Oh dear: Bachelor Pad

I don't read a lot of blogs, but when I do, I read www.ihategreenbeans.com   One of my friends told me about it, and because it's largely a blog blogging about the ABC show The Bachelor, I also started watching The Bachelor.  It's a show that is so good it's bad.  One Bachelor, twenty insane women, all fighting for "the chance for love."  Occasionally, ABC switches it around and does The Bachelorette instead, which frankly isn't as good.  Men aren't as petty and ridiculous as women, and so they don't walk around talking bad about each other for the most part.  When they do, they take it outside and fight and it's over, and so there's all the drama for the entire season in about five minutes.

For a several years now, MTV has brought back previous members of The Real World for challenge shows.  VH1 did something similar with a show called I Love Money.  And ABC just now realized "Hey!  We can bring back old Bachelor(ette) contestants and do another show!"  And that show is The Bachelor Pad.  Which is terrible.  And I can't stop watching it.

Last night, due to a situation with the Tivo and a marathon of Pawn Stars (husband's show, not mine), I only caught the last 30 minutes of this ridiculously timed 2 hour show.  I apparently missed nothing, and was able to figure out what was going on in just the last 30 minutes, it's just that bad.  But I can't miss it, and so I upped the priority on my season pass so I don't miss it again.
