I have a love/hate relationship with The Bachelor/The Bachelorette. See, I love the show and hate myself because of it. No amount of snarky tweets with the appropriate hashtag can take away the fact that I tuned in for every single episode last season and then spent most of my Tuesday mornings reading recaps. Ever since we saw floppy-haired Ben choose preying mantis model Courtney, I've felt a void in my life and have been forced to find other things to do with two whole hours every Monday. I even resorted to working out and reading books. Well tonight, as Emily Maynard, the impossibly hot widowed mother, starts her journey as this season's bachelorette, I can now thankfully resume my regularly scheduled programming of joyful, brain-rotting entertainment and subsequent disgust and loathing.
This season, I'm just gonna go all in and add another vice to my Monday viewing parties: drinking. Click on for the rules to DivineCaroline's The Bachelorette drinking game as well as a sneak-peak into what's in store for tonight's episode.
P.S. Things are about to get weird. Please be responsible.
Let's start off strong here: Take a sip every time a voice-over says something cliche about love. Examples: "captured America's hearts," "she'll have to kiss a lot of frogs," "prince charming." You might be tipsy before the opening credits are over.
