My guilty pleasure - Reality TV

Ok, I have to admit that some reality tv is just too good to miss. I watched the "Bachelor" last night and it was like watching a train wreck... I couldn't look away.
I'm not sure where they pick the girls to be on this show. Maybe they're in bars or on the side of the road waiting to be taken to Hollywood and "discovered".
I know I discovered how embarrased I could get just watching them make fools of themselves and I wasn't even there in person. This poor guy doesn't even know how ridiculous the whole situation was because he was being pulled in 25 different directions and could not possibly have been able to focus on any of them long enough to notice that the majority were certifiable. I did pick 2 out of the 25 loons that were possibly there for the right reason (if that's even plausible).
I still can't help but watch these shinanigans and laugh - but I think it's mostly a nervous laugh because the whole time I feel this knot in the pit of my stomach because of the absurdity of their actions. It amazes me that what seems like a normal looking girl that seems to have it all together with a job and a family could end up on this show, cursing out some other chick because of a GUY. 1st of all - did the producers tell each girl individually that she was going to be the only one on the show? Haven't they seen this program before or have they been raised in a jungle or popped out of a tramp-in-the-box? (too harsh? you didn't see the show) It would seem their families would take them aside and say "Please don't make a complete fool out of yourself, for the sake of our family." But then again, maybe they do and when the cameras go on they just lose their minds. I also hope for the sake of women everywhere that it's editing. Whatever the case may be, it's fascinating! What does that say about me? Hmmmm? Oh well, next Monday you know where I'll be!

I've never watched it before so I wouldn't know the first thing about it. Sounds a bit interesting though! Maybe I'll tune in next week to take a peek.

Have a great evening!

I am way too old to understand Reality TV! Give me good old fashioned blood and guts drama!
