Before season 18 of ‘The Bachelor’ started I wrote an article predicting that this season would be disappointing. So far – I was wrong – but that’s only because of the public (and myself) not the show. In that article, I wrote that one of the reasons it would be disappointing is because the show is feeling less and less reality (like MTV’s ‘The Real World’) and more and more staged for the stuff we crave. Well, it only took two episodes for that to come to fruition. Last night we got a little bit of drunkeness, and what looked like a psychadelic Jersey Shore episode with a little bit of ‘The Bachelor’ sprinkled in.
The first date with Clare was all ‘bachelor’. It was a very cute day/evening filled with skating, sledding, and as Juan Pablo put it – chilling out. Before long, Juan P and Clare are in a hot tub exchanging back rubs, nice first date right? Clare gets the rose and decides after one date that JP could be the man of her dreams. Sweet.
