The international dates start soon…so there’s that

By Melinda Mawdsley

I feel terrible.

After talking Rachel into finally watching a season of “The Bachelor” with me, ABC throws up this dud. I don’t mean to be rude, but from an entertainment standpoint, this season of “The Bachelor” is the worst ever.

Seriously, the depth of some of these women’s conversations makes my ears hurt. Juan Pablo isn't better.

This week, Rachel and I settled in to finally start learning these women’s names and more about their “personalities.”

It’s obviously what Juan Pablo, or JP, was thinking, too.

The night started with Cassandra, 21, a mother and former NBA dancer, making a quiet dinner in JP’s kitchen while unfortunately being dressed for brunch at a bistro.

But JP likes her. So there’s that.

This week's group date was essentially a chance for JP to remind everyone at home how good he is at soccer and to force the women to run around so he could see who was athletic and who wasn't. YAWN!

The highlight of the week was Rachel joining the Twitter-verse for this show and taking the opportunity to show off her Spanish. Bueno.


It should start to get better, however, for no other reason than the international dates begin, turning “The Bachelor” from a show about "love?" into a travel show, which is fine by us because we aren't really digging anything about this season now. Thanks a lot to all the women who flooded ABC's polls demanding JP be the next bachelor after Desiree kicked him off IN THE MIDDLE OF HER SEASON BECAUSE SHE SAW NOTHING!

See you after Week 4.
