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
  1. To start, I'm not saying Chad is the best dude on the Bachelorette right now
    He'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.
  2. I think Chad is one of the most authentic guys to be on the Bachelorette
    You 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.
  3. 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.
  4. "Forgive me if I'm not going to be fake. I'm not an actor."
    The motto
  5. "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.
  6. "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.
  7. "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
  8. "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
  9. "Milk's delicious"
    Very true, it is.
