Editor's note: (When you are the only writer, editor and reader of your blog, I'm not sure why i feel the need to make superflous editor's notes. But nonetheless, here we find ourselves again.) I don't hate Pinterest, but there is a slight Pinterest rant here. So if you hate loving Pinterest, don't read on. If you love hating Pinterest, tell me all about it.
As many of you know, I was NOT chosen to be the next Mormon Bachelor. While sad, I was super happy with Kent Tuttle as the choice and was even happier to still be involved with the show.
Part of what I do with the show is chat with Kent (and yeah, he is as nice as he looks, ladies).
Here's the thing about Kent--he is like a better looking, taller, more athletic and more endearing version of me. We have even doubled before and I remember at one point looking at my date thinking, 'I know, you wish you were with Kent.' But seriously, we do have similar tastes in a lot of things--including women.
Tonight we were talking about WHY we applied for the Mormon Bachelor, something hit us both.
He expressed exactly why I applied as well. He just said it like it is, "I wasted so much time at BYU dating a pretty face hoping that one day she will come out of her shell, but they never do." (follow him @CarkKent21)
BOOM! Nailed it. (no tacky pins needed (+2 points for non-alliterative pun))
To me that resonated like Pinterest does with bored housewives in the midwest (...too much. (How about a little less pinning of pretty shoes you wish you wore at the wedding you wish you had to a man you wish you married, and a little more parenting?) too soon? too soon. sorry. I retract that statement. Not enough to delete it from this post, but enough to say that I retract it. Take it for what it is. Okay...where was I?).
Really though. What Kent and I have always looked for is confident, spontaneous, fun, effervescent, ambitious, tenacious, bodacious (...?) girls. And with a show like this, those are the only kinds of girls that apply (or that Erin, the EP will let go through)! We've tried to date that cute quiet girl in the back of the class, and you know what? While there is the perfect guy for her, I don't think we're it.
So to all you haters who say that we should have never applied in the first place because we are just taking some stab at a glorified ego trip...I'm pretty sure which slice of this pie you would fit in.
