by Eden Godsoe, posted to TV, Movies & Music

It's fair to say I am obsessed with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette series. I've watched every show since the first Bachelor aired with Alex Michel. Here is my roundup of good reads, gossip and much more.

The Bachelor: Why Smart Women Watch (and Love) It | Huffington Post

Confession time: I watched "The Bachelor" ... and I liked it. I've...more

I am pretty open about watching (and loving) The Bachelor. Heck I even created this whole list of related good reads. I suppose it is partly the train wreck aspect since I can't stand Ben and most of the female contestants. I think it also helps me relax with mindless brain candy after a full day at the office and parenting two young children.

Love this comparison from @Mr_AndrewHunt. Personally I am not a fan of Ben's whole look.

Illicit Sex Tape of Courtney Robertson | The Examiner

I have a feeling more than a few of these Bachelor 2012 contestants have sex tapes or other dirty little secrets. How many are really looking for love on this show as opposed to getting exposure thinking it will catapult a career.

Direct link to the Shawntal's family-run mortuary business. I kinda think it's cool that she loves her job and didn't go on The Bachelor (both times) to try to advance her modeling or acting career.

Amanda Davis: Hmmm, I, like the other girls trying to earn Ben's love, felt very negatively about the arrival of Shawntal this past ep. But you're right, it is cool that she is proud of her job, even though most would feel it is creepsters.

Jenna has to be the craziest contestant yet. She describes herself as a freelance writer and cites this blog. It has so little traffic it cannot be analyzed on Compete. And love her description of herself as someone who "enjoys analyzing." What does that mean? Does she think it makes her sound smart?

Amanda Davis: She is totally cray cray... you know when they use your breakdown in promos before the season starts, you probably aren't the most stable.

The girls are crazier than ever as this recap points out. Ben does a good job juggling the craziness but so far he's a little bland and lacks charisma.

This 2011 round up of where all the former Bachelors have ended up is a little outdated since I know that Alex Michel was married in 2010. Nonetheless a fun read to see where your fave (or most hated) Bachelors ended up.

It's pretty tough to start a winery so we'll see if Evolve succeeds. As someone who is pretty into wines (at least I like to drink them!) I'd love to taste one of Ben's wines to see if he's the real deal.
