As any woman in her 20s and 30s who has tried her hat at online dating knows, a blind date -- even if you've seen a person's photo, or in the case of "The Bachelor," watched them on reality TV -- is a crapshoot.
After spending a private night together in a "fantasy suite," Dorfman confessed that she couldn't wait to for it to end, because, to put it succinctly, JP is a pretty sh*tty person to date.
This may be the realest season of "The Bachelor" yet.
After 18 seasons of showing lithe, white women woo a man with minimal time and alluded-to sex, viewers were finally allowed to see the "Bachelor" equivalent of the man behind the curtain: lack of interest.
And at a certain point, the wrong date just becomes infuriatingly annoying.
"I want to die if I have to hear 'it's OK' one more time," Andi told Juan Pablo.
Yet "The Bachelor" operates on the premise that the star has the power to choose or not choose any of his suitors.
(It's bit more common to see a male contestant bowing out early, but even then it is often portrayed as a massive betrayal or agonizing heartbreak.)The most illuminating part about last night's Andi-Juan Pablo confrontation is that he didn't do anything horrific during their "nightmare" overnight date.
"Not once did he really ask anything about me," she told the cameras. I The fact that Andi announced the relationship was over before Juan Pablo had a chance to -- and was allowed by ABC to do so -- is damn near revolutionary in the "Bachelor" world.
Like Sharleen Joynt who peaced out (by choice) before her, Andi just didn't want to date Juan Pablo and wasn't going to fake it once she realized that for sure.
