Why Do I Love the Bachelorette So Much?

I know I shouldn't - it's fake and inane and all the people are overly good looking - but I dooooo.
  1. I imagine it's because it's aspirational.
    Would I love it as much if I had already found the love of my life? I wonder.
  2. Who wouldn't want basically a harem of men for a short period of time?
  3. I think the people are mostly genuine.
    Is that so ridiculous? I hope not. At least they're more genuine than other reality shows, right? Please no one shatter my illusions.
  4. It's a family tradition.
    My mom and I watched the first one back in the day, so I think that justifies me continuing to watch it more than 10 years later.
  5. Ok now Kaitlyn, you're awesome, but don't screw it up.
