Shocker! Another “Bachelor” pair bites the dust!

The Bachelor's Emily Maynard and Brad Womack SplitIt baffles me that ABC’s The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise remains as popular as ever when less than a handful of the couples from the show have gone the distance.
We all know that meeting on a reality show is not going to lead to lasting love but I suppose it leads to good entertainment if you can suspend your disbelief.
Emily Maynard and Brad Womack, who united in the spring edition of the show, have already decided to call it quits, according to People Magazine.
“We’re no longer engaged,” a teary-eyed Maynard told PEOPLE minutes after taping an intimate interview with Bachelor host Chris Harrison, for a segment scheduled to air during the July 11 episode of ABC’s The Bachelorette.
Womack, the controversial bachelor who returned to the show after not choosing anyone the first time, takes the blame: “The demise of our relationship was completely my fault.”
Okay, so how about hunky Brad just try!

  1. I’m just gonna throw this out there. “Big Brother” has shown that networks can shoot and edit a reality program as close to “live” as possible. The biggest problem with shows like “The Bachelor” is that these couples have to keep their relationships secret for months until the finale airs. If reality shows shot more like “Big Brother” then the finale would be only a few days after the contestants had chosen and could be done live on the air. Then the “happy” couple could begin their lives openly and not in secret. This would be a first step.

    I also believe that dating shows should follow the natural progression of “real dating” and, if the feeling is there, allow the contestants to sleep together. There is no higher gauge in a relationship than sexual combatibility. Yeah, this might come off as distasteful to a viewing audience because they could perceive the one being sought after as a “slut” or “dog” because they sleep with (for instance) ten partners over a course of weeks but how is that any different than what happens in real life when meeting in a bar or through friends? I think this would add a whole new exciting dynamic to the show.

    To be honest, I only watch THE BACHELORETTE for the hot guys and also like BACHELOR PAD, too. The only thing that makes me scratch my head (besides dandruff..yes, I do wash my hair everyday) is that these BACHELORS are very cute, educated and have good jobs…why do they have a problem looking for love? Again, the BACHELORS have the looks, personality, employment, etc., so what is the problem? Over the past bachelor shows, there has been a pilot, doctor, and a lawyer and you mean to tell me with their looks/physique and profession, they can’t find a decent woman? Come on, something is wrong with this picture?
