There was an electricity running through the office today. It’s not like tonight is the Super Bowl or anything, but there will be a championship ring, if you will. Typically it’s a ring from Neil Lane and it’s intended for the hand of the woman to whom Juan Pablo offers the final rose. I won’t chase the rabbit trail of my prediction for tonight (Nikki wins, no proposal, they already broke up, and Andi’s the next Bachelorette) but I will say this… creators of the show need to reach out beyond the pool of former contestants for the next Bachelor and Bachelorette. I like Andi, she’s probably a nice girl. But the method they use to choose the star of every following season is very much like my dog eating her own vomit. It’s never going to be better than it was the first time around. Somehow, though, ABC continues to tell us it’s “the most dramatic season ever” or especially tonight, “the finale all of America will be talking about.”
But I’ll stop being a Negative Nancy. I’ll be Positive Paul because I’m the commissioner of the CMT Bachelor Fantasy League and tonight is our Super Bowl! One winner will be crowned and I’m excited to be keeping stats for the next 4 hours! Call me weird, just don’t call me late for dinner… and definitely don’t call me and tell me to apply to be on the show!
