tennisgurl March 2, 2021 Share March 2, 2021 For such a wild season, this was a ridiculously boring WTA. I cant even be mad that I missed watching live, and that's most of the reason I watch this show! You could tell all of the women were on their best behavior, a lot of them (especially Victoria and the mean girls) have gotten a lot of blowback on social media for their shitty behavior so they were really trying to come off better, but it ended up making everything feel boring and stilted. A lot of awkward half assed apologizes, excuse making, and Bachelorette auditions. Anna of all people probably had the best apology, she actually took some personal responsibility which is more than most of them did, although I crack up every time she talks about what a "small town" Chicago is. Like @LBS so eloquently stated, the Chicago that seems to live in, the tiny bubble of the young, rich, and beautiful, is a small town, but Chicago itself certainly isn't. As much as the women tried to sound more polite, the means girls really seemed more pissed off at Katie for bringing their crap to light than at any of the people who were actually being crappy to each other. They seem to see being called out for their bullying as being bullied, and that anyone trying to stop drama is just causing by trying to deal with it. While I hate seeing anyone ganged up on, especially online, it seems like they can dish it out but they cant take it. Even while she was trying to be more dignified (and she finally looked halfway decent) Victoria still seems like a truly horrible black hole of a person. She seems actually unbalanced sometimes, and if she is then I feel bad for her, but she mostly just seems like an immature mean girl with delusions of grandeur. She cant even pull off queen bitch because she absolutely reeks of desperation and messiness, she fully seems like she lives on another planet, and that planet is super obnoxious. The perfect storm of dumb, mean, and trashy. She is literally the worst person this show has had in ages. Katie, Serena, and Abigail all seemed to be giving their Bachelorette auditions, as they all seemed to be liked by fans. I like Katie and Serena, but I think Abigail has the best shot of the women who are not still in the running. She's likable, pretty, seems to have a pretty good head on her shoulders, has a sufficiently tragic backstory, and the franchise is clearly looking to increase its diversity so having a deaf mixed race Bachelorette would be appealing to them. I thought her talking about feeling like she feels caught in the middle between the hearing and deaf communities was the most interesting conversation of the night, I think she would do a good job. Of course, its easy to look good this season, all you have to do is not call any of your fellow contestants a ho or call them a hooker for a few episodes. There are so many dates we never saw, its like there was a whole different show going on that we never got to see. Everything was so consumed with insufferable drama and Most Obvious Plant Ever Queen Victoria that we missed all of the things that this show is actually supposed to be about. We spent so much time fighting that I feel like we hardly even know most of the women, especially ones who weren't bullying the other women and hogging screen time. Its been a problem with this franchise for awhile, but this season was especially bad. They spend so much time on their contrived drama and asshole antics that we hardly get to see most of the people that could actually win, and it overwhelms the actual romance that this show is supposed to be about. 2 16 Link to comment
