Hey you guys,
I didn’t expect to be writing the most anticipated pop culture post of the year here on Mamamia, but welcome to the final episode of The Bachelor season 4.
I’m not here to tell you the winner. You can find out about that later on our site. And I’m certainly not here to write a Bachie finale recap. That was meant to be Rosie’s job tonight but she’s unwell and, just like Hillary Clinton (they’re very similar), she’s had to take some sick leave from work to recover.
We’ve spent all day today thinking long and hard about how to cover the final Bach episode in Rosie’s absence and we decided to do that elsewhere on Mamamia.
But I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge what an extraordinary phenomenon Rosie has birthed here at Mamamia in recapping the Bachelor.
In all my years in the media, I’ve never seen anything even remotely like it.
Let me tell you how it started. Back in 2012, cramped in our first Mamamia office around our shared desk, it went something like this:
Rosie: I want to write recaps of The Bachelor.
Me: The TV show? Is that on? No Rosie, you can’t recap The Bachelor. That show is so sexist. Shut up.
Rosie: But I love it.
Rosie: But it’s amazing.
Rosie: But I’ve already written it, on my own time.
Me: \_(ツ)_/¯ OK whatevs.
