The Bachelor season finale happened this week, and while I have a strict policy never to watch this show I did read on ABCNews.com that Jake proposed to Vienna. This got me thinking. In the 14 seasons of The Bachelor a significant number have proposed, but only 1 has actually made it down the aisle. In fact a little research revealed that in the 14 seasons they’ve been on the air proposals vs. non-proposals are split exactly even, 7 for 7. Most couples who did become engaged were decoupled before the final episodes aired.
Now I’ve been a single woman, given it was many, many years ago, but I had 2 serious relationships before meeting and marrying the Frog. That means my odds simply dating like a regular person were way better than anything a woman is going to find on reality television. 1 in 14 ladies. Think about it. Do you really want to marry or are you just in it for that 15 minutes of fame?
