Of all of the reality shows that claimed to be seeking to help a boy or a girl find “true love” or someone to marry, only The Bachelorette was successful. It’s probably the only one that I actually saw any of anyway. To me, all of those dating shows (including the Joe Millionaire) were all a plot to get young, good looking guys and girls into and out of bathing suits, with varying degrees of intoxication and see what they would do and say.
Each series ended with some kind of rose ceremony. Each of them had someone that was rejected. And each of them said that they were dating or serious when they left (even though they gave a ring to the winner) and we heard that they broke up a few months later– except Trista and Ryan.
ABC was a twitter with the fact that this couple actually seemed like they could make it that they paid for the couple to be on camera for the rehearsal and wedding– which I did see if only to see what they’d do in a fancy paid for wedding. I was glad that someone could make it– that it wasn’t all a sham. And it was nice to see the few places that she appeared after that. So, I’m happy to see this latest bit of news:
Trista and Ryan Sutter, who found love on “The Bachelorette,” are expecting their first child, a representative for the couple said Wednesday.
The baby is due this summer, said publicist Yani Chang. The couple tied the knot in 2003 in a two-hour ABC special.
Ryan Sutter, 32, is a fireman in Vail, Colo. Trista Sutter, 34, is a designer for B’s Purses, an online boutique.
It’s nice to see that he’s still a regular guy and that someone was able to live a regular life. Though I don’t advocate the way that they met, what they did on camera, or the lifestyle that they promoted, I do advocate marriage then having a baby. So, congratulations Trista and Ryan. Thank you for showing us that it isn’t all show, and I pray that your baby lives a normal– non public– life.
