Somewhere in an addendum to the constitution, it is written that there is only one true conquest to find love in the great United States of America: starring on ABC's hit television series, The Bachelorette. And in this addendum, a list of characteristics defines America's greatest lover as the truest beauty of all (wo)mankind. She has patience; She creates desire; She's a world traveler; and, it's 99.9 percent guaranteed that she has already been rejected by one of ABC's own (like Sean Lowe or Ben Flajnik or even Jake Pavelka).
Yes, we're are clearly past the times of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Men no longer need to stand outside of a window to court their love. Now, all they have to do is sign up for reality television, get a handy STD test proving that they are clean, and jump in a limo as it delivers them to the front steps of The Bachelorette mansion alongside 24 other valiant men. And after all that, they have to fight to the death to hopefully win the hand of the fairest lady in America.
ABC will be announcing who America's fairest lady is Monday night — and here are the girls who are in the running for the gig. And by the way, trying to get the lead role in this show is quite comparable to running a political campaign to become the President, so we came up with the six possible contenders' campaigns for them.
