i don’t know how this happened but it appears that i am genuinely invested in the bachelor-industrial complex. i had real emotions upon finding out who the next bachelor will be (chris the farmer, yay!). these shows are legitimately awful and promote the most antiquated gender roles - the only way it could be worse is if all the women were expected to wear corsets. i’m pretty disappointed in myself but also excited about upcoming mindless tv time.
This is going to be like The Simple Life, only all the women are competing to be the next Bachelorette so they can get off that farm as quickly as humanly possible.
