If you put me in that environment, I would fall in love with a monkey.
Now, the show really does have entertainment potential. My girls and I have already spent countless hours
However, I, for one, would like to see the realism in this reality TV show kicked up a notch.
Here are some of my suggestions for future Bachelor dates:
(Take note, ABC, you may just get some fresh potential for these monotonous shows of yours.)
1. Put the Bachelor and all the women in the same house, together, 24 hours a day. Do not provide cooks, maids, or laundry service, and the girls' true colors will shine in no time. For a fun twist, make them all share one bathroom. Make a chore chart to see who's a slob and who's obsessive compulsive.
2. Deprive the girls of several days' worth of sleep before their dates. Then we'll see how sweet and perfect they seem when cavorting on their dream dates.
3. Provide the Bachelor with some hidden-camera clips of his potential wives driving in heavy traffic during rush hour. How perfect are they now?
4. For that matter, show him some of the clips of the girls interacting in the house when he's not there.
Cat fight anyone?
5. One of the dates should include 3 small, exceptionally whiny children and a visit to WalMart on a Saturday afternoon. Give them a 100-item shopping list, a time limit, and no snacks or extra diapers.
6. Put the Bachelor and the girls in a motor home for a cross-country trip. Limit the number of stops, all they have to eat and drink are hot coffee and bran muffins. Do not stock any deodorant, toothpaste, or hairspray.
7. Here is my final idea - and the most genius, I might add. This will ensure that Sean will not have to make any decisions whatsoever; he can just sit back and enjoy the process while waiting for his bride to emerge alive.
May I present to you:
The Bachelor Games
26 Tributes, fighting to the death until a lone victor remains.
At least the Bachelor wouldn't have to go through the agonizing process of choosing just one.
