While we were in the Dominican Republic, Jo accidentally got addicted to ABC’s The Bachelorette. Naturally, I’ve been obliged to watch every episode since.
We’ve just finished watching an episode (it comes out Monday nights in America, so thank christ for SurfTheChannel.com), but to spice it up a bit we came up with the following drinking game:
Drink whenever any of the following phrases are mentioned:
Alone time/One-on-one time
All the blokes on the program will say this at least once each
Heart (as a metaphor)
This phrase is widerife among everyone. Hearts beating fast, etc, don’t count.
Absolutely (instead of "yes", not as a modifier)
Because in America, “Yes” isn’t extreme enough.
[Girl's name] looks/is beautiful/amazing
Again, all the blokes will say something this obvious each episode.
This is a new addition (09÷06÷2010), designed to replace some of the other rules as the series progresses and the format changes. This phrase is prolific, so hardcore drinkers only, please.
I know there’s only four rules, but it’s on for two whole hours (25% of which is adverts for incredibly cheap fast food — we also saw an amazing offer to buy six gallons of milk and get a seventh free — who the fuck is buying this much milk?! Anyway…) and the amount of repetition and stating the obvious is truly mind blowing.
