Last night was the premiere of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.” This season, Andi Dorfman, a smokeshow attorney from Atlanta, will date 25 of America’s most eligible bachelors. For the next 10 weeks, we will watch as Andi plays just the tip with her pick of dudes until she finds “the one.”
Every season is stacked with a wide variety of men, and this season does not disappoint. There’s Carl, a 6 foot 3 firefighter from Florida, who, just by looking at him, you can tell he’s the kind of guy to unzip your pants with his teeth. Then there’s Bradley, an opera singer from Michigan, who looks like he’s no stranger to butt chugging–it preserves his vocal cords.
Based on the season highlight trailer, it looks like this season is going to be a royal shitshow. Nothing says “pure entertainment” like watching a group of successful men cry like fucking babies and fight like little girls for a rose.
However, I think the show is lacking one thing: a fair representation of America’s less prominent bachelors. I know they wouldn’t be as sexy, because most people don’t want to watch an average Joe secretly fingerbang a beautiful woman under a blanket during a picnic in Paris, but I say let’s give that guy his due. If dating has taught me one thing, it’s that it isn’t all handsome doctors and lawyers out there.
Here’s a rundown of who Andi could be dating if ABC hadn’t pulled together a goldmine of men to fall in love with her on national TV.
