  1. So they are all accomplished, beautiful women over 60 wanting to make fools of themselves on national TV? I can’t understand why


  2. Who is the host? I used to love all of the Bachelor franchise shows. Then they started getting woke and doing weird things like having two bachelorettes and my watching dwindled. But when they fired Chris I stopped watching completely. This is the first time I have been tempted to watch in years.
