I got a comment from "Anonymous" about my Bachelor recap in which I was called "an idiot" for not knowing the show was rigged. The commenter said I have no right to judge an edited version of reality television. Well, Anonymous, I realize you don't agree with my "stupid opinion", but if someone signs up for the Bachelor, it is no secret they will be edited to look like a dork - whether this is because only fame-seeking dorks sign up for reality television or it's the editing, remains to be seen. Chicken or the egg...? No one goes on The Bachelor to find love - see, Anonymous, I do realize "how fake reality tv is". When someone goes on 'reality' television, whether they are coerced by the producers to walk in dancing to a boom box in a bright green shirt or not, they open themselves up to public opinion. If I put up videos of myself singing "Unbreak My Heart" into a webcam on YouTube, you can bet I would expect some giggles. But, then again, I "have no life and blog about my stupid opinion", so I am not that creative. I appreciate your opinion, Anonymous, but I will continue to make fun of The Bachelor, not because I have no life or I am a total jerk, but because these guys are hilarious without even trying - or the editing deserves an Emmy. And if I hurt their feelings in the process, well I apologize, but I am only rehashing things they actually did on.national.television.
Next week's recap will be a day delayed while I travel back from my mountain paradise.
