I AM ADDICTED TO WATCHING THE BACHELOR AND THE BACHELORETTE.
There I said it! Whew, that feels better. Now that you know my secret addiction will you still be my friend? I can just see it now, my followers will drop like flies, the comments will stop, other blogs will make mention about the poor soul over at Shady Creek Lane that is a hopelessly lost and confused about reality.
I get so excited when a new season begins. Monday nights from 8:00-10:00 you will find me cuddled up in the recliner with my fleece blankie watching all the drama.
I certainly know and understand that the whole format of the show is to create "the perfect backdrop for romance" in every episode by flying the Bachelor/Bachelorette and their potential husbands/wives to exotic places around the world. Who couldn't fall in love in those circumstances anyway. Put me somewhere tropical with warm breezes and I'll bet I could fall in
lust, um love too. Well put a really hunky, rich, handsome, successful, sweet, perfect on the surface male there and I think I could give it a try for sure. (That is if I were young, successful and beautiful...and single. I am still a little in touch with reality you see.)
This season we have Ben, the bachelor, and these 25 gorgeous beauties.
Not necessarily my type Ben but then again I am old enough to be your mother, hah!.
In every episode there is my favorite and this season it is Kacie. I am rooting for her all the way.
And there always has to be the dreaded WENCH to keep things stirred up. This season it is Courtney.
I know most of you that take the time to read my blog will most likely be shaking your heads at this post, wondering about my own well being and sanity but hey, sometimes I need "fluff" to help me not get so caught up in things that really matter, like the economy and politics.
Speaking of politics, we are in the middle of an election year and I think those running ought to have Rose Ceremonies to eliminate the candidates, that way they at least get a beautiful rose and don't feel so kicked to the curb.
Oh ya, and Chris Harrison would be a great debate moderator too.
WHAT ARE YOUR GUILTY PLEASURES?
