping channels, or once in awhile if I happen to be home. On Mondays I make a point to have dinner made by 8 so I can give each episode (and the adult beverages my friend Amber always brings over) my full attention. This garners me endless teasing from my boyfriend and I’ve only recently come to terms with admitting my slight obsession to friends. But I can’t help it, I’m hooked. The show is simultaneously appalling and mesmerizing. I find myself yelling at the TV (‘How can you possibly think you are falling in love after two weeks?!? Are you crazy!?!’) while rooting for my fave girls (Jillian, you were way too independent and awesome to fall for these reality-TV shenanigans…but do I want you to be the next Bachelorette?? Hell yes!). What is the deal?? Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels this way! And while you’re at it, any predictions for tonight’s finale? I’ve got my money on Molly…unless Deanna totally crashes the party!!!
