In a world where we, as women, are all already comparing ourselves to one another, the last thing we need is an emphasis on this unfair comparison, and that's exactly what this Bachelorette announcement did.
Two hours of The Bachelor and you find yourself wanting to be more brave and bold when it comes to love. More open and honest and say the things you desperately know you need to but simply don't know how.
While I watch the show in part for the love stories, the other part is for the contestants (and all of their drama), of course! I decided to take a closer look at all of the contestants who go on the show, starting with what they do for a living.

Andi -- or any woman, reality star or not -- has no obligation to marry every man she has sex with. And not wanting to commit her entire life to someone just because she slept with him does not make her a "cavalier" person.
