Alright lovelies, I’ll admit it: I watch “The Bachelor”. I started with Jason’s season and I hate it as much as I love it. But let’s just face it: this show brings out the worst in women.
Last night’s episode was “The Women Tell All”. For Bachelor virgins, this is when all the women from the show reunite to discuss the season. In other words, it’s a cat fight. We have women tearing each other apart, saying the most nasty things to each other. Twenty minutes in, one woman has made another sob, calling parenting techniques into question, and are in a full-out verbal war.
Then as the viewer, I’m just as guilty. Why do we tune in week after week? Why, after seasons of failed engagements, is this show still on the air? Because we like to call these ladies crazy, put them down from our living rooms, and be just as vindictive as those who are on the screen. There are several bloggers out there who do live posts where they join viewers from across the nation to analyze the contestants hair color, fashion sense, breast size, and every other flaw they may have.
Why, as females, do we feel like we need to rip one another apart?
