My facebook has been flooded with status updates about The Bachelor. Will someone please, please, PLEASE explain to me why anyone watches this show? Why do former/present Young Womens' leaders watch this show? Why do mothers and daughters have special parties to watch this show? Is the premise not a bunch of women falling all over one man, routinely making out and doing degrading 'challenges'? Why didn't one of them catch swine flu and pass it on to everyone else through the bachelor..? Ok, maybe thats just spiteful.
I have a feeling if this show was based in some Middle Eastern local with women in veils, everyone would be crying how awful it is, but because the women are "independent" and can dress and act as brazenly as they like, its suddenly ok?
But really, if someone has a legitimate reason why you or anyone else you know watches it, or thinks it is somehow ok to promote, could you please enlighten me? Because for now, with the information I have, I'm pretty disgusted. Thanks.
