    I watch it for the same reason I watch SYTTD and a few other shows – it’s mindless and a way to unwind. The drama is pretty fun too. I hate drama in my own life, but I can watch it on TV all day long.

    I agree. I watch the Bachelor when I am in the mood for some mindless TV. I usually surf on my iPad throughout the show.

    I love laughing at the cliches. Like “I am falling in love with this man!”….after only maybe two dates. 

    Or “She’s not here for the right reasons like I am!”

    Or on their first date, she says “He is everything I’ve been looking for in a man.”

    I’m like…how do you know that?! You’ve only just met him!!!

    Plus the drama among the women can be pretty entertaining to watch.

    I’m in between hate watching and guilty pleasure. I have only ever seen 1 full season years ago, but one of my best friends watches it and I’m unemployed so why not? I think it’s totally  ridiculous and mostly fake. Most of the girls don’t even have real jobs (dog lover? free spirit? really?) and it’s unreasonable for 20 out of 20 girls to all be into the same dude. However, the bachelor is gorgeous, the house is beautiful, the women say funny things, and I like the aspect of guessing who will be kicked off and then seeing the results. It’s by no means my favorite TV show, but it’s fairly entertaining.

    @mepayne:  I agree. I like mindless entertainment.

    I can’t really “get into it” until it’s down to a managable amount of daters though. There are just too many people!
