5 Reasons (Good and Bad) to Watch The Bachelor

January 05, 2014

1. The New Queen of Mean

It never fails; one season a single lady is crowned as the Wicked Bitch of the West, and the following season, we forget all about her evil ways (though Courtney Robertson is hard to forget), and move on to despising/cheering for The Bachelor’s new queen of mean. Call us crazy, but it appears as though Tierra fits the bill. Evil stare? Nailed it. Two personalities? Check. And last but certainly not least, use of the classic line, “I just don’t get along with the other girls…” Run, Sean, run!

2. Sean Lowe: Hot Man (up for debate), Weird Kisser?

Bachelor Sean has a great (HOT!) body, no question. However, we couldn’t help but notice that his lips do this weird THING when he kisses any one of his eligible 25 bachelorettes. It’s like he’s kissing, but not? Don’t get us wrong, again, he’s hot – smokin’ hot. But the second he puckers up to plant one on lady Desiree (or Kristy, Lesley, Sarah…), he reminds us of a baby duckling.

3. The One That Got Away…

Every season, one of the girls cracks under the pressure of competing against twenty-four other women for one bachelor. Understandable. There are two ways to look at this situation: One, the girl who leaves because she is uncomfortable fighting for one man’s attention among 24 others is probably wife material. Two, how DARE a bachelorette leave the extremely unlikely dating circumstances that T.V. Land has so generously provided her with in the hopes that she will find true love for the real world! Are you kidding me? The Bachelor has been running for sixteen seasons now; did Bachelorette X not know what she was getting herself into? To boot, Bachelorette X probably had to sell her soul to ABC to be there anyway. Listen lady, you might as well see through what you signed up for, ‘cause the network will be turning your minor meltdowns into nationwide emotional episodes regardless…

4. The Ex-Factor

This has to be one of the most consistent reasons to watch The Bachelor. The Bachelor history dictates that at some point this season, an ex-boyfriend will show up. Not that Sean and his man muscles need to worry about such a bump in the road, but the process is pretty hysterical. The ex-boyfriend shows up, the bachelorette is torn between two men, and then tells The Bachelor about her “tough choice”. Yes, the bachelorette competing for The Bachelor’s affections will tell him that she has a tough time choosing between her ex, and him. Dear Bachelorette X: THIS IS WHY YOU CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS.

5. The Proposal, the Reunion.

Let’s be honest; The Bachelor Reunion is more of a spectacle than the actual dating process. That moment where The Bachelor’s eyes are opened to all of the women’s true colors? Epic television. Come to think of it, we watch the entire season just so that we understand all of the drama surrounding Chris Harrison’s soul-searching questions. As for the proposal, it’s all about two things: that ridiculously good-looking Neil Lane diamond, and the limo ride home for the unlucky lady that The Bachelor sends home.
