The producers of The Bachelor haven't shown enough as yet of Chris Soules' character to break down this prejudice. Chris is a very successful businessman with a great heart and he handles himself well with the women. However at this point the show is open to spoofing because the audience is just not buying that all these women want to move to the country just because he's a hunk.
Saturday Night Live satirized this problem with Blake Shelton playing Chris. Don't let your romance turn into a comedy unless you want it to. I believe Chris will acquit himself well and get his happily-ever-after, but maybe I'm an incurable romantic.
I'm toying with the idea of collecting my blog posts here on the male POV and making it into a "how to write male characters" book. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
