Everyone wonders why the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise has had ten bajillion seasons and only two marriages. I think the answer is pretty simple. You need to have a season at the Olive Garden. I’m serious. Take away the once-in-a-lifetime adventures, luxurious fantasy suites, hair and makeup teams, and outrageous clothing budgets and have the season take place in a mall. They can bond over neverending soup or salad and breadsticks. If it’s time for a guy to go, he’ll go to the soup bar and find the ladle is dry (literally and figuratively)– no soup for you!

It was a freakin’ love-fest on this week’s episode of “The Bachelorette.” Emily loved all the families. The families loved Emily. Three of the four guys told Emily they loved her (Sean held out, but he sure does love kissing her!) She loved Chicago. She loved Jef’s ranch (yes, his family has a ranch). And on. And on. And on. For another two hours. Oy.
Honestly, between last week’s snoozefest and this week, I propose bringing back the Bachelorette Drinking Game. Next week, pour your beverage of choice, sit back, and take a drink as follows:
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.
Welcome to the all-new, “dramatically different” season of the Bachelorette! Um, not really, but nice try, ABC. True, the show is filming in Emily’s hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, but this isn’t the first time a single parent held the title role (Jason Mesnick, anyone?) This may be the first time that the child wasn’t shipped somewhere while mommy/daddy went lookin’ for love in a McMansion, but it’s not the first time ever.
