6 Reasons Why This Is The Worst Bachelorette Season
Wenner Media

Upon tuning in to this season of the Bachelorette, I had high expectations. How could I not? With Jojo as the bachelorette, it seemed all too promising. She’s gorgeous, she’s down-to-earth, what’s not to love? However, now that we’ve made it to hometowns, I can’t help but feel like I’ve been cheated. Bachelorette Season 8 had so much potential. But it’s clear now that this season is shaping out to be a total dud, and here’s why:

1. It’s way too predictable.

From the first episode, we all knew it would come down to Jordan and Luke. These producers need to work on coming up with better surprises in the season.

2. It was centered around one person: Chad.

Let’s face it- the majority of this season revolved around Chad and his own personal drama. It was basically Chad’s show. And, now that he’s gone, there is no drama. We don’t watch this show because we actually care about these people. We watch this show for the mindless entertainment. We want juicy plot twists. We want guys fighting over Jojo. This season is a snore fest.

3. It’s dramatic in all the wrong ways.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F12%2F6360388867891224391397226538_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=970&h=12f86d39129874f92f96785966cfacb60f3f666fa03055505598842c11611e68&size=980x&c=2546862042 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F12%252F6360388867891224391397226538_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D970%26h%3D12f86d39129874f92f96785966cfacb60f3f666fa03055505598842c11611e68%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2546862042%22%7D" expand=1]

Like I said, we want cliffhangers. We want rose ceremonies that have us on the edge of our seats. I don’t know about you, but I’m sort of over listening to the sound of Jojo crying at the end of every single episode.

4. The one-on-one dates suck.

I think the producers pretty much gave up on putting any effort at all into these one-on-one dates. If you watched this past week, you remember Alex and Jojo’s first and last one-on-one. They went to a farm, dressed up in trendy outfits and laid down in the grass with horses. That was the date. Literally, that’s it. WHERE is the romance in that? Forget romance, where is the fun in that!?

5. Jojo lost her likability.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F12%2F636038888404175373-1531052368_11266615.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=374&h=56bf1be04a0a69a3aadd87996ba2300c32c8f569f33942e90c5c1fa476fc78a4&size=980x&c=4231457387 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F12%252F636038888404175373-1531052368_11266615.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D374%26h%3D56bf1be04a0a69a3aadd87996ba2300c32c8f569f33942e90c5c1fa476fc78a4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4231457387%22%7D" expand=1]

At the beginning of the season, I could not wait to see how Jojo would fare with being the new Bachelorette. It was hard not to love her. But at this point in the season, I feel like she lost her Jojo mojo. If she asks one more time how the contestants are “feeling,” I might just lose it. To me it just seems like Jojo is after one thing and one thing only and that’s just a good looking guy to hook up with. She’s not looking for her husband.

6. Jojo is making all the wrong choices.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F12%2F6360388886695847031977377079_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=269&h=728c3b37e8b08c43e5a6efc931af6663f9dff30b20f3c8dab1f212e90d29f64c&size=980x&c=3357101087 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F12%252F6360388886695847031977377079_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D269%26h%3D728c3b37e8b08c43e5a6efc931af6663f9dff30b20f3c8dab1f212e90d29f64c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3357101087%22%7D" expand=1]

As previously mentioned, it doesn’t seem like Jojo is taking this whole experience seriously. If Jojo was truly looking for her husband, she wouldn’t have kept Chad around for so long. She wouldn’t have kept Chase over James T. She’s after the hotness rather than the heart. To each is own, but if I were her, my decisions would be completely different.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
