The Bachelor

I. Am. Behind.

I know. I finally caught up, and here are my thoughts…

But, seriously!? That’s how it ended? The one show I watch on my DVR lately? I feel like a part of my life has been stolen from me by this season.

Do I believe that a person can fall in love with someone in 10 weeks? Yes, I do. I don’t, however, believe you can when you are dating multiple people. The whole idea of it bothers me. Even if I was the one “chosen” at the end, I would replay the episodes and wonder how he could really love me if he had feelings for others at the same time. That is not the way relationships are supposed to be. Two people should be both mutually crazy about each other, and only each other. That would mess with my head. I totally understood why some of their parents were hesitant when they had their home town visits. I would want someone to only love my daughter, and be over the moon about her because they couldn’t imagine their life with anyone else.

All he could say was:

“I’m not sure. There are ___ other girls.”

“It’s okay.” My goodness, Andi was hilarious with her, “If I have to hear it’s okay one more time!!…”

I still watched it though. Why? It is such a mindless escape. A guilty pleasure.

I felt like Juan Pablo had no connection with Nikki. She was so robotic during the last episode. I don’t know about you, but I need more than a physical attraction to want to spend the rest of my life with someone. They weren’t even in their real life environments. You can’t get to know someone the real way by being whisked away on all of these adventures. Yes, they had a blast on vacation, but what are they like in real life?

He was right in not proposing to her. They need to get to know each other way better. I truly think these two are not going to last forever.

It was so rushed. I could literally see the pressure fuming off of him to make a decision that he knew would not be the right one.

Marriage is huge. As a woman, I could never accept a proposal from someone knowing that the day before he wasn’t sure if he would marry me or someone else. I want to be the only one.

Hopefully she will watch all the episodes back and recognize the lack of chemistry and connection. I believe in love and romance. All he could say to her was I like you. I really, really like you. She deserves more than that. He’s not into her. He is too into himself~ a sort of narcissist. I feel like these two just don’t have “it”.

There’s no chance.

  1. ‘sss okay’. I like you. It’s okay. WINK. Sick – from your blog to my ears, friend. Well stated and bold-faced.

    All respect for J-Pabs went out the window on fantasy over nights. I feel cheated this season and at the very least appreciated Chris Harrison’s after the final rose, below the belt blows to Juan… Also I was giddy seeing Ari from Emily’s season sitting. Please oh please, be the Bach. I loved Ari. Just a side note.

  2. I’ve watched this show on and off since it debuted in 2002. I have to say, I truly think this was a terrible season. I have a feeling everyone, including ABC, is ready to be done with him.

    VERY excited for Andi to be the next Bachelorette. I have a feeling that will be a great season.

  3. Oh my goodness. I agree with a lot of what you said. As the weeks went on I just kept thinking, “Could he BE any more awful!?” After The Rose was SO awkward I couldn’t handle it. Hopefully Andi’s Bachelorette will be better. And by the way, I KNEW they were going to pick him to be the Bachelor and I KNEW he was going to be awful. 🙂

  4. Also my guilty pleasure, however, I did not watch it this season. Just wasn’t feelin Juan Pablo. However, I think we have some upcoming Monday nights this summer with a bottle of wine and The Bachelorette.

  5. This makes me chuckle. Passionate stream of bachelor consciousness writing at its best. I don’t watch it and Juan Pablo sounds kinda like a boob 🙂

  6. Ohhh yes I love that you wrote about this! I watch every season…I remember when they picked Juan Pablo I was like “That’s it! I’m not watching this season.” What did I do? Watched every episode…waste.

  7. it’s OK….I like this piece…I really, really like it a lot! LOL!
    I swear that I will never watch again after every season, and somehow get sucked back in every time. Something about him made my skin crawl….you sign up for a TV dating show, but want your personal life to remain personal….something lost in translation perhaps?!
