'Will you accept this rose?': a gateway to The Bachelor
"Will you accept this rose?" is a question that is not only asked in every episode of The Bachelor, but has become a part of pop culture vernacular. Season 22 of the reality TV stalwart recently started, and if you've never seen it, or assume it's just frivolous television, writer Suzannah Showler wants you to think differently. Showler just published a book called Most Dramatic Ever, and talks about what The Bachelor tells us about our ideas on dating, romance and North American identity.
