ABC has finally set the date for the premiere of the new season of the “Bachelor.” The madness beings again for the sixteenth time on January 2. Let’s be honest, last season of the “Bachelorette” was less than thrilling. I think everyone can agree that although they loved J.P. (what a cutie), Ashley was painfully annoying. Apparently, things are working out well for them and they’re shockingly still together living in a NYC apartment. Bentley did add some comic relief, but most of the dates were just plain awkward and left Ashley in tears, again.

This season, “The Bachelor” promises to be better and I believe it because from the start of Ashley’s journey, I always loved Ben F. I, like most fans, want him to find love and can’t wait to see who he chooses. We can only hope Ben doesn’t take any of his suitors on dumb dates like a flash mob or kite making.

Ben is also very excited for this season. According to AOLTV, he has claimed to be in love only three times (one of them was unfortunately with Ashley). The season premiere will be two hours long–obviously overdone with too many interviews and fake tears. I can’t wait to see who the new cast is. But if all else fails, Ben, I’ll be your girlfriend!

Meet Michelle Money. (Yes, her last name really is Money). Michelle is just another hopeless romantic on this season of “The Bachelor.” But unlike most of the other contestants (minus the chick with the fangs), she is borderline insane. (more…)

The Bachelor is the new Real World

Once upon a time, MTV’s the Real World was a societal and pop culture icon.  Then it turned into a sloppy, drunk, orgy for any bottom feeder trying to snatch their 15-minutes of fame.

IMDB.com tells me the show is now in it’s 23rd season in our nation’s capital.  How this has happened, baffles me to no end.  The last good season I can remember was Season 9: New Orleans and that’s partly because I was in love with Danny.  Nevertheless, the show has continued and apparently has an audience with nothing better to do with their time.

This brings me to the Bachelor on ABC.  Another show that might have been good once with slightly desperate women bidding for the attention of the re-incarnation of Ken Barbie.  Now we have slutty, pathetic and flat out insulting represenatations of women throwing themselves at a guy they won’t end up marrying anyways.

So to Jake the Pilot and ABC: bleep off.  You’re no American Hero.
