Not For Those Who Have A Life

So I was going to do The Bachelor recaps. I did those about two years ago on Where Blogs Go To Die (Myspace) and they were fun, because it gave me an excuse to watch while taking notes. Like I wasn't go to do that ANYWAY.

Unfortunately, I hit a snag in my plans, finding out that The Bachelor was going to be Jake. That Jake. The one from last season who confronted Jillian after he was booted (not to be confused with being "bouted" which is probably something Canadians do) just to get some extra screen time. This guy really rubs me the wrong way. It's not just his Aryan Nation looks, or his bland personality. It's more like, anyone who calls themselves too perfect to find true love should be run over by a garbage truck.

Anyway, the point is, I can't do it guys. I can't subject myself to this guy week after week. Even if he does throw a lamp and say, "THAT'S IT, I'M OUT OF HERE" after the most dramatic season EVAH and even if he does find his co-pilot among the harem of desperate Barbie dolls and even if we do get to watch him fly a plane and reenact that one part from Look Who's Talking and even if there's a hot tub scene that cuts to an exploding volcano. EVEN THEN.

Oh who am I kidding? They had me at "Wings of Love."

I thought I wouldn't be able to stomach watching a whole bunch of women fight for the attention of a pilot, but sure enough, I watched.

I guess they don't realize he is going to sleep with all of them whether he marries one of them or not.

As pathetic as everyone involved is. I am sure I will be tuned in all season.

I actually liked him more than I thought I would after watching the premiere last night. I couldn't root for him with Jillian because it was painfully obvious that they weren't meant to be together.

He is a *bit* too perfect though...

I swore to myself that if Jake was the next bachelor I'd boycot, but alas, they had me wings of love too. Especially when they actually made the musak version the new theme song! Jake can NOT land his plane on my landing strip. HOLY COW wasn't that unexpected from the little asian girl! I was like, YES! I like her.

Jake just seems too scipted and rigid. It's like the producers were like, c'mon Jake, show your bad boy, so he drives up on his motorcycle. Jake, my dear, you're not fooling me.

I could go on... and on....... and on.......
