Will You Accept This Rose?

Tonight I watched "The Bachelorette." It was intense.

The premise of the show is that this girl goes on dates and flirts with a bunch of guys -- sometimes a bunch at once, sometimes one at a time. Then at the end of the show she has to tell one guy from her pool of prospects who are all in love with her and want to spend the rest of their lives with her to go home. How does she tell him? She gives all of the other guys a rose, but him! It's super sad because she really feels for this guy and they really connected, but he just wasn't the right guy. She wants the other guys more, but gosh darn it life just isn't fair and she is not allowed to have them all! The poor girl.

The next week the Bachelorette has to deny another dude a rose. There are tears of course.

Within the next week, she realizes that she doesn't love one of her keepers after all and denies him a rose. (Not again! This must be killing her!)

The next week, she falls out of love with another guy, the next week another, and so on. Fortunately she only falls out of love with one guy per week. Then by the last episode she has run out of men, but the last one ends up being the one for her anyway. Her soulmate!

I can't wait to see the wedding.


  1. Hi, friend! Sorry it's been a while. It's good I don't have a Tv, because I'd be glued to this stupid show. I find it incredibly addicting and do want to know who Ashley ends up picking.
    Hope you're well.

  2. Hi Robyn! Don't be sorry! You don't owe me anything. I'm well thanks. A lot of people are addicted to this show! Clearly the formula engages people somehow.
