The Bachelorette – Observations 1

I do have one guilty Reality TV pleasure.  The Bachelorette this season.  Not sure why, but once you get into one of these series, it’s hard to miss.  Not many, other than a few, of these relationships ever last, as shown in the insanity of the meeting between Jake and Vienna last night.  So I should learn and get sucked in, but there’s not much on TV right now and it’s true summer brain candy.

I must say that I do love the way that the producers of this show play with us.  They edit the footage so that we believe one thing and then the complete opposite happens in the end.  It will be great to see what the outcome is of this one.  Not that I believe in any way that whatever couple comes out of this, that they will last.  But it is fun to believe in the fairy tale for 2 hours each Monday night.

As I’ve been watching this series with Ali and the boys, I must say that the remaining guys are, in general, pretty good guys.  They are not too petty or jealous.  Except of course for Frank.  What’s with this guy?  I wish that for Ali’s sake there was some kind of footage that she could see of these guys in their hotel suites or the house.  She would so easily be able to see that this guy is the most insecure one of the lot.  He’s always so worried about not getting one on one time with Ali and what the other guys are doing with her.  His facially expressions and comments when the date cards aren’t for him are always priceless.  He acts like a child, even though he’s one of the older ones left.

Geez, buddy, you applied to be on this show.  What did you think would happen?  And when, if ever, that these two might end up together (not likely looking at scenes from coming weeks), he would smother her in days or weeks:  wondering where she is, who she’s with and what they are doing.  He’s too much.

But, again this could be masterful producing and editing to make us believe one thing.  With him I don’t think so.  She should be scared of her feelings for him. That’s just something that I’ve been observing for weeks.

It would be great if the Bachelors or Bachelorettes of these series could really get the inside scoop on those that are pursuing them. But last night had to be about the Jake and Vienna debacle.  Now, I didn’t watch the Jake series.  Didn’t like him with Jillian, so couldn’t watch a whole series.  Did get to see their dirty laundry continue to be aired last night.  If you haven’t seen it and want to feel uncomfortable, here it is.

Not much I can say other than both of them seem like they are in the wrong.  Vienna get a backbone, move on with your life and make sure that you are not depending on a guy that you met on a TV show.  And why get a job in LA, when you hate it there?  Or do you?  There are a few more cities/states in the US that you could possibly find marketing work in.  And Jake, wow, you need to get off your high horse.  It truly does look like you are doing this for exposure.  I’m happy for both Jillian and Ali, for not having to end up with Jake.

Let’s see what will be in store for our Bachelorette next week at the home town dates.  Can’t wait to see.
