Someone who understands the TRUE definition of MARRIAGE (Marriage is the #1 cause of divorce).
BOB: So, do you ever think about getting married?

JOE: Hell no, I can't afford a divorce! Besides Jesus didn't get married, and He said there is no marriage in Heaven, so that's gotta tell you something! I'll be a bachelor FOREVER!

An exaggerated, scripted, over the top fantasy romance program. Full of unnecessary drama, some take the show seriously and try to live by it. (Generally those that do, go long term single).

The male contestants are generally "attractive" men (no surprise) because apparently it's only "romantic" if the guy is good looking.
Can't believe Kaye and that hot guy Brian made out on the Bachelor!

A prudent, sensible, and wise life-enabling decision to remain single, remain a first class citizen, enjoy relatively high degrees of personal freedom, prosperity, and self-determination, and avoid a very expensive, dangerous, hostile, abusive, deeply exploitive, oppressive, and life-crushing enslaving marriage and the unjustly deeply anti-male legal system in the likely, arbitrary, possibly unpredictable, and life-crippling divorce.
Bachelorism means retaining your full civil rights and first class citizenship, personal dignity and self-respect. Bachelorism means never being in fear or experiencing the actual or the constant threat of emotional and physical abuse and arbitary and unjust arrest, homelessness, imprisonment, ruin, and indentured servitude at your wife's sole discretion (regardless of your kind character or behavior) without legal protection, recourse, or respect; it also means complete self-determination, freedom to enjoy your life as you wish on your own terms, and generally greater opportunity and personal prosperity in life. Bachelorism is the clear freedom from the exploitation and sacrificing of a used, disposable man's life for the unilateral entertainment and profit an ever-expectant, hateful, greedy, self-indulgent, entitlement- and luxury-obsessed and sneeringly and derisively nonrecripricatory, ulterior, incipidly disrespecting vicious wife. To men, marrying women in the current social, cultural, and legal environment is unhealthy, oppressive, and physically, psychologically, and legally dangerous. Bachelorism is relatively freedom-ensuring, sane, safe, and financially, legally, and personally healthy. Bachelorism is to respect yourself and retain your human rights.

The worst show on television. A show of no value and one that propogates the ridiclousness of "reality" tv
