Yeah, I know. This guy was a little too Ken-Doll, apple pie and just all-around nauseatingly waytogoodtobetrue when I first saw him, but he's growing on me.

I wish he'd get rid of the other Stephanie. I was glad he saw through the mememememememME speech she gave and was worried she might not be there for the right reasons. Nice too see he may actually be a smart and intuitive guy. Also, that he's looking for some emotion on their part and not just how many women's throats he can get his tongue down.

I think he's weeding them out nicely. He definitely will NOT get along with a princess. I have liked the southern brunette (CRAP I forgot her name) from the beginning. The one who he kept on the two-on-one. They ruined the suspense JUST A BIT by showing the coming attractions of her at the house just before the rose ceremony. HELLOOOOOOOOO.

I watch this too GE! Cheez or not..I love to watch the drama. I like Amber the teacher who was athletic..they sat on the beach episode before last. That bleached blond Tara?? seemed like she was out to lunch. I definitely want that bitch Stephanie (it'a all about me chick) to go! I think he is on to her!

He is soooooooo Ken! HA!

I have never watched one episode of The Bachelor. It seems sorta sleazy, icky to me when I see previews. All that making out in hot tubs with all those different women and they never stay together anyway.

I'm also put off by the making out in the hot-tub thing, but put any hot-blooded male in his prime in a jacuzzi with a bunch of hot women, and he'd have to be insane not to take advantage of the situation. I suppose if he really truly is looking for his wife, then he can look at this like a really long bachelor party.

At least it seems this guy manned-up and has actually asked the winner to marry him and says he's in love. So, we'll see.

There have been successful ones. The fisherman guy got married. So did Trista. I think Jerry O'Connell's brother is still with his winner, and I was SURE he was on there just for the publicity since he's an actor too.

Looking forward to the proposal. Every year I say I'm not gonna watch and they pull me back in.

I haven't watched it yet. Haven't been home.

Elizabeth (who I usually HATE) on The View was saying this morning how she keeps watching The Bachelor even though she knows it's so wrong.

She says her husband is making fun of her because she's all about "girl power" and here she is watching women tear each other's eyes out for a guy and then cry buckets because they "just weren't pretty enough".

Oh, does anyone remember that blonde idiot on Jerry O'Connell's season where she was crying that she was let go because she was "too beautiful" and it was "like, racist"?

I watch this show for shear entertainment.......... I can't imagine even wanting to go on this show........wow! the 'cat fights' and back stabbing are funny, but they set themselves up for it!

Andrew said it himself, he is a 'nerd'. I couldn't agree more.

I tried this one... I find it very unsettling. It's one thing to reject somebody because you don't like their singing, or because they are a liability in the challenges, or because they are not in your alliance. But for this one... it means that he's breaking up with somebody publicly on television EVERY DAY. SHE'S getting dumped... and who says he's such a freaking prize, anyway? Do they ever have a situation where the guy gets smitten and the girl decides he's a putz?

Hey! What would happen if Constantine were The Bachelor?

God forbid!! affraid I don't even watch the show and the thought of Con in hot tubs with lots of women gives me the heebie jeebies pale

I hate the whole idea of this show. That is why I don't watch. There was a couple of shows - like The Bachelorette, where there was a woman dumping men. The one bachelorette did get married a few years ago and they are still together. So that's nice.

HA! Couldn't have put it better myself.

These women go into this knowing what "The Bachelor" is all about. They've seen the umpteen other seasons and know what they're in for. I feel no sympathy in that direction.

Once again, it's the cliche of the women who connive and manipulate and stab their fellow women in the back that makes me sad. When they say "I didn't come here to make friends" and then blame all the women shunning them on "well, I'm just so beautiful. This always happens to me because women are jealous of me". I want to throw a rock through the TV.

I think that is what I hate the most about the show. How it portrays all these stereotypes about women.

