I find it surprising that every season the women are almost universally interested in whoever the chosen Bachelor is.
My Bach history is sketchy, but I can think of one, possibly two occasions in which a contestant has decided to take herself out of the game (one guy also bowed out during Trista's season).
Are these participants always interested in the guy, or is it that they get caught up in the idea of being the chosen one?
The fact that so many of these relationships don't last, a couple barely made it to the end of the post show publicity tour does make me wonder these supposedly burgeoning relationships we see are based on genuine attraction to the Bachelor or on the desire to be the last woman standing.
I really think there is an element of "out of 25 women, he chose me...".
It's just hard for the cynic in me to believe that every season every woman is interested enough in every Bachelor to stay in the running until they don't receive a rose.
