Why oh why...

Y'all...why oh why do I feel compelled to watch the new Bachelor tonight??? Someone talk me back from the ledge. Every season I say I'm done...but every season I come back. What can I say? I'm a glutton for punishment. This one is especially goofy to me because Jake spurs my gag reflex constantly and I swore I wouldn't be able to stomach him, but look at me setting my DVR for the next 12 weeks.

I'm not sure what it is about seeing girls cry over "the one that got away" that keeps me coming back for more. Maybe it's the hopeless romantic in me that feels like maybe this time it will be true love. Maybe this will be the second out of 15 tries that this thing happens to work.

I guess only time will tell! But I can assure you I will be sitting in front of my TV listening to Jake spew word vomit full of cheesiness and flash his goofy smile and I'll search for clues when Chris Harrison promises the "Most dramatic season in Bachelor history!!" We'll just see about that! Will you be watching??

I will be watching...I will say that I will be DVR'ering it, and then watching it later tonight or tomorrow.... My boyfriend is not a big fan...ha!

Natasha said...

have no fear- all my girlfriends are coming over tonight to indulge in this guilty pleasure, too!

Christa said...

Lol your right...every episode they do promise us "the most dramatic season in bachelor history". Also have you noticed that ever other word that comes out of The Bachelor's mouth is "amazing". Ha! My mom and I always laugh about that every episode!

I can't help myself...

I swore I would never watch again after the Jason Mesnick debacle, but I've secretly been looking forward to it starting again.

I am going to skip it. It sure is tempting though! I just don't need another show added to my DVR list!

I don't really watch anymore. This new guy works out at my uncle's gym and is his "friend" (though I have discovered over the years that he is pretty loose with that term). Anyway, he claims that he is a super nice guy. I have no idea. I've never seen him on tv or person!

i'm with you...except i think i'm going to resist this season. i really did not like jake...way too cheesy for me. so you are not allowed to blog funny things about the show and make me want to watch it.

Rachel said...

I'll probably be watching, but only because there's nothing else on that I care to watch!

Annie said...

Oh I am SOOOO with you on this one. I seriously could NOT STAND Jake when he was on last season for Jillian..BUT I will totally be tuning in tonight. What is wrong with us?!?!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I've had a great time reading through yours. :-) You are so right about the Bachelor. I actually set the DVR to record the series. I need serious help!

I'm a sucker for the Bachelor, too. I was glued to the TV last night, like I'm sure I will be for the next few Mondays! :)
