After watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette over the years, I have come to the conclusion that this is not about finding love, getting married, etc...

It's a game. That's all it is.

All these men and women are all competing againt each other to see who can get the "hot girl" or "hot guy." It's like being back in high school.

The Bachelor or Bachelorette is picking from a group of people. These people have to do whatever it takes to be attractive to the Bachelor or Bacherlorette.

Remember the show Survivor, which was the first reality show of this genre back in 2000? Well, the Bachelor/Bachelorette is the same thing.

In the end, someone has to win the contest. When that person wins, he or she feels like they won the contest. They don't think, "Oh, I am in love and I will marry you and spend the rest of my life with you." They are like, "Yes, I beat out 25 guys (or girls) and I won. Yippy, I won. "

It's all a game. A game about who is the most attractive person to that particular Bachelor or Bachelorette. It's not about love.

And we are all suckers for watching this show.

Nah, I think most of us here aren't naive and take it for what it is - entertainment...

It's entertainment for me. I don't believe any of these shows, they are all "produced" and staged for entertainment purposes and to make money for the moguls and networks.

They are expecting 500 women to audition next week.
This Hotel is about 20 minutes from me.

Well, I thought they gave the ending away with their headline but it turns out it was just a sneak-peak at tonight's show.
But I didn't know that earlier so I went to Reality Steve's website assuming I knew the outcome but turns out I didn't, after all, but I do now!!!

Sicy's going to love the dancing at Roberto's tonight

That was hot. Roberto is hot. Gawd.

Good choice on who went home. Omg 'do you want to come see my basement?'

I guess there is no drama with Frank? I dont think she will end up with him though. It's gonna be either Chris or Roberto.

Frank is such a fraud, Frank's parents had to be nervous, do they have room for one more in that condo?
