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.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

5 Iconic Quotes From 'Full House'

You got it dude!


I remember watching Full House every single day before I would go to school, when I was in elementary school. This was my go-to show and it is still one of my absolute favorites. Sure, it got a bit cheesy at times, but I still love it.

In honor of this iconic show, here are five of my favorite "Full House" quotes and catch phrases.

"You got it dude!" - Michelle

This has to be one of the most memorable lines from the show. Even sitting here thinking about it right now, I can pcture little Michelle giving a thumbs up while saying it with a huge smile on her face.

"Clean is good, and dirt is bad" - Danny

Danny used to be one of my least favorite characters, but now he is easily one of my favorites. He's hilarious, quirky, and usually straight to the point. Mr.Tanner is very underrated, I said what I said!

"Have mercy!" - Jesse

Who doesn't love a little Uncle Jesse in their life? Even people who aren't really fans of the show know how legendary he is. It has to have something to do with how good looking and amazing John Stamos is, I'm sure. But Uncle Jesse saying "have mercy" made the show at least fourteen times better.

"How rude!" - Stephanie

A very young Stephanie Tanner confidently saying "how rude" is hilarious, cute, and iconic. I think this has to be one of the most memorable lines from the show. Heck, even Jodie Sweetin who played Stephanie has the quote in her Instagram bio.

"Cut! It! Out!" - Joey

Joey Gladstone is pretty much synonymous with "cut it out" at this point, let's be honest. I can't even tell you how many times I say this in my own life now, all because of this show.

Lori Loughlin drama aside, these quotes and catch phrases have stayed with me for pretty much all of my life. This is one of those shows I can watch and re-watch over and over again and never get sick of it. I'm still a little bit upset there is no Michelle on the Netflix reboot of Fuller House, but it's okay. I won't be bitter... Anyway, I'm gonna go listen to "Everywhere You Look", the Full House theme song.
