THE BACHELOR: Season 13

My favorite show is back on Prime Time again! I don't know why I love this show so much? Maybe it's the boyishly handsome bachelor that the ladies fall all over, or the crazy women we all love to make fun of for their overly aggressive botox injections, or maybe it's simply the fairy tale ending when the happy couple falls madly in love and lives happily ever after (or for at least a few months). Whatever the reason, I love this stupid show.

For the season premiere my girlfriends and I met up at April's fabulous new place in Newport to enjoy some virgin margaritas and to watch the women of season 13 compete for the heart of Jason Mesnick. I must admit, I wasn't all that impressed with the pickings, but who am I to say! Regardless, at the beginning of every show I always like to pick my favorites and these are my top three:

NIKKI: 29, Administrative Assistant; Chicago, IL
NAOMI: 24, Flight Attendant; Carlsbad, CA
JILLIAN: 29, Interior Designer; Vancouver, BC, Canada

I guess we'll all just have to wait and see how far these three ladies go. Don't tell anyone, but my money's on Jillian (and it may or may not have to do with her occupation and hometown). I love this show!

Ok! I totally agree with you. It's a stupid show but it's addictive. As for the top three girls I don't know that I totally agree. I think that Nikki and Jillian will stay. As for Naomi. I think that she is a catty girl that isn't going to make it! But that's just my opinion! I actually would replace either Dominique or more then her Melissa with Naomi. Just my two cents...

i was totally bummed about this season because i am not a huge jason fan, but it looks like it will be full of drama and isn't that really why we all watch?!?!

Kim said...

Yeah, I'm glad that Deanna is coming back to add to the drama! Should be a real heart-wrencher!

I meant the girl on the right of the picture. sorry

charity said...

I'm with you on the top 3. Jillian is my fave so far. bring on the drama!!

I'm agreeing with your three picks, but I've got to say I'm still bitter he sent home the two girls who I thought were the most normal and down-to-earth: Julie and Stacia. Some of those girls were CRAZY! It makes for such good fun, though!

linds said...

I don't know why but I hope he gives DeAnna a second chance. I loved them together and I think all the girls are stupid.

Deanna is back??? What the crap? I need to catch up. I am sorry I missed this little Bachelor-loving gathering..Instead I was at home, during that fun time of month..sleeping for 12 hours. Ugh.

Okay, so I wasn't too impressed with the pickings either. I did like the Mom from Utah( of course) who didn't get a rose and also the cute blonde from Stockton, Ca. who didn't get a rose. I can't believe he gave that girl that tried to salsa dance at the beginning a rose. She was the one who quit her job. Give me a break. I love Naomi! She is my favorite by far.

Madsen Family said...

Hey, what about Melissa, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader??! She is a doll and I've read on spoilers that she makes it to the end...I am sooo addicted to this show and I LOVE JASON! What's wrong with you Jacki??! JK!

Ash and Christian said...

Can we talk about Deanna coming back? Pure drama. And who does she think she is? Seriously?

I can't handle how he chose the girl who said "I swear I'm not a stalker" like 15 times throughout their conversation. Is it weird that I kind of like the widower who has crazy make-up/eyebrows/talks kind of funny.

The hot dog girl was a crack-up. And you could totally see the color of the dress that the girl he proposes to wears during the previews. Guess they're not trying that hard to keep it a secret. I'm psycho when it comes to those kinds of things. I even figured it out a few seasons ago because I figured out the color of the girl's nail polish.

Ok, I'm embarrassed now. Thanks for the post.

I can't say that I am a huge fan this season...not because I don't like Jason, but because I have to question anyone who would put their child through all this drama! What kind of person could he possibly be looking for to help him raise his child on a TV SHOW!!! That's why the ONLY one I kind of liked is the widower....how can he really know how any one of these girls is going to truly treat his son when the cameras aren't rolling??? And if I was his ex - I'd have to say I'd be pissed!(sorry!) - really, you're looking for a step mom for my child on a tv show????????? I feel sorry for that little boy!
Any other season - the drama is pretty funny!
