Donnie Wahlberg Defends Love for 'The Bachelor' in New Essay

The Bachelor‘s season finale airs tonight and one person who you can count on watching is Donnie Wahlberg, who just defended his love for the show in a new op-ed essay.

“This has to be some kind of karmic retribution,” the 46-year-old entertainer starts off the essay. “A turning of the tables for all of those husbands out there who had to put up with their wives wanting to go see the New Kids on The Block reunion concerts. Sweet revenge for the nice-guy hubbies who had to put up with their wives talking about how hunky Jordan was, cute Joey still is or how much of a ‘bad boy’ Donnie was, during his Public Enemy T-shirt-wearing rebellious phase.”

“Payback, for all those men who spent their paychecks on surprise New Kids concert tickets for their spouses. The same guys who had to then shell out another $30 for a Jonathan T-shirt, or even more (than I care to mention) for a meet and greet photo op with the band,” he continues.

“What other explanation could there be, that could make sense of the fact that… I am addicted to the The Bachelor!!!” Donnie said. “It’s karma, isn’t it? What other explanation can there be for the fact that I know all these Bachelor guys on a first-name and character-description basis, the same way that so many husbands had to get to know Donnie, Jordan, Danny, Jon and Joe?”

    Don’t like the show at all. Could care less about It. Its waste are time being on tv. Why can’t they find love the old fashion way? Go on dates. Just for money!
