I did watch last night’s “Sean Tells All” episode of The Bachelor. I watched. I had my laptop open, with an empty Word Doc waiting to be filled with a snarky blog post. But what was there to say? Nothing.
The episode was as dull and vanilla as Sean has been portrayed all season. The sad thing is, rare moments of actual reality suggest that he might actually be a pretty funny guy. Fun to be around, even. But as always, The Bachelor is more intent on crafting a ludicrous fairy tale than actual displaying the human moments that come across as much more endearing to me.
Sean and Selma’s ridiculous “eyelash kisses” would have been a funny thing to see. His brownie banter with Lesley was filled with genuine laughter that is all too rare on this show.
As for the actual meat of the episode, Sean revealed very little. Of course he was going to feel like a fool after witnessing the way Tierra acted around the other women. But hearing Sean say “Tierra never should have come on the show” when we all know the producers intentionally cast women like Tierra just wasn’t cutting it in terms of watchable TV. Last night’s episode was a dud. What did you guys think?
