The Bachelor - crappest prize in tv history?

I keep seeing the new series of The Bachelor advertised on TV. It seems the 'prize' is Gavin Henson, well I suppose it must be some sort of date or holiday with him, rather than legal ownership?!

Am I missing something? Loads of screaming women competing for Charlotte Church's sloppy seconds. confused A man with baggage and a dodgy groin who has been charged with disorderly conduct? He's not even particularly attractive.

As prizes on tv shows go, this seems less appealing than even Dusty Bin (showing age), the 'hostess with the mostess' trolleys on Price is Right, a rubber 'Bully' or the frozen chicken that Al Murray offers.

It's the same as a speed boat type thing in bulls eye.
Looks nice in an obvious kind of way but on a day-to-day basis utterly useless in almost every way.

Or maybe I'm misjudging the poor guy- he must be a bit desperate to do that!

Yep, in real life if anybody read about him as a potential partner, we'd all be saying RUN FOR THE HILLS!!

Would agree in theory, but having watched him on Strictly he's a bit of a grower, he has a subtle and bone dry sense of humour.....or possibly he's just very thick indeed.

I'd shag him blush

His rapier wit and lightening intelligence are so subtle they are undetectable.

As prizes go, he makes the blankety-blank cheque book and pen look breath takingly generous.

As Hilary Devey would say, he'd make my foot itch!

I cannot stand him and I cannot understand why 25 women would fight for him. I wonder whether they knew he was the prize.

He is the worst booby-prize of all time.

have you seen the show? watched it with dh the other night; so funny (suspect unintentional); how could anyone seriously think the girls are in it for anything other than fame?

I'd eat the blankety-blank cheque book and pen before I'd date that Orange Spudulike.

Just caught a few seconds whilst channel hopping.

The women simpering & fawning.

Was it just me who wanted to slap them & say "FFS would you look at yourselves?"

I did too diddle - God help me if this is how DDs1 and 2 end up - I would hope they'd have a bit more ambition than that.

I guess there is nothing some people won't do to get on the telly. There was an American version where the 'prize' was a washed up tennis player. Gross.
