The Bachelorette: The Tale Of James And The Crocodile Tears

The Bachelorette: The Tale Of James And The Crocodile Tears

Look guys, it’s me! I’m back again, and this week my disillusionment has spread from The Bachelorette, to reality television, to love itself. This is what you’re doing to me with your fairytale chatter week after week, Desiree Hartsock. I hope you’re proud of yourself. Last night Des had one job — send James home. Should she do it? Yes. Will she do it? That’s anyone’s guess.

The Bachelorette: Yes, They Really Had A Mr. America Pageant

The Bachelorette: Yes, They Really Had A Mr. America Pageant

You guys are welcome, because I watched The Bachelorette again last night so you wouldn’t have to and yes, it is still getting worse with every episode! Thank you for asking!

Jimmy Kimmel Predicting The Bachelorette Winner May Be More Entertaining Than The Show

Jimmy Kimmel Predicting The Bachelorette Winner May Be More Entertaining Than The Show

Jimmy Kimmel predicts the winner of this season of The Bachelorette as a man by the name of Brooks Forester. Desiree Hartsock never confirms or denies anything, so you can go nuts analyzing her responses and body language as much as you want, but I really just need to talk about this guy’s name for a second, while I have you here. Brooks. Forester. That is absurd. That’s the name of a kid born out of the blissful union of a sensible four-door sedan and an L.L. Bean catalogue. More »
