What do you think? Have you watched the past seasons of Bachelor in Paradise on ABC? Will you be tuning in for season six tonight and season seven next year?
Trashy show. I tried watching during the first season but was turned off by the trash. A friend has been telling me that the show has cleaned up and I really need to try it again.

I totally agree with The Dipper! It just seems like only real crap is being renewed because of the cut off age for the sponsors… Only those under 49 seem to have clout.

Lets hit them where it hurts. ; )
Another trash reality show renewed. What has happened to our society.
