I’ve been watching The Bachelor franchise since day one. I’ve been there through the times where it genuinely seemed that people were there to try to fall in love and I’ve been there as it’s gotten progressively more and more soapy and blatantly manipulative. BUT YET I STILL WATCH? Why? I have no idea, really. On the other end of the spectrum, we have our fashion blogger, Maggie. Her first season of The Bachelor was Ben’s season, making THIS her first ever season of The Bachelorette. While Maggie is still suspicious of things because it is a reality show, she does bring a slightly less jaded perspective to the proceedings. So when she tweeted me asking if I was watching this season, I immediately decided that we should document our feelings.
So what happens when a Newbie and a Seasoned Veteran team up to watch the latest season of The Bachelorette? Read on to find out!
Maggie: Okay, so, I hated Jojo because she wore that stupid unicorn mask when she got out of the limo and, you know, her name is Jojo, but by the end I really liked her so I was sad for her but also she’s so much better off without Ben, you guys.
Kim: Listen. Ben was boring AF and he and Lauren are ALREADY fighting break-up rumors, so really, who is the winner here?
Maggie: SEX CRIMINAL HAIR OMG.
Kim: There’s always a few guys every season that I am like WHY are you doing this, you are too good for this show. Usually they seem to be pretty confused as to what the hell they are doing on The Bachelorette too.
