Although countless Americans look forward to the rose ceremony every Monday night, there's one person who doesn't exactly look forward to them, let alone watch.

 OK! NEWS: KIM KARDASHIAN & FAMILY GET BARBARA WALTERS BOOED ON THE VIEW During a "Reality Show Roundup" segment on The View yesterday, Barbara Walters confessed her true thoughts about another ABC hit show, The Bachelor. As pointed out by GossipCop, the legendary journalist explained, "I finally saw this show. It's an ABC show. They may fire me." After watching a clip from The Bachelor on Monday night when Ben Flajnik had an awkward make-out session, she mentioned, "It's a stupid show. All these gorgeous women are going after this guy who - well, I'm gonna say it - is less than gorgeous." OK! NEWS: RYAN REYNOLDS' DIVORCE DISCUSSED ON THE VIEW — "NOT GOING TO CRY AROUND YOU, BARBARA" A bewildered Barbara added, "All these women are mad about him. What am I missing?" Co-host Whoopi Goldberg swooped in to counter that one-two punch. "You're missing the fact that these women are just as creepy as the guy is." Hmmm, what do you think about their comments? Do you think The Bachelor is stupid and creepy or fun reality television?
