I had high hopes for this last installment of the Bachelor. The bachelor was HOT, and he was in his 30's. I had visions of it ending a lot like Byron's season. I still think Byron's season worked because he was older and the women were a little older too.
After seeing the Jesse season, when the 25 year old picked practically a child to receive his one-way plane ticket, I was really tired of the Bachelor. I was tired of seeing 25 year old guys proclaim their readiness for settling down and getting married, and I was even sicker of seeing these little 21 year old girls saying they were ready for marriage. That's just silly. I don't know what the average age of men and women are going into their first marriage nowadays, but I'd bet it's older than 25 for the men and 21 for the women.
I really want to find out what the hell happened with Travis and sarah, but I wonder if we will really ever know. I would really hate to think that Sarah pulled a Jen -like stunt.
If they continue with the series, I would hope that the Bachelor or Bachelorette would be someone who really wants to do the show and is open to the idea of getting engaged to someone after a very short courtship. Blob was begged/coerced into doing the show too, wasn't he? And we know how that turned out.
I would also hope they go with people who are mature enough to really be willing to settle down. I still think that's why the Byron season is my favorite ever
