Bachelor in Paradise had its finale last night. Someone got dumped, some couples were still together…blah, blah, blah.
Look, there is nothing I like more than a good, addictive, trashy dating reality show, and yet, I’ve tried to watch every single iteration in the Bachelor Nation franchise, and it’s just so boring. My friends don’t get it, they begrudgingly watch every new episode that comes out, and hate themselves for doing so. They can’t understand how these shows have no sway for me, but friends, I’ve been inoculated against the entire Bachelor franchise, because nothing on it can ever compare to season three of Rock of Love—the dating show that revolved around Brett Michaels’ half-assed attempt to
get laid find love.
Can you compare this
Of course not! It doesn’t even come close!
How can the previous Bachelor leaving his fiancée for the runner up even come close to contestant Marcia puking up a bunch of Doritos and tequila, and then immediately making out with Brett Michaels (with a damn Dorito in her hand) in front of everyone?
Or a contestant having to stop a challenge because she thought she popped her breast implant when she fell on the ice?! It’s television gold.
Rock of Love got rid of the pesky idea that contestants are actually there to find love, and instead reveled in the glorious beauty that happens when you get a bunch of trashy women together on a bus, and supply them with free alcohol.
Magic happens, friends.
So if you’re part of the Bachelor Nation, and can think of a comparable clip that compares to Rock of Love, I’m all ears. It’s been 10 years since this gorgeous show graced our screens, and I still haven’t been able to fill its void.
For the rest of you, you’re welcome. You’ve now been introduced to the greatest reality show of all time, and as a result, nothing else will ever compare. Not even The Bachelor.
