So I heard this totally weird rumor this morning that’s making me feel kind of funny inside. Apparently Jennifer Lawrence wants to be on The Bachelor. Like really badly. According to the casual-truth-tellers at The National Enquirer, she had to be talked out of the idea at one point.
…she approached the show’s host Chris Harrison at the Oscars and gushed about it. What’s more, she once pleaded with her handlers to try to get her onto the popular ABC dating competition. “Her agent and publicist were aghast,” said a source. “They told her, ‘You don’t want to do this!’ “She said, ‘Yes, I do.’ “They had to talk her out of it.”
I love Jennifer Lawrence, but I do not love 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 of 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 for Catching Fire that she forgot how reality TV works.
You can’t dress up like Katniss Everdeen for work every day and not start confusing The Bachelor with The Hunger Games, contestants getting voted off and contestants getting killed off. J.Law probably just wants to participate in a real life murder game. 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 (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 own Hunger Games people, not that far off at all. It’s time for prayer and serious reflection.
