Bristol Palin Says 'Bachelorette' Gig Would Be 'Too Boring'

TV Addict 13

Bristol PalinBristol Palin may be off Dancing With the Stars, but that doesn't mean she is out of the spotlight. Currently, the famous daughter and single mom is taking some heat for telling Jimmy Kimmel that she would never be The Bachelorette. It would be “too boring” she said.

And while some are taking issue with her and saying that she thinks she is "too good" for the franchise, I think she is awesome for saying what she said. It WOULD be boring. For many reasons.

Bristol is just too uptight for the role. That's for sure. And she knows it, too. She said, "I don't think I am that kind of character." We already had one somewhat boring single mom on the show. Not that I don't love Emily Maynard. I totally do. But you have to admit, she wasn't a spice fest.

The fact is, Bristol is both a young single mom AND the daughter of a politician. She couldn't possibly afford to be slutting it up in the Bachelor mansion's cesspool hot tub. Bristol, for all her reality TV, is really more of a reserved person. She seems shy.

In fact, before people started being so mean to her and she went on the defensive, she used to seem kind of sweet and shy. These aren't good qualities for a woman who is supposed to date/narrow down 25 potential suitors into one husband. Besides, let's face it, no one ever finds love on the show. They find cheap, B-grade fame. And Bristol already has that!

Nope, Bristol chose the right path with DWTS. If you want to do reality, that is the show to do. It takes talent, but it doesn't reveal too much of who you are. You make money, but you don't whore yourself out. And, in the end, it's a competition, replete with weight loss and fitness benefits.

In fact, Bristol's reaction to The Bachelorette question makes me like her even more. If she holds true and doesn't give in to ABC if she is asked, then she has integrity. It's a train wreck of a show. She is right to stay away.

Do you think Bristol would make a good Bachelorette?

Integrity? She charges tens of thousands to speak about the importance of Abstinence (Personally if my child is being told the benefits of it, I'd prefer the speaker to not have a child before marriage). This girl has 0 integrity.

Omg Krelia, if you ever ever listen to even a portion of her speech, you would hear her say that abstinence is the best way to go, but she is not stupid and knows kids have sex so use protection. She always preaches that. She also tells girls that it is hard to be a single mother and she wished she listened to her mom, but she wouldnt have it any other way.

Bristol Palin has done an amazing amount of maturing in a relatively short amount if time... And she has done well. I believe that if you look at the MTV show "Teen Mom" you have all the proof you need that being a teen mom isn't easy, but now consider that you didn't want or agree to be on TV, magazine covers...

I believe that deep down, she was shy and she did well to turn all the attention she got in to helping other teen make good decisions. Her first run on DWTS really was the kindest way to break through that shyness that I think is possible in today's media.

That she came back and showed the she has continued to mature is noteworthy and impressive. I believe she is learning and accepting who she is. As for what she told Jimmy Kimmel, Bravo!

The Bachelorette is a gimmick show with an exhibitionist as the lead, and a bunch of loser guys who also want and need the publics attention.

She has no business preaching anything. Especially not hypocritical viewpoints.

I think if anyone has the right to speak on abstinence.  It's a teen mom.  Bristol and other teen moms have gone through pregnancy at an age where they should still be hanging out and being kids. They have the life experience to say " I screwed up and it ended my childhood".  Teen moms still love their kids like any other mom but they had a completely different experience.

And I don't agree with Bristol's opinions but I still think she's a respectable young woman who isn't afraid to speak her mind.

She has the nerve to say something would be to boring. I would almost fall asleep when they showed clips of her and then her dancing...omg. Poor Mark being stuck with her when the other girls he partnerex with in previous shows are awesome.

Bristol has improved in looks and dancing skills. I sgree she presents as a shy up tight young lady but there's nothing wrong with that. We wish she could have made another round, it was Kirsty's time to go.

I saw the interview. I think she was humbly infering that "she" would be boring on the bachelor NOT that doing the show would be boring.
