I've been watching The Bachelor since the show started. I missed the season when the older guy with the long hair ended up choosing the hispanic girl that Bob Guinney cut. I think those two are still together. I also missed the Andrew Firestone season. Other than that--I've seen 'em all. I know I shouldn't be bragging about this. It's just a fact.
I've embarrassed myself at more than one of Sam's work parties when I become too animated discussing the show. In case you are wondering, my two favorite bachelors were Andy Baldwin (an officer and a gentlemen!) and prince Lorenzo. Don't be a hater. I just thought he was cute.
Where were we? Oh yeah, so after watching so many episodes, I have some advice for the ladies. Sam always says the show does nothing to advance the cause of women. It's because they make fools of themselves. So here are some words of wisdom to help them out.
1. Don't get drunk. I know the alcohol is free and flowing--remember, you are there to find true love. Don't get wasted.
2. Don't do party tricks on the first night. Remember last season when that one girl ripped open a beer can with her teeth? Then that other one did a back handspring in her dress. Still another pulled the bachelor aside and sang him a song in her best opera voice. None of this is getting you anywhere. We are all cringing at home. Stop.
3. Never, under any circumstances, remove your panties and give them to the bachelor.
4. Don't be catty--at least have the good sense not to slander another girl on camera--it is unbecoming.
5. Leave with dignity. Don't cry, don't swear, don't go crazy. Don't say how it was meant to be. Don't talk about the wedding you had all planned out for you and Jason. Just go quietly into the night.
Now that we have that all cleared up, one of my favorite bloggers Mandee did a post about The Bachelor. Her husband thinks this season is going to be the most dramatic rose ceremony yet when Jason chooses the host Chris Harrison. I'll be watching!
