"THE BACHELOR" is a degrading 'reality' show where fifteen desperate women vie to be the wife of a 'bachelor'.
23 April 2002 | by Aussie StudSee all my reviews

Is the dating scene REALLY this BAD that one must resort to competing on a 'reality television show' in order to find that 'perfect match'?

Apparently so, according to ABC's "THE BACHELOR", an embarrassing and degrading 'entertainment' show where 15 single women are courted by 'Alex', a 31 year-old handsome, professional successful bachelor who must decide which lady (if at all) he prefers to be his wedded bride.

While FOX already conquered the smutty side of this premise with the exploitative and ground-breaking "WHO WANTS TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE" which ended in complete disaster (it was found out later that the groom had a violent domestic history - the wife filed for an annulment less than a few days later after the special aired on television), "THE BACHELOR" is a more mature approach to basically the same deal. In this case, Alex is not a millionaire, but he is professionally secure.

In reality, with looks combined, Alex would make the perfect catch for a single woman. As it yet goes to show that television still cannot grasp the meaning of the word 'reality', the fifteen women chosen to compete in this adventure are all young attractive in-shape ladies. If this was in fact a 'reality' show, all the women would be of different body shapes and sizes, ages and some may even be considered unattractive to general society. All the women featured in "THE BACHELOR" are between the ages of 20-30 and appear to be as man-hungry as those who would attend a male strip-joint.

I find it very hard to believe that all these women have trouble finding a reasonable date in 'the real world' that they had to resort to appearing on this television show in hopes of match-making with Mr. Alex. In this day and age, if life appears to be this terrible and trite for these women, "THE BACHELOR" really makes my life seem hopeless and meaningless.

"THE BACHELOR" is a show one can do without watching. It can be considered a guilty pleasure, but I find this kind of 'reality' rather sickening.

Whoever Alex decides to marry, I hope we get to see the spin-off, "THE DIVORCE". Now that would be true reality.
