Mike Fleiss on Why There Are More Bachelor Than Bachelorette Stars: Because Many Men Won’t Compete, Saying Instead, ‘Forget that chick, let’s go to Hooters’

Jul 29, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Mike Fleiss, the reality show creator of the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise on ABC–which had another successful run this summer, culminating with its traditional "After the Rose" special Tuesday night–tells the Los Angeles Times why we’ve seen eight Bachelors but only five Bachelorettes.

The reason. Fleiss says, is that men don’t generally compete for women with the same passion that women compete for men. When men get rebuffed thay are usually quick to say "Forget that chick. Let’s go to Hooters," Fleiss tells the LA Times in a long piece about the show.

  1. Love Mike’s shows but c’mon Mike! Hooters is lame compared to other places guys hang out at if they want to meet girls. If you’re 16 years old maybe, but not contestants for your shows. We’ll keep watching though!

  2. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.. 🙂
