Guilty Pleasure

Anyone know this beautiful, fresh faced single girl???

I admit it - reality tv is one of guilty pleasures.

One of my favorites has always been the Bachelor/Bachelorette.

Jillian Harris is the current Bachelorette working to find her prince charming on Monday nights in front of millions of viewers. I liked Jillian from the start (and was my favorite gal from the Jason season of the Bachelor). Beyond being beautiful, she seemed to be intelligent, a quality often missing from reality show participants.

Jillian had a VERY handsome group of men to choose from - with some duds and wackos thrown in for good measure. At times she frustrated me. Perhaps at age 42 with 18 years of marriage under my belt she could have called me and I could have offered up some perspective! Of course, she never did.

I would have told her to keep the nice guys, dump the ones with foot fetishes, country music careers and aspiring break dancers. I would have told her to put less value on which men told her their "feelings" - good men often have a hard time with that while the ones that tell you are often not sincere.

But thank you Jillian - for Monday evenings when I put the kids to bed, pour myself a glass of wine and watch you fumble along trying to find that "perfect" prince charming.

Anyone else watching Jillian??? Who will she choose?? I don't particularly have a favorite but would love to hear from others who are watching...

Oh, and by the way - the kick-ass sis in law.....she won the Hardrock 100 (for the women), came in 3rd overall and set a new women's course record - 27 hours and 18 minutes.. I am in awe.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Oh, I'm a fan. I usually do a Bachelorette Review, but I've been lagging lately.

    My pick is Ed. At this point, I think Reid, Ed, and Kiptyn are great choices. I think Kiptyn's heart is not in it. I think Ed's is.

    I love your perspective that the really good, quality guys have a harder time saying it and don't just throw the words around.

    I'm thinking maybe she should have kept Reid around. He seemed like such a good match for her.

  2. Reid and Jillian are both quirky in the same way - I don't know why she let him go....the message boards have rumors that he returns?Hmmmmm, we shall see!

  3. Sorry, Jill, I don't usually dip into the Bachelor or Bachelorette til pretty late in the game and this one's totally gotten past me. What I am hooked on are the Bravo housewives series' (so embarrassing!) and Flipping Out which starts up again in a few weeks! And when does the new Design Star begin? So much bad reality tv... like irresistible junk food for my poor brain.

  4. Oh, I love the Housewives too and Flipping Out! Design Star is a do not miss for me....

  5. OMG, I am right there with you on Monday nights! It is my relaxing wind down time and I just LUV Jillian! Isn't she just the cutest thing! I hope she pics Ed!


  6. I was SO sad to see Reid go! :( But between Ed and Kiptyn, I pick Ed - for sure! I think Kiptyn seems sort of "take it, or leave it". I think she deserves more than that. But if I could have chosen for her, it would have been Reid...

    Can't wait for the next 2 episodes! :)

  7. The Bachelor/Bachelorette is my guilty pleasure too...and I've been faithfully watching this one from the beginning. I want her to pick Reid...they seem to be in love. But then thats our edited viewpoint, so never know how accurate it could be. I think he is going to come back and they're going to end up together. I DO NOT want her to pick Ed. There is something suspicious about him, in my opinion. I can't wait till next week!!! I'll be watching along with you!


I always love to hear your thoughts! Please share!
