The other week I rededicated my life to fitness for the gagillionth time. The upshot of this is that I am now exposed to a vast array of crappy summer programming that comes on around 8pm while I'm at the gym.
Last night I caught some sort of Bachelorette back-to-back episode thing. Despite the fact that it totally blew I was sucked in. It's been awhile since I had a good Rant...so here we go.
This woman Jillian is such a wet rag - so far I do not find her dynamic or interesting. Apparently she was some cast off from The Bachelor that everyone loved. She does seem like a real person - which is a plus - just not anyone I'd want to hang out with. Case and point, it is discovered one of the guys on the show still has a girlfriend, and there is some mystery over who it is. Instead of walking into that room, dropping some F-bombs, and grab, twist and pulling until she found the dirt bag she states that this is the "rudest, rudest thing I've ever known in my entire life." O RLY? C'mon Jillian, grow a pair, kick that loser to the curb and don't forget to kick him once in the face before you walk away. (And, who goes on national TV with a girlfriend?!)
The guys are not that much better - exactly the ratio of good guys to bad guys to boring guys we've come to expect from these shows. Profession-wise there is the usual smattering of brokers, restauranteurs and real estate developers - and then a bunch of dudes who have jobs that are TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY ABUSRD and a clear attempt to "diversify" the profession pool. A vintner? Do you REALLY know any 29 year old vintners? Let's be real. Pizza entrepreneur? Uhhh, what? Break dance instructor? I was not aware that break dancing was still legal. Baseball camp owner?! Holy hell, paging Tom Emanski...
At any rate, clearly I'm DVRing this show - I have to find out what happens to these asshats.
