Fall TV Preview: The Bachelor Rome

The Bachelor is back. Again. The ninth season premieres tonight at 9/8c on ABC. Nine seasons and we get angry at ourselves each one for getting sucked in to such a ridiculous show. Luckily we barely tuned in last season but we know we have to give the premiere a shot. We're just hoping we don't waste over 15 hours of our life we will never get back on this show anymore.

However, for those of you who can't quit The Bachelor. Here's the latest on the new season. This time the show takes place in Rome and the Bachelor is a real Italian Prince! How is that for a plot twist? His name is Prince Lorenzo Borghese, a 33 year old cosmetics entrepreneur who has actually lived in the U.S. since he was 5. His grandmother Princess Marcella Borghese started a line of high-end cosmetics that was eventually purchased by Revlon. Following in his grandmother's footsteps, Prince Lorenzo started a line of high-end bath and body products for pets, called Royal Treatment Pet Spa.

A Prince? Could this mean there will really be a fairy tale ending? OK, we admit, now we are intrigued. Let's hope the Bachelorettes are a fun group. The best part is usually all the cattiness among the ladies.

I went to high school and jr high with the Prince Lorenzo in NEW JERSEY (Millburn High '91). He's a moron with no personality. If you watch the show knowing ahead of time that he is a moron with no personality - it will be blantantly obvious that what I'm saying is true. He did take Italian in High School - but you can see it didn't stick. By the way, Fordham is a great school for smart people - but anyone who has filthy rich parents can get whatever they want - even a degree. Rollins College should be a tip off!

My favorite radio station had a blurb of one of the girls, Erin or Erica or something like that, talking about how they were going to a ball & they all had to dress up like their fave Disney character. This girl says, "I'm going as Belle from Beauty & The Beast because she was brought up in a rich home & she only wanted to get out of the water and walk on land." DUHHHHHH........

and contrary to popular belief, not everyone who dresses well and has feathered hair and a career is gay. This guy doesn't ping my gaydar at all, and living in the East Village, my gaydar is quite well tuned.

I think it's so fake, how do you cry and say you love one person that you have met in a couple of days, when you are among 20 other people?..come on!

I much preferred the Joe Millionaire one! lol Watch all the gold diggers scratch each others eyes out for nothing! But even I only watched the first one. "Like MySpace, only more arrogant"

I'll admit it, I watched the very first season of this show but I think it should end now because these people are so desperate for fame, not love by this show.
