“The Bachelorette” Opens to Low Numbers as “Winner” Revealed on Blog with Questionable Background




Last night’s premiere of “The Bachelorette” got very low ratings, the lowest ever in the franchise history– not quite 6 million viewers tuned in to see Becca, from the last season of “The Bachelor”– entertain 28 morons.

The worst part is that Reality Steve, the infamous blogger, and TMZ, have each revealed the man to whom Becca becomes engaged on the final episode, weeks from now.

Oh wait, that’s not the worst part. It turns out this guy, named Garrett, has mocked feminists, as well as the Parkland survivors on his Instagram account. The account has since been removed, but of course not before it was copied by a number of people on the web including a former “Bachelor” female contestant.

On top of that, I can tell you the original Instagram account belonging to Garrett promoted a gun store that sold semi-automatic rifles.

Earlier last night, when I saw Garrett’s entrance, I Tweeted that he was creepy. He pulled up to “The Bachelor” house in a minivan stocked with “family” things to convince Becca he was serious about marriage and children. The whole thing was right out of the Julia Roberts movie “Sleeping with the Enemy.”
