Why Do I Watch This Crap?

Did anyone else waste their time watching The Bachelor this season?

I've neglected to mention my addiction because I'm totally embarrassed that I watch such mindnumbingly awful crap I really doubt anyone cares about my opinion on this show, but after last night I can't be silenced!

Generally, I am not a devout Bachelor fan. I've seen a few seasons, but no where near all of them. The only reason I watched this season is because I picked up in the middle of The Bachelorette last season, and I really liked Jason Mesnick.

Boy, did he have me fooled. Now, I plan to hate him for all eternity.

I can handle the fact that he proposed to Melissa (my fave since the very first episode), and after some time realized that they weren't right for each other (even though I think 6 weeks isn't giving the relationship a fair shot). No one really expects these Bachelor relationships to last anyway. After all of these seasons, Trista and Ryan are the only couple married.

What I can't handle is the way he went about the situation. He brought her on TV and broke off their engagement without her ever knowing that something was wrong. Asshat!

Then, he immediately turns around and tells Molly that he is still in love with her and wants another shot!! Double Asshat!!!

He could have discretely broken up with Melissa after a couple of months, and then picked things up with Molly. It would have been way less scandalous after all of the excitement over the show wears off. I'm starting to think he likes the drama and feeling of being wanted by so many women more than he lets on.

And what the hell is Molly thinking? She thinks it's acceptable for Jason to break up with Melissa ON TV after only 6 weeks, and then ask her out not 20 minutes later? And she accepted! And then they spent the rest of the show making out and cuddling!

What makes me the most mad is that Jason took the warm, fuzzy, and hopeful feeling of the proposal away from me. Now I'm just left being cynical and realizing that even someone who seems like the nicest guy ever is actually just a dick.

In my rage over his douchey behaviour, I even joined the Facebook group Jason Mesnick is a Jerk.

Yep. I am not overly emotionally involved in this at all.

To be honest, I'm not a fan of The Bachelor at all, but the backlash from these 18 finales makes me wish I had watched it. That being said, at least you are invested in characters that are "real" - remind me to share with you my obsession of NCIS some day (a/k/a NOT real characters).

I never thought any Bachelor could be hated MORE than Brad (the one that rejected ALL the girls, no interest in even seeing ANY of them again).

But Jason did it!

And, Molly is an idiot. I hope they broadcast it when she gets rejected AGAIN. I'd totally watch.

I don't watch the show, but I do get updates on it via The Soup, and I have to say, they all disgust me. I mean, if you're OK with basically having sex on national TV in a hot tub with some guy that you know is also dating about ten other girls, AND you know that your friends, family and co-workers all will see you, you reap what you sow.
