I watched bits and pieces of the show, The Bachelor last night. I have to say, the show really rubs me the wrong way. I know it’s a popular show but the attraction to it, I just can’t wrap my mind around. The “love” story ambiance they try to inject into the show must be the draw for women. I don’t find the men to be all that attractive but I think it’s because I just don’t find what they are doing to be very honorable, so that right there is a big turn-off.
Now this new bachelor, Jason just really blew me away. He picked a beautiful girl after, a month of “dating” and asked her to marry him, then told her how he loved her. Then I tuned into about 5 minutes of the after show, to hear him say that the chemistry between him and this girl had changed and he had spent the past several weeks thinking about the other girl he had sent packing. This is when I turned the tv off and went to bed. I was just so disgusted with this show and the exploitation of everyone involved. Does it surprise me? No. It just disgusts me. I know there are far worse shows on but I choose to not even tune into those channels.
I have to say, what woman in her right mind is okay with the guy they are falling for and sort of dating, kissing and touching all over some other girl? When is that really EVER okay? I guess for your 15 minutes of fame on a hit tv show? Shame on the ladies who give up months of their lives for this show and shame on Americans for watching it. My hope is that it’s all for show and that none of these girls leave the show as truly heartbroken as they come across.
This is not a show I’d want my daughter to watch or be involved with. I want her to wait for her true prince charming. The one God has already chosen for her. I want her to save herself and all of herself for him. I hope that he will do the same for her. Now that is true romance. Don’t play these games with dating and giving your heart away too soon. Save it for that special someone that the Lord has specifically picked for you. I’m saddened to see young women and men, throwing themselves into a show like this, in hopes that they will find their true love. I’m sure it’s possible but this isn’t a very honest way to go about it.
