Don't judge me, people...
If you have been living under a rock, here's the concept. One woman meets 30 men...and each week, she gives a "rose" to the guys who will STAY...and she sends somebody home every week.
|Hannah started with 30 "bachelors"|
|From the first week, Luke P. has been one of her favorites. Lilly refers to him as "Mr. 40 I.Q."|
For example, something as simple as talking to another person and getting to know them....
During one conversation between Hannah and "Mr. 40 I.Q." -- Lilly counted the number of times both of them said the word "like". OMG...it is SUCH A BAD SPEECH HABIT. Maybe they don't even realize they're saying it -- but won't they be embarrassed when they watch this show back? Because, in the course of maybe two minutes, Hannah used the word "like" 53 times...and Luke wasn't far behind...with 41....
It was, like, so annoying!! Like, do you know what I mean?
Also, I am constantly pointing out to Lilly that Hannah only TALKS about having real conversations. She never really has one. And, when faced with an uncomfortable silence (this happens to her A LOT), her go-to move is to start french-kissing whatever bachelor she's with. Ugh.
So, in many ways, the Bachlorette has provided lessons in what NOT TO DO when you're trying to get to know somebody.
Then, too, there's this.
Every contestant, when he's on camera, has his name on the screen, and his "job" underneath. Like, Connor is an investment analyst, Peter is a pilot, yada yada...
|Garrett is a "golf pro"|
Lilly: What's a golf pro, Grandma?
Me: It's a boy who likes to play golf...so he tries to get on the tour and win money, but he isn't good enough. Unfortunately, he spent too much time during college playing golf, he can't get a real job so he sits in the clubhouse at a golf course, selling clubs and giving lessons to guys like Grandpa.
This Grandma is all about the education, people...
Later on in that episode, some guy named Grant was being sent home. Under his name, the screen said, "unemployed"...and I started to laugh -- because who, in their right mind, would choose a guy who has NO job??
While eating her popcorn, Lilly commented, "yeah, well -- what choice did he have? Golf Pro was already taken."
