Unless you love seeing Schadenfreude over and over again as it's the only way you'll feel better about your sordid life even if you know what you're seeing on The Bachelor is staged, pass. This show, and its a/b alternative "The Bachelorette", are easily the most pathetic, eyeroll-inducing, "reality" shows of them all.I can't fathom any good reason for wasting an hour of my life watching them, never mind a whole season. The worst part is where they're interviewing the "star" in one of those moments where they're "baring their soul" accompanied by thoughtful music. Much is made in the fan mags about the couples resulting from this show.But hey, at least when you watch it, you can be thankful that you don't have to be there in the middle of it.
The executives at ABC are laughing all the way to the bank.
I am not a fan of these type shows, they are pointless and stupid.
Along with his boy-next-door good looks, his ripped body makes him one of the sexiest bachelors they have ever featured. He seems happy that the show never misses an opportunity to showcase his sculpted muscles.
Whether it's working out shirtless or lounging by the pool, Sean's near-perfect body is always on display.
There are two related series: The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad.
Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Season 4 Season 5 Season 6 Season 7 Season 8 Season 9 Season 10 Season 11 Season 12 Season 13 Season 14 Season 15 Season 16 Season 17 Season 18 Season 19 Season 20 Season 21 The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad have been around for a long time as ABC is too lazy to create a new franchise to air on Monday nights.
While FOX already conquered the smutty side of this premise with the exploitative and ground-breaking "WHO WANTS TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE" which ended in complete disaster (it was found out later that the groom had a violent domestic history - the wife filed for an annulment less than a few days later after the special aired on television), "THE BACHELOR" is a more mature approach to basically the same deal.
In this case, Alex is not a millionaire, but he is professionally secure.
You know the story: 25 bimbettes vie for the love of one man.
The bachelor, suave and well-to-do, dates the girls (in groups and sometimes one-on-one), and at the end of every episode he eliminates some of them.
CBS should be ashamed of itself for promoting the "dashing prince/beautiful princess" fantasy. You run away from people in your circle who tell you everything they're thinking, every time they're thinking it--here it's seen as deep. What they SHOULD do is a "where are they now" on the people who AREN' T picked and what work they're getting in Hollywood as a result of being seen on "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette", since that seems to be the real reason anyone puts up with this nonsense.
