PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Why do you watch?"
Me? It is purely for entertainment. Do I really care what happens in real life with these people? Heck no!!! I watch because I find it amusing, I find it fasinating(sp) that people will actually put their lives on tv for all to see.

It amazes me all the people that became so upset because Jen said no to JP and then dumped Jerry LIVE on tv. BFD!! If these reality tv shows are so upsetting or if you really beleive in them then I feel for you. Try watching with an open mind, it is put on there for entertainment purposes only. Don't get all Jen is a beyotch on us, just don't watch!

1. "RE: Why do you watch?"
I watch for the entertainment purposes too, but I must admit that I get too wrapped up at times in the happily ever after ending. BUT I also watch so I can bash them and make fun of them.... shame on me, but right now I feel like Jen is beyotch But I will move on and someone else will be a beyotch next season

2. "RE: Why do you watch?"
Agree, but I still think Jen is a tool.

I don't normally do the "Batches." I happened to have it on this channel on the first night, and then I was hooked. As an RTV addict, I should know better. I'm not watching the next one, only because I think it sucks, not because of the outcome of this one.

I watch for entertainment, but like many, I do get caught up in the fairy tale and hope for a happy ending. I get more irritated at the storyline and how it ends (especially in Jen's case), gripe about it and then tune in next round. It amazes me that these folks are on TV..and the things they will do....

Everyone is different...and we have a right to be disgusted that we were "PUNKED" by ABC..... It's not that I care...it's the freaking principle of the whole thing...... she never had any intention of picking a guy and it became blatantly obvious as time passed. It may be for "entertainment purposes only" but let's see how "entertaining" ABC thinks it is when the ratings go down the tube! I am done with Bachelor series!

See this is kinda what I mean, obviously you do care or you wouldn't be so put out by this. Why are you so "I am done with the Bachelor series"? It's a show, how does it hurt you that she dumped Jerry? Did you have an interest in if she said yes or not? I realize you watched it, well so did I but I am not mad, bid deal, she dumped him. I just don't see why everyone gets so mad about this. It's a dang show, do you really think the majority of these will work out? Heck no. Why can't people just watch and laugh at how stupid these peeps are, they make themselves look like idiots, enjoy their stupidity.

I am trying really, really hard to understand what upsets people so...

6. "RE: Why do you watch?"
If I may step in....

I think it's kind of like a soap opera or other long running series. You invest time into watching, you begin to "care" about what happens to or with the characters and when they die, you are a bit sad, when they do something stupid, you get mad at them, etc.

Does that make any sense?

7. "RE: Why do you watch?"
Yeah that makes sense, I liked Friends and they are no more but I know it's not real and can draw the line between sane and insane behavior..

Don't get me wrong I love bashing, when Kirsten was vying for Andrew I bashed her like crazy, but I never said I would never watch again if he picked her.

I watch for the snark. Oh, and for the potential meltdowns and implosions. After summarizing such gems as For Love or Money, and Forever Eden, I'm pretty skeptical you can find twue wuv on a reality show. Bring on the Charlie season. It looks skankalicious.

10. "RE: Why do you watch?"
I watch because it makes me feel better about myself. These shows remind me that I am not the most delusional person on earth, nor the most desperate attention whore. Seeing these people play their sick little games makes me look pretty normal by comparison.
