    Were you you just in a bad mood last night?
    I'm a bit of a hard ****, I wasn't in a bad mood, she put herself in that situation, she has watched the show before. She knows that unless you're the 1 in 25 winner that what ever he tells you are likely lies as he MUST lead women on. So she put herself in the situation where she knew what could happen but did it anyway.

    So yes I can feel empathy and compassion for the sad, a friend or family (no matter whether it was a result of their own actions or not) yes, a homeless person, yes, a victim of crime yes! But a person who goes on national TV to find love knowing this could have happened, no sorry.

    This is what happens when Australia takes an American show and makes a carbon copy for a vastly different audience.
    They would have done much better to tailor it to the Aussie psyche.
    Australiains aren't as cut throat and into one upmanship as the Americans.

    I would do away with home town visits, go from final three to one and then do the 'meet the parents' after his decision was made.
    Thats just for the final weeks, the all along they should really look over how they make the girls compete too.

    Anyway, obviously after three seasons there's something in it people like, between the contestants and viewers. It just needs a more personal Aussie touch and it could be great.
    I know we in BH aren't dumb (BTW both my posts weren't aimed at people on here - it was all the social media where people were ragey about it, I'm thinking come on! Really!? It's the bachelor!)

    Things like what I pulled out of that blog piece was highlighting why I feel so strongly about it. I actually cannot believe people (IRL) watch that show hoping to see a magical romance and a special relationship and awwww that's so beautiful!!! I just seriously don't get it. I thought we all loved to hate it!? No?

    I can understand why she may not have introduced Richie to her son yet. In her situation, I would probably want to wait until the secret is out and we've been able to test it out in the real world.

    The hatred is horrible!
    People seem to forget that it's all clever editing to make us think one way or another, and that we have no idea what the relationships are like behind the scenes.

    Even Sam Frost was having a go at Richie this morning for not picking Nikki, while she was interviewing the happy couple. That's just really rude.

    Nikki may have lost but the upside is she guy to look absolutely incredibly ahmaziiing in that red dress on national tv. One small win!
