ABC Finally Embracing Diversity

Here at the Apologists, we generally don’t have many nice things to say about ABC or the producers of the Bachelorette, what with how they’ve been portraying Bentley and all. But we have to applaud them for one thing – their willingness to embrace diversity. No, not racial or ethnic diversity (all the contestants on the show are WASPs after all), but rather intergalactic diversity. Take Ames for instance. We like Ames. He’s clearly from another planet. Every time we seem him, it warms our hearts that the producers care so much about their other-worldly viewers to include an extraterrestrial on the show (though it is not fair to pit him up against Bentley). Sure, Ames is an alien but why should that keep him from finding love? Plus, if winning Ashley’s heart isn’t in the cards, Ames still has several options open to him including commanding the alliance Starfleet, becoming an Emmy-award-winning crooner, or having father/son outings with Zeus.

    So… building up Bentley is done now by putting down the other guys? Ames is the most intelligent guy in the whole bunch. I’m not saying his forehead didn’t throw me for a loop. And I thought he was boring… until their date. His personality makes up for his forehead and makes him very attractive. A guy can be a hot guy, but be a jerk, and be totally unattractive. A guy can be a weird-looking guy, but have an amazing personality, and be totally attractive. So I’m getting over the fact that Bentley fans like Bentley, but there should be no need to trash the other contestants if Bentley is so wonderful as he is. That’s petty…. and one would think it unnecessary, since you “know” Bentley is the “hottest” guy on the show (since he’s still on the show, apparently). Yes, Bentley keeps things interesting. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious as to what antics will be revealed on the next episode. But he’s definitely NOT the “hottest” guy on the show. And Ames has more depth in his baby toe then Bentley does in his entire body — including his hair.

      1) “His personality makes up for his forehead” nobody has that much personality.

      2) Ames is intelligent. One more reason his an alien. When have you ever seen a stupid alien in a movie? Plus he has those eyes.

      3) Who said anything about aliens being unattractive. Shoot there is a TV series on right now (“V”) that has all aliens being super-hot!… From any perspective, he is an Alien.

      4) Wish we could say we were above cheap shots, but you do realize we blog about reality TV? We are not even gossip rag status. We are a blog that needs content updates 1-2 times a day.

    Who, exactly is this “we” of whom you speak? To have all this research, compiling information, writing/editing blogs twice a day, and responding to almost every comment… wow… so, it certainly does seem like a “we” kinda gig. How many comprise this “we?” Hopefully, there is pay involved. I can imagine the staff meetings and the synced calendar events. But this must get boring and tired and old after awhile. Being all about Bentley all the time. Still, I’m relieved that “you” are a “we.” And that “we” are hopefully getting paid for suck a mundane existence. Whew.

    Sorry; that was catty, wasn’t it? It feels good to be catty sometimes. This forum is a nice way to release it. And for that, I’m truly grateful. Thanks, “Apologists!”… =D

      Well you ask some big questions. The army of Bentley Apologist grows with each episode with Bentley. Compensation would be insulting for the type of work we do. We are champions of truth, justice, and amazing hair.

      A “mundane existence” is watching reality TV without Bentley.

      A couple other points.

      1. We love your comments on this blog, and please feel free to be catty whenever you want – we are!
      2. When we feature other contestants on this blog (which we will continue to do), we are not necessarily trashing them (though we ARE actually trashing Chris Harrison). We like some of the other contestants, honest! (we especially like those who like Bentley). This includes Big League Chew and Ames. However, with discrimination running rampant in America, we felt it was time to recognize ABC for embracing intergalactic diversity. It’s a very brave thing for them to have cast Ames for the show, and while we don’t think his species will necessarily be able to combine with a humanoid, it’s been a joy to watch him.
      3. Have we mentioned that Bentley is awesome?

    What about playing a ridiculously chisled man only wearing a loin cloth? http://www.fanpop.com/spots/brendan-fraser/videos/14425851/title/brendan-fraser-hottest-tarzan-ever

    RUDE!!! Ames is a babe!!

    C’mon I agree with your blog and don’t mind the hating on chris harrison and the bachelorette producers…
    i completely agree. But no need to hate on the other guys and make fun of how they look! That makes you just as bad! Don’t stoop to the level of making someone look bad just to be funny, or because you can. It’s not nice. I think Ames is super cute anyway.

    Keep blogging though, i have loved the rest of your content! 🙂

      I think you misunderstand us. We’re definitely not “hating” on the other guys. For all we know, the fact that Ames is an alien is the most amazing thing he’ll ever accomplish in his life (however long that may be for his species). In fact, he may have come to visit our planet because he was just a mundane everyman on his homeworld. But here — here he’s an alien celebrity. And that makes us a fan.

    My opinion…Bentley reminds me of one of those rich spoiled brats with ‘boat shoes’ hanging out by the yacht with his sweater and striped shirt and ‘cargo shorts’…Spoiled rich ‘daddy’s boy’.. and really, come on already, HE is NOT attractive at all…So many other MUCH more attractive men on the show this year…by far!
    Case closed.

      Case closed? What case? You gave your opinion. Look at the edits post look at the “bentley has more class” post and read them. That’s how you make a case.
