I am so grateful for this forum to be able to hear others thoughts and opinions on this show. I would never admit to anyone, in my real life, that I watch this garbage. lol
For the record, I think this show is fake, scripted, or at the very least producer manipulated. So I'm not watching with a romantic heart hoping that 2 people find true love. I'm not sure why I watch. Maybe just to snark and read other people's snark. lol
I think that in order to make it a little bit more authenitc, they need to cast people with a little more age and life experience. These people are so young. There is no way they are all ready for a life long commitment. In fact that is probably the last thing they would want. And I know, most are going on the show for exposure, the travel, the competition. But the premise of the show is to find true love, and have a proposal at the end. It would be more believable if it were people who actually might really be ready to settle down and start a family. I'm' not saying there is a definitive age for that to happen, but I just can't look at a room full of 20 somethings and think they are all itching to get to the alter.
I think some of the conversations and experiences might be more interesting with older people also. Hannah is a horrible lead, in my opinion. She has nothing interesting to say, and she couldn't express herself if she did. All they show are the same conversations about being real, opening up, blah blah blah, but we never see anyone actually do that.
I think it would be nice to have a lead that actually had some relationship experience and had a better idea what they want, other than they want someone to be 'real'. And in Hannah's case, be real, in how it pertains to her, in a way that is acceptable to her.
And as far as her being a Christian and Jesus still loving her, even though she's had sex , yes, I'm sure that is true. And I really don't care who she has sex with or how often. But, I think for most Christian denominations, sex is supposed to be an intimate act with a person to whom you are committed. If not marriage vows, a committed, monogamous relationship. I'm not sure what kind of religion she is a part of, where she seems to think it's all fine to bleep twice in a windmill and have 4 fantasy suite dates, which i assume she will bleep them all , since she is ok with bleeping twice in a windmill.
And again, I'm not judging her. I don't care what she does , but she's kind of acting like it doesn't really apply to her in this situation. It's kind of like how she doesn't pay attention to the rules of the bachelor, by skipping cocktail parties and crying for a second rose. But, I'm sure the producers are fine or even encouraging this type of thing, for drama and 'first time ever's.
Thank you for a place to voice my thoughts on this horrid show. That I watch every stupid week.
