IN DEFENSE OF CHAD 📂
Villain music can really ruin a man | @lexie_elyse asked for this & I realize it's no longer relevant but also I still stand by this unpopular opinion
- •To start, I'm not saying Chad is the best dude on the Bachelorette right nowHe's definitely bought into a stereotypical idea of masculinity that thinks men should be strong & angry, exclusively. Kind of a dick. But does that make him a BAD DUDE??? I am going to argue no.
- •I think Chad is one of the most authentic guys to be on the BacheloretteYou can argue that he is contrived, but I think it's because he has SO bought into making himself a man's man. I think he has truly become that stereotype. He isn't trying to make America believe he's a tool; he is living his tool prime.
- •BEING ON THE BACHELORETTE HAS TO BE ONE OF THE WEIRDEST FUCKING EXPERIENCES ON THIS PLANET"Reality" tv still makes the audience have a HUGE suspension of reality. Someone on the show is: being followed around by cameras ALL DAY LONG, roommates with 20 other people trying to date their romantic interest, suddenly unemployed, & being interviewed/prodded/ handled by producers 24/7. Editing may make it seem "natural", but the entire reality is completely contrived.
- •"Forgive me if I'm not going to be fake. I'm not an actor."The motto
- •"You've gone a full LIFE without seeing JoJo. You can't wait a couple... like, a day? You can chill. She'll be here. She's not gonna disappear. She's not going to get on a jet and fly away to Malaysia."👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 TELL EM CHAD. All these bozos on the edge of tears because they didn't get a date card with a STRANGER. Fake emotion.
- •"I always warn girls, I always say: stay away from the nice guys. It's the nice guys who are actually the assholes"Okay he is not eloquent, but that's not what I am arguing. He's just trying to say that strangers should be a little strange & guys who come on too friendly aren't being authentic! 100% on brand.
- •"Ya'll don't know her yet, you can't be in love with her."Calling the dudes out on their bullshit 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 you are going over the top for a good sound bite
- •"I don't want to go with 12 guys. That's too many guys."GOD FORBID HE EXPRESS FOR HALF A SECOND HOW WEIRD THE GROUP DATE PREMISE IS
- •"Milk's delicious"Very true, it is.
