Faces of rejected bachelorettes
No, Faces of Rejected Bachelorettes is not an antonomasia for the upcoming rom com BACHELORETTE starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan (Party Down crush!) and premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Instead, FoRB is actually devoted to one of my shameful, guilty pleasures: Hi, my name is Matt and I’m addicted to the mainstream pop culture television phenomenon The Bachelor, which has had a rousing start to its new season. It’s not a show that you find people in bars in Williamsburg (or Park City for that matter) talking about but man, are people obsessed with this reality TV show (now in its 16th season!). In fact, it’s exactly the type of show that Casey Klein would absolutely hate. Like I said, I feel shameful and guilty about enjoying it so much. At FoRB however, you can enjoy the schadenfreude quality of the show without wasting an hour of your precious time. This genius Tumblr is devoted to the look of rejection on the women that are not selected by the bachelor (this season: Ben, a winemaker from San Francisco) during the rose ceremony (don’t ask) to go on to the next round.
Also, apropos of nothing: To my roommate who informed me this past weekend that work was sending him to this year’s Sundance Film Festival, I say to you out of pure jealousy: I HATE YOU! For those of us who won’t be able to attend the festival, check in here to enjoy the festival vicariously.
