I will throw up

Greatly disgusted and massively disappointed in this show - The Bachelorette fails to teach good morals or realistic standards. Unless you want your child to have a false mindset of a relationship, and to be exposed to adult content, then flee from this show. The storyline itself lacks respect - it is not hard to fall in love when placed around a group of handsome men, flown throughout the world to have sex in the most carefree locations, and given a hearty budget to work with. The show is over-glorified and if on the hunt for a show with good/pure intentions and standards, the opposite of the bachelorette is what you need to be searching for. It does not honor Christ in all that it encompasses, and for these reasons - I rate this show this lowly.

Not about finding love

The first several years of the show were fun, even endearing. The gowns and fashions were beautiful and the personalities and professions were varied and interesting. Now it is nothing but a show about sex, akward at best, disgusting at times, and half the contenders are unemployed. Everything is now focused on the sexual chemistry and how quickly the down your throat French kissing can start.
