Will Someone Please Explain Why They Watch THE BACHELOR?

I poked around on my other blog when I found an article about The Bachelor season finale on Beauty Beyond Bones’ blog on Google.

In her article, she wrote about this sick bastard of a douche who broke one girl’s heart and went for another contestant.  And while everyone chose to complain about the immorality of the episode, I offered a different perspective:

“This is why I watch car chases on the news and NOT trash like this. You can’t ban it because of the First Amendment. However, this “reality” crap (some of it is quite scripted) just makes me sick.

“I have a TV that’s three-years-old, but I hardly ever turn it on, because I simply can’t take the lowest common denominator of stupidity anymore-which the late Frank Zappa delved into, stating that stupidity is the most plentiful element in the Universe-more plentiful than hydrogen.

“I don’t blame Hollywood for ANY of this because Hollywood is the mirror. People who don’t like what they see on the idiot box should either ENCOURAGE (as opposed to LEGISLATE) others to live a spiritually healthy lifestyle or just do what Mick Jagger and Keith Richards did: throw the TV out of a hotel window.

“Hollywood runs a business. It’s up to parents to teach their children the difference between right and wrong-and the parents aren’t doing it.”

You have to read this article, because you don’t know which you’re going to do first: shed tears or just vomit.

As for myself, I’m so numbed by this that I just get slightly dizzy, because I have accepted the fact that the American viewing public likes to watch someone jump off of a roof and onto a white picket fence-just to make sure they do it right.

Not me.
