Cynical people called

Randy Wyrick

However, cynical people have stopped by to weigh in on the reality series starring Vail Fire Stud Ryan Sutter. Among the stuff they (not us, nope) said:

“It’s a victory for all the sensitive, poetry loving guys who eat salad even when they don’t have to.”

“How fortunate that they managed to find true love during sweeps week as 30 million people watched.”

“It’s the QVC version of romance. “Attention K-Mart shoppers, we have a Blue Light Special on bachelor hunks in aisle three.’ So she goes shopping, narrows ’em down and finally makes her purchase.”

And again, for all you women who keep calling us for Ryan’s phone number, just in case things don’t work out and he needs to be comforted – knock it off. Ryan was around here for years before all this, and you paid no attention.

And quit asking us where you can get Trista voodoo dolls. You people are awful.

And to Art, who phoned to berate us for our philosophical flexibility regarding Trista, (actually, he called us “flip-flopping chickens***”) you bet we are.

We’re pretty sure they’ll be great together, and will live happily ever after. That’s our story and we’re stickin’ to it.

Movin’ right along.
