You Guys Have to See "The Bachelor"

The eleventh season of ABC's "The Bachelor" is looking more like "I Love Flavor of Rock of New York" — or whatever those VH1 reality dating shows are called. That's because the first episode, which debuts Sept. 24, features female contestants who have webbed toes, sing horribly off-key, bend themselves into impressive pretzels or go swimming while everyone else is in formal wear. They're a far cry from Pumpkin, Hoopz and Buckee, but they are the strangest bachelorette batch yet.

"Bachelor" Brad Womack, who's referred to as THE SEXIEST "BACHELOR" EVER multiple times, isn't exempt from the oddness. He continually calls his females suitors "you guys." After meeting the ladies, Womack says, "You guys have far exceeded my expectations." Yes, we know it's just an expression, but it's still a bizarre thang to say to a group of women. We won't be DVRing this "Bachelor," but we are curious to see a future episode where B.Wo will switch places with his twin brother to trick "you guys."
