Show: The Bachelor Pad
Time: Mondays at 8pm
Setting of Critique: My couch, Merlot and Skinny Cow Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream in hand, sweat pants welcome.
Let me just start by giving ABC a big standing ovation for giving all of us Bachelor addicts a fix immediately after Ali's season ended! How merciful you are, Chris Harrison.
In my humble opinion, The Bachelor Pad, quite possibly could surpass both of it's predecessors. Who doesn't love watching some of the same old crazies wave their crazy flag loudly and proudly, yet again? Didn't they learn anything the first go round?! Thankfully for us, they apparently did not and must not have parents to yank a not in their chain and tell them to wear underwear the second time around on national television. Bad for them, quite entertaining for those of us at home. Plus, upping the anty with ridiculous competitions and a cash prize of $250K...could this get any better? Cast get ready cuz I'm pretty certain there's a bus in your near future and a lot of folks are about to be thrown under it!
I think the best part of the 2 hour premier was watching characters that we "thought" we knew and loved start to show their true colors. Would I have swooned for Tool bag Jesse K had he declared his middle name was "lie and deceive" on his season with Jillian? Um, that'd be a no. Would I have fallen in love with Tenly had she acted like a 5 year old on the first day of big kid school on Jake's season? Again, no thank you. This show will surely bring light to the fact that no one is perfect (well, maybe Kypton still is) and no matter how well you can hide it for awhile, eventually it's gonna come out and it ain't gonna be purty!
So sit back, grab your sweats and a glass of wine, and pull up some couch. We're on the verge of one brilliant, train wreck of a show and I couldn't be more excited!
