Scanning the MSNBC headlines today, I saw “Ben Flajnik named as new ‘Bachelor.‘” Apparently, this is the 16th installment of ABC’s show, and I can honestly say that I’ve never watched it. Some of my girlfriends do, so I won’t knock it too much (actually, only one girlfriend watches it, and she’s obsessed enough for all of us). If people think they can find love on a TV show, then so be it. The rate of success on “The Bachelor/Bachelorette” is probably no slimmer than blind dates, online dating, being set up by mutual friends or meeting in social settings. My only question is: How do all these people find the time to leave their jobs and personal commitments to go on a TV show? I can barely find time to take a vacation or long weekend, and this is months of filming! And I won’t even go into the issues I’d have with living in a house with dozens of women, all fighting for one guy’s affections. Nope, not for me. Maybe that’s why I’ve never watched it. Sorry, Carrie!