Well, Tessa did get picked!!! I knew in my heart she was right for Andrew. It is such an odd show and I've never understood how anyone could put themselves through all that, but........I like watching it! Maybe it's the 'cat fights'!!!!! Laughing

Tessa was indeed very cute and sincere.

Well, I can't believe it! He actually chose the right woman! Unbelievable! I chose Tessa early on. Whenever I do that, they discard my favorite in favor of some chick who alienates all the women (like the chick who got the "first impression" rose and then proceeded to rub it in the noses of all the other girls and became totally obnoxious about it.

Yay Ken Doll! Also, he had the rocks to propose. Most of the others totally wimp out.

I cried my eyes out when he proposed to Tessa! Now, I never watched a second of this show but it was fun to just watch the finale where I just got to see the "nice girls" and the nice dates instead of all the bad stuff. There was nothing else I wanted to watch after DWTS and Tessa just got my attention right away. What a lovely young woman. I have to admit that even though "The Bachelor" was a total "Ken Doll" I really found myself liking him. Certainly more than any of "The Bachelors" I have seen interviewed on entertainment shows in the past, and WAY better than that awful Joe Millionaire Razz

I find it all odd that these people put themselves through all of that in front of cameras. I do really hope these two stay together and have a beautiful wedding and happy life. I read an article about these shows and it stated only 3 couples have stayed together out of all the shows - so crossing fingers they become the 4th.

I think the next go around I will do the same thing and just watch "The Finale".

Andy creeped me out..why the hell did he tell both of them he loved them? He was pretty hot running without the shirt on and I do think he really did love Tessa all along but was afraid she didn't fill the same way. There was a spoiler out about Tessa winning from Page Six this week so I knew but I still watched. He had a lot of chemistry with Bevin but I knew he really wanted Tessa.

I saw Tessa and Andy on "The View" this morning and they asked him about telling Bevin he loved her. He meant like you love your mom, but he was "in love" with Tessa.

They were very demonstrative with each other. I like it when a guy shows he's really into a woman. He did say he was nervous if she really liked him the way he liked her.

They asked about the whole final date thing where they are given the option of being in the same room. He claims that those dates end at 3 a.m. and since it's the only time they get without cameras, they talk and fall asleep. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. I don't think sleazy Andrew Firestone went to sleep.

So, Andy was realistic and said they have to get to know each other again in the real world, but to me they looked like a real couple. I really hope this one lasts. I kinda feel about them the way I did with that fisherman guy where I could tell he was really in love with Mary. As a matter of fact, that was the only season where I was POSITIVE before the ceremony who he picked just by the way he talked about her and looked at her. This was a man who had fallen HARD. That was my favorite one besides Trista and Ryan.

Does anyone remember when Jen turned down that HUNK? He was so sweet and sincere and she was so cold and unyielding. I wanted to reach through the TV and strangle her!

A new one starts tonight, but I have no idea of who the Bachelor is as I haven't seen anything about it. I'll be watching though. Anyone else?

Sorry, this show always creeps me out a bit Shocked Sometimes I watch just the finale to see if he does propose to someone, but no Bachelor has stuck with his pick yet. I'm surprised there isn't more Bachelorettes because at least she actually married her pick and they are still together. I think expecting a baby or maybe had the baby already.

I haven't really watched this show since, I guess, the first two. BUT, there has been a lot of publicity for this one here because the Bachelor is an Austinite. He and his brothers own a few local bars. Looks like a nice guy. Still not sure I'll tune it.

I read that that Bachelorette and her husband (Trista and Ryan, I think) recently had their baby. I did watch their show and the one she was on first where she came in second. I didn't like her on that show, but I did like her on the Bachelorette.

Funny, I hated Trista when she was on "The Bachelor" but completely turned around when she was The Bachelorette. I'm sure they did a personality makeover on her.

Last season's Bachelor broke up with Tessa. Sigh. They're still seeing each other, but they're not engaged.

This guy does not excite me.
