The Buzz on The Bachelor and Coconut Water

I have to say I haven't always liked the Bachelor, but for some reason I started watching it this season. And despite it's hoakiness, Jake's bad lines, the corny music and the lack of relatable bachelorettes, it's been one of my guilty pleasures.

I've been rooting for Ali the whole time. I know she's a little dramatic, but she reminds me a lot of a friend of mine and I think she and Jake would make the best couple. Out of someone who is ridiculously insecure and uncomfortable in her own skin, someone who is clearly not over her last relationship (how many times can you say ex-husband?!?!), and an obnoxious girl who looks like a squirrel, I'm just not siding with anyone else. I literally yelled at my TV last night when Ali left for her job, and when she actually got in the limo I kept saying "You're going to turn around....now! No? Not yet? Ok, now. Ok, maybe now. Ok, maybe after another block..."

I was literally mad. I was mad at this stupid show. And I am embarrassed that I actually cared that a guy I think is a total wimp and a girl I don't know are not on the wings of love right now. And god was I excited that she called him while they were on their trip. If Ali doesn't come back I will seriously pitch a fit.

TV, you've finally sucked me in. Maybe I do need to pick up knitting.

Also, a positive vote for coconut water. If you're looking for a refreshing sports drink, need some potassium or are chronically dehydrated (or all 3), check out Zico coconut water. You can find it at health food stores or Whole Foods, and it's super mild. It's a little expensive, but I'm willing to drink pretty much anything to stay hydrated. No, Mr. Coconut Water did not call me to advocate for it, I'm just sick of drinking Pedialyte and Gatorade. Apparently it's also a great hangover cure. If I ever drink alcohol again I promise I'll let you know how it works.


  1. I thought Ali was going to turn around too! I kept saying "Get out now! Run Back!" I am sure she will come back. The rest of the girls suck. What was with Tenely's dance???

  2. Coconut water sounds so good!

    I was mad too, Ali is my favorite! I don't know if this is true, but I heard that they ask her to be the next bachelorette, so we may see her again, and with a better guy!

  3. She was my favorite too! Although, I kept justifying her decision because, at the end of the day, I probably would have done the same thing too.
    You put all this energy, time and money into your career and it's a for sure. Jake wasn't a for sure. He can always pull a Jason on the reunion show right?

  4. OMG This is so funny! I think Jake is such a little wimpy guy too - how many times can a real man cry on TV?

  5. OMG Tenely's dance was sooooo embarrassing! Of course, we all loved Ali the best and that is why they made up that lie about her job and did a fake-out with her "leaving". Of course she'll come back and win because it has been so obvious from the beginning that she was "the one".

    I don't like coconut unless it is in macaroon form, so yuck about the water. Sorry.

  6. yay!! youre back and you have this post has the best tag ever. you should watch survivor. it is seriously addicting.

  7. I hear ya RE: The Bach. I read yesterday that Jake & Ali are secretly together, so perhaps there is hope for us (& them) yet!

  8. I've heard really good things about coconut water... I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like something I'd enjoy.
