    I don't think I'm quite that bad. I don't really expect them to find "true love", but I want them to at least PRETEND that's what they are there for. Let me have a little bit of fantasy, ok?

    I'm more delusional than most. I just keep hoping to see a little bit of class and a lot less skin.

    I saw that report this morning. It was an Opinion piece by a young nerdy guy commenting on love (Valentine's Day) focused on the 10 years of hopelessness that is the Bach/ette. He did say that the franchise does produce one thing, and that is celebrity - shots of the tabloids appeared.

    So, do we watch to see who will make the People cover or...?

    Unfortunately, I'm afraid that this is going to set a bad precedent. One girl who has something going for her will jump all over the lead, doing anything and everything, no matter how outrageous, to claim him. That future girl knows it will lead to lots of publicity and so will just be there to see her face on a few magazine covers.

    Great. A future of Courtney clones. Something we all have to look forward to.

    Yep I was at the grocery store this morning - Courtney was on the cover of two of the tabloids. I believe you're right Bab - this is the beginning of a whole slew of Courtneys in the future....

    Ugh. The only thing we can hope for is a Bachelor that is more grown up than Ben, who doesn't think with his penis, but rather his brain. Some may not like like Brad, but I don't think he would have found Courtney's behavior attractive at all. I just hope that they can find some MEN that would send girls like Courtney packing.

    CH made a comment before the season started airing that the lead sets the tone for the way the contestants behave. I agree that Brad didn't give the women the impression that they needed to be aggressive and "sex it up" in order to get his attention or gain his affection. Dare I say that Ben gave his women a different impression? Thus, poor Jamie acting so out of character because she thought it was the only way to get Ben to notice her.
