I have not seen any episodes of the TV series The Bachelor but have seen clips and read enough news items to know that it is a show where multiple women compete to gain the affection of a man, with successive women being eliminated until just one remains, who becomes his fiancee. It all seems rather degrading to me but people seem to be willing to be embarrassed just for the chance to be on TV. Like all so-called reality shows, it is contrived and partially scripted, but it seems be very popular.
The show originated in 2002 sand its success has (of course) spawned multiple variations and latest known as The Golden Bachelor makes the participants all older people, with multiple women aged 60 or more competing to ‘win’ a 71-year old man.
Lewis Black is not impressed and lets loose with one of his typical rants.
