If ABC keeps figuring out ways to pound new seasons of “The Bachelor/ette,” I’m going to stop counting how old I am in years and only discuss my age in reference to particular seasons of the show.
“When Emily Maynard was ‘The Bachelorette’ I had just started a new job…”
“When Aaron Buerge was ‘The Bachelor’ I had to walk to school up a hill both ways, in the snow.”
Why? Because the first promo for the new season featuring Arie Luyendyk Jr. is just ABC saying, “Remember this guy? Maybe? Well, he was on the show once and he got dumped. It was a very long time ago. Like, years ago. Remember? If you don’t remember, you can remind yourself by watching old episodes. Why don’t you watch these old episodes and remind yourself?”
