Having never watched more than five minutes total of all the Bachelor and Bachelorette shows I don't really care about the fate of the contestants or the shows. For some reason I thought no one was watching it, but I guess enough people are doing so that Disney can keep rolling out the show that costs about $10 to make and fills up an hour each week of their primetime hours. I remember when the shows first started how all the Bachelors and Bachelorettes became household names. Now, they are not even probably known outside their own household. I would imagine some of their relatives have no idea they are on a tv show because no one watches it. Think Trista and Ryan would be famous if they were on the show today? Hell no. And they sure wouldn't have made any money selling photos to anyone or getting their wedding paid.
So, now there is a rush of promotion for the new season which as usual stars the guy who got dumped last year. I guess they do that so there is a built in audience for the guy and everyone feels sorry for him. I think it is just because Disney is lazy and wants to save the money involved in going out to look for someone.
So, the new guy is Jason Mesnick. Apparently he was crushed when DeAnna Pappas dumped him and he vowed he needed time to heal before dating again. Well apparently the healing process took as long as it took for Disney to send over a new contract. Now, Jason swears he's in love and the show confirms he got engaged. Great. I'm sure he did, and by the time the show finishes so will the relationship. That's how it always goes. So, seriously with the exception of some people in New York who read the site, and the Disney lawyer who sends over the contracts to these contestants, does anyone really watch the show?
