I have persisted in watching The Bachelor even though I hate it because Christian keeps turning it on and I keep watching it. What's another TWO hours, right? The last time I wrote about The Bachelor someone encouraged me to vote against it by not watching it. I agree with this in theory--then again: Arrested Development. Then again: Lone Star. Then again: Two and a Half Men apparently thrives even though I have never watched it. I rest my case.
Last night Brad enchanted us with his principled stand against cheating. He has never cheated. He has NEVER cheated. He has a lot of integrity. I guess I just thought I saw him kissing five or so girls in 45 or so minutes last night and urging one of them to put it all on the line for him even though he went ahead and sent her home in the next rose ceremony. Brad feels strongly that the women should not hold back or try not to get hurt or maintain any shred of dignity--all while handily dismissing all the widest girls within the first three weeks. Impressive!
But you can't give Brad all the credit--I'm sure the producers have something to do with it. And I think they are the masterminds behind such dates as oceanophobe walking on ocean floor and (coming up next week) putting the girl with a dead race car-driving-fiance into a--wait for it--race car. After putting the same girl whose fiance died in a plane crash into a--wait for it--plane. If Anne Frank were on the bachelor I'm pretty sure Brad would take her on a date to a cramped attic.
It's all so exciting. Speaking of exciting, I've got a a $75 Give Away for you. You can use it on an Eames lounge chair, if you'd like. Please vote with your presence by leaving a comment. Let's make this the Two and a Half Men of give aways!
