Please don't think less of me...

Okay, so I'm addicted.



Can anyone else out there sympathize with me? The countdown began when we started seeing previews for the new season of "The Bachelor" back in December. I won't tell you that my husband got so emotionally involved with last season that he swore off any future episodes. I also won't tell you that last night when I told him it was starting, he looked at me and said that all he wanted to do was spend time with me and if that meant watching the show, than that was okay (yeah right!). Another thing I won't tell you that this past summer when my niece was visiting, there was a 2 day marathon of past seasons on and that we didn't even make it out of our pajamas.

I got a call during one of the commercial breaks from my sister and niece to talk about the lovely ladies ABC have decided are a perfect match for him. I didn't realize salsa dancing and Bubba teeth were the way to impress a man; evidently it is because they both were offered a rose at the end of the night.

I sure hope he finds true love this time...after all, it is reality TV and everything that happens is for real and lasts forever :)

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Haha! I remember my husband watching that with friends in college when it first came out! I peeked in a few times, but I don't think I ever got that into it...now Kitchen Nightmares on the other hand...

:)

Love your new blog look, by the way!

I don't know why...but I am not liking this bachelor thing...it's too much and those girls are so giddy and full of "highschool" like actions.

Don't get me wrong I am a reality tv junkie but this bachelor has not captured me yet!

We flipped back and forth between that and another show all night, but JIm drew the line when I scrolled past Mommas' Boys at 9. ;)

urgghhhh... the cat is out of the bag!!!

Honestly, I don't know that I am going to be able to stay tuned in through this season. Those women are TOO much! Can you even believe Salsa Shannon got a rose? Does he really think she has potential or did he just feel bad for her? And what about stalker girl... the one who knew everything about him because of reading his MySpace. Wow.

I found your blog through Sarah Mae's. And, YES I am addicted too!!! And, I have to say that I am not very happy with DeAnna's return!!!!!!! She had her chance!!! From the looks of the previews, she seems to stay for awhile too!!!! Should be very interesting!!!!!

I was in the closet! But, OK, because of your courage AND for calling out your sister, I will come out! I'm addicted too! There have been seasons I have skipped because the bachelor was ehh...but I think Jason is great and deserves to find happiness. I hate that DeAnna is returning, how unfair! But it's all about ratings, right? And since my husband refuses to watch on principle alone, we will have to chat about the episodes. Deal?

I'm addicted too! I cannot believe Deeana comes back!!

Shannon said...

PS My husband has been addicted to all the seasons! :)

Twice as Nice said...

We love the show too!! I think the girls are much prettier then in the past. I could NOT believe Deana is coming back!!! I don't know what that is all about. I hope he finds a NICE girl. The girls tend to be so catty. I also LOVE the biggest loser and it starts again tonight.
So happy to see your well and all is good. We are SO HAPPY for you :o)

Lana said...

I am addicted already, too! I missed the season he was previously on but I can't wait to watch this season!!!

Think less of you.... you know Ryan and Tristan are married with two children. Just so you know. No judgement here. :)

Sarah, this season is a freaking train wreck. I like Jillian the hot dog girl and Megan the girl everyone voted for to leave. But some of those girls are pitiful. My goodness. one L

Amber said...

Oh, I watch too! I've watched every season saw I saw my first one...the second season.

It looks from the previews to be a very interesting season! I was actually pretty surprised at the girls he kept, and the ones he let go. I really liked Stacia and was hoping he would keep her. Knowing what he has shared about wanting to find a wife who can also be a mom for Ty, I was very curious about what qualities grabbed his attention in some of the girls he kept around! I guess we'll see!
