In an effort to spend time with my sickly wife, I sat to watch the final 20 minutes of an episode of The Bachelorette. I am going against everything I believe in writing a post about a TV reality show, but I have something to say to the throngs of women screaming obscenities at their televisions.
You know who you are.
Have you considered that it is not Wes that is the idiot here?
Wes is a idiot, sure. We all know it. He knows it, and he knows that it will sell a few records, before everyone loses interest again...in say, 5 minutes. It's his schtick, and he's having fun in the spotlight. Douche.
But have you considered that maybe Jillian is the true moron?
This is barely more than the age-old story of the girl more interested in the bad boy than the guy who treats her well, and who is boring by comparison. To go on a reality show looking for Mr. Right and so obviously try to push this genius into that role is laughable. I mean, round peg in a square hole much?
My hope for Jillian is that she has been completely aware how much she has been drooling after the douchebag, and that she has been doing it for ratings. But frankly, I don't think she's that good of an actress.
I had a friend once who was fantastic with the ladies...especially at relationships that lasted 4-5 hours. And he told me that my problem (or one of them) was that I talked to women with respect. "As soon as you start insulting them and treating them like crap in the bar they'll be all over you", he would say.
Ladies, when are you going to stop giving Mr. Wrong more chances than you give Mr. Right?
I mean, men are obsessed with boobs, but we don't go out of our way to marry strippers, do we?
