I have never been able to stomach a single episode of the Bachelor or
Bachelorette reality shows--when I have started to watch, I found it completely
insulting, sexist and phony. I also think the values of marriage are
incorrectly portrayed when everyone is watching in. If it's not like the
"other" show, then why are you titling it that way? If it is more of a
panel discussion, call it something else, this could be misleading to the very
people you are trying to attract to watch. For those of you who don't like
this kind of thing, just do what I do and turn it off/don't tune in. From
someone who married older, ugh, in my 30's, take my word for it--stay the
course and be happy with yourself (marriage will not "make" you
happier), with your education, spirituality, etc, and engage in things that
bring good to those around you. You might be surprised to find someone when you
least expect it by just being yourself! No one needs to watch TV trash that
makes true love look like a fairy tale--neither one portrays what real love is
I think it's an opportunity to show the world how something like this can
be done modestly, fun, and appropriate...anything lovely, praiseworthy, or of
good report...Just hope it is done well and not awkward or weird--
we don't need another sub-par Mormon production.
Stop with the nasty comments. This is not like the TV show at all. And it
gives young people a chance to meet others whom they might not otherwise meet.
Once women graduate from college and are out in the workforce their chances of
getting married drop signigicantly. I know from personal experience. Believe
me, the Mormon Bachelorette has no resemblance to the tawdry show it's
If this is like the other Bachorlette series, it is appalling that any LDS woman
would be involved. The whole premise of the "other" one is based on
superficial attraction, and decisions based on things of little or no importance
in a lasting relationship. I do not see how this could possibly lead to a
marriage for time and eternity.
Popularity. It is seductive.
Why must we ape the madness of the world around us? What's next, asking
the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to do rap? These so-called "reality" shows
are sick and sad.
What next? I can't stand the Bachelor/Bachelorette series on tv. How
substandard will this be?
