We’re more than halfway through the second season of The Bachelorette and we’re clearly going through a single dad drought. All we’ve got are “Medical Sales Representatives” and Tradespeople who look a lot like models, but no single dads. Not one dad IN TWO SEASONS that is looking for love on a reality show.
You’re probably asking:
“Why should this issue matter, Jeff? Btw, Jeff, you’re hilarious and should have your own late night show!”
Me: “I know!!! I’ve emailed Channel 9 and they said ‘they’d get back to me…”
Kinda seriously, though, there appears to be a little inequality going on here. The show runs to a predictable format (as does every other show), but the last two seasons of The Bachelor featured hot single mums. And guess what? BOTH OF THE SINGLE MUMS WON!
Where are the single dads? Look, I'm not totally crazy, I get that this is a reality show for people that are way hotter than I am, but there's gotta be a ripped single dad out there who is divorcée/widower who is looking for the second great love of his life.
He probably has an approachable name, like Brad, and he does some job that female viewers would love, like a vet trying to save the very endangered Tasmanian Devils. Brad is 36, tall, brunette with a bit of salt and pepper to show the wisdom that he's picked up over the decades. He has a five-year-old son, Billy, who misses his mum and keep asking Daddy to "find a new Mummy" - cut to close up shot of Bachelorette crying.
See? Look how easy that was? I'm sure you could find heaps of regular single dads if the producers can't find Brad in the forests of Tasmania.
