No one wants to be the one that runs into the party where everyone is having a good time only to knock over the table of drinks and turn the lights on.
But today, I feel like spoiling your party. Today, that killjoy be me.
Because today, reality TV fans are revelling in the glow that is the post-Bachelorette finale spotlight, where news headlines are littered with different angles on one love story and social media is awash with Sophie Monk’s face.
But although love is nice and reality TV like sugar and spice, here’s a thought: None of us have to be here.
Listen: Love The Bachelorette? Need to debrief? Get Bach Chat in your ears. (Post continues…)
Not us. Not Sophie. Not Stu. Not even Jarrod.
None of us needed to go on this journey, because this love story could’ve happened without a reality TV show shipping the duo along with intimate dates, an entire film crew and the costly (read: sponsored) trip to Fiji.
It could’ve happened MONTHS AGO. All Sophie Monk needed to do was set foot on that damn (and by ‘damn’ I mean very big, very nice, yes-I’d-like-a-ride) boat when she was asked the first time.
The end. Happy days. No TV crew necessary.
You know the other way they could’ve got together? Well, ask friend of the show Tom Gleeson, of course!
