'The Bachelor: The Stories Behind the Rose' Digs Up Memories for Past Contestants

With one more week to kill before the premiere of the new season of Dancing with the Stars, ABC decided to treat Bachelor fans with a two-hour 20/20 special that promised to focus on the inner ropes of the network's most popular reality dating franchise.

Sadly, Inside The Bachelor: The Stories Behind the Rose hardly qualified as "news," because it didn't reveal anything new. If anything, it only made this viewer realize just how fabricated everything is on The Bachelor.

I think Jessie Csincsak, from The Bachelorette season 4, was spot-on when he described the episode as "kind of dragging" in his Twitter page. But it was still refreshing to see The Bachelor from a different format and perspective. There was lots of audition footage, controversial highlights, unforgettable proposals, and several interviews that gave fans updates on past Bachelor and Bachelorette participants. It even served as a trip down memory lane for the series' more popular stars like Trista and Ryan Sutter, Melissa Rycroft, who served as one of the correspondents, and Jillian Harris, who, in spite of not being featured in the episode, managed to tweet about her reaction.
