For another Bachelor. Unfortunately, I can’t say I’m too pumped. I don’t know if it is because of the track record the show has had (relationships that have worked = 1, maybe 2?)… or if it is because there are SOOO many love reality shows out there… or if it just comes down to the fact that I am creeped out by Jason and his way too expressive eyes, but I’m just not excited for this season. Usually I have to watch the first episode and try to pick out the girls that will make it to the end… but this season, I didn’t even DVR the first episode! Tonight is the second episode, and I am not sure if I want to tune in. There are a couple reasons why I am tempted, however:
- Deanna returns! I am still slightly miffed at her for her relatively boring season, but I am curious to see what she has up her sleave… and if Jason brings her back as a potential love match.
- semi-Seattle boy makes good! You always (or at least I do) feel obligated to watch a show when you know someone from your neck of the woods is on the show… like when Meredith was the bachelorette (she was from Portland).
- Kiss 106.1 DJs. Huh? Oh yes my friends… I am a faithful Jackie and Bender radio listener during my morning commutes. Last week, they interviewed Chris Harrison (the host from the Bachelor/Bachelorette series) and mentioned how during the hometown visit, Jason and a couple of his girls (or one, who knows?) actually make it down to the radio station and are interviewed by the DJs. This actually sparks my interest, because Bender always makes a point to talk about how anyone looking for love on the reality shows are just looking for 15 minutes of fame.
Yep, so I’m still trying to figure out if I will make it through another season or pass. The reasons I listed are good, but are they worth the time I have apparently wasted on all the previously failed seasons? It’s true – only time will tell…
