Boiled down to its essence, 'The Bachelorette' is a program about beautiful, lumbering nitwits vying for the attention of a beautiful, vapid woman. Oftentimes that means trying to impress her by sheer swag, but one past contestant is saying that many go to extremes and turn to steroids to get an edge.
The newest 'Bachelor' couple -- Sean Lowe and his chosen one, Catherine Giudici -- have been dealing with tabloid rumors that they're on the outs. But those whispers shouldn't be surprising considering the success rate for 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' is only about 16 percent.
Which is a whole lot better than the 0 percent success rate on Flavor Flav's dating show 'Flavor of Love.' So there's that.
The greatest love story since Anne Hathaway began her torrid romance with orchestrated surprise is complete now that Sean has chosen the woman of his pre-arranged dreams on the season finale of 'The Bachelor.'
So, who did he choose -- Catherine or Lindsay?
On Monday's episode of 'The Bachelor,' Sean took the three women still in the running for the Neil Lane ring he's getting free of charge on overnight dates to Thailand. Because flying halfway across the world is the most normal thing to do when paring down your list of potential wives in the 21st century when most of us struggle just to afford to fill our cars with gas.
On Monday night's episode, the four remaining women on 'The Bachelor' tried to prove that home is where the heart is. Or least where girls who are so desperately in need of validation they're willing to demean themselves by letting a man they don't know propose in a game show setting are.
