For us, the best part about Mondays is our girls' night viewing party for The Bachelor. But sometimes we find ourselves at home for the show, competing with our significant other for the TV (hello, Monday night football). So instead of fighting your man for tube time, here's how to get him hooked on the show!
- Bribe him with food: If you're enjoying yummy homemade snacks and an alcoholic beverage while watching the reality dating show, he's sure to join you on the couch for at least a little bit. And once he gets a taste of the guilty pleasure, he won't be able to turn back!
- Tease the girl-on-girl action: Show him the clip from Ben F's Bachelor premiere last week of two of the contestants cuddling, and he may be curious enough to start watching! Not to mention, you're basically asking him to ogle a ton of hot girls.
- Give him a distraction: The only way I kept my SO seated beside me during the show was by getting him a handheld gaming device. Your man may be entertained by video games, his iPhone, or his laptop, but he'll be secretly watching the show — trust me!
- Entice with the hilarious parts: With all the horrible pickup lines, delusional contestants, and dating faux parts, The Bachelor is full of the humorous parts of single life that he may miss now that's dating you. Show him some of the best, worst moments to get him laughing along with you on Mondays.
