This season's bachelor is Matt Grant, a six-foot, five-inch blue-eyed 27-year-old "financier" from London. But is he ready to walk down the aisle? Well, he's apparently the youngest of five married brothers and is "ready to start a family", according to OK Magazine. Not a bad sign.
Call me a softie, but for some reason, past precedent has no affect on me, and instead, I just have incredible faith in this show. Sure, about 80% of the time the relationships don't work out, but you have to admit it's entertaining to watch regardless of the outcome. If people can find love on a blind date, newspaper personals, via speed dating or Match.com, then why can't they find it on a television show? Here's hoping that this season results in another on-air proposal, televised wedding, and well-publicized offspring, a la Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter.
