We know every single week on the Bachelor won’t warrant a “Crazy of the Week” column, but the first episode of Bachelor 16 certainly begged for it.
The beauty (or irony) actually falls with this week’s girl on display, Jenna Burke, who is a New York blogger who writes for The Over Analyst, and proceeded to over-analyze every aspect of her time with Ben (and without him) in the first episode. She herself said the title of her blog explained her approach to life and certain situations, and she certainly didn’t disappoint us, fully living up to her blog and self-proclaimed title.
In her own words regarding her persona as an over analyzer - “I enjoy analyzing. It’s one of the things people may consider a problem, yet it’s one of the things I really like to do. I think it makes us more interesting and leads us to new discoveries. Overanalyzing happens because you really have a deep interest in learning about life, the good and the bad. I embrace my desires, I feel inspired and I witness the beauty.”
Well said, Jenna. But I’m not sure what played out in episode one is exactly what you were aiming for.
Everyone who watches the Bachelor programs knows that every season of every show has at least one ‘crazy’ who takes things too seriously, goes over the top, over reacts, or, well you know, over analyzes.
And with Burke, we have our Bachelor Season 16 winner.
But I’m not going to try to run my mouth and make her into a raging psycho. No, she does that well enough on her own. She gets the ball rolling from the get-go with an awkward-as-hell meet and greet with Ben, but it really gets dicey at the start of this awesome clip of the cocktail party:
Oh, and Ben passed her on to episode two. Enjoy.
