Good for a Guilty Pleasure
2 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show stars a hunk of a man that is loaded with money, good looks, charm and confidence and about two dozen women who are all dying for his affection, love, attention and sperm. Yes, sperm. These women want The Bachelor to be the father of their future children. Dare to dream.

This show is good for a guilty pleasure for viewers, but should not be taken seriously. No show-winner yet has been able to make the relationship work and head into marriage without breaking up within months or weeks of the finale. This show format is NOT a good way to find love. I mean, come on, how can you fall in love with someone who is basically "cheating" on you on national television, kissing other women, dating other women, feeling up other women, sharing dreams and futures with other women, not knowing whether he is being true to you or to them.

The relationships between the girls in the house is purely superficial and fake. No one cares about the other women or hates to see them go. All they want is that rose so they can stay on TV a bit longer and garner their 15 minutes of fame. Because once the show is over, no one remembers who was on the show or even who won.

It's fun to watch because it's a reality competition based show, but in the end, we don't really care if they end up married or in love. We want to see who wins, but don't try to tell us they've found their soul mate because everyone on the show is a 'ho. The host of the show is pimping out the women to the bachelor and everyone has to put their best show on to get that rose that means absolutely nothing in real life.

All of the roses die before the finale even airs. But this show is great for filling a guilty pleasure as a viewer. I don't watch the show for love, but for pure entertainment and drama, which the story editors do a good job on this show to keep the interests high, drama deep and entertainment strong. But don't tell me the purpose of this show is to find true love. The formula of the show goes against all the odds of finding true love.
