Welcome to my weekly blog series: Tuesday Walk of Shame. Here I hang my head low as I admit to having watched the previous night’s episode of The Bachelor / Bachelorette / Bachelor In Paradise (or whatever the newest spin-off happens to be) and provide my own personal commentary. I’ll tell you what I loved. I’ll tell you what I hated. And most importantly, I’ll tell you what I would have done differently.
Vote Kris for The Bachelorette… because socially anxious, kinda bitchy, hopelessly unromantic nerds deserve love too.
Kris has graciously let me take over her Tuesday Walk of Shame series this week so that I can discuss one of my favourite things to ever come out of the Bachelor franchise:
“Villains Gotta Vill”
Clint and JJ were one of the most hilarious parts of the most recent season of The Bachelorette. Their bromance: epic. Their subsequent break-up: extremely dramatic and amusing. ICYMI, you can check out a quick recap on their relationship here. All of this being said, the best thing that came out of it all was the line “Villains gotta vill”, which they coined while hanging out, acting like total villains, and being weirdly into each other.
This line was so excellent that Clint and JJ have become friends again and started a website, VillainsGottaVill.com. In fact, they started a website, a blog, and a fashion line together, and apparently podcasts are soon to come. Adorable.
I didn’t think I could like JJ any more than I did after he went from villain to hero during his exit from Bachelor in Paradise, but while spending some time browsing his new website I came to a scary conclusion. I kind of think that I would totally be friends with both Clint and JJ in real life. Their website is hilarious and ridiculous and clever. These are a couple of intelligent, funny, athletic, and attractive guys that, for some reason, ended up on a season of The Bachelorette. I would sure like to hear the story of how that happened. At least they were both there to meet their respective soul mates – each other.
But back to VillainsGottaVill.com, I highly recommend checking it out if you like sarcastic hilarity with a witty edge. At this point they don’t have a ton of content up, but I know that I will be keeping watch for new things all the time. So far it is full of interesting commentary and insights about appearing on The Bachelorette – which I think is totally something that every good Bachelor fan wants to read.
One of my favourite parts of the website is the “Villain’s Guide to Reality TV Dating”. I cannot wait until future contestants on The Bachelor start to cite things from this online book. I think any good villain could take some advice from two of the best!
What do you think of Clint and JJ’s new venture? Let me know in the comments!
