I love being right, but hate it when I’m right about love not being authentic. As I’ve been posting on my blog, these Bachelor and Bachelor-type shows are entertaining programs for us reality TV buffs, but really should not be looked at as a means to find true love.
What do you know about these people in six weeks? They’re screened by TV producers and obviously not always very well. In the latest rendition of The Bachelorette, one of the woo-boys admitted after getting the boot that he was on only trying to boost his music career and that he was proud to have made it so for on the show with a girlfriend back at home.
Last week word got out that the “winner” of said program, Ed Swiderski, was not what he appeared to be. He left the show telling Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, that he needed to get back to work. Then, he returned and weasled his way into a proposal. Turns out, he had been dating two other women on the side, sending them raunchy texts messages during filming, and even sleeping with them both, during his “hiatus” from the program to “head back to work”.
Ed even told the women that he had to do work out of town, when he headed back to the program. Now, Jillian is engaged to a man she truly does not know. Scary thought.
Come on, folks. If you want to meet people and go on TV, go for it. But, when the lights go out and the cameras are packed away, go through a normal courting for goodness sake. Just, try it. Take my word on this. Trust me!
