Honestly, I don’t understand how people believe anything that’s going on in the Bachelor or Bachelorette. For one, there is blatant behind-the-scenes manipulation to ensure ratings, and for another, a LOT of their lines are scripted or roughly preconceived. In fact, there’s a lot more ‘acting’ than there is reality, especially when the show comes down to the wire and there’s only a few episodes left.
For example, Nick Viall publicly shared the fact that he and Andi Dorfman ‘made love’, even though Andi ended up picking Josh Murray as the winner. But who do you think made him say that? You think he would have done it if he wasn’t getting handsomely compensated? There’s no way that guy would have humiliated himself so completely on TV without something in it for him, especially since he wasn’t even the winner.For her part, Andi was clearly pissed after Nick’s confrontation, so I’m guessing that she might not have been warned that it was happening – or she’s a good actor. But after the moment finished filming, what’s the bet that Andi, Nick, and Josh all sat together and laughed?
Even then, Nick’s been under a lot of pressure to apologize for ‘humiliating’ Andi, and he apologized to her – again on national TV. He explained, “I definitely wish I had that opportunity to have that conversation with her in private.”
Yes, but then you wouldn’t be able to capitalize on your exposure to land interview after interview after interview. See, it’s all part of the game, and they all know that. It’s only the audiences who get duped into believing this stuff is real.
