TV Tonight: "The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman"

TV Tonight: "The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman"

"The Bachelor" has built a franchise on fairytale romances that seem too good to be true, but even so, new bachelor Andy Baldwin's resume seems a bit over the top. I mean, the guy is:

  • A Navy lieutenant
  • A doctor
  • A triathlete
  • A humanitarian who recently went on a mission to help Laotian villagers

Starting tonight, this classic all-American hero is looking for love on national television. Of course, there are 25 pre-selected pretty young bachelorettes ready to vie for his hand. And, apparently, he does find the love of his life in the end.

I've always thought there's something a little gross about this whole franchise, and at least one critic has said that despite Andy's impressive resume, he's a bit of a doofus. But if "The Bachelor" is going to be back, I'm glad it's in this more straightforward format rather than, say, another excessively contrived version with a prince. The show starts tonight at 9:45 p.m., right after "Dancing with the Stars." Check out the video preview at the show's official site and let me know what you think. Will you be watching?

I watched this show last night, dont know quite why. It was moderately entertaining.

This is the worst show...terrible premise and just awful in terms of people's real lives. But let's all admit--it's great tv. The kind that makes you feel really guilty for watching, but highly entertaining.

I hate the within the premise of the show is that all of the women are automatically in love with him and having their heart broken not be chosen and that his true love is in the twenty girls picked by casting people. I just don't get it at all.

He is hot but the whole The Bachelor series is old and fake. In the end, he and the woman he picks will break up.

"Lieutenant McDreamy"? I think not! Like Maggie Mae, I can't believe this show is still going.
