Tonight is the first episode of season 17 of THE BACHELOR and I just couldn’t be more excited. It is by FAR my favorite of all my guilty pleasure.
Because I think the current Bachelor, Sean Lowe is absolutely precious
Because I generally feel The Bachelor is much more entertaining than The Bachelorette (the girls are just much funnier, IMO)
Because I love to see how Chris Harrison is Benjamin Button-ing (Seriously, Chris – who IS your dermatologist?)
But this year…mostly because I am competing in a Fantasy Bachelor League!
Last night, 3 of my girlfriends and I determined our rosters through a full-fledged blind draft of the 26 girls over delicious sushi at Sushi Nami Too and though I didn’t get any of my top picks (I had to choose 4th, boo.) I feel pretty solid about my roster.
Without any further ado, here are my 6 girls:
Sure, some of them have crazy eyes… but even if they turn out to be absolutely certifiable – they’re all doing just fine on the famous Hot/Crazy scale from How I Met Your Mother.
If you’d like to play along with the draft… you can earn or lose points these ways:
Episode # times each girl on your roster = points per girl (ie you have all six girls make it through the first rose ceremony in the first episode = 6 points)
First Impression rose = +10
If you have the recognized Villain of the season on your roster = +15 (to be determined collectively by the episode before hometown dates – think Courtney from Bachelor Ben’s season…)
Hometown date = +20
Overnight invite = +25
(accepting the “Fantasy Suite” = +5 extra)
Being selected for a 1 on 1 = +5
Being selected for a 2 on 1 = +2
If your girl WINS the 2 on 1 and the other girl is eliminated= +2
If Sean sends home outside of a rose ceremony or she goes home in an otherwise unorthodox way = -10
If the SHOW team sends your girl home = -20
Top 2 = +35
Proposal = +40
…and my personal favorite: ANY “wardrobe malfunctions” or inappropriate behavior which results in pixellation of any kind: +5 points!
Oh it is ON. I was already a serious fan…couple that love with my crazy competitive nature? I smell a new obsession.
May the best girls (and I mean Paige, Selma, Tierra, Kelly, Keriann, or Diana) WIN!
TONIGHT on ABC 8/7c
