The Bachelorette: A Rainbow Connection, the Love Clock that Wasn’t, and a Stalker-ish Letter

For tonight’s episode of the Bachelorette (did I mention it’s the 8th freakin’ season?) Chris Harrison had to break it down for the guys so they’d know what they signed up for: (1) there are 2 one-on-one dates up for grabs, (2) if you get a one-on-one, you must pack your bags because you might not get a rose/return to the house, (3) not everyone will get a date, (4) yada, yada, yada…  As if people don’t know the rules by now.

Bachelor By the Numbers: There’s No Crying in Baseball!

Week 5 finds the Bachelor and his harem in Puerto Rico.  There are two 1-on-1 dates up for grabs, and a group date, the latter of which consists of a baseball game.  The clue for the mystery date read: “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”  Lyndzi, who is about as coordinated on the field as Bambi learning to walk, said (rather unconvincingly),”These diamonds are way better than the sparkly kind!”  Yeah, right.  I didn’t buy it either.  The winning team won a beach date with Ben.

The Bachelor is still ridiculous…

I wasn’t going to write about “The Bachelor” because enough ink has been spilled on this topic over the last ten years but I have to break my silence.  After three “at the end of the day”s in 15 minutes during episode one, I had to bring out my reporter’s notebook and really break things down.  After Alex, Aaron, Andrew, Bob, Jesse, Byron, Charlie, Travis, Prince Lorenzo, Andrew, Brad, Matt, Jason, Jake, Brad (again), and Ben…only one marriage has resulted from this (and it was to the runner-up, not the original girl Jason gave the final rose to).  I’m not even counting “The Bachelorette” (which has one marriage).  So, here’s my breakdown (get it? breakdown? Like on show, where there’s at least five every rose ceremony?) of tonight’s episode – by the numbers.
