Tonight’s Bachelor made me even more uncomfortable than usual. For some reason, Amanda was really worried that Matt wouldn’t invite her to forgo her individual room to join him in the fantasy suite. Not sure why… I know Bachelors have to say they’re looking for love or the one or whatever, but obviously they’re in it more for the ride than the destination… starting with the getting to know you hot tub parties and ending with the fantasy suite dates. Brad kept it real by not even choosing a winner in the finale. Thank you, Brad, for not insulting us with the proposal charade.
Anyway, back to Amanda: I don’t know if she thought Matt might be afraid her meeps would keep him up all night or what, but she kept agonizing over whether or not she’d get an invite to shack up, and I started to wonder what she was really referring to in her cutaways:
- “I feel like it’s make it or break it time, and I really want to make it.”
- “I was really afraid that he wasn’t going to give it to me.”
- “I was so glad that he pulled it out and offered it.”
Meep! Make it stop!
P.S. WTF was with the seductive slow-mo of
Oh… Amanda just got eliminated… now I’m feeling bad. Well I think it’s for the best anyway. Amanda seems like a sweet girl, and Matt’s way too smooth—calls all of his dates “honey”—the old pet name trick couldn’t be a more obvious sign that he’s all too schooled in dating more than one woman at a time.
