The Bachelor, Tim Robards is looking for love about as much as Kris Jenner is looking for anonymity

Sometimes sharing TV concepts between countries just does not work.  The perfect example of this is Channel Ten’s version of The Bachelor.  The main reason being that our population is just too small.  Plucking a gorgeous looking man, which is part of the format, who is actually genuine about finding love, and on a TV show no less, requires a serious needle in a haystack search.

The Bachelor, Australia,  is about as genuine as Sam Worthington and Sophie Monk being an item.  And possibly Lara Bingle as well.

Tim Robards, The Bachelor is an externally gifted Sydney guy, as aware of his looks being his weapon as one might imagine given the guy has been modelling around Sydney for a number of years.

Channel Ten, really, could you not have stretched yourselves to search for a reasonable looking guy that might not be working in an industry that already makes us wonder if the bloke really struggles with the ladies or…not?

I mean, yes anyone that’s single, a good person and presents fairly well will say it’s not always easy to meet the right person, however resorting to a TV show where you get snippets of time with a bunch of potentials is not exactly allowing for you to really get to know someone much beyond working out ‘she likes tight green dresses with sequins and quite a lot of make up’.

Of course I’m not even necessarily thinking that Channel Ten is all that worried how gobsmackingly obvious it is that this Tim guy is in it for the fame not the dame because there’s plenty of women out there driving their partners nuts with their obsession with this show.  I know this as a fact after seeing three friends last week launch into why they love it, only to have their partners rolling their eyes in pain behind their backs.

The pull of this show is not just Tim’s good looks and definitely not the fact that he gives a hoot about falling in love with these girls who line themselves up like cattle waiting for a chance to impress their master.  Waiting for a chance to pull out a few tricks that will get one over the next girl.  All while Tim sits there doing the Mr Suave ‘I don’t need to try hard’ look.

This is not a two-way street to finding love this show. This is Sergeant Tim waving through the traffic, acting professionally until they’ve all passed him by.

Turning up this week at the races in Melbourne, Tim did what he does best by charming all the ladies, having photos with excited fans and generally just using this media heavy time to crank up his profile and milk the living daylights out of it.

Oddly, there surely would have to be a clause in this guy’s contract with Ten that would state lay low until after the show?  Or did he sneak out the Bachelor pad window not daring to miss a chance to play the single hunk looking for love gig? After all, the one thing a Sydney style fame seeker needs, is the female version of himself.

Like Dorothy in Oz, all you need to do is click those red heels together and repeat THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE FLEMINGTON, THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE FLEMINGTON.

So I do get why the show is doing well.  I totally get why those who haven’t seen the American version are thoroughly enjoying a format that basically just shows the manipulation, desperation and shallowness of some women searching for love and attention.  And I’m sorry, but this can be entertainment enough.

But this show should have and could have been so much more than this watered down version Channel Ten has thrown us. It should have been about a guy looking for love.  Sure he could have had side aspirations of TV notoriety but we should be seeing this guy having some real feelings from time to time.

Now I’m no casting director, but Tim Robard as the guy looking for love?  Hmmmm…..don’t call us Tim, we’ll call you!
