I Have a Confession

Okay, here goes...my confession.

I watch some reality TV.

And I really enjoy it!

I've been watching this season of the Bachelorette with DeAnna Pappas, except for the first episode. Last night DeAnna accepted the proposal of Jesse, and I sat there with tears in my eyes.
I really do think that she had the right two at the end. Prior to last night's episode I felt that either one would be great for her, however, that changed as the 2 hour episode went on.

Jason has a three year old son, and he introduced DeAnna to him. They seemed to get along great. DeAnna is 26 years old and wants to have three children by the time she's 30 (very naive, but I hope it works out for her). Jason said TWICE last night that if DeAnna accepted his proposal his family would be COMPLETE. Hmmmm....does that mean that he doesn't want anymore children? That bothered me immensely. I will give Jason credit though...when he first met DeAnna's family, he was able to impress them, and seemed to be very honest.

Jesse seemed to have matured a good bit throughout the process. A few weeks ago he commented to DeAnna that if she chose him she better be ready to get married because that's where he was in his life. I don't think she is the type of person who could be talked into anything she didn't want to do. She seems to be very strong, and I think she's at the same place in her life. The fact that they said on "After The Final Rose" that they have their wedding date set (May 9, 2009) pretty much indicates that.

I like DeAnna. She was honest with the guys, sometimes brutally so, but that's good. She even eliminated two guys at one time when she only needed to eliminate one. I really don't think that she led anyone on, at least not intentionally. She said what she thought.

I haven't watched The Bachelor/The Bachelorette for quite a while, and I found myself enjoying it this time around. Heck, I might even watch it again!

The Mole is another reality show I really enjoy. I watched it when it was on 6 or 7 years ago (two seasons), and then the two seasons of Celebrity Mole. This time around it's pretty good too. Of course I'm lousy at it. My top two choices for the mole have already been eliminated.

The only reality show I really liked was Average Joe. I think it was on about five years ago and I don't know if they still make it. The first season was fabulous and the second season was decent. I wonder if it is still on. I will have to check.

We watch Reality TV also. Even worse, we are sucking our children into the horror! lol

We watch The Next Food Network Star, America's Got Talent in the off season. Otherwise we are Survivor, the Amazing Race and American Idol.

Oh, and let's not EVEN get into Wife Swap and Supernanny.

Hanging my head in shame,

I watched the Bachelor/bachelorette too. I was hoping for the other guy--she sure led him on. If I think of turning on the TV, I watch it. I don't watch the Mole -- tried once awhile back. . . Oh yeah! I like wife swap and nanny. It's just a story, not reality. They can get pretty funny.
