    This rosette goes to jlccaz for her take on The Bachelor.

    The "hot AND well educated" comment had all the earmarks of a producer-initiated remark elicited as a joke and aired as real. That's SOP for reality tv. Six weeks of producers trying to bait them into on-camera conduct unbecoming of their normal selves.

    Lovely concept for a show, eh?

    Was anyone else grossed out by the gaping gawping clapping 100% female attendees at the WTA SPECTACLE? Are we online "fans" any better or different?

    The "TELL ALL" that SHOULD be written is one by female producers of this show, and how they live with themselves for architecting and airing this anti-woman spectacle season after season. I don't blame ABC for selling out to advertisers and the crowd-- it's a corporation with shareholders to please. I don't blame bachelors with lonely hearts, hefty wallets and businesses to promote. I don't blame Chris Harrison for reading those dopey dopey lines year after year -- he has a family to feed.

    But it's fair to ask how individual -- yes, WELL EDUCATED -- females in television can live with themselves after collaborating to cast, produce, edit and air these spectacles that reduce women to body parts, "gone wild" moments, cattiness, desperation to find a man, and single out for special attack/ridicule a woman seeking a well educated life partner!

    There isn't enough anti bacterial soap in the world to clean your hands of that dirty work. And I hope that they read this.

    Well said jlccaz. We know Mike Fleiss views women as objects, but you are right to question why the women involved in production can't seem to figure out a way to make this show less misogynistic, or why the female viewing audience doesn't take a stronger stand against the production methods.

    The latest recipient of the POTW rosette is... memorylane, who managed to sum up how a lot of people feel about this seaosn of ANTM.

    I just think that Tyra, who has a substantially LARGE ego has allowed the show to turn into a farce. She is showing favoritism and her personality is over-bearing as far as I am concerned. I know that it takes a large ego to be as successful as she is but it also takes some knowledge of who her audience is and that her over-the-top antics may be going a bit too far.

    When she put Chantal through the wringer tonight making her pose and then making fun of her I thought it was very unkind and not at all helpful. Her comments to Heather were ridiculous since she knew all along that Heather would NEVER be able to win the contest due to her disability. She did well and learned a lot but she is not going to be Tyra's idea of a Top Model winner in this lifetime.

    I have no idea what Tyra is looking for anymore....the candidates are just too average as I said before and they aren't that charming or likeable either.

    Bianca is a brat, Saleisha is pretty but not all that unusual looking and the blondes...well...they look washed out.

    I think that Saleisha will win the whole thing because she appears to have Tyra's seal of approval and that's ridiculous because the show isn't over yet and it isn't very suspenseful if Tyra acts like she already has picked the winner.

    Like so many other Reality shows, this one may be reaching it's end-time.

    I am getting bored with the whole thing and not having anyone to root for is no fun.
    Congratulations
