Beauty and The B*tches


THAT should be this seasons subtitle for The Bachelor!  This is the first season of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette that I’ve watched from the very beginning.  Although, the only reason I started watching this season is because of the clip they showed on The Soup.

Yea, I thought Joel McHale was spot on with his accent and the montage of him recalling his previous experience was a LITTLE over the top, but when I saw the vampire model….I HAD to see what that was about. 

"The Vampire Model"

So after watching the first 4 episodes of this season of ABC’s The Bachelor, I’ve come to a few conclusions…

ONE- I am SUCH a sucker for people finding and creating their own love story and that is why I, and so many other people, LOVE it.
TWO- I’m pretty sure part of the application process requires you to write your biggest fear.  For instance, in this weeks episode, Chantal goes on a one-on-one date with Brad.  On the date, he flies her to a romantic island and tells her she’s going to walk on the ocean floor.  Sounds like a blast to me!  But wait…Chantal admits to the camera, “I am terrified of ocean water.”  (Really? Water? I understand Sharks, but water?? That’s like saying you have a fear of saline.)  In this same episode, when black-eyed Michelle is given a chance to go on a one-on-one date she is flown to a roof of an extremely high building in the city.  Brad points down to the pool on the first floor and tells her, “That’s where we are eating dinner.”  Michelle, of course, is afraid of heights and almost refuses to repel off the building.  Brad eventually convinces her to do it and they conquer their fears together.  These are just two cases proving my point, so maybe next week we will see yet another woman face her biggest fear.  **Crossing my fingers for The Bachelor goes Fear Factor!!
THREE- My friend Jackie and I have this running joke that I am applying to be on this show one day.  It’s half a joke, but half  not.  I’d do it!  My thing is, I look at the girls who do NOT get chosen at the end, after already going on amazing dates with the bachelor, and I wonder…How is any other date going to compare after you have a private concert with Train? Or have a private jet come pick you up?  I have got to find men not from Tallahassee…[ To the men out there: I’m Jewish and love to travel to tropical places 😉 ]

Overall, I must give ABC’s The Bachelor a 6/10
It airs Monday nights on ABC at 8pm

“Rachel’s Birthday Video with Hugh Jackman and John Kay”


I was watching Oprah last week when she was in Australia and she brought up this couple, Rachel and Kristian Anderson.  Their story touched my heart.  He’s been battling cancer and had to quit his job and now she supports him and the family.   One reason why Oprah heard about them was because of Kristian’s YouTube video love letter to his wife.  It is one of the most beautiful, touching, heartfelt videos I have ever seen.   May 2011 bring the Anderson family many blessings as they continue to fight the battle over liver and bowel cancer.
