It's that time again

January 7, 2009 - Cindy Votruba
It’s January and it’s time for more reality TV for me! And of course, the first show has to fall on Monday, “The Bachelor.” Turns out that “House” is moving to Monday against another show I watch, “Big Bang Theory,” so I’m a little torn. What if I’m not home on Monday? What do I tape? (yes, I still have a VCR and nothing else). I’m letting you know now, “House” will be the show I tape as I also record it for another person.

Anyway, back to “The Bachelor.” This season’s pick is Jason, last year’s runnerup who got essentially dissed for a professional snowboarder (and since that season, that couple broke up in November). I taped the two-hour premiere and watched most of it yesterday. Twenty-five women ranging in ages from 23 to 36 stepped out of stretch limos in evening gowns. The squeeing over Jason got a little annoying. Sure he’s cute and most honorably, a single dad, but c’mon, he’s not all that.

Each woman tried to be as distinctive as they could. From the woman who tried to do a few salsa steps with Jason to Stacy the dental hygienist who approached him with these goofy-looking fake teeth.

Then came the “meet-and-greet,” where Jason tries to get to know the 25 women as best he can in the matter of an evening. Stacy started gushing about how she knew so much about him (ie. his birthday, July 5, etc.). I’m surprised she didn’t know his blood type and Social Security number. My favorite was when she said she kinda started sounding like a stalker. “But I’m not,” she said. She just did her homework. He started getting that “this woman is missing a few” look on his face. Then there was the Spanish teacher who quit her job just so she could meet him. And since Jason is a single dad, there seems to be quite a few single moms among the 25 women.

Now I haven’t finished watching the tape yet, so I don’t know all who were elminated. I read on for a few comments. I agree with a bit of them.

BTW, there’s also a show on NBC Monday nights called “Momma’s Boy.” Almost along the same line as “The Bachelor,” except that it’s three guys looking for love and their mothers are along for the ride putting in their three cents. Next week starts season 8 of “American Idol.” Ack, another show to tape! Wonder what musical talent will crawl out of the woodwork this year?
