(If my count is right, by the time the new episode airs I will have watched three of the ones I've missed.)
Why are you people looking at me that way? Yes, I watched the first two seasons, and yes I enjoyed them - though I did miss the start of season one as well...
Side Note: What's actually disturbing here is the fact that Bret and I (keeping in mind that I am a female and NOT a rock star) have kind of the same taste in women.
(The only real difference is I ain't as into the crazy ones as he is. And also he has sent some home early on that I wouldn't have, but when it comes to the big winners...)
At the end of the first season he picked the same girl I would have, and at the end of season two he again picked the girl I would have. Though I do think if she hadn't walked away we might have ended up choosing differently (Bret and I), because I believe if Kristie (Kristy? Christie?) had stayed until the end he would have chosen her.
And, yes, I was positively stunned when Bret and Jes (Jess?) didn't work out. Admittedly I am less stunned that Bret and Ambre didn't make it, but there is still some shock. I actually believed that Ambre was mature enough to understand what exactly she was in for and that those two crazy kids might actually make it work.
Of course, during season two I started thinking that Bret actually missed his love-boat in season one. In hindsight I agree with Jes in that Heather would have been a better (the best) for Bret. Really, I think if he'd chosen Heather there probably wouldn't have been a season two let alone season three. I'm also beginning to wonder if he should have chosen Daisy at the end of season two.
Of course, by the same token it is a bit unlikely that Bret will ever find TLF in this way, but it is fun as hell to watch him try. And, okay, yes occasionally the inherent sexism of the whole thing gets to me. I.E. Bret is a pig, making those girls put up with all this crap while he just sets back and enjoys. On the other hand, Bret is a rock star, and whoever is with him would actually have to put up with that crap. So, he has a bit more of a good excuse for this crap than a lot of guys. So, Rock of Love is and remains a favored guilty pleasure of mine.
