The Bachelor’s Engagement Photos Are Surprisingly Not Annoying
This season of The Bachelor has been so boring I gave up on it after Rachel and Nick went on a date in New Orleans. But still, like somebody chained to the franchise, I tuned in last night to see who Nick Viall would try and make it work with.

Engagement photos tend to bring out the worst in people.
Even your relatively chill friend who rarely even stoops to the level of Instagram PDA will get overtaken by the cliche spirit as she starts posting pictures of her and her husband-to-be holding a tied knot between them or kneeling on a picnic in the great Photoshopped outdoors, making goo-goo-eyeballs at each other.
It’s just an unspoken initiation ritual that all engaged couples take the most staged, embarrassing photos of themselves before they can settle down into domesticated bliss.
But not Nick Viall and Jessica whatever her last name is.
For a couple whose whole relationship up to this point has been completely staged, their engagement photos were refreshing down to earth.
