Yesterday was the biggest day yet at SE and on the heels of that, we’ve got our first guest post. Jodie is about to tackle the question every one is asking - what the what is Britt still doing on this show? I’ll let her take it from here.
First of all, I want to thank Danielle for the wonderful opportunity to write the first guest blog on SE. I can’t wait to add this gem to my CV as soon as it is posted. I, much like Danielle, am enthralled by reality television. There are many reasons for this passion—but mostly it makes me feel better about myself. I have decided to guest blog on this site to ponder a very important question in regards to this season of the bachelor……
HOW THE HELL IS BRITT STILL ON THE SHOW?
You know you’ve thought it every episode. But for those of you who are not as attentive as me, Britt is the extremely quiet, extremely skinny food writer with absolute NO STYLE. And not a single story line either. Let’s be real—even my 14 year old niece (shout out Emily) knows heart sun glasses aren’t cool, especially for a 25 year old.
Britt has managed to beat out 24 women on this show (can that really be true?!)—despite her love of the double barrel curling iron (which she especially likes to use on her side bangs). Despite her heart hoop earrings. And most importantly despite the glittered ex-homecoming dresses she brought from high school.
We get it Britt. You were probably a big deal in high school—and got all the most popular guys. But just because you haven’t gained any weight since then, doesn’t mean you can take your entire high school wardrobe onto national television and relive the experience. It won’t work. It can’t work. But then why the hell has she made it so far? Not that I think Brad Womack is the ideal future husband—but I truly thought he had higher standards than this. Yes, I expect you to keep the crazies for the drama, and Emily because she is freaking Emily and even the jealous crazies on the show cant say anything bad about her. But if we can’t find a bachelor who is good looking, ripped and realizes 12 year old style is not becoming on a 25 year old semi-woman…..than I believe I’ve lost faith in ABC and their casting.
As far as a recap on Britt’s contribution to last night’s show. I’ve got nothing. She was a non-presence other than the flashes of hot mess fashion statements that she inevitably provides every episode that in turn provides me with copious amounts of SE. But alas– here’s to another episode of childish get-ups and virtually no story line to speak of Britt. Your 15 minutes of fame have stretched 6 episodes longer than anyone expected.
