Okay, calm down everybody.
'The Bachelor' is coming to Australia.
Yes, one of the most successful US TV franchises is heading down under and YOU have the chance to be a part of it, if you're that way inclined. You know, single, okay with sharing your man with other women, getting in a bikini and showing off your body, as is customary on this dating show.
This show is... my ultimate guilty viewing pleasure.
Yes. Really. It's one of my many. Read about all of them here. And it has been parodied.
If you'd like to be a part of the show - both men and women - click here.
If you're not familiar with the phenomenon, here's some video highlights.
Oh, the final rose ceremony! Who will be elated... and who will be devo'ed:
Ohhh, the meeting of the families (awkward TV central):
Inappropriate PDAs for the world to see (and yet, we are glued):
Oh yeah... the possible bad break up. On TV. Awkies.
But then, we've had marriages and babies...
