So I heard this totally weird rumor this morning that’s making me feel kind of funny inside. Apparently Jennifer Lawrence wants to be onÂ The Bachelor.Â Like really badly. According to the casual-truth-tellers atÂ The NationalÂ Enquirer,Â she had to be talked out of the idea at one point.
…she approached the showâs host Chris Harrison at the Oscars and gushed about it. Whatâs more, she once pleaded with her handlers to try to get her onto the popularÂ ABCÂ dating competition.Â âHer agent and publicist were aghast,â said a source. âThey told her, âYou donât want to do this!â âShe said, âYes, I do.âÂ âThey had to talk her out of it.â
I love Jennifer Lawrence, but I do not loveÂ The Bachelor. It’s just not my kind of reality dating show. Not when I can still remember the glory days of watching 3 A.M episode ofÂ Blind Date during sleepovers. The only way I can wrap my mind around this story is if I go with the idea that Jennifer Lawrence is so in character forÂ Catching FireÂ that she forgot how reality TV works.
You can’t dress up likeÂ Katniss EverdeenÂ for work every day and not start confusingÂ The BachelorÂ withÂ The Hunger Games, contestants gettingÂ voted off and contestants getting killed off. J.Law probably just wants to participate in a real life murder game. Â And I mean, who among us doesn’t? Ever since I read the book, that’s all I can think about. That and Peeta Mellark’s frosting skills. If only he lived in the days when cupcakes were all the rage — he’d have made a fortune. A Â (figuratively) bloody fortune.
So I’m going to assume that J.Law only got this silly idea in her head because she’s acting in a movie that’s about a reality show. A reality show that only crosses a few more lines than the ones we have on today. I mean, have you see promos for that new diving show, Splash? We’re not that far off from our ownÂ Hunger GamesÂ people, not that far off at all. It’s time for prayer and serious reflection.
