This Season Of 'The Bachelorette' Was A Disappointment

This Season Of 'The Bachelorette' Was A Disappointment

This season was just a mess.


This week is the season finale of "The Bachelorette." The big question, Garrett or Blake? At the beginning of each season the host, Chris Harrison, promised that it would be the most dramatic season yet. However, it has been far from that.

Each season of this show is usually riddled with stupid antics and a lot of tears. The guys or girls are usually caught in some sort of scandal that is then blown out of proportion. There is always a huge fight and then someone tattles to the Bachelor/Bachelorette. It's always something interesting each season.

This season had the usual fights, the dramatic two on one date, and a best friend backstabbing plot twist. It just didn't have the same appeals as it usually does. Sure, it was dramatic for TV, but most seasons I'm glued to my TV waiting to see what happens next.

Even with Becca's friend admitting she still had feelings for one of the contenders and the drama that Jordan, the model, caused everything felt more forced than normal. The producers of the show no doubt used every little thing to their advantage, but there was no "oh my god" drama.

In past seasons there has been everything from one of the contestants literally fighting everybody in the house, to a breakup on national TV when the Bachelor decided to choose another girl. This season started off with a fight over a picture frame, and it only went downhill from there.

That is the stuff I live for when watching these shows. I don't get too excited when I see a preview that one of the guys may have hit another guy. Only to later find out he just fell out of his bunk bed.

Even the Men Tell All wasn't as interesting as it once was. Sure, they were throwing insults at each other, but nobody was truly in the hot seat this time. The most interesting part was the bloopers during the last five minutes of the episode.

There wasn't even a true "villain" during this season. It just sort of jumped around each week based on what storyline was being told. I wasn't sitting at home yelling at the TV and hoping that Becca would send a certain guy home.

It also became painfully obvious who Becca would have as her last two men. She clicked naturally with them and has even admitted to being in love with one of them. It takes the fun out of the season when you know how it will all end.

Each summer and winter I get so excited for the new season. It's my guilty pleasure on Monday nights. However, this season was less than expected. It was disappointing, and at some points, I didn't even watch.

Maybe the season finale will hold some sort of drama. Because we all know that it lacked this season.

We're All Bad People According To 'The Good Place'

Moral desert isn't going to save your soul if you're a dink.


You're on a runaway trolley with no brakes barreling toward 5 people on the tracks. You have a lever in front of you that controls a switch. If you pull the lever, then the tracks will switch you onto a track with only 1 person on the tracks. Do you kill 1 to save the many? Well, what if it's your best friend on the tracks. Do you kill your best friend for 5 strangers or do you say, 'fuck it' and save your best friend?

What if it was your mom? Your significant other? Your child? What do you do?

"The Trolley Problem" is a popular problem in ethics that brings up a moral quandary. All of our actions have some sort of consequence, but what is the reason for our actions? Are we capable of making an ethical decision on who lives and who dies?

Do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one?

'The Good Place' is an NBC fantasy comedy which tackles the issue of moral dilemmas through a variety of conversations and odd scenarios which challenge the show's characters. A question that is tackled often by the show is: what makes a person good?

Are they good because of things they've done such as charities or fundraisers? Are they good because they rallied for environmental issues? Or are they good because they chose to drink soy milk over almond?

No. At its core, a good person could be described simply as someone who does good things without moral desert. Moral desert refers to deserving fair treatment because you have done something 'good'. For instance, if you paid for someone's coffee in a drive-thru, you expect something 'good' to happen to you in return. Many refer to the moral desert as 'good karma' or assume the universe is watching out for them.

Characters in 'The Good Place' assume that they are good people because they've given back to others during their life. These characters don't consider that their moral reasoning is skewed and focuses more on self-satisfaction rather than help for the benefit of others.

Now, recount every good thing you've done in your life- every time you've donated money, helped a stranger, been kind just because, or a number of other examples. Think, why did you do it? Was it because you knew someone was watching? Was it because you were told to be someone else?

Or were you just doing it because you knew it was the right thing to do?

We are all capable of being good people. But, just like the people in the show, we struggle with figuring out what is morally right and what our moral obligations are. We want to be able to not only satisfy the needs of everyone but the needs of ourselves. It's human nature to be selfish and care more about ourselves than other, but does that make us right to do so? What do we owe each other?

I believe we are capable of sacrificing some of our time and energy to help others without self-satisfaction. There's good in being, well, good without the reward. You don't need a shiny trophy that says, “hey I'm a great person!" to prove how good you are. Instead, replace it with the feeling of fulfillment that you've made a difference- no matter how big or small.
