You guyssssss, I’m having problems. Like, I just don’t think Emily’s totally getting how this show works. You don’t actually come to The Bachelor franchise to find love. You “look for” love, mostly in or around hot tubs, bridges, and fantasy suites. Did you not do any homework for this, Emily? I didn’t suffer through a season of watching Ashley straddle anything with a lap just to watch you high-five on a ledge. So, get a move on it, homegirl. The people want their softcore porn. Anyhoo, to the task at hand…
