This week ABC released the list of lovely women vying for the hand of Ben Higgins, the software guy who lives in Colorado and builds homes for poor Hondurans in his spare time. Ben is every nice girls' ticket to dreamboat city.
But, the huge number of women isn't the big news this week. Oh no. The biggest news is that one of the women listed her profession as a Chicken Enthusiast. Has this got you wondering what that is, like the rest of the Nation?
I happen to think it sounds like the best profession I've seen on The Bachelor, maybe ever. And I've been a HUGE fan since the first season with what's his name. Ya, him.
Last week, anyone creeping her name on social media could see that she has a very good job, one that kind of explains those gorgeous teeth. But she must have a fun side also, one that has a degree of crazy-wackiness in this woman that just might translate well to great TV viewing. Remember when Bachelor Nation campaigned for Amy Schumer to be the next Bachelorette? People want funny! So often, the girls are boring and careful, and I for one would love to see a chicken enthusiast explain herself.
If you find her on Instagram at Mizz_Minxy, you'll see that she leads a very active life that involves chickens. Even her Dad likes chickens, looks like. That's the spirit! There's a particularly cute photo of her with a favorite chicken whose name escapes me right now. But hey, look at those fingernails. Is that a clue into the psyche of the chicken enthusiast? Did you think frivolous the same time I did? Yes you did.
Here's my main thought on this chicken enthusiast profession that everyone (including Kimmel and Fallon) are talking about this week:
Could it be that someone is actually making fun of The Bachelor reality show by throwing this crazy profession back in the faces of those hungry producers who need a good hook to keep the show fresh? (I'm imagining a young producer begging Tiara to do more chicken schtick for the camera so he can get a funny shot of her.)
If you creep Ms. Soleim on Instagram, you'll see that she rides horses inarguably better than most of the population, has tons of smiley friends, loves the outdoors, competes in a snow sculpture competitions with her family, water skis, models wedding gowns, looks fab in a bikini, and kisses chickens. At that last one I'm thinking, okay, I kiss my dogs and let them lick my face sometimes so I can't fault Chicken Lady for this. How does this translate to the love connection? From what I've read about Ben the Bachelor, he's adventurous and outdoorsy. And benevolent. I have to think that Ben will love this woman. Also, didn't his bio say his physical type was Black Lively? Look below...
Other professions not getting nearly as much attention this week in the same entertainment news circles are Cowgirl, Unemployed and Mathematician. (I needed spell check for that last one!) Mathematician is what happens when a perfectly lovely and brainy woman puts her real, money-paying profession on the application form without any hint of her tongue planted firmly in her cheek.
Soon enough we'll be watching the show and will forget what they they all do for a living, instead calling them by names like Onion Girl or Black-Boxed Butt Girl or even Drunk Girl, and you know there's always one of those in every crowd. But, until the show gets rolling, I'm having fun anticipating what the chicken enthusiast who looks like Blake Lively will say and do!
How about you?
