I have a theory about the Bachelor/Bachelorette series on ABC. I’ve always speculated that the Bachelor relationships will never last, because men are hunters, and in that show they are being hunted. It’s not in a man’s nature to find himself caught, and happy being there.
On the Bachelorette series, however, the guys are doing the hunting. The prime piece of prey is the prize, and if they catch her, they get to keep her. I never really thought about it before, but if this is true, then when the Bachelor is taking his pick between the last two women, he’s never going to pick love. He’s going to pick game, so that he can keep hunting, even if deep down he really does love one of those girls. I guess men love challenge, and they’re always going to make selections accordingly. So what does the Bachelorette pick? Love? Game? Security?
