This is the dumbest show ever.

While I realize I'm talking to a mostly female audience right now, I'm sure my opinion on this will be brushed to the wayside and ignored. But I have to get this off my chest.

For those who don't know, the upcoming season of 'The Bachelorette' will feature Becca Kufrin, who just so happens to be from Prior Lake, Minnesota. She recently had her heart ripped out of her chest by 'The Bachelor' Arie Luyendkk Jr. when he proposed, changed his mind, then dumped her to go back to the other girl (Lauren) and made the whole thing public on national television. Then to make it worse, he proposed to Lauren on the "After The Rose" show last night.

That Arie dude is lucky he made it off the set alive with all those pissed off women in the stands. My wife was even grumbling on the couch next to me, and she only found out what was happening on the show earlier that day after I texted her about it because the whole story was blowing up on my newsfeed!

So yeah, super fun, right? Worth "the journey", was it? Now it's time for Becca to return to frozen Minnesota and get back to being a publicist and living a semi-normal life until your 15 minutes are up... right? Well through all of that mess, the show's producers decided the easiest choice for next season's 'The Bachelorette' was Becca... and without even blinking an eye, she actually agreed!


"Bachelor Nation" on social media immediately applauded the move, saying things like:

  • "There's nobody better suited to be 'The Bachelorette'!"
  • "You got this girl! Now it's your turn"
  • "After all she went through, she deserves it!"

She "deserves" it? Please. So you're telling me after all that public humiliation you just went through, all that heartache you just experienced, you're suddenly ready to get back up on the horse and do it all over again. Only this time, you'll be the one left with the hard choice in the end while bruising egos and breaking several dudes hearts in the process?

Give me a break. Last night's "After The Rose" special was the first and last time I'll ever spend watching this garbage show. The only reason I tuned in was because of the Minnesota angle and because I thought there's no way they (meaning the show's producers) could script this show any better than letting her get "redemption" by naming her the next "Bachelorette"...

I guess I was right. It was so predictable. Enjoy next season!
