I like being spoiled.
Not just with lil treats and happies, but with my reality television show endings.
I need spoilers to survive this cruel & unusual world.
Specifically, I have to know The Bachelor/ette spoilers or I can hardly watch the show. I don’t want to be surprised, I don’t want a plot twist. I want to know what I’m getting into. This is why before every season I stalk the blogs until I discover the ending and every twist and turn leading up to it. I’m prepared, I’m ready. I am usually the go-to in my friend group for Bach news. (I have very little joy, leave me be.) For SOME reason I cannot comprehend, my sources don’t have the dirt this season. They speculate, but no one KNOWS how this season ends. It’s driving me absolutely bonkers. How am I just supposed to WATCH the show for the next four weeks and not know who he picks and will ultimately break up with in 3-4 months? Who do you think I am?
In my next life, I hope I’m one of those kewl, enlightened girls who couldn’t be bothered with the trash fire that is reality television.
