Is Watching the “Bachelor/Bachelorette” an Education on “What Is a Narcissistic Emotional Abuser?”

 Whether it be Ashley Ebert’s encounter on the 2011 ABC “The Bachelorette” or the 2012 ABC “The Bachelor” show where Jake Flajnik has met his match, viewers are getting an education as to what is a narcissistic emotional abuser.
” behind the back of the woman whom he was vying to win the attention of could easily be identified as cold and callous.

No difference is present when compared to the 2012 season with Ben Flajnik when one of the female contestants on national television refers to a fellow contestant as a stripper and a home-wrecker without any evidence to support the statement.

Statistically, if the prevalence rate of narcissistic personality disorder is 4%, or one in twenty-five, is it mathematically sound to say that each season we could suspect there be one contestant exhibiting narcissistic symptoms, thus, potentially becoming a narcissistic emotional abuser?

It appears the two ABC shows mentioned earlier have been right on target.

Is this safe, however, for “The Bachelorette” or “The Bachelor?” In the event the narcissist is chosen and when the negotiations and compromises within healthy relationships is required, what happens then?

The very same venom of the coldness and callousness of the heart that took place behind the backs of “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor” will be hit head on by the unexpected.

No longer will “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor” be confused by wondering who they should believe when being told by others of the narcissist’s behaviors.

One moment the unexpected will be taken to the heights of emotional bliss and the very next moment be plunged to the depths of human pain.

Viewers of the ABC “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor” are being entertained.

Right before the viewer’s and contestant’s eyes the games a narcissistic emotional abuser plays are played.

As a viewer of the ABC “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette,” would you prefer to be entertained with or without being educated as to what is a narcissistic emotional abuser?

If you choose to be entertained without the drama and emotional pain created by narcissistic emotional abusers, perhaps a simple psychological test identifying personality disordered individuals could be implemented in the screening process for future contestants on the ABC “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.
Positive feelings that come with the hope of two humans having found lasting love.
