The show the Bachelor is a very good case study in women if you look beyond the thing veneer of entertainment it is marketed as. A group of women are put into a situation where they are COMPETING for a single male. This is a situation that rarely happens in ‘real life’ where girls have guys at their beck and call.
Anyway, the show it very ironic in that these women devolve (or perhaps show their true colors) into neurotic, conspiring, obsessive animals. They back stab, plan, lie, do anything they can to stomp out the other girls for this one guys attention. The irony comes from the fact that these EXACT guy and girls reversed (meaning any one girl, and the guy among a group of 10 guys) the girl would not give the time of day to the male she is so obsessed with now.
A take away lesson: act like you have value, and if you ever get a harem going it quickly become self-sustaining.
