Lazy recycled kiddie smut.
7 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad have been around for a long time as ABC is too lazy to create a new franchise to air on Monday nights. Disney obviously can keep costs low by hiring restaurant servers, struggling models and exotic dancers instead of real actors and then have them spout off "unscripted" kiddie drivel with bleeps to entertain people who embrace mediocrity instead of actually trying to find better but are too lazy to bother.

Until people say "Enough" and change the channel or, better yet, turn the television off Disney will keep churning out this kiddie smut indefinitely.

Unless you love seeing Schadenfreude over and over again as it's the only way you'll feel better about your sordid life even if you know what you're seeing on The Bachelor is staged, pass. Pass immediately.
