The Bachelorette, Week 3

Thanks to Carly for this. Typical that I forgot about it during the episode though, because that requires effort on my part and I have had 0% of motivation the last few days.

This show gets more and more stupid every single week,  yet I will never, ever stop watching it. It literally disgusts me, but I just can’t give it up. This was absolutely the worst episode to date. Ever. Just some things to keep in mind that will undoubtedly make you feel better about yourself if you ever need a confidence boost.

  • “I like seeing guys in their natural state.” Are we referring to men as animals now? That’s nice.
  • I absolutely cannot stand how whiny and cry baby-ish this group of guys is. How on earth would one think a woman is going to be attracted to you by acting like more of a girl than she is?
  • If you tell a girl you were arrested for domestic violence on your second date, I don’t think there’s a huge chance she’s ever going to want to marry you. Even if it’s only for 5 minutes or so. Just saying.
  • A “man” who breaks his finger and cries and asks his girl to hold his hand and acts like he is dying of an incurable disease when he is RUSHED TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM would be off my show before he could even get to the hospital. Bye.
  • Don’t tell somebody about your day if they didn’t ask or you don’t have something exciting to say.
  • Don’t let your new girlfriend get friendly with your old girlfriend. That is a recipe for an absolute disaster if I have ever heard one.
  • Who goes on a date dancing on the side of a building? I would cry and ask to go out for drinks instead.
  • Being with more than one person is SO frowned upon in our society,  yet this woman can date 20 men and hold all their hands and kiss all of them and we are all about it. I do not understand.
  • “Did you know that I tried to kiss you today?” That’s the worst pick-up line in the history of pick-up lines I think.
  • If for some reason in real life a woman ever gives a man a rose, the appropriate response is not to give her a daisy in return. I don’t know what the appropriate response is, but that isn’t it.
  • “It’s called The Bachelorette for a reason. It’s not called let’s make friends.” But maybe it just should be. How funny would that be if it was a show about all these guys trying to be friends with each other? So much awkwardness would be involved and I would be so happy about it.
  • You are not in love with someone on your second date when they are seeing 20 other people.
  • Does anyone else say it along with Chris every week when he goes, “Des. Gentlemen. The final rose. When you’re ready.” EVERY WEEK. We can all count. We can all see there is one left. Thanks for the clarification in case anybody was confused.

And then there is Mistresses. I can’t even talk about that show, because this is supposed to be a blog applicable to all ages and that show is certainly not. I am not complaining about that though. Go watch it for yourself.

Bachelorette thoughts. Ready set go.


  1. I’m glad we can be tweeting frands during The Bachelorette. 1 – It makes me feel like less of an alcoholic when I drink 4 glasses of wine by myself ;) and 2 – your perspectives make me LOL for 2 hours straight!

  2. Um, can we talk about the stupid dress-up dates? Wtf is that?! Oh, and Brandon. Poor guy needs some seriously intensive therapy to work through his childhood issues.

    Last night, I told my roommate that I want to be on The Bachelor, but instead of there being a guy, it’ll just be a huge group of girls doing fun activities and traveling to all of those cool places, and living in a huge mansion. She responded, “oh, so like The Bad Girls’ Club?” Hahahahaahahaha.

      Honestly, like what. These guys are just straight up embarrassing. I agree with your bachelor idea. Except I kind of really do want to be on the show and there are auditions here tomorrow and I am s tempted.

  3. I need to join in on the tweet party next week! I hate this show so much but I just need to watch it for some reason! These guys are all so weird and lame and oh my god please stop crying.

  4. sorry – don’t watch this show….BUT I do watch (and can’t wait until this summer seaseon starts) Pachlor Pad…it’s my summer guilty pleasure :)

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Yessss I love that!! I knew 2 of the girls on there last season and it was even more fun to watch when you are friends with people in real life.

  5. OMG you and I would have the best bachelorette parties ever. I COMPLETELY agree with everything you said! Still love to hate this show, but this season is baaaaaddd! Des is a bore and if I have to hear one more fairy tale reference I’m going to die

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Girl we need a FaceTime party at least! And Des’s opinion on romance is nauseating to me.

  6. I wish I would have found this sooner so that I could join in on the game! I loved reading your thoughts on the Bachelorette and totally agree with everything you said. It really is complete garbage. Oh, and you’re freakin’ hilarious.
