I have never watched this show or The Bachelor, but for the past couple of weeks, my wife has had this on and I have watched at her request. This is, without a doubt, the worst show on TV.
I wish I could go into detail, but I cant becasue it is painful to rehash it.
The Bachelorette Ashley (a loser in the Bachelor) is so boring without a shred of a personality and use crocodile tears to get out of anything and to get pity. Why any man would want to be with her is shocking.
From now on, anytime my wife says "I can't beleive you watch _______________", my response will be "At least I don't watch The Bachelorette."
Its trainwreck TV at it's worst. My wife loves it - and I love to mock it. There's absolutely NO logic to it whatsoever.
Ashley is cute, but that's all I can really say about her. She's really stupid, though - the way she dismissed some dude last week because another guy told her that we would consider online dating. Thing is - when confronted about it, he told her he was JOKING - but she still sent him to the curb. What a bitch.
I will say, I respected the one guy who walked off the show because she said she was into another guy (Bradley?) who left. But then my wife said it was a calculated move and he will most likely be the next bachelor. Part of me died right there for beleiving someone on this show did NOT put their own selfish needs first. Shame on me.
It is interesting that you guys bring this show up now. I remember reading about how bad this Ashley girl is, but tonight at the gym this show was on. I semi-watched it with the sound off and the captioning on. The talk between Ashley and this Bradley (?) dude was pretty inane and the rest of the show wasn't much better.
She is pretty cute though.

The first episode of this "season" was in 2010. There's a clear narrative they're trying to tell over the course of the season, but it's a bit tough to get into it when they alternate airing eight episodes and disappearing for four months.
