I don’t watch much TV and haven’t watched reality TV in years. However, I do try to stay informed and up-to-date with the happenings in the reality and sitcom TV world. The Bachelorette’s most recent announcement made me feel compelled to talk about it.

Starting in the next season, The Bachelorette, will have two women on the show. Everything will begin as normal – except when the men get out of the limos to see the women they have to vote which woman will stay on as the next Bachelorette.


It’s not often I take a stance on something like this, but my initial thoughts about this was how degrading that must feel to the one not selected.  It’s one thing to enter to be a contestant on the show and to find out privately you didn’t make it – but to make that something televised seems pointless.

I get that The Bachelorette’s ratings have been at an all-time low in the past couple of seasons, so they’re probably trying to reinvent the wheel. Will making this sort of change do anything for ratings? It might that first episode, but I don’t think it has the stamina to keep the ratings up consistently throughout the next season.

Will making a drama over ‪#‎TeamBritt or ‪#‎TeamKaitlyn help with the ratings?
