What is it with reality shows nowadays? Why do they exist? What are their purposes? I know, I know, I’m old fashion to the core, but that is what makes me—me! Besides the fact that reality shows are extremely entertaining, I see no values or principles in them.
Let take The Bachelor for an example. Why do people even think about marriage on this show? Marriage is a sacred union, and it should not be taken lightly. If anyone ends up in a marriage, it must be to boost the show's ranking and to gain his or her own popularity!
Avoid Watching This Show
Here is my confession: I refuse to watch this show! It’s degrading the sacred vow of marriage! However, I have seen enough clips from the commercial to know that this show is a joke. It has too!
Set a Better Example
The bachelor for this season is a single dad. This must be great for his son to see him making out with 20 different women to find a wife. Shameless intimacy transfers from one woman to the next. Is this love? Can it be love? How gross can you get on national television?
And women!!!How do you feel to see this man kissing another woman in front of you, and turn around to kiss you and then someone else after you?
What are we teaching the children? Are we telling them it is all right to go on television, kissing, and making out with 20 different people during a specific time of filming to find their lifetime partner?
Where is the old fashion way of meeting someone and taking time to fall in love? How can anyone falling in love, or pick out a compatible life partner based on a contest?
I don’t know, maybe I am missing the purpose of the show! Maybe this new trend of getting married is not for my generation to grasp. Is there some kind of fulfillment viewers received when watching this show? Am I really missing an important hidden message in this show? What are they?
For me, I chose to click to another channel as quickly as I can. I rather watch cartoon than be entertained without any integrity!
