No, I did not watch three hours of that. I just couldn't. I don't get why Nick is the Bachelor. He's like a lot of the guys in Silicon Valley and to be honest, I don't see what's worth fighting for in him. He's boring as heck. He doesn't seem commitment-focused and he invites a lot of drama into his life. Who needs more drama?
Nick and Vanessa seem miserable. But worse than that? They seem happy to be miserable. Like Eeyore has found a mate.
When Vanessa said the word "difficult" about 40 times, I was thinking, girl, this is the honeymoon period. What's up? Raven handled herself so well, and I'm so happy she didn't end up with Nick. She's a sparkly girl and she needs someone who will let her sparkle, not dull her. Truthfully, I would have liked to have seen Raven as the next Bachelorette, but hopefully, she'll find herself a real cowboy back home. It was hard to watch her get dumped because it reminds you how unfair love is. Love makes up its own mind, and it isn't always the cleverest choice. I wasn't happy to hear she was going on the "Bachelor in Paradise" -- she'd do better back home.
I think Nick is a difficult one to get close to, so I'd be surprised if he made it down the aisle, but we shall see. First, we'll catch him doing the "white boy dance" on "Dancing with the Stars." Who thought that was a good idea?
I like Rachel, but she seems too smart to be "The Bachelorette" but we shall see. What did you think of the finale? I did love Neil Lane's ring. Here's a link if you didn't see it. Neil may be getting this one back. Time will tell. http://people.com/style/bachelor-finale-nick-viall-engagement-ring-vanessa-grimaldi/
