Bachelor 2011 Spoilers: Producers Exploiting Tragedy?

Filed under : Celebrity News

The 2011 season of The Bachelor is underway now, and so far with less controversy than usual: that is, none of the women are actually in relationships or sleeping with the producers. But that is all set to change. Tensions are running high in the house and set to get a whole lot more volatile as the producers ramp up the pressure on the dates.

In a week when Brad Womack is getting intimate with several women, Chantal and Michelle bagged themselves one-on-one dates. But it was Emily Maynard who really grabbed Brad’s interest and kept him chatting at the cocktail party, having already driven the rest of the girls crazy with jealousy. He is seen asking her to follow him for a romantic picnic at the house, where he then tells her how special she is to him.

Despite producers’ denials, Emily Maynard’s tragic past is clearly to be exploited later in the season.

When she was 19 and engaged to racing driver, Ricky Hendrick, he was tragically killed when the small plane taking him to a race crashed. She wears the ring Ricky gave her on her ring finger, so is clearly still grieving. Yet, producers staged her first one-on-one date in a small private plane just like the one in which her fiancé was killed. But there are more trials to come. Later in the series, Emily will be treated to another one-on-one date: in a race car! Is this fair play or insensitive exploitation? You tell us!

    Is it really necessary to have these dates? Are the producers that uncreative to have to exploit her and her grief. I use to love the Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons but, now it’s not even about love it’s about drama, scandal sex. Are they ever going to have new people? It seems like they just use the same people from different seasons.

    I think for them to put Emily through this is just mean and nasty, producers are totally insensitive and I agree thinking only of the ratings!

    My husband & I think that the Producers are totally insensitive to Emily’s vunerable feelings and that episode which is slotted to run 01/31/11 should “NOT” be aired. This is strictly for ratings and not taking Emily’s feelings into the equation. bc falco
