Welcome to the Red Carpet Event….wha…? The Bachelor Season 19

Welcome to the Red Carpet Event….wha…?
Who: Chris Soules from Arlington Iowa is the next bachelor due to not being chosen from last season’s bachelorette he became a popular bachelor and owns a six thousand acre  land. Chris appeared in the Andi season and became a fan favorite. I called him Farmer Chris on my wordspress blog which Chris Harrison adopted.
The opening of The Bachelor with the live red carpet event, for me was a step too far.
I felt that I was forced to watch something that was so completely unnecessary. I was not happy when I looked at my DVR and saw the bachelor was three hours I said to myself, ‘three hours of what?”
Sean and Catherine showed up to the red carpet along with Deanna and her husband when you have all of these people coming out of the limo like they are someone famous and they’re not. These are single people who have continuously made for names of themselves on television when it comes to dating what people do in private we have seen them displayed on the show.
Chris Harrison interviews Sean and Catherine basically nosing in on their relationship asking about when they plan on having babies which I think is rather personal but that is personal for anybody not just for people who have displayed looking for love on TV.
Moving forward Chris interviews Marcus and Lacy who met on the Bachelor in Paradise show and ended up falling in love and getting engaged rather quickly. They talked about having a wedding in the summertime but no date has been proposed yet.They go on to introduce some of the girls that will meet Farmer Chris starting with Britt from Los Angeles, rather pretty, she’s a waitress. She went on to discuss her last relationship, that she did not have sex at all and that she benefited from the relationship by appreciating who he was without the physical aspect. Apparently she gives out free hugs.
Jillian from D.C is 25 and she’s a national news producer. OMG this girl is fierce she was lifting the only weights definitely a training type of a girl can’t see her with Chris because she is too much out there.
Amanda 24 from Lake in the Hills Illinois she’s A ballerina instructor. In her interview she says she lives with her mom, she likes not having to pay bills and not cooking and not doing much of anything. Clearly not a woman design for Chris who’s an active farmer. I don’t think he will appreciate having a partner who’s lazy.
Whitney, a fertility nurse is 29 years old from Chicago Illinois. She helps couples who are struggling to have babies.  Being a nurse and being a fertility nurse seems just about right for Chris.
McKenzie, 21 is too young. I don’t know what she does but she already has a child who she named after a vegetable Kale.
Moving on to flight attendant Alyssa, 24 from New Jersey and cute she seems like the right girl for him.
Kelsey, 28, lives in Austin Texas and a school counselor is a widow for year and four months. Her husband was walking to work when his heart just stopped. Clearly emotional about this death, after all it was her husband, someone she was building a life with makes me question if she is a good candidate for someone who is looking to settle down. She’s very pretty and has a great body and seems really upbeat. Looks like from the coming attractions, she’s a contender.
Cutting back to the bachelor premiere on this useless red carpet Chris Harrison interviews and Andi and her big headed pick Josh who was not a fan favorite at all at least not for me. I’m not sure where Chris Harrison’s head is that he actually believes that these people walk down the street and they have the paparazzi chasing after them. They seemed really lovey dovey. The whole time Andi and Josh were talking to Chris Harrison, she was massaging Josh’s back. I thought to myself, “Wow maybe there is something there after all.” – (this was before I found out just the other day (Thursday. Jan 8th they broke up – more comments here)
I guess the useful thing about this red carpet was the Break up with Juan Pablo and Nikki because she was the most hated woman in the Juan Pablo season.
Chris Harrison had asked her about what was going through her mind the night that they reunited after the final Rose and how she seem to spill out or her emotions and Juan Pablo did not.
She talked about how it’s hard to have a relationship in the public eye and while she felt comfortable with expressing her feelings in public display and he did not, she stated she was fine with that because she knew that going into the relationship with him. And at the end of the day she chose to stand by him whether or not he displayed affection.
She also stated their break up was because of their careers and living in two different states. Even though they tried to make an effort to make the relationship work it did not. It was more of they had different priorities and different lifestyles. Chris asked her that even though they had different priorities was she a priority and Juan Pablo’s life and I could see the discomfort in her face when he was asking her that question.
She went on to say that she knew that she was not the number one priority in his life that place is for his daughter.  They are just different people but aspiring to accomplish different things which I think is bullshit.
I think he wasn’t into her like she thought he was or maybe he just wanted her to be something else that she was not. Chris also asked did she feel that he was in love with her and she said yes that she felt he was at some point but it just was too late to work things out as a couple.
 How she felt about the backlash when Chris pointed out about what the media outlets were saying about her, Nikki says that even though she did sign up for it, nothing  prepared her for the things that people had said about her. If she had seriously watched herself with an open mind, perhaps she wouldn’t have liked herself either.
As for JP, I believe he wasn’t into anyone and he was just playing along with what the producers either may have wanted or he just didn’t want to be another Brad Womack, who eventually chose no one and became the most hated man in Bachelor history.
Nikky did admit that Juan Pablo did tell her that he loved her in private and insisted that he really was a good person despite of what was depicted on national TV.
I don’t know, if it’s reality television how much more unreal can you be?
