just Bachelorette stuff

Facebook is suggesting i follow Kylie Jenner's page. i am in the understanding that she is one of the Kardashians. although i am not sure cos then why the F is her surname 'Jenner'. not that all kids need to have the same surname but they usually do...  but i dont really care.

so this season of Bachelorette is disappointing me a bit. i know Jojo will pick the hot player, and i think it will go down in flames. i do understand its like a game, most people want to start a career and become a minor celebrity, its just a theatre that is played, but im certain some people have some genuine feelings too. viewers, including me, are upset she dropped Luke. i mean, yeah, he seemed great but i guess she had her reasons. maybe its that he lives in the countryside, maybe the producers told her that if she isnt sure she wants him, to drop him now, so they can start grooming him to be the next Bachelor. i certainly hope its Luke rather than Chase...  i dont think they'll pick the 2nd runner up 2 times in a row (=Robbie, i assume). actually my preference would be to find a new face to star as Bachelor, but its already become a standard to pick someone from within the francise, i guess i just have to accept it. meanwhile, today i will watch the Men Tell All episode, go see Tarzan with doctor hopefully. so im getting an extra dose of abs and testosterone in hollywood packaging.

last night i browsed Bachelor/ette related books at Amazon. there are a few books written by past contestants. I read one a couple months ago, by Courtney Robertson, it was okay. now i noticed 2 of the books (by Sean and Emily) are published by HarperCollins Christian Publishing. umm what? okay Sean is a born again Christian, and the book apparently really underlines that, but then i read the summary of Emily's book and it goes: 
"Overcome with embarrassment following her nationally televised failures at romance, Emily finally committed her heart to the only one she knew would never leave her empty and alone. Abandoning her desire to be chosen by men and finding peace in the fact that she was already chosen by God, Emily found the joy she had been looking for in serving God."
that just makes me throw up in my mouth a little :/ i have the same reaction to religion as some do for reality tv :D her book has received good reviews but inserting god here and there really turns me off. so im not sure i can read either of these. also, they are still too expensive (9-17 usd) to be worth it, light entertainment should be cheap...   Andi's book has received scathing reviews. she was an interesting Bachelorette, but apparently her book is just a bitter hate fest with generic to bad advice (she recommends 'hate sex with ex'), and she calls herself a feminist :(

oh and the 4th season of Married at First Sight is starting! woohoo! a bit less of a game, more reality.
