The newest season of “The Bachelor,” starring Juan Pablo, kicks off tomorrow night and it’s basically all Drew can talk about. He is crazy about “The Bachelor.” The TV show, I mean, not Juan Pablo, although I think he’d agree with me that Juan is the best bachelor they’ve had in many seasons, and both of us can’t wait to see what kinda crazy is thrown his way. Drew has a buddy at work, Tony, who is “Bachelor”-obsessed, too, and the two of them routinely text through episodes like sorority sisters and then have Tuesday morning post-show pow-wows that can apparently last as long as the episodes themselves.
This year, Drew and Tony created a game that all of you at home can play, too. I don’t think they have a name for it, but for convenience sake, let’s call it The Bachelor Premiere Guessing Game. What you do is: you go to “The Bachelor” official website and check out the cast of bachelorettes and try to guess who will fit what role this season. The big roles are: The Winner; The Crazy One; The One Everyone Hates (this is usually the one the other girls think is there for the “wrong reasons,” but not always necessarily). Supporting roles include: The One Who’s All “Fuck This shit” And Bails on The Third Episode; The One with a “Big” Secret (you know, like, she’s divorced or she has celiac disease or she’s saving herself for marriage) She Reveals in a Weepy One-on-One Scene in the First Episode; Most Embarrassing Entrance (tells idiotic joke or trips over). You can also create your own categories! Go ahead, it’s fun.
Here are my picks:
The Winner: Victoria
The Crazy One: Lucy
The One Everyone Hates: Cassandra
The One Who’s All “Fuck This shit” And Bails on The Third Episode: Sharleen
The One with a “Big” Secret (i.e. divorce or celiac disease or virgin): Lauren H.
Most Embarrassing Entrance: Amy J.
Most likely to be the best Bachelorette: Andi
Final four: Victoria (winner); Andi; Clare, and Alli
