It happened to me on accident. My wife got hooked on “The Bachelorette” at one of the very viewing parties discussed above. She brought that vile addiction into our home. It began with me mercilessly ripping on the show while my wife watched. But by week four, I had a genuine interest in whether Jillian would fall in love with Ed’s green shorts.
Don’t ask me how it happened, but I find myself spending two hours of my weeks contemplating who will make it out of hometowns and how much a person gets paid to light all of those stupid candles. I know there are other men out there like me, and thanks to NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams’s appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” I DEFINITELY know I’m not alone.
Now if somebody will please cancel this show and put me out of my misery, that would be great. (OK I don’t really mean that please don’t cancel it)
